We were a group of 4 who stayed at the Uroa beach hotel for 3 nights on our recent visit to Zanzibar. We found the rooms pleasant , spacious and comfortable. The resort has an air of tranquility which we appreciated before moving onto thed busy Stonetown. Uroa beach resort has its own entertainment at night and we really enjoyed... More

Reading some of the negative reviews in regards to the performance of the staff, I feel somehow obliged to commend positively about their service and by doing so - to give them justice. Since we have arrived (my cousin and myself), we have no complaints whatsoever as far as the staff are concerned. To the contrary, we are very pleased... More

I have loved this 4 stars resort, not huge but that was exactly what I was looking for. The bungalow were so nice and clean, very big both bedroom as well as the bathroom, bigger than the average. The breakfast was ok, they have been helpful as I am allergic to gluten. The only negative point is that there is... More

Uroa Bay Beach Hotel is very good for it's price. It's not 5 star luxury however we didn't pay for or expect that. Cute bungalow style rooms lining the beach, a large swimming pool area and nice restaurant/bar to relax. There is plenty of space for kids to run around and for the adults, treat yourself to a massage. We... More

Great location, marvellous views and in general beautiful resort, but bare with me it is worth reading the whole post before making up your mind! Once arriving at the resort you will see that the set-up and general layout is beautiful, a first line beach resort with small ‘Local’ houses and nice facilities. The reception staff is okay but not... More

Uroa Bay Beach is a very quiet and serene place, exactly what we expected, but the hotel has some points that could be improved. All common areas are ok, there is even high speed internet at the reception area. However, the service level is not quite to the standard that I expected. The waitresses are too pushy, cleaning up when... More

The rooms were nice and clean but the staff was not very helpful. Our coffee and shampoo wasnt replaced, and when we asked for it at the reception they said they would send it soon but they didn't. The food was good but toooooo many flies were sitting on it, during lunch you can't eat properly as you are just... More

Considering how relatively cheap this 4 star hotel is, i think the value for money is really outstanding compared to every other hotel in Zanzibar. The beach/city is obviously very boring, but that doesn't change the luxury of the hotel. If you just want to lay by the pool and relax this hotel really is perfect. Also there are plenty... More

We were a family with a mixture of Australian's, Swiss and Americans staying here to relax after a wonderful Kilimanjaro climb and Safari. Be warned! If you are not French, do not come here. We were always pushed last in line. The lady at the front desk was also incredibly rude and rolled her eyes at us. We booked almost... More
