The hotel is very boring, for old couples, nothing to do at your free time, security at the hotel beach is very rude and all the time disterbed me, preventing my communication with my local frieds. Price for accomondation according these points is very high. Dont recommend to my friends and never will stay there.

We spent Easter at Dreams of Zanzibar with 2 other couples. It was a great, relaxing week ... you need not venture more than 50 m from your room to experience great cuisine in one of the 5 restaurants, a huge, sparkling pool, or the pristine white beach. Despite the size of the hotel the personal attention of the staff... More

The kids club is poorly equipped. Be... More

There were few minor problems (the phone was out of order, shower not working at its best, safe got stuck ....but they fixed that!) the outside area is beautiful, they take... More
