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.

Very helpful staff, great location and nice restaurants close by (especially Langi Langi which is great for dinner). Also a good place to meet fellow travellers. The best part was watching the sunset over the beach while we lazed in the pool! They also have a bureau de change, which is useful, although you can find better rates in Stone... More

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

Our flight was delayed for 5hours, we arrived late. The key broke as I opened the door. My wife's suitcase went missing on the plane. So very bad first night. The suitcase turned up the next morning - then we could relax. Beach is absolutely great, and Habib is the only guy to speak to if you want to organise... More

Overall, our stay at Kendwa Amaan Beach Resort was very disappointing. Firstly, upon arrival the management infuriated us; we were told our rooms would be $60USD per night however in order to pay in the currency of the country - Tanzanian Shilling, the hotel use their own exchange rate which is very favourable for them, and not so favourable for...

first of all: we are experienced travellers, and we are usually on a budget, so we don't expect luxury nor 5 stars service but... Kendwa Beach Resort is not even 1 star! we paid 90 usd for a garden view room: it looked very old and poorly maintained and not decorated, with a really old bathroom.. but it was close... More
