Our 5 days at the Serena Zanzibar couldn't have been better. The staff was courteous, helpful, friendly and kind. The hotel itself is elegant and understated, filled with antiques and the feeling of old Zanzibar, and every detail and amenity is is thoughtful and immaculately maintained. The setting on the Indian Ocean makes for wonderful sunsets and much needed ocean breezes. The pool area is lovely; one can either lounge facing the pool or the ocean. They have a coffee bar where you can find great espresso drinks (hard to find in most of Tanzania), and excellent bars and restaurants. The included breakfast has an impressive array of Western, European, and African specialities. Delicious baked goods and fresh fruit as well. One evening we had a very romantic dinner at the rooftop restaurant. This is open-air and overlooks the ocean. The seafood was fantastic and the service impeccable. The concierge and doorman helped to arrange tours and transport and our transfer to and from the airport was easy and comfortable. Should we ever return to Africa, we would be sure to stay here again.
