Okay I guess but next time I'll be staying..
...Elsewhere... Booked an ocean view room based on reviews. Room was small and smelled like mildew. The manager said it's probably in the walls. I asked to check out another room but it had the same problem. I was only staying for 4 nights so I had to deal with it. A/C was more like a fan. Not cold at all. Food is only served at certain times of the day which is ridiculous for a resort. I was late to lunch by 3 minutes and was denied lunch. I was willing to pay for it - but the kitchen staff didn't want to assist me. I spent my money at another resort. Really ridiculous. I'm on vacation - why in the world would I need to order food during certain times. Staff was hit or miss. Some were very nice but manager seemed to care less. Tide swings massively here and don't expect a long white sand beach. Most days there was no beach and the certain amount of sand here is covered by high-tide twice a day. According to hotel tides are less noticeable during rainy season. As such - you'll spend your time poolside or laying on a chair on the hotel deck and not on the beach out front.. Breakfast wasn't bad. Lunch (if you're on time) was dismal. Dinner was good most nights. Massage therapist on duty was great. Go at high tide so waves break close to spa. Will put you to sleep. I spent most of my time down the road and volunteered at a local school teaching English to the kids during the days. Nungwi is exploding - lots of options. Keep looking.

Great beach front views. Good budget hotel. Food was a little awful and was a bit far from the main town so it was hard to get other options especially in the evening. Staff a lovely.
