I am planning a trip to Tanzania - safari followed by 3 nights in Zanzibar and am hoping to get some advice. Basically, I am trying to decide between 3 choices - Kilindi, Star or the East, and Ras Nungwi. I know that the 3rd might be less luxurious than the other two, but it still looked nice online.
What I'm looking for is - a great beach (nice enough to swim in), as well as a really nice pool; good food (many negative reviews of the food at Baraza/Palms took those out of the running for me), and few insects (I know it's the beach, but I'm quite bug averse and really avoid places that are open air allowing bugs into the rooms). I'm looking for a nice room as well, preferably oceanfront. This is the last leg of my trip and I want to make sure it's up to par with the other hotels I'm staying at (incl. Serengeti Bushtops). Anyway, if anyone has stayed at these places and could offer advice it would be most appreciated! Also, please let me know if there are others that I should be considering as well. Thanks!
