“For those who want to learn the art of doing nothing! Breezes Rocks!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

I was at the Breezes in Zanzibar and almost managed to master the art of doing nothing. The villas are spacious, well appointed and very comfortable. The food is delicious. The location perfect, right on the Bwejuu beach.
The staff extra-ordinary, very friendly, informative and caring. Its an excellent place to end a Safari in Tanzania. You will unwind and rejuvenate and be all charged to get back to your normal life until you can manage to take another vacation!

Room Tip: A must after a Safari in Tanzania! A meal in the "Tides" is a great experience...

We've spend 4 days/3 nights in this lovely resort in Bwejuu. It's a beautiful hotel with excellent facilities. The service is very good, the food is lovely. Our children loved the pool. We were very happy with the babysitting service that is available for a very good price and used it 2 nights. We have seen a few different hotels in Zanzibar, and this one is by far the most luxurious one we have stayed in. Electricity and supply of warm water no problem. Well functioning air-conditioning, beautifully decorated rooms, lounges and bars... Perfect. Maybe a little bit too perfect for our taste, but I have learned that most European and American travelers expect this kind of service and facilities when they travel to Tanzania. So I can absolutely recommend this place, for couples, honeymooners and families like us.

Room Tip: We got an upgrade for a room with sea view, but I believe all rooms are beautiful.

Three generation family trip and we all completely relaxed and loved it, even Granny who just does not do this sort of place. She prefers to rough it but she relaxed so much that she could not be bothered to even read her book. Stunning situation. Beautiful decor.. Great rooms. Very clean. Delicious food of great variety. Cannot wait to return.

Wonderful place right on the beach with a PADI Dive facility right there for you fellow scuba buffs. Accomodations great (albeit we had a problem with our toilet which was fixed promptly) good food, friendly staff good food. Tours to Stoene Town etc can be arranged directly with Hotle pickup and drop-off

Room Tip: All seem nice but obviously if you go all the way there from states you might as well go for the ext...

We stayed here for one week following a 2 week safari. It was a most beautiful place. The rooms were very tastefully decorated, in fact I thought it was one of the nicest rooms I have ever been in. The bed was enormous and very comfortable. The gardens were beautiful and sitting on our terrace overlooking the sea was very relaxing. The food and service were excellent. We had a massage and I had a pedicure at the spa and it was a lovely place with excellent staff. There were always enough sunbeds by the beach and swimming pool. All in all it was a lovely place to stay.

We spent eight nights at Breezes in a Standard room at half board after a two-night stay in Stonetown. The resort is very nice, so we are not giving it a bad review, but overall it was not the best match for us
.
We liked the room – there is a very comfortable king bed, couch, coffee table, chair, and side table with beautiful fresh flowers. The room also has a mini bar, coffee/tea pot, and safe, and there is ample space for luggage and clothes. The staff brings a large bottle of water each day. The bathroom is small, but functional. There is a cute little covered patio outside with chairs and a rack to hang wet clothes. We stayed in #70 at the very end and there was a nice, secluded garden view. The Standard rooms are very far from the main areas and beach, so be ready for a walk. There is no TV or internet in the rooms. There is a TV room (not air con) and computer room (air con) near the lobby and wi-fi in the public areas, but it costs $10 per day for wi-fi (half price after 4:00 PM).

The breakfast buffet was huge with a wide range of options. There was tons of fresh fruit and the waffles were yummy. Dinner alternated each night between sit down with set menu and buffet. The food was ok; some things were really good and some were average. Most nights there was live entertainment. The staff goes to a lot of effort to create different themes and table décor. If you like formal dinners with a lot of bells and whistles, you will enjoy the atmosphere. (For us, the ideal dinner is casual snacks in our shorts and bare feet at the beach bar.) One night there was a cocktail party (for Good Friday) with live music and complimentary appetizers and bellinis – it was very nice. Another night, the hotel treated us to in-room sundowners (wine and hors d’oeuvres), which was a pleasant surprise.

The gym is small and has cardio equipment, weight machines, and free weights that are a bit outdated. There are towels and a water cooler. We didn’t try the tennis court, yoga, or spa. The pool was refreshing, but did not have a view of the beach and was usually crowded. My husband did some scuba dives at the PADI center and had a really good time. There is a very nice large, air con shop that sells a wide range of items.

The beach is one of the main reasons we came to Zanzibar and it was a disappointment. The sand is pure white and the water is warm. But the beach is very narrow and has a lot of seaweed to step around as you walk. When the tide is high, there is no beach at all. But at low tide, there is more beach area, and you can rent shoes and walk out on the reef (beach boys will approach and try to sell things.) The hotel does have a nice area on the sandy bluff overlooking the beach with lounge chairs and umbrellas.

Breezes is a nice resort and there were some things that we liked, but overall, it was not the best choice for us. Things we liked: the room (especially the bed), staff (everyone is very friendly and helpful), PADI dive center, and surprise extras like the cocktail party and in-room sundowners. Things we didn’t like: crowded pool, no TV and internet in the room, extra charge for wi-fi in public areas, dinner dress code for men that requires pants (the restaurant is outside and there are no ceiling fans - it is very hot), and the beach.
