It's a great hotel at a beautiful beach. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the ocean, which I recommend because the sunset is wonderful and you want to sit there and watch it in the evening. The room was modern and had everything we needed, it's not very big but you don't spend much time inside anyway. The... More

This place is centrally located in Nungwi so we could explore this side of the island easily on foot. Staff was extremely polite and attentive... More

The beach was cute but unfortunately full of flys which was really disturbing. We were a group of friends and actually this place... More

I stayed for one night at the Z hotel, after spending four nights at the Amaan Bungalows next door! The hospitality at this place was so amazing I wished I had stayed longer! At check in, I was welcomed by smiles from the front desk, and a refreshingly cold towel, which is very thoughtful as Zanzibar is hot and humid,... More

The bar has a happy hour (2 hours long) and there are a number of restaurants on the property as well as others within walking distance. the sea-view rooms are amazing... More
