If you want an 'all inclusive' chillax in a great resort with nothing to bother you then look no further than the Dream of Zanzibar. It is particularly suited to couples rather than teenagers or groups looking to be entertained. Accommodation in our junior suite was very generous although the jacuzzi bath for us was a bit gimmicky and unused.... More

Unique location with a large laguna full of life. You can walk to the rif at low tide. The main restaurant with a buffet has a large choise. Excellent pasta's and sauces & real espresso coffee. Influence of the Italian owner can be tasted. Child friendly hotel. Due to the many steps (I think 74) to go to the beach,... More

This place is nothing but pure heaven on earth. It's a paradise. I got a group of 26 Zambians to celebrate our independence jubilee in Zanzibar and I couldn't ask for a better place. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The meals were so lovely and the all inclusive package was the best. We drunk so much and danced... More

The food all day was very good - breakfast at the hotel, lunch on the sea with burger or sushi, and dinner at one of 5 different restaurants. The pool is great... More

We visited this resort for our honeymoon for 7 nights in September 2014 and had no regrets at all! Upon arrival we were upgraded to a junior suite which offered a private balcony and amazing views of the white sand and picture perfect Indian Ocean. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean as was the bathroom. The suite was also... More
