we stayed in Melia, Zanzibar over the Easter holidays with my husband and our 5 months old baby and it was such bliss..lovely staff who payed attention to small details and made even our baby enjoy his holiday.. good food, beautifully set rooms with a view of the ocean.hotel is on a large piece of land so we could find a quiet place when we were looking for one even when the hotel was full. our room was clean, tidy and beautiful renovated bathroom. :). though there was no direct access to the beach, the hotel offered golf carts to transport guests to the private beach and back and hosted some parties on the beach at night which we found really nice. our overall family holiday was fun and we were sad to leave.
