Its always nice to enter the Blue bay beach resort after a long drive from the Zanzibar airport. Was amazed by the welcoming staff, and our dinner was served indoor (actually it was a late dinner) i couldn't imagine getting fresh food at the middle of the night. Lovely large rooms and a nice huge bed, they have variety of... More

After 3 weeks on safari, this was a welcome rest for a couple of days. The resort could of been in Fiji, Australia or Thailand, it is all formula, white sands, palm trees and a lovely swimming pool. We found the service very good and after being in Africa for 3 weeks were not fazed by any little misunderstandings about... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bluebay for five nights second week in September. Pretty good beach resort with good food and services. Very helpful staff especially on our last night when our flight was cancelled and we were running a risk of missing our onward flight from Nairobi to London. When our tour operator would not get us... More

My Mum and I stayed in this lovely beach resort in May. Despite visiting Zanzibar in the rainy season, we were very pleased with the hotel and very lucky with the weather(!), and thus, would highly recommend visiting in the low season. All the staff at the hotel were very friendly and accommodating - the service was excellent in the... More

Pretty good beach resort. Awesome welcoming. The food was average. Quantities of food seemed limited during a seafood night buffet. Preferred to go for dinner to its sister (Sultan) resort next door. Ditto for lunch.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel from 28th August to 1st September 2014. Being our first time in Zanzibar, we didn't know what to expect. The stay was amazing right from check in. Even though we arrived quite late (around 1am), there was a team waiting for us, ready to show us around and give us a brief.... More

This is the hotel to stay in on the Island of Zanzibar. Not only is the service excellent, but also the staff and the members of the management. I lost my suitcase and they did everything they could to get it back for me - they succeeded after four days. Apart from that, they organised a dinner party for me... More

After our safari we wanted to spend a few days on the beach. We where booked in the Blue bay beach resort and I must say after reading some of te reviews we certainly had some doubts. However we where told that the resort had been closed for several months beginning this year for a complete overhaul / renovation. We... More
