We stayed at the Casa Amarillo during our last trip to Zanzibar in October 2016 and had a wonderful time. The view from the terrace is magnificent and we thoroughly enjoyed having a glass of wine enjoying the sunsets each evening. The service was also excellent, the staff at the villa are very friendly and we had many tasty meals cooked by the villas chef. A couple of nights we took a taxi to the hotel and ate there which was also very convenient and lovely. The villa is very comfortable and the surroundings are peaceful and quiet, it is a perfect place for relaxing. There are sunbeds and umbrellas for sunbathing and the pool stays nice and cool even on very hot days, and is so refreshing. We started most of our days with a dip! We ventured out a little too, walking down to the beach (only about 10min) where we saw local fishermen with their boats and ladies walking over to the nearby island in search of crabs or oyster (we think!). I would recommend the villas for anyone wanting to enjoy the serenity of beautiful views and a charming hacienda-style villa, with a full service.
