Z Hotel was great for us our first experience in Zanzibar after travelling from Uganda. We arrived at the hotel very late in the evening due to flight delays, the driver who was there to meet us had informed the hotel of our delay so that when we arrived at the hotel after a 1 hour transfer a meal would be waiting. After checking in only to be told this was not the case and the kitchen was closed but could arrange a Pinnini also bar was closing, we were tired, hot and desperate for a meal and a cold beer. After showing our disappointment that we were not happy they managed to put together a salad and stir fry. The next morning when we pulled back the curtains of our penthouse suite the view was stunning ! Fab room even though there was a smell from stale water in shower but after using a few times this seemed to go. Clean towels everyday and the floor was washed everyday also the balcony was huge in fact we had two the smaller one had a shower and two sun beds which was nice to come up to later in the afternoon. We had the best meals at the hotel the service was very good and choices were also excellent. We had half board and were able to change dinner for lunch if we decided to go out somewhere different. The swimming pool is more like a huge plunge pool we preferred the warm sea ! Stunning beaches very easy to walk along due to them being very firm. We walked to the Turtle Sanctuary which is up by the Lighthouse worth a visit to support their good work they are trying to achieve the villagers are passionate about this project which is good for the community.
