Spent 3 nights with my wife after doing 6 nights at Gold Zanzibar (separate review available). Honestly, I am not sure what is all the hype about this property. The good: - front desk staff, the manager, most of the other staff; - acknowledged our special occasion; - gave us a room with no charge for late checkout; That's it.... More

I spent three nights at the Z Hotel and loved every moment of it. From the moment we arrived we were greeted warmly by the staff. All staff were very friendly and accommodating. The facilities were great and everything was nice and clean. The restaurants had a good selection of food and drink at reasonable prices, the breakfast always left... More

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
