My husband and I have travelled extensively and have stayed at some of the “top” hotels in the world, and weren’t disappointed when we chose to stay at the Z hotel for the last week of our honeymoon trip. The rooms, whilst not huge, were elegantly finished and well appointed. The bar and restaurants were great areas to relax and... More

Approached our stay here with slight tripidation due to some previous reviews but were pleasantly surprised. Starting with the surroundings, Zanzibar is a very poor country and the surrounding area reflects that so the first things i'd say is don't come to Africa without realistic expectations of what you'll find here! That said, the hotel itself is gorgeous. Very modern... More

After reading some of the reviews on here I wasn't sure what to expect as they went from one extreme to the other but as soon as we arrived I knew we had made the right choice!! When we got there we were greeted by 2 guys on reception who gave us complimentary drinks and some wet towels to freshen... More

We stayed there mid august for part of our honeymoon, after waking up at 6am everyday for our safari it was sooo nice to sleep in (well a little). Room was wonderful, like the nice touch of having the TV inside the mossy nets so you could still see it. Not very much to do during the day but that... More

We stayed at the Z hotel, Nungwi for 2 nights of our honeymoon. I made the booking via the hotel's website and incurred no problems and always had prompt responses. We paid 350 USD per night B&B for the sea front cottage. This room really had wow factor - you enter into the large sitting area which has glass doors... More

We have just returned from Zanzibar and we stayed at the Z Hotel for 7 nights. Our stay there was amazing! Rob the general manager and his wife Julie are absolutely great. We had only just arrived and Julie was over within minutes providing a warm welcome. Rob was always making sure our stay was relaxed and we were happy... More

We stayed at the Z hotel for 8 nights In August and thought it was the most fantastic place. We are very well travelled but this was one of the best hotels we are have ever stayed. The location on the beach is fantastic and waking up every morning with that view was just wonderful. The staff were lovely and... More

The Z hotel was nothing like the website and the service was terrible from beginning to end. We booked for 7 nights, but we only stayed for one night, because of the horrible conditions at this hotel. It is more a 2 star hotel than the described "boutique on the beach". The staff is totally unqualified and the rooms were... More

We stayed in the Z hotel with our friends & families for our wedding. We had a great time and a perfect wedding day and I would recommend the hotel to anyone without hesitation. It's a very beautiful place in an interesting location. The guys who run the hotel (Rob, Keith, Aoife, Ruth, etc.) tried their very best to make... More
