Iniatially, we were not going to stay at Amaan Beach Bungalows since we booked two room at Magharibi House. Since they did not have the rooms for us after our arrival, we decided to cancel the booking and tried to find something else. We found Amaan Bungalows that provided us with clean rooms, nice breakfast with a wonderful beach just... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. The rooms were ok, but regarding the restaurant, it might take an hour to get drinks or food. The staff are really polite, but not wery efficient. (We also stayed other places in Nungwi where the food and drinks came much faster) it's a relatively cheep place to stay, but eat... More

We stayed two nights here and it really is a lovely spot. There is a large pool, dinning area and bar which are basically right on the beach. The sunsets from the bar are fabulous! The breakfasts were good, a buffet with a good selection of food. All the staff were great, friendly and very helpful. The evening meals were... More

We stayed here as part of a G Adventures trip (who did an amazing job by the way). Hotel is basic but nice. Pool area is lovely and location, particularly the beachfront rooms is excellent. Lovely welcoming gift as we were on our honeymoon. Main down sides were the poor service, especially in the bar/restaurant area, and the quality of... More

We stayed in a garden bungalow - the room was dark, smelt damp and could do with some serious revamping - bath tiles and grout needing attention. However as not much time is spent in the room we decided to stay put as it was only 3 nights. The beach or pool bungalows look much nicer with decent airflow and... More

This place is just paradise.. I am writing this review while watching the beautiful surroundings this place has. Accommodation are great, pleasant and professional staff. Dive at the pool or in the sea or do both since it is few steps away from each other. We did snorkeling which we would recommend to anyone. In the evening a few restaurants... More

Our stay was ok, a pretty basic room but fine enough. Our issue was the payment by credit card. All prices were stated in shillings but when we paid by card they converted it to usd at 1600 (the rate should be around 2000), however they fail to mention this when we checked in. On top of this they charge... More

Having read a few reviews about Zanzibar I was rather cautious not to expect anything stunning. This place provides stunning sunset view. Never seen the waters so blue. The food was alright. Zanzibar is pretty much a poor island. Most hotels charge in excess of $100 BB per night but have lower than average facilities. Keep your expectations down low.
