My partner and I spent a week at the Reef & Beach Resort this past summer. We selected this hotel for its beach front location, quiet ambience, and accessibility to local attractions (including a day safari at Selous Game Reserve and the annual Mwaka Kogwa festival). Being on a budget, we initially considered staying in one of the cheaper rooms.... More

My boyfriend and I decided to save up and treat ourselves this year with a trip which would be something different… We chose Zanzibar because we heard it was an exotic experience with an abundance of nature, but that sure was an understatement! I must say that I was blown away from the first moment I arrived at the Reef... More

I visited the resort a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely loved it. The room where I stayed was big enough for me and my entire luggage which is one of the biggest concerns when I’m travelling, as a woman you DO want a room big enough for that kind of stuff. It’s hard to find a resort that... More

I just spent an amazing honeymoon with my wife at this amazing hotel. We were looking for a great place to stay alone and away from the bustle of the city. We wanted a new experience and chose to trip to Africa, since it's a continent which has a great tourist potential. Zanzibar has a lot to offer for those... More

If you are looking for a very quiet stay and low key entertainment,this could be it!The hotel is on the most south eastern part of the island and therefore quite a way from Stonetown.The rooms are adequate but the shower water has a salt taste to it.I could not work that out.The food is above average and a large variety...

In a phrase - it was like a beautiful dream come true. The ocean outside our window was just spectacular. We walked along the beach every day taking in the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. When I was a young girl, my family hosted an exchange student from Tanzania in our house for a few weeks. This really peaked my interest... More
