My wife and daughter and Myself had the Best Beach Holiday in our Lives. The Managers,Chefs, Waiters etc were at hand all the time. Food was Excellent, with a lot of Varities to choose from. Royal Zanzibar is a place where you throw your watch away and let Time pass by. I have never felt so peaceful in my life.

My wife (Abby Wilde.....wildechilde123) has already reviewed this hotel and I concur with everything she has said....this hotel is stunning !!!! I'm not very good at writing reviews so I will just add that after spending just half a day at the hotel, we decided that we would definitely put this RSBR on our list of places to revisit.
