        We booked 2 rooms and were pretty much given a whole wing to ourselves which meant we could easily move between the rooms. All the rooms are extremely large and spatious. Also the hotel is right across the road from Zanzibar night club the main meeting point of our stay

        The rooms did not have black-out curtains which meant the sun woke us up
