This was our first visit here, together with friends that have been living on Zanzibar for a while and frequented Swahili Beach Resort on the weekends. The resort is a little bit worn, but still in alright condition. There is a tranquil athmosphere, and the staff is very friendly. It was very clean, not many mosquitos and with mosquito tents...

This place is very run down. Absolutely not looked after. The switches in the rooms are hanging out. The taps are leaking. The restaurant is pathetic. The staff really tries but they are not trained to deliver a service which will make you overlook the negatives. Would not stay here again.

The place is okay but for what you pay for I expected more. The electricity went out a few times. The pool was dirty. The resturant didnt deliver what was ordered. I couldnt pay the stay with my credit card because the terminal was borrowed to another hotel. I had to go to Stown Town to get cash to pay... More

This is truly a beautiful resort, and the staff are wonderful. We stayed there for one week in late October, 2014. The owner needs to appoint a manager and provide funding for updating and maintaining this beautiful place. The owner also needs to embark on a marketing plan. During the week we stayed there, only two other chalets were occupied... More
