Dream of Zanzibar was great! I only spent 3 nights there but every moment was amazing. The security; peace; tranquility; friendly smiling staff ever willing to help. I celebrated my 35 year anniversary and the Manager of food and beverage was so great in arranging a quaint table setting on the beach - very romantic - and the seafood! I've... More

Lovely beach location. Rooms are tidy and have all you need, disappointed there was no beach view with my room though, this seems to be reserved for the pool & restaurants rather than hotel rooms. Wifi is only available at reception. The resort provides plenty of activities including fantastic themed nights, watch the local cut down the coconuts and guests... More

For anyone planning a perfect hideaway on a tropical island, stop searching, you found it: it's called "Dream of Zanzibar" and very well deserves it's name. It's got it all: a wonderfully kept garden with luxurious vegetation and exotic plants everywhere, comfortable and spacious rooms with kingsize beds covered with multicolored flower petals every day, a fantastic deserted palm fringed...

For our honeymoon in November 2013, we went to Dream of Zanzibar. The hotel, which is an "all-in" resort, is excellent. The staff is super-friendly and helps you as much as possible. This is always done with the necessary "djambos" and "hakuna matatas", but the customer is really considered king and queen in Dream of Zanzibar. The hotel room was... More
