My husband and I stayed at the Zanzibar Hotel in March 2013. This is a new hotel which is beautiful and has a lot of really nice extras. Beautiful Seaview rooms with a swinging canopy, slippers and robes, pool, ac, breakfast and dinner included. Georgia (the owners daughter) is so accommodating and nice. The food was very good. The dinner is a 4 course meal which is delicious but a lot of food. If you aren't a big eater you may want to let Georgia know and she can bring you 2 courses instead of 4, whichever you like. She is very easy going. While you are there I would recommend going to Mnemba Island for snorkeling or diving, it's gorgeous and a quick 20 minute drive from the hotel. Ask Georgia and she can arrange it for you. Also get a massage there, it's on the beach and the Pili does a great job and its a good price. ( she is very strong if you want a deep tissue massage) We would definitely stay again!
