We enjoyed our time there. The hotel exceeded our expectations. The location is superb, the best beach in Zanzibar. The room is clean and comfortable, nothing special but you don't stay there much as the beach and pool area us the main attraction. The stuff is absolutely amazing, always with a smile.

Have your cake and eat it... this is what La Gemma is all about!!! We asked for sun, sea, white sandy beaches, to be served with good food and Diamonds La Gemma dished it out, liberally. Our 2-bedroomed suite was comfortable (beds are terrific by the way), spacious and offered every amenity that we needed. The bathrobes are dreamy. The...

I should start by saying that we did have a lovely time at the Diamonds hotel, but it wasn't the experience that I had hoped for. I was looking for luxury, but we didn't quite get that. the rooms are nice, kind of non descript. not sure why they are called Deluxe rooms. I believe they were all deluxe as...
