The rooms were really big and comfortable. Location was really nice. Sea was beautiful. Food was great, but the all inclusive alcohol had only the cheapest local alcohol available. We only stayed for 2 night but it was better than our other hotels.

We stayed here for three days after a kenyan Safari, wish we had booked to stay longer. Room was huge, clean and great location overlooking pool. Cannot fault the food always plenty of options to choose (we dont eat meat). My daughter arranged for a birthday meal on the beach this was amazing, Lobster was so delicious as was all the food. Waiter Simba & chef were so friendly and worked hard as were all the hotel staff they all work so hard to make a enjoyable stay. Beach & sea is beautiful always sunbeds available. We met Masai Mara community when in Kenya and was nice to see the guys at the hotel for security, they are very interesting to speak with about their culture/way of life and do a great job around the hotel. Would love to return again one day for longer!

We have just returned from a great holiday at the Royal Zanzibar Hôtel. The hotel grounds are beautiful and well maintained, the food was varied and nice-we especially loved the cliff restaurant for lunch and the outdoor buffet on the beach was amazing. All the staff were so friendly amd helpful and we were greeted by big smiles and ‘Jambo’s’ from everyone. Our family room was very spacious with a big bathroom and we enjoyed the different bars, the swimming pools and joined in some of the activities which were well organised and fun.
