We went to Zanzibar for 3 days before going on safari, and Zanzibar Retreat Hotel was a great place to unwind after our long travel. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful (Mathias especially was a great conversationalist and very resourceful), food was good (a little salty at times). We opted for the bed & breakfast option, which was so filling that we didn't usually eat again until dinner (onsite). I opted not to have half or full board so we could have the option to eat elsewhere (ha!) but this turned out to be more economical anyway, probably because we only drank during happy hour.
