This hotel is truly amazing and the staff go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. From the time we arrived to departure, we were treated like royalty. 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

Upon arrival we were given an amazing reception, cool juice and ice cold towels by extremely professional staff. We had a tour of the hotel, it is small, intimate and that suits me as I was there to relax, write and study. Not a single, small child in sight and that added to the tranquility! The rooms and tastefully furnished,... More

From the moment I booked, Z hotel staff has been amazing and VERY helpful! I changed dates and extended my preview booking, and Celina always made my life easier. The first night I stayed at the Cottage 2, what is worthy every penny! You have your own deck over the ocean for sun bathing, there is also a table, you... More

I spent 10 days at the Z Hotel with my girlfriend after spending two weeks travelling around southern africa. This is a brilliant and relaxing hotel. The staff are really friendly and the location of the hotel on the beach is fantastic. The view from the swimming pool is second to none and as a result we struggled to tear... More

Spent four days in Zanzibarwith my wife, two nights on the beach at Nungwi and two nights in Stonetown. The drive from the airport is long but gives you a good idea of island life. We used the hotel shuttle and the driver was very accommodating to stop along the way. Its more expensive than the local taxis BUT the... More

We stayed at the Z Hotel after my boyfriend and I got engaged. Hotel Z upgraded us to the rooftop suite which was amazing. The staff were superb. The hotel grounds were kept clean. We really enjoyed the breakfast Buffet. It was more than adequate to jumpstart your day. The beach the hotel is on is amazing---great swimming and there... More

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
