I must say that having stayed at the Z hotel before and really liking the hotel, I was looking forward to this trip with my family. The hotel and the service did not disappoint. It is a great location and the views of the sea are amazing. Our guest rooms were of the highest standard and had all the modern amenities. I would put them on par with any 5 star boutique hotel I have stayed at. My wife and son enjoyed the relaxing time on the beach as well as a great boat trip organised by the hotel. The restaurant is the best al fresco dining I have exeperienced. It overlooks the sea and just so relaxing. The food was faultless. They were very accommodating to my young son. The General Manager, who has recently joined from a hotel in London made a point of coming to our table and asking us how our stay was. He gave us some tips about the island and was just very genuine in his hospitality. Unusually, he was very visible around the hotel. Even on our check out, he was there to wish us a good trip home. My wife had left her shoes in our room and before we were back home, he had personally emailed me to ask for a forwarding address. Now that is what I call knowing your guests and going the extra mile. If you are looking for the best hotel in Zanzibar, then the Z hotel is it. If you are looking for one of best GM's, they have him. I would recommend the island and the hotel to anyone who is a little more discerning and doesn't follow the beaten path. The second time round was better than the first. The service and welcome was just more personal. By the way if you do stay at the Z hotel, always ask for the GM - Mr. Hafeez. No doubt you will probably bump into him when you first arrive but do search him out. He made our stay special.
