Not so luxurious, room has basic conditions, mosquito nets, bathroom, but the decoration is just plain. Good location to get to the sea and is inside the village. But a little difficult to get a decent dinner nearby since the restaurant inside the hotel seems to have no customs. We stayed in a triple room with $70, pretty fair for... More

The only positive things are the position (on the beach, but quite far from the things to see and on the opposite side of the island than the most beautiful places in Zanzibar) and the cordiality of the staff even if they're pretty slow (as everywhere in Zanzibar). Buffet for breakfast and dinner really poor. Awful condition of the rooms:... More

I stayed here with my two teens from the 25th of Dec to 1st of Jan. My kids enjoyed what was offered: pool, wifi, a/c, tv, mosquito nets. Haleed, the "manager" was very accommodating and even drove back to the airport to help us book new plane tickets when we missed the original flight. The staff were friendly and knew... More

Didn't stay here but came to eat one night where we were the only people eating and the meal wasn't great - maybe we were just too early at 7.00 as the staff were still eating their food in the dining room. Great soup and we were looking forward to the main but it didn't live up to expectations.

My sister and I stayed here for 4 nights out of our 6 nights in Jambiani and despite the uninspiring hotel name, we loved it! We got a great discounted price after a bit of bargaining and were given the choice of rooms. Our room was spotless, had 2 double beds, fridge, AC, fan, hot water shower and was cleaned... More

We stayed at Visitor's Inn for three nights. The staff were friendly and the food was lovely. The room was clean and the air con/fans were good. It's a little quiet but there are two bars within walking distance along the beach. We had a trip organised for us through the hotel which was excellent.

I really enjoyed my 5 nights here. The room was very spacious and we needed for nothing. The wifi connection was strong in reception and the food was good. The location of the Visitor's Inn though makes it stand out amongst the other hotels along the beach. You are in the centre so walking left or right will take you... More

Very beautiful hotel, nice welcome(reception), exceptional position. I crossed an excellent stay. Value for money interesting, the staff is warm and available. The beach is magnificent, a wonderful frame. If you look for a hotel in this region of Zanzibar, it is this the one that it is necessary to choose, both, not its situation, and its frame(executive) and its... More
