Terrific hotel with wonderful pool, views, right on the beach, good food selection and quality, superb staff. A bit pricey for being right in stone town (and therefore not on the nicest beach), but a great place to stay for those who don't have time to get out to the further parts of the island
Big clean comfortable beds, spacious room, great wifi, fridge in the room, excellent tv reception with lots of channels We didn't have hot water the first day. They fixed it the second, but the water pressure wasn't very good- I don't have thick hair and it took awhile to rinse the shampoo out... It's set back a ways from road so you need help with your bags an the food in the restaurant is limited and prices are high. Better breakfast at the Serena
Had the best experience at this resort. Staff was super nice. They remember uour face and make sure you are comfortable and part of the group. Room was stunning and right on the beach As a vegetarian, i didn't have too many options. It was either rice with veggies or potatoes. Maybe add more options
Nice building and location. The room had a strong smell of mould. It was advertised as 33 m² but was not more than 11 m². There was barely room to get into the bed on either side of the single bed. The room was advertised as having a double bed. Since my night there, I have had a persistent chronic cough.
I stayed at Karafuu Beach Resort and Spa for three nights and now I am kicking myself for not booking a longer stay. The grounds are lovely and the location breathtaking. I enjoyed daily walks on the beach. The beach was relaxing with no crowds, a few local shops and eateries and a smattering of local boats. I liked the fact I could see some local life. I did not book excursions, but one could easily do so with locals on the beach (at a better rate than the hotel offers). The room was spacious. The breakfast buffet was extensive, with many vegetarian options. Although a bit more "touristy" than I typically like, I really enjoyed my stay and I would definitely recommend the hotel. The internet was very slow and I was only able to access WiFI in the lobby area. The seafood night had very few vegetarian options. I was really looking forward to the Masai dinner night (typically Mondays and Fridays). However, the hotel changed the Friday dinner to Thursday night and I was completely unaware of this change. I was really disappointed to have missed the Masai dinner as I made dinner reservations offsite for Thursday and did not learn of the switch until Friday evening.
