We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Z Hotel, Zanzibar for 4 Nights. The hotel was overall very nice and we have great memories despite a couple of small setbacks. The hotel is about 50 min drive from Stone Town and Airport to the North of the Island. It will cost about $60-$70 USD for a Taxi so... More

This was my 3rd stay at the Z Hotel and although each experience is different, it never fails to exceed my expectations! I see the same faces year after year which makes it feel like a home from home. All the staff are lovely, helpful and extremely welcoming. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone!

Have just returned after spending 2 weeks at The Z Hotel. This is, by far, the best hotel I have ever stayed in. From the moment you arrive, after an hours journey from the airport, you are treated as friends. A glass of bubbly is on hand and you are escorted to your room by one of the staff, your... More

The rooms may not be the best, but are more than adequate. The food may not be the best but is very acceptable. This hotel is all about the setting. We were only there for three days but each day I found myself saying that I could gladly spend the rest of my life sitting by the pool watching the... More

Had a fantastic 10 days at the Z Hotel, I found the staff at the hotel some of the friendliest and most helpful I have ever come across which made our time there extra special. The two on site restaurants were both lovely, we tried several others along the beach but nothing compared to the extensive seafood menu here -... More

We were on our honeymoon and booked the Ocean Front Cottages, what a perfect room to stay. After the wedding and 1 week safari we arrived to the Z hotel. The room was breathtaking, we couldn't have hoped for more. The personal was just amazing making sure that we had the best time. As they knew we were there on... More

The Z hotel was great and the staff and manager Celine were very helpful. We arrived very late after a delayed flight and were given free sandwiches as we hadn't had a chance to eat. My husband was also not well and the manager went out of her way to offer assistance to help him. We had just completed a... More

We stayed at the z hotel for four nights in September. It's one of the best hotels on Zanzibar with a gorgeous setting overlooking the beach. Nungwi is a fun town and, unlike other areas of Zanzibar, it has beachside restaurants and cafes that you can leave your hotel for. It's great for scuba diving, too We were lucky enough... More

We Spent 8 relaxing days here on our honeymoon after a 5 day safari in Kenya. It was everything we wanted and more. Spent four nights in an oceanfront cottage which had the most amazing private balcony with hammock and sun loungers. The pool area is small but there were enough loungers for everyone and the beach is literally on... More

We stayed at the hotel for one week, and it was perfect! This hotel has clearly the best location at the beach. The staff is really nice and helpful, the hotel is clean and the restaurants has good food. The only downside is the breakfast, it didn't have the best options, but it had the basics. Suited for both families,... More
