Dubai, United Arab Emirates
An absolutely amazing experience. The Level at Melia Zanzibar was everything we could have hoped for a fantastic family holiday. The rooms at the level are huge, well laid out and offer great privacy. The views from our room were breathtaking. The food in all four of the restaurants was consistently delicious and the staff phenomenally helpful and friendly. Our family enjoyed a great mix of active times together on the beach and restful times on the well-shaded daybeds at the pool. All-in-all, we had a memorable time and look forward to visiting again. Thank you to the Level - Melia.

Words can not express the amazing time we had at Melia Zanzibar, but specially I need to thank everyone involved at The Level, where we stayed. First of all, I need to thank Javier González, the Level manager, who was always in concern of our needs before, during, and after the travel, so thanks for treating your clients so well. And I can't forget all the people that was always there receiving us with a smile and resolving our doubts as for example Abdul, thanks for always knowing what we needed, we felt really special for your amazing treat to us :) And a huge and big thanks to Khalfan, Aswila and Silima, you are the best, rememberign all details and making our stay amazing :) As well all the people at the bar, specially Eliza, and the people at the pool bar, I remember George and Richard who I want to thank as well even they remembered what we had and we felt so special! And of course the rooms... speechless !! And the food was amazing, not only at the level, but as well, as we stayed there many days, we could have different days dinner at different restaurant and all them were soo goood. And thanks to all the housekeeping who prepared the bed always for us, the rooms were very clean as well !!! Thanks for making our honeymoon the best time, (can we come back already?) Raquel & Luis

We stayed with Meila during February 2020. I was fearful of traveling during this time because of COVID however, we were safe and accommodated for with Melia. All questions and concerns that we had were addressed and the staff was friendly and fun. We had a great time with everyone here and miss it! The rooms are beautiful and the grounds are breathtaking. We even got to see bushbabies! We hope to visit again in the future. **Note travel date should be February 2020.

Great place. 1) Territory of the Hotel is like a huge garden with some nice animals. Our wedding photo session was absolutely amazing. 2) Personal is very friendly and service is on a very high level. Special thx to mr Steven who was solving any problems nice and easy. 3) Food at the restaurants was awesome. Seafood was fresh every day. Level upgrade is for sure worth its money to get access to all 5 hotel restaurants. I hope we will return where soon.
