We had a wonderful vacation at Palumboreef. The location is great, right on the beach (you have to check the tides, as they either push back the coastline quite a bit, or have the waves coming up to the retaining wall of the large patio/sundeck.

We visited this hotel with my mother 2 weeks ago and spent 12 fantastic days. It was our first visit of Zanzibar. The hotel was very beautiful and staff was very friendly. Our room was very spacious, furnitures were very easy but functional. We had a big, comfortable double bed with mosquito net. Bedlinen and towels were changed every day.... More

I had the opportunity to visit and stay recently at this hidden treasure. The food and hospitality were amazing. The owner is always present and you can see that hospitality runs on their veins. All the staff are well trained and rooms are very nicely presented. I recommend all to stay.

We 'accidentally' spent a night at Palumboreef, but definitely don't regret it. It is a beautiful accommodation, with nice rooms, a huge swimming pool and several bars. Despite the friendly staff there was not much ambiance at Palumboreef, since most guests act pretty reserved. Just make sure you go here with people you know and you'll be guaranteed of having...

Very nice hotel with friendly athmosphere - custom video from hotel and Zanzibar at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPpRtQLLzZ4&feature=share. Ideal for relax and quite vacation. But if you want you can go to the Waikiki for beach party.
