    Well the hotel and spa are 5 stars... The food isn't... So if just like me, you love your food, well it's not bad, but could be much better.

    ... At first it was easy they just show with hands where to go and you just go and then you ask again. Also I should mention that streets in Stone Town reminds labyrinth, and I had never seen nothing like this before.

    ... Every place we have been serves lots of food! At dinner several guests shined their flashlights across the river (about 20 yards away), and there was a mama hippo with 2 young hippos beside her. Later from the porch of our Banda we heard splashing. One of the young hippos had crossed and was out of the water just below our cottage.
