It's not easy for us to describe the place where we've been a month ago. The contact with the culture, the people and the nature was amazing! The hotel was awesome, near the beach, with an excellent service, good, big and clean rooms, nice food and top level staff. Everyone has been friendly and always available to help. We've had... More

The all inclusive package is very indulgent and means you don't have to worry about carrying money on you or paying charges at the end of your stay. There is always plenty to eat and drink plus cocktails... More

We spent 4 nights in June 2014 at Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort and we really enjoyed our stay. It took a bit over one hour from the airport to reach the hotel. We used a taxi which I highly recommend. Cost was 60 USD. Police had many road blocks along to way, so make sure your driver has his paper... More

Each and every staff member was inviting, and happy to help with anything. Service with a smile, every time. It feels like we left a few of our friends behind when we left! The beach is absolutely beautiful, the many pools are well kept, there are always fluffy, clean towels for swimming and in the bathrooms. The food is excellent,... More
