More than suitable! Go to the South East Coast. In Jambiani, the Mango Beachhouse is possibly the nicest accommodation that you can find - personal, individual with a lot of care taken for the guests. There are also some very good mid-range hotels around, like Blue Oyster or Casa del Mar.

From there, it is possible to do some tours - try the local operator Mambo Poa Tours for some excursions like snorkelling, Jozani Forest or Spice Tour.

At the beginning or the end, stay in Stone Town for a couple of days. Stone Town Cafe BB is the best option, with best breakfast around and central location. They have lovely rooms.

Those two are my favs about Zanzibar. If you want to hear more, go to Ndame Beach Lodge in Paje for a nice lunch or dinner and ask there for more recommendations.
