#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.

During our stay here we were first met by really helpful and accommodating staff. The people who work here are very welcoming and friendly, which we really liked. The room we had, needed a bit of attention. The toilet was missing a handle, there was sand on our floor as well

Dear Charlie, First and foremost, thank you very much for sharing your constructive feedback on your recent stay at La Madrugada Beach Resort. We regret that we were not able to provide you a fully wonderful experience owing to these issues and rest assured that we will take these into consideration for the continuous improvement of our facilities and amenities. On the other hand we would also like to express our side of the story. Our normal check in time is 12pm, but you have arrived 2 am in the morning, which you did not inform the hotel of. For this reason, you could not check into the correct room you booked. You have also refused to pay any extra fees, or breakfast. We change our towels every 3rd day, and upon your request we changed your towels and linen daily. The more people book tours, and go together, the cheaper it gets per person We strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer, therefore your feedback is very important to us. We very much appreciate the time you spent with us and we thank you for the rest of the compliments. Yours Sincerely,
