8/10 Very good

Beach side and secluded
Very friendly owners and staff, beautiful set up, just a minute walk to the beach. The location felt very secluded and safe. Especially appreciated the detailed guest book with info and expectations. Rooms are all pretty close together with screens but no glass in the windows, so sound can be an issue, especially if other guests are partying.

Love this place Casa Umoja
The hotel staff were so friendly. The breakfast every morning was so fresh and delicious. Rooms were nice. Many hammocks to relax on. Walking distance to everything. I left my wallet in Stone Town and the guy from the hotel was going so he picked it up for me and brought it back. He refused to take money for doing it too!
