    Facilities are good but no bath and the shower is fairly basic. However, the service much better. The seafood was excellent; wine not so. The ambiance is tropical and one of comfort. The ruins on site add a historic touch. Sunsets are magnificent.

    How often does the shuttle run to and from Stone Town, and earliest and latest times? Also, do I understand correctly that the shuttle to and from the airport is $100 US dollars each way? How much would a taxi cost for a trip to or from the airport?

    I would like to know the earliest and latest shuttle times into Stone Town, and how often it runs. Same as shuttle to and from the airport.

    We used the shuttle - I think it runs in and out 3 times a day, at 9:00, 12:00 and 3:00 (ish). The hotel is only 15 minutes from Stonetown, so you can easily grab a taxi in town to go back to the hotel whenever you want.
