Banal, perhaps, as a title, but not too far from truth. Konokono is very pretty, charming, cleverly built. Very comfortable, with very big rooms ("villas"), well appointed and well kept. The open air restaurant and the beach bar are both pretty, charming and romantic, the quality of the food is excellent (though, at the price, one would expect that more... More

With a breathtaking location, Kono Kono is supposed to be one of the best places in all Zanzibar... But: Arrival by the last 2 Kms it's not a way to arrive into a luxury hotel because of it horrible manteinance. Staff is veeeery kind but not really professional. Rooms are very nice and big and it feels you very comfortable.... More

Dear Mr Ventura, thank you for your review. It is sad to read these comments especially after having spoken with you everyday during your stay asking if everything was okay. As for the road, we have explained that we have began to smooth it now. We consider every critic very seriously to improve our services but we can't agree with... More

We chose Kono Kono as a "wind down" spot after a 2 week safari and we could not have selected a better arrangement. Everything about the experience was OUTSTANDING. The entire staff from the General Manager to the cleaning crews went out of their way to provide excellent and attentive service. The setting is amazing, the food very good, the... More

My mantra in life is time is money and doing nothing is worth gold ! A perfect place for this. So if you expect a lot of animations and kids and activities , don't come in this hotel. If you look for service, nice view, great villa's, this is a good place to relax. Perfect after a safari. Romina, Maurizio... More

Excellent place to stay. No complaints at all. The beach, the villas, the food, the staff, everything is to be complimented. A special thanks to Romina who attended to all our needs during the stay. It also has to be noted that the General Manager (Maurizio) is exceptional at his job. He is on the premises morning, noon and night... More

Kono Kono has made our vacation on Zanzibar a perfect one! The warm welcome and caring throughout our stay by the General Manager, the reception, the Operations Mgr and the service team was absolutely great! The beach with its fine sand, space and service (we got small cool towels and little fruit sticks free of charge every day) was fantastic... More

As others have noted, this is an idyllic, white-sand, palm tree-fringed resort with very comfortable, large, individual villas, set in lovely gardens. Local staff are uniformly welcoming and charming and the food is of a good quality. Our experience as a family of four was that virtually all the other guests were honeymoon couples, but this did not in any... More
