Staff couldn't do enough. Food options in even in the buffet restaurant varied each day which kept it interesting. Zanzi Bar is awesome, the beach is so lovely. The themed dinner was EXCELLENT!! Food quality was so high, service great and entertainment fun to watch.. The Italian, needs improving. Way to noisy from the kitchen, made it uncomfortable. Drinks didn't come for ages. This restaurant has huge potential because of the view, so defo needs improving to make it a pleasant ambience.. Other than this, would definitely recommend and would 100% come back.

We were absolutely blown away by our holiday at Tui Blue 😍 we spent a week at Tui and from the moment we checked in up until our check-out day we were treated like royalty! From Haji picking us up from the airport, cold waters and sitcom on hand, an informative check-in brief and all round service - this resort IS attention to detail. The rooms are spacious, modern and well-serviced. The bar staff, especially Aisha and Nurudin were funny, friendly and attentive! We attended a wine tasting with Javier which was informative and fun! We had breakfast at ‘The Restaurant’ every morning and we’re greeted with a friendly and helpful Kiia, Christina and Clara! They remembered us and made each meal so special! I cannot recommend the resort enough! Counting down the days until we get back!

This was an absolutely lovely and perfect holiday. The staff are super friendly! Aisha and Nurudin were especially helpful. The food is amazing, it was like living out my dessert dream.

Staff and service make this hotel brilliant! We stayed here for 10nights. We had very smooth pick up from the airport. Just be patient at the airport, as it takes time and is very confusing what you should do, but remember you are in Zanzibar so pole pole. When we arrived in the morning in the hotel we have been welcomed and went for a breakfast. The room wasn’t ready until 13ish but that’s not a problem. You can change for more suitable clothes and hit the beach/pool etc and start your holidays. There is App which you can download and all I for about hotel/entertainment/booking the restaurant etc is there. The hotel is fantastic. We were at the end of the dry season so hotel wasn’t full. At each part of the day you can find space at the pool or beach. Dinning/Drinks Each night you can book a choice from 3 restaurants, and in Sat and Tue there is a full buffet served at the pool or beach. Which is fantastic! So don’t miss it! Food is fresh and delicious. Please don’t expect extremely wide variety of food. There is a good choice, of local food, roast, chicken you will always find something for you. Drinks, there is a good choice of local and international dinks(for international you pay additionally). The staff and service is absolutely amazing! Staff try to remember your drinks, your names, and make your stay so pleasurable. They are not at your face but they observe and are visible when you need them. I would only suggest that breakfast drinks could be more organised and consistent. The coffee each day tasted different(but there is a bar, so straight after b’fast we went for coffee from a machine). Sometimes we have been asked up to 5times from different staff if we have ordered drinks, so not sure how they share the table service. That is only happening at b’fast but lunch/dinner is spot on. The beach boys. Remember you are at Zanzibar, the beach boys are there and if you engage with them they won’t stay away. It’s part of holiday experience. However if you are one of the person who enjoys the walks on the beach, you either accept the beach boys or come early in the morning or lunch time. Overall this hotel is very relaxing and quite’ish, which we enjoyed!

Dear Inidi, hello from tropical Zanzibar. Thank you for taking the time to share such informative feedback regarding your stay, but most importantly, thank you for choosing TUI BLUE. I'm so happy that we met your expectations with our fresh food and beverage selections amongst our 4 inclusive outlets. I find the dinner around the pool or on the beach as one of the many highlights at the hotel. There's something special about being under the stars and palm trees, that makes the experience unforgettable, so we are happy that you got to share in that. I have taken note about the drinks during breakfast and will ensure with the food and beverage team that the taste remains consistent. Regarding the team repeatedly asking for your orders, I will also look into this, as everyone has their designated areas. Irrespective, our team here is amazing and it's great that you could recognize it too, and that they made your time with us extra special. Thank you for your valuable feedback and we hope to welcome you back in the near future. All the best,

Our 7 night stay 19-26 March 2022 was as close to PERFECT a breakaway can be. This place is 10 STARS(although advertised as 5*) and met all our expectations. It was our 10 year wedding anniversary and the hotel just made everything so special for us. The friendly staff at the hotel is something we will always remember. Thank you TUI BLUE Bahari Zanzibar .
