We stayed at Tanzanite for 4 nights in January 2011; the hotel is very nicely situated with a pretty garden down to the water and pleasant bungalow accommodation. The power supply is a bit erratic and the water pressure pretty poor so don't expect a cool room or great shower but you make allowances when visiting far flung places! Our two points of major concern are the following: firstly the lagoon is very unsuitable for bathing as it is full of sea urchins - I would not recommend visiting without neoprene boots or sturdy reef shoes. To reach the reef when the tide is out is a long walk! Secondly, the food here is pretty awful. There are few options available other than the hotel restaurant at night and the menu very quickly becomes tiresome - after only two nights we were dreading a visit to the restaurant. The service is very slow and the choice pretty limited. I must say though that the staff during our stay were on the whole lovely, and especially caring, as my other half had gone down with a nasty case of food poisoning in Stone Town prior to our stay and they provided a very soothing sweet spicy tea which made her feel much better. Think carefully before booking here.
