just arrived back from Zanzibar, and spent out last week here, hoping to save the best for last, unfortunately its was the worst of the lot and nothing like their website. We were double booked as were a few other people, our first night we slept 4 in a double room on mattresses on the floor, luckily for us we... More

When I booked this accommodation I was asked for 50% upfront and to complete payment two months prior to travel, stipulating no refunds if I cancelled. From the pictures on the website it looked great but I failed to spot how few reviews there were. Now I know why! Our room was poorly appointed with a small, ineffective ceiling fan,... More

A lovely clean bungalow room with lots of space and all with private bathrooms. Cool bar right on the beach with a few sun loungers. Great food included fish that we saw come off the boat the same day. The only thing I would say is food and drink are a little pricey for the backpacker atmosphere.

This place was a real treat. First of all are the superb staff helped, entertained and spoiled us everyday (they even put on a special candle lit beach meal for us on our final night because it was our honeymoon). The food was fantastic - we ate out on the second night but after that ate at Crazy's every nigh... More

Stayed at Saffron Villa right next to Crazy Mzungo's for 8 days with family and it was superb! The staff (Uzzi the manager, Emar the barman, Abeddi our chef) were brilliant and we had a superb time. The food was fresh and yummy from the bar and great to have a couple of drinks with travellers coming through as well... More

From the reviews i had read I was expecting a fun and crazy atmosphere but it was quite the opposite. Everything on trip advisor had mentioned the bar and the crazy barmam. The only liquor the bar had was Gin and the only thing drink was water or sprite. The bar area has things about Jack Daniels everywhere and as... More

I traveled to Zanzibar the day after Christmas and had booked a stay until January 2nd. This was my second time in Africa, (the first in Zanzibar, I was in Uganda earlier that year). Let me preface with saying this - I have never met a group of more hospitable and accomodating people. By the end of the trip, I... More

When we arrived at Crazy Mzungo's the one toilet in our bungalow was broken and there were only two stand-up fans (one of which broke on the first day) and one small roof fan for 8 people (no aircon). The owner apologised for the broken toilet, but said they would get a plumber to fix it and get some more... More

This was the most relaxing and chilled out place I have ever stayed. Four girls travelling together and we never felt more safe. The staff were extremely friendly and VERY helpful, especially Gerard. We had issues with getting our luggage to the island and he tracked it down for us. The highlight of this place however is the food. It... More
