Last summer was one the best of my life, and the hotel where I stayed contributed a lot! Dolphin resort is a beatiful and calm hotel in Zanzibar. The personnel is charming and the infrastructure is incredible: you feel you're living alone in your island. On the other side, if you are not looking for very calm holidays, alone on... More

Fantastic resort! I have been only once in Zanzibar. However, i have been in many islands with my fiancee during last years. This hotel is nicely integrated into the local lifestyle and nature. They organize good water activities from the hotel not overrated. Outstanding sunsets, ideal spot for romantic dinners. Well managed by very friendly people!
