The way the rooms and hotel is laid out is just amazing, the sea view, the different set ups for sun bathing and relaxing, it's bit expensive but worth it, the rooms were not very clean and sheets were not replaced properly, food was nice and a good variety - the service is bit slow though. Would stay there again... More

I was looking for a relaxing but great atmophere (music, people ...) place to spend the rest of my stay after a Safari in Tanzania. Once I steped in, Coral Rock appeared as a little peace of heaven, some kind of a hidden treasure, completely disconnected from some bad reviews that I got about Zanzibar resorts/ mass tourism.

Forgive the cliché, but Coral Rock is a hotel with something for everyone. Of all the places I stayed on Zanzibar while living in Dar, Coral was my favorite, and somewhere I stayed several times. It’s perfect for visitors looking for a uniquely Zanzibarian experience (much better than the island's touristy resorts) with stunning beach and vistas; couples keen on... More

I liked the combination of nice beach, nice food, party and relax. And all of this for not much money. Staff was helping and collaborative when i needed urgent transport to stone town. They also held parties with DJs on weekends.

I really enjoyed my stay and spent lovely days at Coral Rock! The hotel has a wonderful location. It is a great place to relax at the beach, to get away and have nice drinks at the bar or in the pool!

I just spent a week at Coral Rock, it was my first time in Zanzibar. My time was something Ill never forget, it's as close to paradise as exists. A magical place, Neil & Jill are fantastic hosts, and the rest of the staff were like family after a couple of days. The food was delicious, the overall vibe was... More

I've always enjoyed my stay at Coral Rock - truely and genuinely it ticks all the right boxes: the food is great (bunny-chow is a must!!); the location and rooms are cleverly designed, simple and beautiful whilst providing optimal privacy (plus every room I've stayed in has gorgeous ocean vistas); the owners are incredibly lovely, always going above and beyond...

From the second you step inside Coral Rock, you feel instantly welcomed, loved and cared for. The owners, Neil and Gill, are such a great bunch of people and we shared some amazing stories over a few beers together. The rooms are out of this world and always kept clean, comfortable and inviting. During the day, it is one of... More
