Food is good and beautiful swimming pools. Unfortunately not next to a beautiful beach. I prefer a better beach.

There have been mixed reviews about the beach boys in Zanzibar but if you are at Uroa Bay Beach, I highly recommend Ali & his partner Coca Cola. Not only were the tours they arranged for us, substantially cheaper, but they were extremely well organised,...More

A well-kept and pleasant hotel located by a beautiful beach. A great place for carefree relaxation. Staff very nice and willing to help some try to speak Polish. Super cottage with an ocean view, which was cleaned every day.

A beautiful place on the east side of Zanzibar. White and marvellous beach. The place is quite and laidback. For booking excursions/trips I will strongly recommend a local guy in Uroa called Mohamed Aliy (WhatsApp:+255 773432924). He is reliable and offers high quality.

I wouldn't recommend to drive by yourself on the island, as local roads are pretty busy with motorbikes, buses and so on. As the island does not have walkways, people walk on the streets. Either you book a bus/taxi from the... More

Hi liu, there is a reef that extends for at least one hundered meters so it is a bit tough to do some real swimming. Uroa beach is really isolated, though beautiful , so it is far from restaurants and other amenities. Go if... More
