I was a bit concerned about going to this hotel after reading the reviews. But I shouldn't have worried. The place is fantastic, hotel is nice, service is great. We have decided to come back to this hotel next time. Thanks for everything.

Pool view rooms are perfectly located close to the pool and restaurant with a beatiful view over the turkish-blue sea. The restaurant has the most fantastic view over the sea. The staff is very friendly, but a bit slow (which is quite common on Zanzibar). The breakfast buffet is varied and good.. We also had a couple of nice dinners... More

We arrived at the hotel and the staff was very friendly. The rooms were very clean and the bathrooms extremely spacious. We were in the rooms right behind the swimming pool. This hotel is right on the beach so we went from the swimming pool to the beach and back. Rooms are spacious, mozzy nets keep out the bugs and... More

Lovely holiday! Complete rest and relaxation. Very friendly service and great concern when we arrived a day before our luggage. But nothing is ever a problem - and how else in the most beautiful surroundings? It did take some getting used to the colorless eggs, but overall the food was good. The seafood was off course bountiful, fresh and well... More

The lack of ATMs and the hotel managements stubborn and unapproachable demeanour treated to ruin our stay at Amaan bungalows. Although the lack of ATMs is not unique to Amaan, surrounding hotels (incl Langi Langi and Z) did not attempt to make a 10% profit onto of any charges paid by card. Upon arrival we were awkwardly briefed upon the... More

Crystal clear water, great location. It's right on the beach. Walk along the water line to find many places to eat. Hotel has 3 restaurants. Nice pool. Good cocktails. Rooms are spacious, a/c works and rooms have mozzie nets.Even the in-room safety boxes work.... Stunning sunsets from the hotel deck. Awesome place just to chill out for a few days.... More

This small resort was part of our overland tour of Tanzania and for the most part was a comfortable and relaxing environment. Basically an a la carte property, so don't go expecting 5-star service. Rooms were smallish but comfortable with western-style washrooms. Each room was part of a row of bungalows so quiet, quaint with no need for elevators. Food... More

Tried ordering food but it was inedible. Pizza dough was raw, only served two prawns and steak only comes as still frozen or cremated. It seems impossible to find salt, in fact this has become a running joke in our group. Some of the rooms have more than 10 people in them and these people make a lot of noise.

Dear Guest, I thank you very much for highlighting very crucial areas where we did not meet your expectations. This must not stop you from choosing Amaan any more. I apologize for the bad service that you got and this is actually very rare to happen here. At times this can happen due to a slight misunderstanding of the staff... More
