Despite having the prettiest beach side rooms, accommodation was damp and smelly, beds poor, senior staff unhelpful and lacking the usual Tanzanian charm. Over-priced buffet meal was poor, and we spent no more time here than necessary.

We stayed in a waterfront room for 2 nights. The room itself is average - basic, clean, with a net, safe, and A/C but not much else for amenities. Being in a room that is literally perched above the crashing waves has its pros and cons - the views are amazing, but if you are a light sleeper the waves... More

Rooms (around the pool) were nice enough, modern and clean. Bathroom was huge and clean. Layout of the rooms around the pool and the porches was off. It was like we were living at the pool side, huge glass windows which means you have no real source of natural light if you want any kind of privacy in you room.... More

This hotel has so much potential. A wonderful location with nice rooms. Beach is stunning & a nice pool area. The staff seem so unhappy I can only imagine the management are complete bastards. You feel ripped off at every turn. They charge a massive 6% surcharge for credit cards and then try to charge you in US$ at a... More

We stayed at Amaan Bungalows on July, 2014 for scuba diving. We liked very much the white sanded beach, turqoise sea and walking on the beach. We enjoyed to have our drinks in happy hour in the hotel restaurant while watching sunset. We stayed in a room at ground floor looking to the pool. I suggest to prefer a room... More

We stayed at Amaan Beach Bungalows in August 2014. The rooms are clean, we had a room facing the pool and it was okay. The bathroom has a heater and hot water is readily available. The staff are friendly and the facility is well located and very beautiful. The pool is stunning especially at night when they have colours changing... More

I stayed two nights in this hotel, the first night in a pool view room upstairs and the second in a sea view room. The rooms were the same size and had the same furniture, a private safe, and air conditioning. Own boiler in the bathroom and you can have hot water in 15 minutes. The sea view room has... More

Note that the day long snorkelling trips leave... More

Went to this resort with family for the weekend. The resort is over an hours drive from the sea port and Zanzibar main town. The resort overlooks the white beach and the Indian ocean. It has a number of rooms. We had a room near the swimming pool. The room was basic but clean and had air conditioning as standard.... More

Wow, little bit of paradise once you drove through the village. This place's photo's don't do this place justice. It's beyond beautiful and staff always nearby to help and very friendly. We were 4 days in a seaview room which was amazing, as close to the sea as you'll ever get. Low tide beach and high tide BIG swimming pool,... More
