Great for the price
Lovely staff, but need more training to be 3 star standard - think management are on the case though. Relaxed place. Beach a bit small and rocky. Dinner buffets surprisingly good. Jetty bar lovely for sunsets. Remote from other restaurants and villages so be prepared to eat all meals there. Do go snorkeling - we swam in the ocean with dolphins while doing so. If you had a week I'd recommend a couple of days in Stone Town and 5 nights here because it's quite far from Stone Town and many other island attractions.
