We spent new year at this great hotel. The employees are so welcoming and special attention and activities were put on to celebrate. The food was varied and tasty. The beach is clean and the sea warm and clear. Our room was really comfortable,clean, roomy and with great views. Highly recommend this hotel.

As Americans, this was a long trip. We visited Ocean Paradise for three days over New Years after a safari. It was VERY relaxing and a great way to end a trip. It was a little odd to be the only Americans at such a large resort. There was a bit of communication challenge with staff on a few issues....

We highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering a trip to Zanzibar. The staff were outstanding - helpful but unobtrusive and always with a smile. Food and general levels of service were very good. Overall a very good value for money experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean, it is as the name suggests a little piece of paradise. From your arrival at Zanzibar Airport, the resort is a meandering 45 minute journey through un-spoilt scenery, passing typical African villages where the way of life has changed little for hundreds of years. At Ocean Paradise Resort Zanzibar, you will be greeted by a blaze of colour as you sweep down the imposing driveway, saluted by a Masai warrior as you pass through the entrance gate and be captivated as you arrive in reception and look out over the resort and the azure blue sea. Mature coconut palms swinging in the breeze, white sandy beach, beautiful landscaped gardens, traditional style round chalets with pitched makuti roof, a stunning waterfall feature and the largest swimming pool in Zanzibar are just some of the sights that await you. A big smile and the greeting of "Jambo" will be the first words you hear, as you begin to feel the warmth that the people of Zanzibar are famed for. ... more   less
