We have stayed here for 8 nights and it was the best deal I could get on the internet! This is my 4th visits to Zanzibar and staying at La Madrugada has been the best! The staff is friendly and rooms are cleaned twice a day and decorated with flowers. Breakfast is fruit , egg and even pancakes! We have... More

Fantastic hotel, lovely staff, service was superb! Location on the island was perfect for me and my boyfriend, quiet and very romantic! Thanks to everyone there especially the manager (Juergen) for making our holiday so magical! Would recommend this to anyone who wanted Paradise.... Short taxi journey to Jambiani for nightlife! Perfect! X

The hotel is very nice, is's clean, the staff is friendly and the price is good. The pool area is beautiful and the beach is beautiful too. The location is a bit out of the way, but it's only 1 hour 10-15 minutes by car to Stone Town and the western side of the island. To Paje it's 15 minutes... More

This is a really nice hotel, but it is on the south side of the island. If you would like some peace and quiet, and I mean really quiet, this is the place to go. Really nice staff, nice rooms, nice pool and very good price. Would not stay again, but that's only because of the location

Dear Gunnhild Thank you very much for your review. I know that you have not been satisfied as here around is no nightlife. Like we wrote already on our homepage this is a place for relaxing. Keep in mind that you have to go to Jambiani, which is 10 km north, when you want to have partys and excessive nightlife. More

Although the hotel was far away from the stone town, our stay there was more than awesome!we were a bunch of volunteers coming from Nairobi just for the weekend. We enjoyed the great food in the buffet, swam in the swimming pool, drank amazing cocktails and most important stayed in an excellent condition rooms. You also feel the african spirit... More

The territory of the hotel is very well arranged, nicely kept and looks just eyes-capturing! Staff is very polite, attentive and friendly. Nice kitchen with good choice and quality of meals, however breakfast is something that needs to be improved - there is no that much variety of food. Arranging the different tours is done very easy and simple -... More

We stayed in this beach resort for 2 nights, we were 12 friends in total, different nationalities but working in Nairobi. When we first arrived after the tours in Stonetown and Hakuna Matata Spice Farm, we were welcomed with cool hand towels and fresh fruit juice and the friendly manager, Solomon. Immediately, one of my friends, a french guy asked... More
