After a tiring week on Safari, we spent 10 days in this wonderful resort in Zanzibar. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind after the hectic schedule the week before. Its difficult to know where to start with the gushing praise! The rooms were huge, clean and bright with the most wonderful views of the beach/sea. The food... More

Excellent and comfortable hotel to stay with family. Friendly staff esp Mr. Robert F&B supervisor. Great facilities but kids club missing. Vegetarians are taken care off but could be better. Theme nights were great esp the beach dinner. Overall a must visit and stay in hotel. Great fun

We have just spent a week in this lovely resort. The staff and hotel were wonderful and the trips we took to the snorkling spots with Captain Marko Polo who sells from the beach with his boat Tata were the best and cheapest by far. Entertainment at the hotel was excellent a different theme every night

My wife and I stayed here recently and I would say this hotel is just wonderful. We stayed on a fully inclusive basis and the selection of food was just great. Done on a buffet style there is plenty of choice probably too much to quote it all but included meat, fish, fresh pasta, piazza and kebabs all available plus... More

We just had an amazing time! I can't express how much the staff (Thanda, Robert and all the rest of the them) go out of their way to make you feel happy, welcome and relaxed - nothing was too much for these guys. Who knew that Hakuna Matata wasn't just something from the Lion King!? :-) The pools are just... More

My husband and I were booked into the Royal as part of a safari package. I must admit, we had never been to a all-inclusive resort and did not know if we would enjoy it. While I learned that resort livening is probably not for me, a few things might have improved my stay. All meals were a buffet as... More

Everything about this resort is awesome. The one hour journey from the airport was eye opening and fascinating. And then you turn down a track and this resort appears. Magnificently designed and laid out. Space everywhere: the delightful manicured grounds and gardens, the very impressive and multiple infinity pools, the communal areas, bar and restaurant areas, the private beach and... More
