We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 night stay at The Z Hotel--- it far exceeded our expectations! The rooms are big and very clean.. our "sea view" room was absolutely perfect and such a great place to wind down after 8 days on safari. The service is very friendly and the hotel has pretty much everything you need for a great... More

My boyfriend and I spent three amazing nights and days at The Z Hotel after a 3 week camping safari through Kenya and Tanzania and it was undoubtebly the most wonderful hotel experience I've had (though I may have been on a high from sleeping in a real bed!). We were part of a tour group but left them at... More

Our group of 4 stayed here after a safari and being at a wedding in Dar, so were in need of some relaxation! We stayed on the B & B rate as we thought that we would try some of the other restaurants and beach bars nearby, but to be honest the food and service at the Z was by... More

My husband and I had a great time in Zanzibar at The Z Hotel. The people, food, and room were more than we expected. It is well located at the Nungwi village - one hour by car from the airport - surrounded by a great beach with transparent water, white sand and amazingly clean.We went to Zanzibar as a "detour"...

Nice beach side hotel and pool side deckchair area is ok. For the price, rooms are a bit on the small size but clean and comfortable. Bathroom is nice, big and modern. I wasn't impressed by the tiny turtle enclosure - seemed too small. Good food at the main restaurant. However service is nowhere near what should be expected. My... More

I stayed for 4 nights in July 2014. Really enjoyed staying at this place. Room wasn't big but it was adequate and tidy. The pool is fantastic, great atmosphere and has a great international feel. Cocktails were nice and restaurants served splendid food and it was great value. Service was not its strong point but most staff were very pleasant... More

We stayed at the Z Hotel for 4 nights last week. The room was perfect, all staff very friendly and great cocktails. On a very late night arrival we were received by a member of the reception with a bite to eat and a drink, this was totally unexpected. Celline Frost guest relations manager was very helpful at all times.... More
