Given the overall level of poverty on Zanzibar, it's astonishing that such a well manicured, 'perfect' family hotel could exist, but it does. Great staff, good evening entertainment, clean and well designed rooms, and lovely food. Beach hawkers a bit of a nuisance, but it's the same globally. A better place for families with teenagers, and it really is a... More

We had a very pleasant stay after a safari on the mainland. The rooms are great, the food is good and varied, and the beach is absolutely great. Don't hesitate to visit the coral reef when the tide is low, but don't forget your shoes (millions of urchins).

The resort was the ideal getaway for our honeymoon. We got more than we expected and we couldn't be happier with the service. The view of the white sandy beach is breathtaking we couldn't ask for more.

My husband and I stayed at Ocean Paradise for 10 days at the end of June.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean, it is as the name suggests a little piece of paradise. From your arrival at Zanzibar Airport, the resort is a meandering 45 minute journey through un-spoilt scenery, passing typical African villages where the way of life has changed little for hundreds of years. At Ocean Paradise Resort Zanzibar, you will be greeted by a blaze of colour as you sweep down the imposing driveway, saluted by a Masai warrior as you pass through the entrance gate and be captivated as you arrive in reception and look out over the resort and the azure blue sea. Mature coconut palms swinging in the breeze, white sandy beach, beautiful landscaped gardens, traditional style round chalets with pitched makuti roof, a stunning waterfall feature and the largest swimming pool in Zanzibar are just some of the sights that await you. A big smile and the greeting of "Jambo" will be the first words you hear, as you begin to feel the warmth that the people of Zanzibar are famed for. ... more   less
