This is a 5 star property with almost all the amenities you would expect of an all inclusive resort on the Northeast Coast of Zanzibar. Comfortable rooms, attentive staff, good food (mostly) a safe beach, Masai guards and the warm Indian Ocean. They had a reasonable range of activities but we only took advantage of snorkelling as we did the... More

We have just returned from The Blue Bay Hotel after a stay of three weeks. It was an absolute delight to stay there. Everything, from the very friendly, helpful staff down to the excellent selection of food, to the wonderfully comfortable bedrooms made this holiday stand out for us. A special mention must go to Duncan Barati, the Front Office... More

This resort has everything. Fro the golden sands of the private beach to the bright and airy rooms, from the amazing buffet at every meal to the watersports facilities (including a memorable scuba diving trip, makes this hotel special. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and the whole place is clean, which may seem simple but makes a lot... More

I vacationed here with my family and the following stood out for us: a) Clean Pool. b) Great service from the rooms, restaurants and pool - both from the staff at Blue bay and Sultan Sands. c) Great buffet with very well prepared food- especially at the Sultan Sand.

I have just returned from seven days in Zanzibar, staying at the Sultan Sands (2 nights) and Blue Bay (5 nights) Resorts, which I thoroughly enjoyed. We chose this location for a small conference and I cannot say enough good things about this hotel (and I include Sultan Sands in these remarks). Every hotel in the world is made of... More

While we were there there were not a lot of people staying at our hotel but the sister hotel next door was quite busy. We... More

The hotel is located 30kms away from the airport but they do have the option of an airport transfer. The staff are very friendly and the buffet has a few very well prepared items (one is not overwhelmed by too many average menu items)... Great spaces for relaxing and generally a lovely place to spend a quiet Island holiday

Have returned again and again to Bluebay as I find it the perfect mix of casual, comfortable but elegant when you want it to be - like when the kids are in bed, with the lovely babysitters presiding, and I am at the bar with my friends and Pina Coladas. The food is consistently great, the beach is beyond words... More
