Jan, Ramon and all staff. What an amazing couple of nights we had before moving on to another hotel. Neat, clean and very comfortable hotel, could not wish for better. Yes, and compliments to the Chef for fine dining. It will be unfair to compare with the Melia, but if I have to choose.......Azanzi. Everybody was so helpful and friendly,... More

Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful relaxing holiday. Could not find fault with anything. Lived up to all our expectations. The food was great and varied everyday. The outdoor shower was a real treat. Staff was friendly and always ready to cater to every need. Will recommend this hotel to anyone.

Make use of the site seeing advice and services of the hotel. The staff are like family after the first day! Pack less clothes. Always argue the price of stuff for 40% less than the asking price. Enjoy

Excellent value for money, beautiful hotel, friendly staff! Would definitely recommend very highly. The seafood braai on the beach on the Friday night is an absolute feast, with lobster and everything you could wish for.

I stayed at the Azanzi Beach Resort for a few days in September. I found the service excellent, and as a Vegetarian I was well fed with excellent food. Definitely recommend staying here. Julius and the rest of the staff made it an extremely welcoming experience.

This is definitely not a resort for families - there are very limited activities for children (in fact no activities !). I was dissapointed that the rooms did not have a TV and that the only TV in the entire resort was a small TV in the entertainment area that had to be shared by all residents. In terms of... More

Agreed price was $100 a night, charged price was $200 a night. Bed was damp, room not cleaned unless requested, same for fresh towels and soaps. Food was hit and miss but acceptable. Resort is otherwise really really nice, staff are friendly (mostly) and place is beautiful. Just let down in certain areas.

Dear Mr Jackson, Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, I believe the whole incident is caused by miscommunication/misunderstanding by both parties. Again we do apologies for all inconvenience caused by this. I sincerely hope that we can welcome you back at Azanzi Beach Hotel one day. Jan Luyckx General Manager Azanzi Beach Hotel More
