It was great, very exotic and beautiful scenery. Main pool and private pools were very nice. A couple points you may be interested in. It is far from the airport, about an hour and the roads are very rough. The food is just ok...I wouldn't call them 5 star. Lastly the grounds are amenities are a little tired. I would still recommend however, worth noting. On that note WHEN we…

The Residence is in a superb location, rooms were of a very high standard. The staff provided excellent service, were friendly, efficient and made our stay a pleasure. We loved the bikes for getting around and helping to keep the waistline under control as the food and drink was both excellent and plentiful. Entertainment provided every night was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed all of it.

Cannot fault it! Amazing 5* luxury. The pool at the villa was advertised as a plunge pool from memory - it was much bigger, better than we could have ever expected. The dining experience at night changed round in terms of the locations of the tables - as well as the normal dining room we used the beach & around the pool. I felt this was a nice way of mixing it up. One…

Wonderful as well. Beautiful setting with very luxurious accommodations. Stayed in the least expensive type of room, but it was still a very nice villa with our own private pool.

Beautiful location and accommodations. Loved the "individual" pools. Food was good although not as good as on most of the trip. Customer service and communication was somewhat lacking at this location.

The Residence is located on a stretch of gorgeous beach and was like paradise! The staff are all so friendly and go out of their way to help you. The only downside is the high cost of the extras for example the soft drinks, additional meals, the spa and also the excursions. However, this didn't dampen our stay and we would definitely return.

Lovely accommodation, grounds and pool, food not up to standard of hotel, beach disappointing compared to other Zanzibar beaches - lots of seaweed, sea urchins and tide went out a mile.
