The swimming pool is lovely, the food very good and you can make trips to everywhere on the island with Dina's own driver Suleyman. Rooms are basic, but do have airco and... More

The Guesthouse is on the other side of the bay from StoneTown, so it's very private and relaxing. There are games galore, a jigsaw puzzle set out, books to read, a delightful swimming pool, and miles of beach to walk on. There are also many excursions available; we opted for the StoneTown History Tour and the Spice Tour, both very... More
