I enjoyed staying at Sarah and Flavio's little resort place. It is a little distant from any towns, however, it is easy enough to take a taxi to a town (although it can be a bit pricey).
Sarah and Flavio were great! Super nice folks and they do care about their guests and making sure that their guests have their needs provided for (to the best of their ability).
My friend and I did take a tour of one of the spice farms and also a tour of Stonetown. We did find that our tour guide's English was not the best...we got a general sense of things, but any more difficult questions we had went unanswered - which is ok, it's not the end of the world...just a warning to others.
The other thing to be aware of is that you can barter your taxi. I am horrible at bartering, but our friend was great and we got a better price to the airport $50 instead of the normal $60,
Overall, I would recommend the Waikiki Zanzibar Resort! I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Resort is located on one of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches of Zanzibar : Pwani Mchangani. The resort is surrounded by the lush of the spot, palm trees and bush, built just on the beach and so, except for the two single rooms which are on the back, wherever you are you can enjoy a wonderful sea view. A perfect place to chill-out. The resort is managed by international staff. ... more less
