I had two amazing weeks at La Madrugada during their re-opening of the hotel. Surely there is no place like this; it’s as close to paradise you can get. I have been travelling a lot around the world, and not often do you find a place like this. From the moment I set my foot at the resort I knew that I had come to the right place. If you are looking for a busy luxurious high-end resort, then move on. But if you are looking for a quiet, friendly, relaxing beach resort with a soul this is the place to be! The white sandy beach is clean, beautiful and quiet without any pushy salesmen. The water is crystal clear, and with a boardwalk out to the coral reefs. The pool area is beautiful offering a peaceful day in the sun. And if you need a refreshment Edwin - the bartender will serve you what you want. The management are very nice, doing everything they can to make sure the guests are happy and enjoying their time at the resort. The chefs are preparing delicious meals; either from the menu or from his amazing buffets. The staff is very friendly and trustworthy. The hotel is placed in Makunduchi, on the south part of the island. If you want to see more of the island Mmbanja is the man to talk to. He arranges tours and activities all around Zanzibar. My favorite was the dolphin safari. We went swimming with wild dolphins, and if you are lucky you might be able to touch one of them. Amazing! I also really enjoyed the spice tour where we got to taste spices and fruit straight from Mother Nature! A trip into Stone Town was also very interesting, getting to see where the slave marked used to be, and wander through the smells and sight of the local markets. I highly recommend this beach resort. It’s a hidden treasure that I almost want to keep as a secret. I am looking forward to come back to La Madrugada.
