The resort staff are extremely friendly, accommodating and caring. The accommodation was very spacious, well appointed and well cleaned and maintained. Would definitely recommend this resort for a relaxing getaway. The hotel and gardens are beautifully appointed and blend well into its natural surroundings.

We chose this hotel because of the diving, which lived up to our expectations. However, we were concerned about being trapped in an all inclusive package with poor food. We needn't have worried as the food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive.

We stayed at Azanzi for 10 days in April. As it was low season it was very quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful. Nothing we asked for seemed to be a problem.
