Stayed for a weekend. Was pricey but value for money. They built their resort around the nature. The trees grow out through the swimming pool deck and give you a surrounded by nature feeling. Its a very clean place. Try out all the 3 pools (which are open 24 hrs). Matemwe is really a trading center not a town but... More

Hello, I stayed with my girlfriend at the end of a wonderful trip through Tanzania on Zanzibar in order to relax and hang out a bit. So, to book a resort that was unknown to us is always a bit risky. But all our fears were unfounded. We arrived late and were immediately welcomed by the junior manager Mr. Lampe.... More

Spent 6 relaxing days here with my husband and son following a fantastic safari in the mainland. Enjoyed watching the locals from the restaurant, mending boats, fishermen passing through bringing their catched of the day to the fish market, and boys and girls playing in their colourful clothes, even cows being chased by children and the fresh air from the...

Me and my boyfriend spend 10 days in this hotel, and we enjoyed every single day of it. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and very beautiful. The food in the restaurants was also very good and the view was simply breathtaking. We took a diving course with Dive point and everything was very good organised en... More

Hotel is great, especially the spacey bungalows with splunge pool. Food was excellent and absoletly reasonably priced and is a reason to stay there. Beach is a bit of a disappointment, since it is not good for swimming (used by fisher and a lot of seaweed), but you can use one of the 3 pools and enjoy from there the... More

We enjoyed every minute of our stay here. Beautiful, spacious bungalows that meet all needs. Friendly and professional staff. The bungalows where perfectly cleaned every single day and the all-you-can-eat a-la-carte breakfast was fantastic, with fresh fruits, fresh juices, pastries, eggs, bacon, pancakes, cruesli, yoghurt, breakfast burgers... you name it.The beach is not great for swimming, but why would you...

We had planned to stay at Green & Blue Zanzibar from the 31st August 2015 until the 4th September but we cut our stay short because of the appalling customer service. It was like staying in a $300 per night hostel. • We paid $1200 instead of $600 to upgrade to an ocean front room. They put us in an... More

We spent 6 days at the Green and Blue and found that it was just not enough. The rooms are spacious and romantic with outdoor showers and a private plunge pool. The food is absolutely delectable, we found ourselves even running into the kitchen to meet the chef as we were so impressed with his cookings. This was one of... More

Last Sunday 07-06-2015, along with 24 friends visited the Green and Blue Ocean Lodges Zanzibar. What a place to visit. If you did not visit this place your aim to see Zanzibar is incomplete.
