in one word, amazing. the view, the private beach the focus in every detail the amazing room and also the food. please be aware that sometimes the bar and other food service is a bit slow but to my point of view this is not a big issue - after all we came to Zanzibar to relax ;-)

My first time in Zanzibar was in May this year on a couples' retreat where we stayed at Neptune Pwani Beach Hotel which was average. However, our overall Zanzibar experience was amazing and I was sure i would go back again before the end of the year. When i told my girlfriends (a different set of friends) about it, we... More

What a hotel! It's fantastic with all it's facitlites and it's slick service. Staff are very friendly and cater to all your needs. Bathrooms are huge with 2 showers (1 outside and 1 inside) and a bath. Minor downside was the frosted glass toilet (trust me you can see everything through it). The food was excellent! Huge choice and very... More

My wife and I had a fantastic experience and stay at the Melia from arrival to departure. The staff and facilities are of the best that we have experienced. We have island holidays twice a year for a number of years and stay in different hotels each time, so yes I think the comment says a lot. Cannot fault anything,... More

What make this hotel are the staff and the location. Every single member of the team greet you with a smile and ask if they can help you. The managers are always walking around, asking guests how they are and if they need anything. My luggage was unfortunately left in Nairobi and the hotel were great in calling the airline... More

This year we even had a special dinner on the Gabi beach which was stunningly prepared and organised. That variety of... More

We stayed here over a year ago when my now husband proposed to me in Zanzibar. It was such a great experience, as it was our first time in Zanzibar. The beautiful ocean is unmatched and the accommodations were gorgeous. We had the all-inclusive option and the food and drinks were good. We made sure to have some meals outside... More
