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

Dear Guest, First of all i take this opportunity to thank you for the good response about us except the one issue that you had with one of my Managers. The issue was brought to my attention later and what the manager was telling you is that the dollar rate has actually been changing all the time. You are very... More

We loved Amaan beach. We were welcomed by helpful receptionist (open late reception open till 11pm.) Rooms were spacious with large bed, ensuite and safety deposit box. We stayed in the garden view room and we loved it. The wifi was by pool, restaurant and reception but not the rooms- not a problem. Views from the restaurant over looking the... 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.

I spent 5 nights at Amaan Bungalows. Overall, it was a good experience - I went north to do scuba diving (Divine Diving is on the same property, and there are other dive companies within a 5 min walk). The issues I had were not major, but should be noted. First, as it was low season, the hotel is doing... More

We stayed there for a night. The room was nice but did not match the price- could qualify for something cheaper.The worst of our stay was when we discovered that my expensive new givenchy perfume and other personal items had disappeared. Luckily, we had locked the other valuables in the safe. Also annoying was that a female cleaner kept "removing... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing Amaan for your holiday. I take this opportunity on behalf of my staff to apologize for what happened. This is the first time we have had such theft incidents, probably the room attendant took them by mistake. I again assure you this will never happen again. Thank you. More

They had good Wi-Fi and were located right on the beach. We really enjoyed their pool. Their bar served very good cocktails. We also really liked their dinner and their breakfast, which had many options to choose from!

Jambo! The entire staff was really happy to host you. You got so friendly to all the staff and this is very unique. We serve all our guest equally but when the guest becomes close to the staff then it is even easier for the guest to ask for information about Nungwi. Thank you very much and we again welcome...

great location, fantastic beach. You can swim almost anytime in the sea. Amaan bungalows have some right on the beach, they gave me one right next to the dive centre and the bar, was very noisy early morning and late at night, better to choose one further back I think. On weekends lots of local families (maybe from Dar or... More
