Booking was very helpfully handled by Mohammed, and on arrival at the port in Stonetown we were picked up with a very comfortable vehicle.

You had the chance to try both hotels! And from what you are writing..it was perfect! Samaki Lodge is a secluded hotel, for people they want a very quiet place, and with his 32 rooms can offers all the facilities for a perfect vacation. Even Palumbo Reef with his 100 rooms, all well located, provides for the best accommodation. Our... More

I'm just back from a wonderful vacation in Zanzibar. Every thing here in this Resort was superb. The beach clean and quite. There was a great sand bank in front us.

The hotel is located on the east coastline of Zanzibar, in the Uroa village (not necessairly next to a very good beach which in October was dirty of algae). There are two high tides and two low tides during 24 hrs so it is not always possible to swim in the ocean (if feasible, however, the water is obviously very... More

Dear Akka, we thank you for your feed back even if we don't agree totally with things you said. Is really rare that someone complain about the menu, that is changing every day. The food is Italian, really tasty and sometimes the hotel is even organizing Zanzibarian nights with all the "local cuisine "that guests can try. Anyway we hope... More
