Not bad, could be better
La Madrugada Beach Hotel was a welcome getaway from the hustle and bustle of Stonetown. That said, it is quite isolated which is both good and bad. There was no one on the beach, constantly harassing us to purchase goods, but there was also no other real options for food, unless you got into a cab. The food was between average and good and it is all you can eat. The breakfast fruits and breads always had flies on them, which made them inedible to me. The bar service was absolutely miserable one of the three days we were there. Apparently some sort of mis-scheduling of the staff. In addition, there was only one type of whisky on offer, and not a very good one. They were unable to replace this bottle for a day. The pool and the beach area are kept clean and were very inviting, however there are not enough lounge chairs for all guests which made getting a chair quite competitive which I don't care for on holiday. Also the headrests are fixed, with no way to adjust the tilt. All in all, it's not a bad place, but they do have some work to do.

Disappointment
Very disappointing. A hotel without A/C in the heat. No working internet connection and a manager/owner(?) who is defending himself like Basil Fawlty. After staying here we went straight to the Hilton appreciating good quality and service. The staff of the hotel was very friendly but the environment was not available for them to shine.

Friendly, clean and great staff
Extremely pleasant and friendly staff. Great selection of food and it changed at breakfast every day which was good. Excellent wifi even in room for me. Flowers on bed every day lovely touch. Activities well organised. Hotel am hour from stone town and quiet little village nearby but this is perfect if you're looking for a quiet getaway.

Only if you like seclusion
My stay was quite disappointing. If you don't mind drab, small windowed rooms and are looking for seclusion with no excursions then this hotel is an affordable option. The hotel is right on a little private beach although no windows face the beach and one can barely see out the little windows either way. The outside of the hotel looks quite renovated but the rooms are fairly depressing. The worst thing is that the hotel is so far away from anything that any excursion will include high taxi expenses, more than doubling the cost of an excursion if one is more centrally located. Staff were polite however a bit inexperienced. Wifi was very unstable and my room's air conditioner did not work. Food was quite good. Management was a mix between a lovely lady and a brusque man. I cannot recommend this hotel. Better to stay in Kizimkazi where you can find much better for the same price.
