The hotel is very beautiful and clean. It's for adults only so there is a very relaxed atmosphere and it's quiet. The food was delicious with plenty to choose from. They also celebrated our birthday with complimentary champagne and a birthday cake. The room and the shower were very spacious, pretty, and comfortable, but the shower had drainage issues that could not be fixed. The room was a little bit far from the pool and the beach. The staff is very nice, everybody always smile and say hello. We especially remember Nasra from reception who was very nice and Amyna who decorated our room for our honeymoon (which was amazing). Also Jasmine, Asynta, and Erick the waiters who were very very nice, but most of all the animation team (Rashid, Boniphace, and Jackson Five) who made our stay there a lot of fun and are amazing. We definitely recommend anyone to stsy at RIU Palace.…
This hotel is better in reality than in the management pictures! The wonderful manicured garden, the gorgeous ocean views with stunning sunsets, the spotless rooms and the great hospitality make this place a perfect getaway for a memorable holiday. Food is very good and the buffet has many options, for all kind of tastes. The à la carte restaurants are nice and it was easy to make reservations. I have just a little remark about the Steak restaurant. It is better to reserve on the terrace, not inside the restaurant. The swimming pools have great views over the ocean. The beach is wonderful and everybody can have a sunbed, the beachboys are very careful. The tide is not so high on this part of the island, so you can lie in the sun all day. The only bad thing is that the wifi is not so good on the beach. The rooms are great . We had an oceanfront superior suite, with a generous terrace and a splendid view . It was a great choice and I recommend this type of suite, it is very comfortable and close to all the facilities: spa, swimming pool, beach , restaurants, bar. Near the hotel there is a big construction , but there wasn' t any noise to bother us. I appreciate the management care for the feedback. They give feed back forms to be completed and they even come to disscus with the clients about what improvements can be done. The personnel is well trained and helpful. Our holiday at Riu Palace Zanzibar was one the best vacation we had. …
The location is out of this world; it is right on the beach and whether you are sat at the restaurant, main bar or the pool you have a view of the ocean. The staff are so friendly, helpful and welcoming. The good variety of food and drink is available and the bar staff will make any cocktail, however Pepe’s snack bar is disappointing. On arrival the hotel has no facilities to store luggage, so it is left in the reception area until taken to your room, which we have never experienced previous nor find acceptable.
We have stayed in RIU hotel and it was an-amazing experience. Staffs are very kind and the management is good. Bar is very well organised and we would like to mention the Manager Ajith and his team especially Rukia, Erasto, Zablon, Sara doing amazing job .

My sister and I stayed for a week at Riu Palace Zanzibar and we had an amazing and unforgettable experience. The resort is beautiful and everything is all inclusive. The pools, beach and food are worthy of a five star rating. The staff are kind, friendly and extremely helpful. A special mention to Jackson 5 whose enthusiasm at the pool area made aquafit and yoga most fun and was very helpful. Simba from entertainment was most friendly and was always available to chat and answer all our questions. I loved our time spent here and would recommend to anyone wanting to visit Zanzibar. The hotel is in the Nungwi area and is also very close to the Zanzibar horse club and the Baraka natural aquarium which is definitely worth visiting if you stay here.
All stuff are very, very friendly, especially Oscar and Glorry in the main restaurant and Remmy and Moureen in the bar. I would like to repeat, that they are all really friendly. The food was excelelnt…. TOP hotel - I recommennd to all. Clean restaurant….. The most beautufyl beach I ever seen. locarPeopel (sellers) are not wery desturbing on the beach.
The hotel is super clean, Entertainment Team doing great job, Simba, Bonifarce, Rashid, Nana and Jackson 5 this team make People connected. Always we have a nice evining show together with amazing dancing from Animátors. I can recommend to every one to come.
This was a fantastic resort! Special thank you to Jackson 5 for awesome aqua aerobics and yoga classes. Also thank you to Simba for the best entertainment! What an amazing holiday. I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to zanzibar!
We like long time ago the Riu Hotel chain. We were Riu in Mexico, Sri Lanka (two times 😊) and now Zanzibar . The outstanding service was the cleaning people and the restaurant staff. For example we like so much: Win Fida NM ❤️
