#1 of 2 hotels in Zanzibar Island

Great location to relax from the business life, not recommended for people who search an exiting night life. The location is also perfect for various sorts of beach activities, but also an excellent base to explore the island. Amenties: 2 swimming pools, private beach, SPA and small Gym on site, most rooms with A/C and oceanview, free WiFi, Tour desk.

La Madrugada beach hotel is beautiful and staff is extremely friendly, caring and helpful. It is a great place if you want some quiet and peace. The manager Soloman is very helpful and efficient. It is the rainy season but the staff make your staff comfortable and pleasant.

This is a terrible hotel, crumbling and perhaps the worst service I received, by someone who proudly called himself the manager. As a start, you feel very early on that it’s all about the money and that the smiles are fake. I try and be responsible by not using plastic as much

Dear Anne-Laure Thank you for taking a moment to share your thoughts. We are sorry to hear that your time with us was anything short of perfect and sincerely apologise for any miscommunication or shortcomings you may have encountered. We strive to provide an great experience for each of our valued guests, and we sincerely apologise if you felt anything less. We do offer free water in the rooms, and we are happy to re-fill the bottles when used. We believe that this was truly a case of misunderstanding, as any other water at the hotel bar or reception is not for free. We tried to explain this to you, but unfortunately you completely misunderstood our intentions. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your holiday on our beautiful island. Kind regards La Madrugada Beach Resort & Team

Dear Raj Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures of our hotel exterior. We deeply apologize about the experience you had during your visit. At La Madrugada Beach Resort, the privacy of our guests is of primordial importance as we aim to offer a unique stay in a secluded and private environment. The maintenance issues listed however, we were not aware of during anytime of your stay, and even after your review we checked up on all points and could not find any mentioned. Nor did any other guests complain about these issues after your stay. We urge our guests to kindly let us know immeaditly when there is any issues so that we can change your room if possible or sort out the problem while you are staying at the hotel. We also do not advertise anywhere that we offer champagne and wine on arrival in your room. Should you wish to have this in your room, you are welcome to let us know before hand and we will most certainly arrange this for you. You definitely had the complete wrong impression regarding the AC remote, and we do apologize if you feel that way. The child rate is very cheap and we also list this information from the very beginning in your booking confirmation. We are truly saddened that your experience did not meet the level of service that we strive to offer and that we are known for. Further more your feedback is valuable to us and we have shared it with our team in order to improve our services even more in the future. We sincerely hope that you had a fantastic time in our beautiful island Zanzibar. Warm regards,
