In Stone Town we stayed at the Dhow Palace Hotel. It was a beautiful hotel with great rooms for a pretty reasonable resident price (USD 70.) The location was great, it had a nice pool and the breakfast in the morning yummy and a great way to start the day.
After our evening festivities, in the morning, before we got a ride to our next destination, we decided to take a walk around. The town is quaint, peaceful and beautiful, especially after some rain. We walked down to some shops, past the waterfront and towards the ferry. We only had about an hour but it was plenty of time to realize that we had to come back and explore more.
All in all, Stone Town was a great place to visit and it is so nice that it is only about two hours away round-trip. We will definitely be spending more time there and look forward to exploring more.
