I only spent one night here after a Safari, it was booked through the Safari company and was a decent price for what it is. Nice simple, basic hotel. No luxury here, the rooms are basic, sometimes the hot water works. If you are looking for a decent, clean place in the perfect location, then this is it. If you... More

If you're planning a trip to Zanzibar and would like to live an amazing experience choose this accomodation. I spent 2 week in August 2016 here with my husband and this was an excellent solution. You can visit Nungwui village next to Amaan, know local people and try different small restaurants and bars. The Garden room was quite big and... More

Having researched this hotel, we were incredibly excited about our stay....however we couldn't have been further mislead. When we turned up they had lost our booking, and then when we asked to rebook it they told us it would be double the price. We then agreed to meet half way, but still payed more than anywhere else we had paid... More

We were very excited to arrive at Amaan Beach Bungalows after seeing promising pictures and reviews online. However, our experience couldn't have been more different. When we arrived they had lost our booking and then tried to charge us more than $30 dollars of the agreed price we had paid. The staff could not have been more rude and unfriendly... More

Clean rooms. Front desk did a good job with excursions. Great place to relax away the day. Excellent value. Breakfast was ok, but with room for greater variation. I have no problem recommending the place, but you should be aware that it is good relative to the price you are paying.

. Great place, very good and king staff and amazing location . But the breakfast gives a sense of disrespect. An island with such an abundance of vegetables without a little piece of tomato or cucumber, but only those . sausages and stews As well as exorbitant prices of bar and restaurant are disproportional More places nearby

Situated at the north western portion of the Island, this hotel retreat has a great beach located just next to it. Spent 2 days at this location. Idyllic for getaways from the bustling city life.

Stayed here recently for 2 nights on a whistle-stop tour of Zanzibar! I really liked this accommodation as it was clean, had good water power, good mosquito nets, had a great pool, fantastic beach location and amazing views of sunset over the Indian Ocean.
