We spent new year at this great hotel. The employees are so welcoming and special attention and activities were put on to celebrate. The food was varied and tasty. The beach is clean and the sea warm and clear. Our room was really comfortable,clean, roomy and with great views. Highly recommend this hotel.

It was a little odd to be the only Americans at such a large resort. There was a bit of communication challenge with staff on a few issues.... More

We highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering a trip to Zanzibar. The staff were outstanding - helpful but unobtrusive and always with a smile. Food and general levels of service were very good. Overall a very good value for money experience.

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
