Having stayed in Jambiani 25 years ago, it was fabulous to see it again and we couldn't have stayed anywhere better. Stunning position, great pool, hugely helpful and friendly staff and a cold beer whenever you needed it. We stayed in the family interconnecting suite which was huge and very comfortable and lovely and quiet at night. Mozzie nets and A/C made sleeping a breeze. If I get back in the next 25 years I hope the Ifa resort is there for me to stay....

Visited Zanzibar with my friend on June and we stayed at this beach front property and i must say we had an amazing experience :-) Our room was overlooking the beach & the pool, beautiful pool by the way. The room was spacious,huge bathroom,very clean and a private balcony equipped with 2 beds and a small table, the view from up there was just breathtaking. Good location close to the main road, close to Paje town(more shops around the town if you wanna buy snacks or something), the locals are amazing and oh the property has bicycles you can rent for the whole day we enjoyed cycling along the beach and we cycled to paje which was amazing The breakfast had very limited options however we enjoyed the pancake days, those were our favourite oh and the fish curry is to die for very delicious & hearty portion(kudos to the chef)..... Amazing, super friendly and helpful staff they gave us coconuts on our last day. Haji & the lady @ the reception were very kind. Raymond was just amazing, ever smiling and beautiful service. Kudos to the housekeeping staff they made us fall in-love with our beds everyday by how they spread the beds, different design everyday. Thanks to Shamsah who accommodated our requests. I highly recommend this hotel and definitely coming back

We've booked a Deluxe room with a view and it was truly spectacular from the 1st floor. We could just relax on the huge balcony and enjoy the view and the fresh breeze. We loved it! The bed was huge and super comfortable (with hard mattress - that's what we like) and we could see the turquoise water from it - just perfect! The staff was nice and helpful, very attentive. Breakfast was the best from the 3 places we stayed at. There is nothing we didn't like, the only thing I would like to mention is that at the beginning we were about to get a room that we did not book, one on the ground floor. After explaining that we will stick to what we paid for they prepared the 1st floor room for us, the one with the view. Waiting for it was pleasant though as the surroundings of IFA are breathtaking!

Thank you very much for taking your time and write us such an excellent review, to make things clear we would never give you the room that you did not book, we run a hotel in a professional way, the misunderstanding was you booked a Deluxe Double Room with Sea View and Balcony, this room can be either located on ground floor or first floor, initially we gave you on ground floor and you requested the first floor, as long as the room was available than we gave to you, I would suggest you in future any hotel you book you should ask in advance which floor preference you would prefer to stay, as it is always subject to availability and hotel have the right to locate you in either of the floor as long as you are getting same room. We really enjoyed your company at IFA, and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Regards Shamsah Jussa Manager Ifa Beach Resort

I had short stay but it was best ever over the East Coast and it is absolutely wonderful location if you love taking a pictures, woke up early morning meditate just by the pool with beautiful sounds of the waves to my ears, sit down and watch the local fishermen dhows returns while the Sunrises over the horizon. Take a moment walk down the beach. Watch men tend the boats and nets. Watch men set their sails and ask them to photograph, and a lot of things add up the best imaginable hotel stay, a glass of juice on the arrival. very Eco friendly hotel you would ever imagine.

The resort is very nice, well maintained gardens, swimming pool and plenty loungers around the pool and beach. The hotel needs to improve in the breakfast menu to make it more lively. overall food is ok can't say great. The rooms are very spacious, outside there is ample seating space. We had air-conditioning, which was very nice and cooling when it became hot in the middle of the night. staff are very good and helpful.
