We stayed a few days in a room facing the beach. It's a long way from the airport - $40 40 minute cab ride - and far from any kind of cultural attraction including scuba which is at the northern tip a solid 40 minutes away. We rented a vespa and that was really nice because the roads are great... More

Stayed here with my family in august and the experience was not that great. Room cleaning in the morning left the dead flies where they were and we were entertained by cockroaches in both rooms provided (I strongly recommend you check under the pillows ... we found one waiting for us there). As per the restaurant: (1) if you like... More

Uroa bay beach resort is situated close to a beautiful beach, with great facilities like a tennis court and swimming pool. It might be wonderful for couples on honeymoon, but for young, single people looking to have a great time and explore zanzibars nightlife, it´s a nightmare. I would recommend it for couples though, perhaps on a short stay so... More

We loved staying in this resort, the accommodation was great and the employees are really friendly. Our main complain is about the "all inclusive". We payed 60 dollars per person per day, but later we found out that most of the cocktails are not included, also the menu la carte is not expensive. As we were enjoying so much our... More

To start, I would agree with the earlier reviews that the beach at Uroa is lovely and is the single best selling point of the hotel. For the price we paid, I would also agree that compared with other options around Zanzibar, you get pretty good value for money on the accommodations. Also, the staff were genuinely friendly and accommodating. ... More

Nice isolated(in a good way) hotel. Had taken an all inclusive 2 day plan. Wonderful stay. They also organize some shows after dinner occasionally. We were lucky to get the masai & acrobatic show. Complete value for money.

We had a lovely holiday two weeks in July 2014 at Uroa Beach resort on Zanzibar. Friendly personal, perfect accommodation, quit environment, no mass tourism and beautifull weather in this period of the year. The last minute safari in Selous game reserve, Tanzania and the snorkel and dive trip at Pnemba was very well organised by the local operator Prime... More

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
