We had a very swift check in with Rocky and our room was ready for us upon arrival in the morning. The resort is beautifully maintained. Our room was very spacious but basic. The bathroom was lovely. Our only comments were that there was no TV and no tea making facilities. Also, the bed was very uncomfortable. The pool area...

Hotel offers the best entertainment we've seen so far. Italian stuff speak very little English, but it's not an obstacle you can't overcome. As a young couple we've had a blast, although I've seen old Czech couples suffer from what they called "too loud entertainment". Located on the beautiful beach, depth of the water depends on the time od 60...

A piece of Italy in Zanzibar! Beautiful location great room, Italian towels linen etc. and amazing food. This is a big resort and can cater for roughly 500 people, so not the best option if you want to be isolated. As per previous reviews, the resort is overwhelmingly Italian, so not the best option if you want to be included...
