After almost 20 hours of travelling to Zanzibar we arived at Maruhubi Beach Villas and was met by the manager Juma who turned out to be very helpful.
For us it was very pleasant to be able to choose between a pool and the ocean, to have our meals in the very good restaurant and to be able to use the internet - for free.
We came to Zanzibar to relax and enjoy the African atmosphere and to be energized before returning back to Europe. Staying at Maruhubi gave us a beautiful opening of our holliday and the staff helped us arrange tours to Stonetown and tell us about the island.

Maruhubi Beach Villas just out of the Stone Town has a quite little beach with a view overlooking, Snake and Prison/Islands.

Great Sunsets.

Rooms are large and spacious, service is great, friendly management and a laid back atmosphere.

The tide when high comes right up to the swimming pool and restaurant!!

A great little hideaway next to the birth place of Princess Salme.

What more can I say!

The location is great, just near Stone Town (5 km) and the rooms are beautiful, clean and well maintained with huge beds and mosquito nets, air conditioners and nice bathrooms. The creek runs up the back of the 12 rooms and there are giant verandas. The end rooms are surrounded on three sides by water at high tide.
The best aspect for me was the 21 metre pool right on the beach front, clear and nice for exercising in the morning and evening. The kids loved the rooms - I was glad there was no tv - and the price in April was fine. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times, including cooking the fishes my son and daughter caught earlier that day.
Steps to improve could be more restaurant staff, Internet and/or wifi and maybe some entertainment (dart board, etc.)
