I traveled to Zanzibar by myself and felt completely comfortable at this hotel. I booked the airport shuttle through hotel and driver was waiting for me at the airport, I was greeted at reception by name with a cold washcloth and drink. My room was very nice, grounds were beautiful and food was delicious. The wifi is free and works... More

Spent a week here with the family after safari in the serengeti. Very good location, good and friendly service overall. We had 2 garden view rooms; nothing special, and a bit too small, bathroom as well, but very clean. We were surprised by the good quality of the food; we were half board so had dinner on the terrace overlooking... More

I stayed at this hotel to recover from the trek up Kilimanjaro. From the moment you arrive, you feel welcomed. They had everything sorted out and I was in my room within 5 minutes of arrival. One of the staff walked with me to the room to overview the amenities and introduce the hotel/restaurant/pool area as we went along. The... More

The reception staff are extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. Our rooms ready on the dot of 2pm. We were escorted and shown where everything was and how everything functioned. Although our rooms were not supposed to have a sea view the kids No. 8 had a partial one ours No 7 unfortunately had the restaurants in front which blocked any... More

Thank you for everything ! I've booked this hotel because I wanted to go diving and it was just close to the center. The receptionists were so nice ! We had a room with the seaview, I was speechless. The restaurant is very good, the swimming pool is beautiful, it's a very quiet place. We've done the check out on... More

I love this hotel. The staff are absolutely amazing....every single one of them. Their attention to detail, friendly but not overbearing approach and fun conversation made my stay here a great week. The food is really good and I loved my daily made to order omelette for breakfast. Rooms are functional and nicely decorated. Housekeeping do a great job of... More

In general a nice hotel with friendly staff. We arrived at the end of the ramadan which meant 4 days of Eid celebration. The hotel is placed very close to the city centre which meant extreemely loud music until 0330 two out of four nights. No information from the hotel and I would have expected some kind of compensation. We... More

We just had the pleasure of staying at the Z Hotel in Nungwi on Zanzibar for 8 days and we really enjoyed almost everything there. Lets start with the beach at the doorstep of the hotel, which is rated as one of the best beaches on the island. Understandably with it's pure white sand and turquoise waters - couldn't have...

Zanzibar was a midway point during a 5 month overland journey from Cairo to Cape Town. It happened to be Christmas so I decided to gift myself with a couple nights of beachside luxury. Waking up Christmas morning, walking out onto the balcony and watching Maasai stroll the beach, heading down to the infinity edged pool to lounge in the... More

Nice welcome and pick up. Had to complain about the initial corner room we were given which had very little daylight but after moving it was much better. The hotel feels very compact and the pool is small but the overall service, look and feel and the food was very good.
