Perfect. That's the word that comes to mind after three days in the Serengeti. Simply perfect. We landed in Zanzibar and once we arrived at the Melia were so happy. The staff was incredible from start to finish. The hotel was magnificent. The beach was great. Just perfect. We were met by a happy, professional, helpful staff in every respect.... More

As soon you enter the resort, you feel welcome. The reception is friendly and warm. The management and staff makes you feel very special. The full board is to be recommended, as the food is of high quality and of many different dishes. Good table wine. The facility offers beside fine dinning, a buffet and casual eating at the beach...

I searched long and hard before making a decision on where to spend our precious 10 day vacation in Zanzibar, using a lot of the TripAdvisor feedback for the various hotels. Melia came out for me as the first choice, and it lived up to expectation for the 5 nights we spent there in all aspects. The room and in-room... More

It was the first time we were in an all inclusive resort, so we were concerned about being bored, but the friendly staff and the the hotel facilities offer a lot to do. The only thing i did't like is that we needed the doctor/nurse services, which were really expensive

Nicest staff in the world. Especially DUSU bellboy ! We stayed a week in April, a huge suite room, 4 bathrooms, excellent room service, very nice people, reception staff help with anything! Too bad that flights are cheaper I would go back to visit this year! Perfect hotel for a honeymoon!

One of the most beautiful hotel in Zanzibar, incredibly awesome. The ambiance from the main entrance through out the whole property, could just not find a proper word to describe. The hotel has quite many rooms of different categories, large in size with as many amenities just to make the guest feel pampered. The romantic pavilions near the sea would... More

Beautiful and lovely hotel, on the shores of the Indian Ocean. The staff was very friendly and nice and the food was excellent. Was a beautiful finish of our first African vacation and we are definitely looking forward to come back again.
