“Excellent luxury accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Breezes is a beautiful beach resort in Zanzibar. The beach is literally on the doorstep (it comes into 2 of the bars) and the resort has a stunning pool and main restaurant. The rooms are spacious and cool and the food is excellent (in particular we loved the breakfasts). We also did the private dining in the Tides restaurant, which was great. We were on full board, which was great and additional drinks did not come too expensive. We did the snorkel safari, which I would greatly recommend.
One word of warning (and the loss of the 5th star) there are jellyfish in the sea, we got stung as did some other guests. The resort did treat us well, there's an onsite nurse, but if we'd've known then we'd have taken some precaution.
But it didn't spoil our holiday and I would really recommend as a luxury beach resort in Zanzibar.

Breezes exceeded our expectations. From the moment you arrive till you depart, the service is outstanding. They can not do enough for you. Grounds were immaculate, rooms was great. We booked a deluxe room but were put into a suite which was really nice and spacious. The room facilities were excellent. What we loved about this place after having spent 9 nights on safari with buffets was that they had a sit down a la carte menu every second night. This was nice. Yes drinks and food was a bit pricey compared to other places but I didn't mind paying based on this being what I consider a 5 star resort. The first night we arrived they had welcome drinks and the management and some staff came and welcomed you to the resort. A nice touch. The resort was busy when we were there but still you did not feel overcrowded. There were mainly couples and a few small groups. No kids which for us was nice and quiet. Overall I would highly recommend this resort. I can not think of any reason to not book this resort.

This has to be the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in. This was recommended to us & booked with Africa Rose Travel as a chill out after our safari in the Masai Mara. It really was luxury the whole way. Having arrived after a time the restaurant would have closed they had stayed open for us and nothing was ever any trouble. The spa was lovely and the pool and beach lovely. The restaurant was different themed every night and food really was wonderful. We were fortunate to have a room right on the beach ( thanks to Africa Rose !) which was wonderful. The grounds were beautifully kept and the staff very helpful, even arranging a taxi and booking a table for us at The Rock Restaurant. Would definitely recommend this hotel. If I could change one thing it would be to have an " all inclusive " option as the staff do try & push the drinks a wee bit, not sure if they are on a commission with this one? But truly a memorable stay at a wonderful hotel in a beautiful resort.

Breezes is a place to 'really unwind'-leaving was difficult! Plenty of Sunbeds by the sea, which was stunning. Food and drink were excellent-we did not need any lunch because there was so much food and we were only glad we were on Half-Board!
Anniversary Night,we had a meal at 'The Sultan's Table' with lots of exotic flavours and spices-very romantic evening!
The staff were all happy/helpful and wonderful people,room was large with lovely views from our terrace, where we enjoyed our 'Sundowner' drinks/canapés!
Astonishingly beautiful 'chilling place'-Breezes forever! No changes needed!! Perfect just as you are!!

We ended our trip to Kenya and Tanzania with a stay at Breezes.

The pros were a lovely setting, delicious dinners with entertainment, and a great pool.

The cons were a slightly mildewy smelling room, expensive extras (lunch is going to add up, big time and the variety is poor), and complete isolation from the people and culture of the island. Read: you will be surrounded by wealthy white people who appear way too dressed up at times for folks you assume are coming off safari.

Nice, but not my favorite. The highlight was a trip offsite to Zanzibar restaurant, the Rock. Delish.

Following a fantastic 4days on Safari in the awesome Serengeti, our Travel Consultant at Africa Rose Travel suggested we unwind further at The Breezes BeachClub, Zanzibar. We were right to follow the advice and couldnt have been happier here for a few days of nothing but beautiful views, friendly and helpful staff, good food and great facilities at an all round indulgent Hotel. The Hotel was very clean as was the pool and rooms. The entertainment provided nightly was really good fun and we felt very safe and secure at the Hotel. Africa Rose Travel organised everything for us, to the finest detail, to the extent that all we had to do, was relax - and that wasnt a problem at all !! Would recommend.

We are just back from a one week's stay at Breezes with our nearly 2 year old, and can't recommend it highly enough. We would echo everything others have said regarding the quality of meals (really good and a big effort made each night) and the friendliness of the staff and the beautiful location but really wanted to add how grateful we were to all the staff for being so lovely to our daughter. They couldn't have been more helpful with respect to food and other facilities that were needed even though (judging only by the number of other children there) this isn't a place really aimed at little kids. I've also read some reviews by parents saying there isn't much for children to do here but we'd totally disagree as we had a great time playing in the pool, playing on the beach, collecting shells, visiting the monkey forest, exploring stone town etc. All in all it's a stunning place with or without children but if anyone's thinking of visiting with children, we'd rate it as an excellent choice

Room Tip: We had the standard rooms which are absolutely lovely but a bit back from the rest of the resort. I...
