We booked this beautiful little family run hotel online, I contacted Sarah to make a reservation and she was very helpful form the start to the end. When we arrived in Zanzibar after 24 hours travelling she had sent a taxi to pick us up at the airport and took us straight to the hotel. We arrived quite late so... More

I was originally travelling alone to Zanzibar for a chill out week after volunteer work in South Africa, so checked out trip advisor reviews for a hotel on the island. I came across the Waikiki and based mainly on previous reviews and price I decided to book a room. I contacted Sarah the owner by email regarding transfer to and... More

My boyfriend booked a room at Waikiki for a 4 day trip to Zanzibar. We picked this hotel because the beach looked nice and the rooms were much more reasonably priced than the larger resorts (even with off-season discounts in early December). The room decor was cool, as was the overall look and feel of the hotel. We didn't stay... More

Ok place to stay for 1 or 2 nights, but not for us anymore... I wouldnt recommend staying there on a Friday night, unless u want to stay up all night, since the weekly party is very loud and right outside of the rooms. The room is also pretty warm at night and we had a few huge cockroaches in... More

The location of this resort is Great, right on the beach. The atmosphere is very relaxed, you only need your shoes again when you leave. Our room was nicely decorated and very clean. The staff were always very helpful and friendly. They organised us a trip to go snorkelling which was well organised and the snorkelling was awesome. Can't believe... More

Nicely decorated and quality resort. Nice and quiet place except for friday nights when there's party night at Waikiki (which is either good or bad, your choice). The food is good, especially the pizzas and friday night's local food dinner was also delicious.

During our stay at the Waikiki Resort (from Dec 22, 2013 to Jan 04 , 2014) we were feeling like at home. The staff was really looking to meet our expectations. Food was excellent (the pizzas yummy); cocktails at the happy hour were also unforgettable. We had a Safari villa and our kids (young adults) were split in two Ethnic... More
