Absolutely horrible service and general manager. Food not delicious and repetitive, dirthy common areas and bathrooms. Low water pressure. And if you want to change anything good bless you, the management will not do anything without approval of the head office, which is in italy and does not reply, so al a client you get stuck with fully paid vacations...

I went to this resort with my mother in law and my little daughter. The beach is pristine, but with all the villagers that wait for the fisherman to come back it is a bit uncomfortable. Service could not be worse. Food tossed and quite repetitive not quality whatsoever. The evening entertainment is based on bad words and sex allusion.... More

Visited Eden Village after a hard day of parasailing and water skiing on Kendwa Beach. A very busy facility, it is well located with lovely ocean front views. The beach is quite pretty too. My impression though, was that it caters to (really) large groups. When I went through, there were mainly Italians. The place appears to be lively and... More

Me and my wife stayed there 4 years ago (jan 2011) and we really enjoyed it! The beach is world class and the rooms was very nice. At the time we was there, there was no electricity at all. Only 3-4 hours a day with the generator. We can not comment the food because they did not have much of... More

IT IS TIME TO MAKE SOME MAJOR CHANGES. I am good travel, which is used to go either 5 star hotel as more adventurous eco friendly. Eden Village is neither acceptable quality nor service by ANY standard. Zanzibar is a beautiful island that deserve a trip, but unless you are a cheap single or couple with no traveling experience and... More

This is hotel doesn't accept walk-in guests, so don't make a mistake of walking in. However, the restaurant is open to public and it was a beautiful location. The food was tastefully prepared and I'm very happy with the quality and the price. The service was also very good. I will certainly go back.

We tried to walk up to the reception at Eden to inquire about their rooms. However, upon attempting to walk up, we were assaulted by a guard employed by the hotel who did not speak any English (I think you have to be Italian to stay in this place? ) and physically blocked our way including grabbing me (a small...

Can't say I enjoyed may stay here, although the location is great. I experienced the same problem as a previous reviewer with currency conversion when trying to pay the bill using cash. They insisted the US dollars were converted to Canadian dollars (the owners now reside in Canada but are locals) before that got converted to Tanzania shillings. Absolute robbery,... More

We stayed at the Amaan Kendwa in November 2007. The Resort is very well placed and it looks just the way 'postcards' show island resorts. The Resort has different types of rooms (beach bungalows, villas...). We stayed in a villa caled Kartoon Villa. The view was fantastic. The rooms have been upgraded. Our room had a mozzie net, airconditioner, cupboard... More
