From the moment you enter the hotel, your bags are immediately taken from your hands and a delicious cocnut drink is put into your hands instead! The rooms at this are terrific and are especially good if you are travelling with children as they can easly add baby cribs and even single beds to the enormous room. The hotel has... More

We've just come back from an amazing holiday at the Royal Zanzibar Resort. Location of the hotel is perfect, never overcrowded, food is out of this world and swimming pools are great. All the staff are extremely helpful, friendly and genuinely lovely, nothing is too much for them. We were always greeted by staff with a huge smile and a... More

We stayed at the Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort for 7 nights on our honeymoon. It was superb! The All Inclusive package is a definite must, as you can easily rack up quite a bar-tab with all the cocktails. The food was exceptional, and got better every day. The breakfast options never changed, but there is a wide enough variety at... More

We stayed here for a week after an amazing and exhausting Kenya safari. Our flight was delayed so we were late arriving. Straight away the staff were lovely. They had provided us with a lovely supper in our beautiful, huge room and allowed us to still have a couple of beers, even though the all inclusive had stopped an hour... More

It’s an ok place if you are paying less than 100 dollars per night. Anything more and this place is a total rip-off. We stayed for 5 nights and it was dreadful. First up, it’s expensive, around 500 dollars per night. Room: Below average. Housekeeping staff love to chat nonstop and drag furniture around. So if you ever want to... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort. Unfortunately, considering the consistencies with another review from a week ago, it would seem that both partners in your couple chose to post an unpleasant review. As sorry as I am that you didn't enjoy your stay, it seems most unfair that you would post... More

Paid about 500 US a night for an all exclusive "beach suite". Total ripoff... The poor and terrible comments pretty much covers our experience here. Not a place for couples, no peace and quiet and I would not value anything here at more than 100 US per night, especially not the substandard service and food. I would not recommend staying... More

We liked the Royal Zanzibar very much. It was the last stop on our trip to Tanzania. This are some of the great things: Very friendly & helpful staff Great food Fun activities The number of pools & the spatious set-up of the site are an asset

My husband, teenage son and I have just spent 4 days at the Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort.Travelling on South African passports, we did not need visas, nor did we have to pay the arrival and departure taxes. The airport is old, with no conveyor belt system for luggage, so collecting cases is a bit of a scrum, with everyone pushing... More
