This hotel is a great place to unwind if you have just had a safari trip. The hotel grounds itself are stunning, the staff are always smiling and offer a top class service, the choice of foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner are great (you even have a snack bar by the beach) and the ambience is one of relaxation....

Me and my husband just returned from this hotel last week. We really enjoyed our stay and we plan on returning back soon. The beach is beautiful, the water is turquoise and the sand is white. All the employees are friendly and very helpful. There are always activities to do throughout the day whether on the beach during the day... More

Nothing at the hotel, pleasant as it was, stood out as exceptional to me. The room was pretty but I would have loved a more traditional Zanzibari feel. The food was average - hotel buffet, the same as you can find in any hotel anywhere in the world. The beach was probably the best feature for me.

What can I say.. this beautiful resort has outdone itself since our last visit around 18 months ago (which let me say was also amazing).. I didn't write a review then so let me fill you in now.. Yes, a long drive from the airport.. but this drive exposes you to real life in zanzibar before arriving in the Paradise... More

This presentation of this hotel has been extremely well thought out. The rooms are laid out in such a way they all have sea view and are in a three story layer with the roof of the lower one being grassed to make a veranda for the next level up. From the observation tower the grounds just look like very... More

Cannot give this hotel enough praise - friendly staff, amazing, rooms, food is to die for and the pool atmosphere top notch! Thank you for making our one night and day stay worth the screw around from the Royal Zanzibar. Would easily come back and stay here again

Thank you to Diamonds La Gemma dell'Est and especially the night/general manager, Timo. We were scheduled to stay at another resort in Zanzibar for 5 days and that resort cancelled our booking - we were moved to Diamonds for one night on 18th September 2016. Our other resort did not want to help us at 10pm on a Sunday night.... More

We were really looking forward to a few relaxing days in Zanzibar after our safari. The hotel was nice enough but I was definitely expecting more from the room for the price. The rooms were relatively small and dated. The buffet meals were average, we opted for the pizza place 2 of the 3 nights. The beach was beautiful but... More
