A stunning beach and friendly staff to welcome us for 10 days in paradise... Zanzibar is larger than I had forseen in my minds eye... There is so much to see and do and it soon becomes clear that tourism is at the core of survival for a large portion of the population... Poor villages border the extravagant beach resorts... More

We stayed here for the last three days of our Africa adventure and what a great place it was to unwind. Quiet, peaceful on a beautiful beach where there are still shells in the sand. The staff are so friendly and willing to help out n any way. The GM has done a great job with the place and she... More

The Z Hotel offers everything one needs on vacation in Zanzibar: great accommodation, a clean beach and pool area, amazing food and drinks, distinguished customer service, tours, and guaranteed satisfaction. I would recommend this hotel for any type of traveler, even backpackers that are seeking more comfort for a certain period of time.

Fantastic lunch at the Z. Catch of the day was a great option. Service friendly and succinct. Great elevated view of the ocean. Most recommendable. In a nutshell a great place to relax and enjoy Nungwi.

This is a difficult review to write because although we encountered several problems they were brilliantly handled by Celine, one of the management team, so it seems churlish to complain! We were upgraded from our initial rooftop suite to the Z suite which is a lovely room, overlooking the beach with its own private terrace, as well as a balcony.... More

Julie was an outstanding Manager & addressed our concerns quickly & efficiently. We utilised all the services- fabulous lunches & dinners enjoyed in both Cinnamon (try the Pizza & Chicken Masala) &... More
