Very good breakfast. Nice view from the room, but the beach... far away from paradise. They cooked only 4 meal for lunch and dinner, every day the same. Grilled chicken, chicken sandwich, grilled fish and 🥳🥳 fish sandwich... the room was clean, but just at first sight. In the mosquito net were a big holes, in the bathroom many spiders...and gekons behind hangers. When we went out from the room (at night), because of the small hotel party 5m away from our room, we met a biggest rat😓. At last.... we had a huge hole in our room, they doest change it, because they miss our room👍🏻

Ocean Group of Hotels in Zanzibar operates five hotels all located at the beach. During my stay in Zanzibar, I stated at Zanzibar Ocean View Hotel which besides being near Zanzibar's tourist attractions like stone Town, old slave market and Sultan's palace is near markets and the airport. The rooms are spacious with ac and hot water. The staff are friendly and welcoming. My room was on the first row facing the ocean and at night you can hear the waves lapping the shoreline. From the hotel our friendly guide and cab driver, Ali Kombo would pick us and drives us all the way to Nungwi and Jozani forest. Jozani forest has the red Columbus monkey, these endengered species are only found in Zanzibar. You will also see the mangrove forest.

Do not stay here Very run down seemed to be the only people there. VERY depressing hotel. Out of there rooms in two showers were not working!!! On top of it the staff was very very unfriendly when we complained. I can not recommend it at all.

Stayed for one night as part of tour group. Went for lunch and was only table in restaurant. Waitress was rude and unhelpful (rolling her eyes when asking questions about the menu). Food arrived and two meals had shards of glass in vegetable samosas (after we had eaten). We did not feel welcome at Ocean View!
