    This hotel was the perfect choice for a romantic holiday. The food was consistently very good and dinner on the special event nights were excellent. We couldn't fault the service and it is clear that new management are striving to push standards even higher. There is a lovely stretch of beach which is good for swimming in the sea right in front of the resort. I just wish we didn't have to leave!

    The best things about this place are a)the location and b) the native staff. The portion of the beach that the hotel is on is beautiful and the staff is incredibly attentive and helpful. The water pressure in the shower was also very strong and there is abundant hot water. The day trip to Mnemba for snorkeling was quite nice.

    The food could have been better. Everything is buffet style and so there are many options, most of which are mediocre. I think they should plan on halving the amount of options and doubling the quality of the food taste-wise. I thought the check in experience could have been better. It was also a bit overwhelming in terms of how many people are staying there, so if you are looking for more of a secluded experience this is not the best place to stay (consider Tikitam Palms on the east coast of the island)

    - The view... Is Just stunning - Special thanks to Mr Hamadi for making my wedding anniversary a beautiful memory. Special thanks also to Mr Narayan and Mr Ghosh.

    One of the employees behaved improperly the evening I was celebrating my wedding anniversary. He wanted to express to me that he was not "happy" because I was few minutes late from my reservation time...
