Where do I start, everything about this hotel is amazing.

Unless you've been fortunate before, this all inclusive concept is markedly better than any other equivalent I.e.The food in the... More

Me and wife had our honeymoon in Melia Zanzibar. This was the best holiday ever. The staf was very friendly and the food was very good. The bathroom was big and we had 2 showers and a bad (1 open shower). At the Gabi beach the have the best steak! Best place for honeymooners!!
