This resort is on an interesting beach, where low tide takes the turquoise ocean very far away and creates a huge stretch of beach with its own wildlife, while high tide comes up almost to the Zanzibari day-beds and umbrellas. The hotel is a collection of little bungalows dotted in beach sand, surrounding a central open restaurant and bar area.... More

We had a truly wonderful time at Waikiki. Our room was beautiful and comfortable, right on the beach, and cleaned every morning. The only problem was a lack of hot showers for the first couple of days, which was very disappointing, but the staff worked hard to resolve the issue. The beach on which the hotel is situated is beautiful,... More

Very beautiful place, very inviting staff, the rooms are comfortable and clean and they had hot water. After a long visit in Africa, it was a surprise to find such good food (Italian)- try the pizza! The staff was very generous- they let us do a late check-out at no extra cost. I recommend to you to stay in this... More

Arriving at Waikiki Zanzibar Resort was like stepping into a screensaver. The staff was absolutely phenomenal on top of the beautiful scenery. Flavio the GM, takes every bit of feedback into account and wants this resort to be the best possible location for holiday-goers. Extremely organized, clean, and hardworking staff also attributed to this magnificent stay. The food was delicious... More

I had a lovely stay in this secluded oasis of Pwani Mchangani. The facilities were comfortable, quiet and located on a beautiful beach. The service was excellent and could be compared to typical American/European hospitality. I took a few excursions arranged by an on site service and had a wonderful time. Management was very kind and promptly attended my requests.... More

On our first visit to Zanzibar, Waikiki was recommended to us by some friends. When we reached the resort, I was immediately a little disappointed by the service, including the guy who checked us in. No he wasn't rude, but just not welcoming and helpful. I say this when I compare service I have received at other high end hotels... More

So many places to seat and relax anf each a bot different and all really cool, The place is practically on the beach so the lack of pool is not felt for a sec. Service... More

Me and my boyfriend spent two weeks in this hotel. The owners and all staff are very friendly and helpful in case of any problems, not even related to the hotel. We didn't even feel like in hotel, but like in friends' holiday house. The whole resort reminded me Hawaii. There is sand everywhere around. You go out of your... More

Highly recommend! Reasonably priced, excellent customer service, owners are very flexible with check-in/out times, and attentive to details. Only 16 rooms total so a very nice, private, and relaxing place to stay. They even made us early breakfast when we had to leave early in the morning for excursions. Sarah and Flavio do an outstanding job and we will definitely... More

The owners/managers were unbelievably detailed. From check in to check out we never had an issue. At any given time someone can have a problem in the room etc. but they would nip it in the bud. Every morning at breakfast you were asked to give a short answer for five simple questions in reference to your stay. This would... More
