We stayed at this resort for 12 nights from 24/11/14 until 06/12/14. If anyone is thinking of a beach holiday in Zanzibar, they should seriously consider choosing the Ocean Paradise. The rooms - which are circular - are spacious and well equipped with minibar, safe, TV, hair dryer, air con, balcony & toiletries. The public areas, grounds, gardens & swimming... More

Spent 4 nights at this beautiful resort, as part of a conference. Fantastic place, eager, helpful, friendly staff. Excellent cuisine, lovely setting. Not much more one could ask for. But, there is one thing! Please sort out the wifi, not everyone is on holiday, some of your guests are there to work, unfortunately.

We stayed for two weeks at this hotel (01st - 15th November 2014) and it was really nice. Although a heavy thunderstorm occurred the first two days, which made me a little bit sad, it was beautiful and hot when the sun came out and we had a good time. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent.... More

That progressed in to a thunderstorm which lasted with the rain for the first day and a bit. Once the sun came out it was even better. We had upgraded to a... More
