The resort was relaxing. The room was dirty. There were cockroaches in the coffee/tea basket; at least it was dead. The bed was uncomfortable. The pool and beach were nice...food and drinks were expensive and so was the room for what you got.

My family and I had high hopes but were greatly disappointed. We had lots of problems ie bed falling apart, not enough power adaptors, lack of outdoor light, ceiling fan not always worked, dirty bedding, drinking water not refilled, lack of support contacting embassy after a travel alert was issued and BED BUGS!! There are aggressive sellers on the beach.... More

Upon arrival at this resort the staff were very attentive and accommodating. This hotel is a little oasis with its own private beach with the stunning views of the Indian Ocean................ We ate in the sea front restaurant and the food was good. The hotel is spotlessly clean and you can see staff take great pride maintaining this standard. I... More

Uroa Bay Beach resort is a perfect spot for anyone traveling to the east cost of Zanzibar known to be the most quiet, unlike Nungwi best known for parties and noise. Uroa Bay is a superb hotel owned by italians and best suitable for couples going for honeymoons, colleagues going for retreats or anyone in need of tranquility and relaxation... More

Food is nice, but after few days we got tired of eating the same things so we were going outside to have a bite. The beach is huge with white sand, but lot of locals are coming there selling things,... More

We just came back from our wedding at Uroa Bay Beach Resort and we could not have asked for a better stay or a better wedding. The staff were great setting everything up and organizing everything. Our wedding buffet was out of this world and the photos we got from the event were amazing due to the gorgeous beach! If... More

When we arrived we were told that there would be a 5.2% charge for using a credit card. We should have been told when we booked as we don't travel with $2,000.00 cash.( they didn't want local currency either but only euros or US dollars) Having said that the resort itself is quite nice with a large pool and located...

I visited Uroa Bay this February for my Honey moon. I have to say that experience was excellent! The resort is situated in a scenic bay with long white beaches that are great to explore. I have never in my life experienced such friendly and helpful staff and they just made our stay even more delightful. The food was great... More

We stayed at this resort during December 2013. We had the option of a 4 nights or 7 nights stay and we chose the 7night stay. Although the hotel was nice enough there is not much to do at the resort itself, and in hindsight the 4 night option would be better. The rooms were nice, but the beds are... More
