I stayed here on a short business trip. I did not have much time to enjoy the hotel facilities, but everything was pretty good, from the room, food and service. I used the pool and that was warm, though not the clearest water. I would stay here of I came to Zanzibar again.

My stay in at the Zanzibar Beach Resort was overall very good. Rooms are spacious and tidy. I had a great view on the ocean. The pool is great and the whole facility looks really good. Improvements can be made for the breakfast and food in general.

Zanzibar beach resort was a very accomodating place to be with a group of 7 children and their parents. They organised early breakfasts and diners for us with a big friendly smile. I can not fault the service of Amit and his team. However the rooms were tired, very hard mattress and pillows. Also their pool parties were very inappropriate...
