A piece of Italy in Zanzibar! Beautiful location great room, Italian towels linen etc. and amazing food. This is a big resort and can cater for roughly 500 people, so not the best option if you want to be isolated. As per previous reviews, the resort is overwhelmingly Italian, so not the best option if you want to be included... More

I stayed at the resort in January and while the rooms were lovely and the attention to detail was awesome, there were things that could be improved. Whilst doing tours around the island, we had the chance to meet up with guests at other resorts. The general consensus was that all of these other resorts offered free wifi, while Voi... More

Very nice place. It is true that most of the guest are Italian and mist things are in Italian but the food is great the service is nice and so is the pool. I would go again. The pizza lunch was a bit disappointing. It would also be nice to have teal coffee instead of instant. A country that grows... More

We booked this because it was a last minute discount holiday, an what we really wanted was some guaranteed sunshine. It's a long flight (we stopped over in Muscat for two days) and an hour drive from the airport. We were met and driven and it's certainly less hassle if you can get the hotel to sort this for you....

Great holiday great resort, great service. Yes, most guests speak Italian, so what ? Staff were great, and the staff behind the front desk could not do enough. By only complaint was the air-con in the rooms was hopeless, so nights were very hot!!! Pool was great the sea wonderful. felt safe at all time.

I think by now it's clear if you've read a few reviews, that this is an ITALIAN resort. Staff speaks Italian (Some English as well) and the guests are by large Italian, as is the entertainment... so I hope you like Italian songs :) The great part about it being an Italian resort is the food, which very much so...
