I cannot recommend this place enough, even if (speaking as a traveller on a budget) it is a little expensive.

It cost at time of writing TSH 16,000 per night, which includes breakfast. That's about £9. If you want you can camp on site for about TSH 3000, but that doesn't include breakfast. Besides, I truly recommend the rooms- these are traditional beach huts. They aren't particularly well facilitated or even that secure but they look absolutely brilliant and go with the palm tree/blue ocean fell perfectly.

The breakfast is a starter of fruit salad and fruit juice, followed by toast, sausage, and egg of your choice (spanish omelette, plain omelette, boiled, poached, scrambled or fried seem to be the options... they didn't understand my request for a cheese omelette). It isn't a substantial breakfast but compared to some of the others I've tried it's pretty good! With regards to drinks, you'll want to bring your own teabags and milk, as only coffee is provided.

The bar is very pricey indeed- about TSH 3500 (or £2) for a vodka and Sprite. Do what I did and buy a sachet of vodka from one of the local shops for TSH 800 (where you have 2 shots in each sachet), then just buy the Sprite from the bar to mix with.

Meals are available, offering Western food such as spaghetti bolognese for about TSH 8000, though some of the seafood dishes reach up to TSH 18,000 so it isn't the cheapest of places to eat. I managed to find a buffet place offering basic, staple food for about TSH 1500, and one of the local bars (Top Life Bar) offered some tasty meals for TSH 3,500.

The beach is just a few feet from the beach huts I stayed in with the hotel. It is quite a deserted beach, with not too many locals wandering around, although I was interrupted mid-sunbathe by a local trying to sell me a machette. Expect this anywhere in Tanzania!

The staff and management are very helpful indeed. One of my friends had terrible sunburn on his feet- the staff gave him some free medical attention.

Arranged a boat trip out to the sandbanks to go snorkelling. I highly recommend it! Just speak to the management- it cost about $180 US for 11 of us.

Overall, highly recommended as a great end to your stay in Tanzania. It's a little more expensive than the budget hostels I was used to, but you cannot put a price on the experience I got there. You won't be disappointed!
