The property is on the opposite side of the more populated beaches, so it’s very quiet - which is good thing if you are looking to fully relax. There is no wifi in the rooms which means you need to be in the lobby to get electronic access. The buffet often ran out of food if you didn’t get there as soon as it opened. There wasn’t much variety in the food. If you buy an all inclusive bracelet, there are no snacks unless you buy something from the restaurant on the beach. So you are looking at being locked into a scheduled time to eat. The Safari Blue and Spice Tours is top notch. But book from a guy on the beach (they are trust worthy); the hotel is expensive. The same with airport transfer - the hotel charges $50, but someone on the beach charges $25usd. Want your hair braided or a massage, ask for Mama Zanzibar or Gloria on the beach. They do a fantastic job and their charge is more than half what the hotel charges.

We stayed for 8 nights. The location is amazing and the beach is very quiet and clean. All Excursions were organised by the hotel. Ujudi is an amazing employee, an asset to the hotel. Always kind and helpful. All of the other staff were very kind. Rooms were very clean. We loved the fact the hotel had some resident cats, please continue to keep them and feed them.

We are a family from Poland with 2 childs, we rederved at the begin for 10 days , but we have been there more than 2 months ! Why ? Sure the Zanzibar island has something special, the weather, the sea, the local people make this place as something magic ! But we stayed so long thanks the friendly environment in Uroa Bay residence. Our family apartment was big with 2 bathrooms, air con. In every room, equiped kitchen , a big garden outside in an incredible beachfront. The pubblic places are daily cleaned, 2 swimming pools , 2 bars, every day shows, 2 restaurants . The food was good, with many differents daily menu at the buffet. The staff is mostly of local workers, they effort to be efficent , sure they was very nice with us. Finally a nice and relaxing place to spend an holiday for families but not only... The resort offer the presence of a doctor everyday , spa, escursions. Value for money ok !! see you soon Uroa bay resort !! We love it !! Izabela and family

The best part of the hotel is the beach! In the pictures, it looks awful, but in reality, is beautiful! And we have the opportunity to swim in the ocean every day! Our room and bathroom were huge, but dark because we were on the 1st floor. The staff was rude and barely spoke English. The restaurant and the food were the worst. The overall impression was about low hygiene, incompetent staff and dirt.
