Hotel's Favorite
Melia Zanzibar you have surpassed our every expectation! We stayed in a one bedroom villa with a private pool with our kids. We were on an all inclusive package which was so amazing. The villa is huge and so comfortable for kids. The pool outside area is big and spacious and we loved spending time there. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, our every need was taken care of. The whole resort is beyond beautiful. The food was absolutely fantastic, the breakfast at jetty was so so good, the beach was postcard perfect , the massage I had at the spa was the best that I have ever had in any other 5 star resort , but the one thing that stood out the most for us was the service. We had our own private butlers and they went above and beyond for us. To Kombo and Khamissi, thank you for making our stay so great, you guys are the absolute best! You are the warmest, friendliest most helpful people we have ever met and we will forever remember both of you. To Ali, thank you for always checking up on us and making sure we had everything we needed, you are one of a kind and the hotel is lucky to have someone like you. There is not one thing that I can fault about this resort. We have made memories here that we will forever cherish, and if we have to return to Zanzibar some day we will definitely be back to melia! Thank you Melia Zanzibar! Asante sana!

Meliá Zanzíbar is wonderfully relaxing. The rooms are huge and quiet. The stocked included mini bar with local nuts is a real treat. The breakfast and delicious nene buffets are excellent. The staff friendly. The 2 sit down lunch options are wonderfully delicious specialty the pizza and cesar salad. We enjoyed the local entertainment but wish there dance music every night.
