From arrival to departure we were in the best hands at Bluebay Resort. We arrived in the evening, and the made sure, that we were sent to the restaurant for dinner, before it closed, and checked us in afterwards. The room was exquisite - roomy, comfy and cleany, and even included the possibility to make your own tea and coffee.... More

Visited the Bluebay Resort recently during my Zanzibar trip. Stayed at the sister property - the Sultan Sands and was able to enjoy all facilities of both hotels. The Bluebay is also a lovely resort - large expansive grounds with beautiful gardens. A stretch of lovely oceanfront fringed with a 40m thick white sand beach. During low tide the beach... More

We arrived in Zanzibar after an amazing safari in the Masai Mara. It is such a pretty location, with amazing beaches and a nice clean swimming pool - perfect place to unwind after a busy few days. Most of the staff are friendly, however some are more willing to help than others. We stayed all inclusive so you can go... More

Our first trip to Zanzibar. We loved this resort. A very nice atmosphere pervades the whole place. We stayed all incusive and if you can would recommend this. There aren't any local places to buy drinks and purchased from the htel are expensive. On the all inclusive package the range of drinks available are great. I loved the mocktails and... More

Bluebay Beach Resort and Spa was a great hotel, let down only by the level and quality of service by some of the waiting staff in the main restaurant. The problem appears to be that they run the restaurant with a lot of trainees, supported by experienced staff, and it is a bit of a lottery as to who you... More

The resort is located on the western coast with a huge white sandy beach and in a large garden-area with palm-trees. The bungalow was lovely and comfortable with a small balcony. Food-buffets offered great choices and fine food - there is something for any guest. Nice pool-bar and good nightly-entertainment around the pool. Hotel is locally a 5-star place, but... More

We stayed here for almost a week, after few days in the jungle and long flights. This was the best destination to relax and chill out. We stayed in a superior double room with a sea view (halfboard). It was almost 5mins walk away from the beach but it wasn't a fuss. If you are willing to spend more money... More

The hotel is set in lovely grounds. On half board basis we were entitled to afternoon tea/coffee which we only found out about by accident. The staff were all very friendly in fact everyone we met was friendly from the Airport staff to the locals. The restaurant where we had breakfast & dinner was overlooking the pool. The beds were...

I just spent two days at this gorgeous resort, meeting up with my friends during their 10-day-family holiday. I absolutely loved the design, the beautiful gardens, spacious public areas giving lots of private places to withdraw and dream. All the staff are very professional and extending warm and heartfelt hospitality, service is impeccable. We loved the food and cocktails from... More
