I stayed for a week in one of the Superior Garden Rooms. I was delighted with the room, staff, food and entertainment offered. I arrived at 2am and the check in process was easy. I did email the hotel beforehand to say that I would be checking in late. This was not a problem and they offered an airport shuttle...

This hotel is absolutely lovely. The rooms that are thatched round houses are very spacious and kept immaculately clean. The staff in all areas are so polite and helpful and always very cheerful. Food was fantastic as was the service. We couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough.

The hotel is on the north east coast but only takes just over an hour from the airport - let's just skate over the arrivals hall apart from to say 'basic' ! Ocean Paradise is approached via an avenue of colourful trees and plants which sets the tone. Security is efficient but generally unobtrusive once through the large locked gates....

We had an amazing time in the Serengeti, and I wasn't sure how the next leg of our trip would be able to live up to first half. But suffice to say, we were not disappointed! I will start out by saying we had a couple of small snafus, but also that the OP staff were quick to correct things....

Food, the beach and our room were excellent. Every evening mosquito repellant sprayed in our room but the net had some holes on it. Friendly staff. But pool bar staff counted our drink price twice. So pls beware of the amount of the receipt you sign. Even so, I sincerely recommend this beautiful hotel.

The whole experience was excellent. The best feature is the friendly, helpful, efficient, happy and always smiling staff.The food was good, the room was good, very clean, no insects to bit us, the pool was good, the entertainment was good.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean, it is as the name suggests a little piece of paradise. From your arrival at Zanzibar Airport, the resort is a meandering 45 minute journey through un-spoilt scenery, passing typical African villages where the way of life has changed little for hundreds of years. At Ocean Paradise Resort Zanzibar, you will be greeted by a blaze of colour as you sweep down the imposing driveway, saluted by a Masai warrior as you pass through the entrance gate and be captivated as you arrive in reception and look out over the resort and the azure blue sea. Mature coconut palms swinging in the breeze, white sandy beach, beautiful landscaped gardens, traditional style round chalets with pitched makuti roof, a stunning waterfall feature and the largest swimming pool in Zanzibar are just some of the sights that await you. A big smile and the greeting of "Jambo" will be the first words you hear, as you begin to feel the warmth that the people of Zanzibar are famed for. ... more   less
