The hotel have a nice level of service in everything from food to accommodation and surroundings. The week was one constant positive variation of meals, there is always something for everyone in the group to eat.
Seashore can only be used during high tide, but it did nothing when the pool area was enough, also with it´s bar and free towels. A very nice place.

Exceeded expectations, stunning setting, luxurious rooms, delicious food. Above all, exceptional service w/ the tone being set by Samuel Bond, the energetic, hard working GM whose attention to detail and our needs was second-to-none.

I loved the grounds, the peace and quiet. The food was great for adults not for children under 4, my child kept saying pilipili ( pepper) mama as the food was spicy. I arrived at 1 in the afternoon tired and hungry with a 3 year old in tow and had to wait an hour for my booking to be sorted. Great rooms and views from the room though through out my stay the balcony was never cleaned.

Dear Mghoi M

Thank you for the time to write a review and provide us with your feedback.

We regret to hear that some of dishes were a bit spicy for your 3 year old and this has been brought to the attention of our Executive Chef for recommend dishes that is more suitable for children on our buffet.

The hotel’s check in time is 2pm , our apology again that you had to wait an hour upon your arrival at 1pm to ensure our rooms are well prepared for our guests check-in at 2pm. We try our very best to accommodate our guests who arrive early especially during the high December season period. Therefore we invite our guests to make use of our luggage storage facilities while enjoying the Resorts facilities and lunch down at our pool side.

Thank you for bringing your room’s balcony to our attention which our Executive Housekeeper investigated with your assigned room attendant and the needful actions were taken.

Thank you once again for choosing Ocean Paradise Resort for your stay.

Warmest regards

This was a gorgeous resort. Best food at an all inclusive I have ever had and really beautiful surroundings. We stayed in a beach bungalo and it was very peaceful and just steps from the beach. Perhaps the best thing about this resort is the staff, one and all they were amazing. We must particularly thank Elizalea and Samuel. They made our stay really lovely and are just great people to chat with (when they have time!). Also Patricia, Francis and Said along with many others. One lovely young man who was a gardener climbed a tree and brought us fresh coconuts every day, delicious! We can't thank you all enough for a wonderful stay. Tracy & Wendy

The design of this resort is excellent. It is quiet and peaceful throughout the day. The staff offer excellent service and the food is great. The only reason I am not giving an excellent rating is that the shower was a little smelly during the day. I have no idea why because the cleaning staff do a good job. This is not a big deal if you do not plan to spend all your time in the room. If your life depends on internet access then you might also find it a little inconvenient because it did not work that well in the rooms.

We regret to learn about the shower which our maintenance team investigated and fixed.

The internet services, especially on the North East beaches are not as strong as one can expect in a city. With limited internet service providers we try our best to ensure our guests can enjoy an internet connection.

A beautifully designed resort full of lush vegetation and beautifully designed buildings. Not to mention a peaceful, idilic beach and spacious pool. Perfect!! The food was also excellent- a huge spread each morning for breakfast and different "themed" nights for dinner. I am normally very weary of going half board but the dinner choice was vast and different each night. They also had an ice cream bar which sealed the deal for me!! Our room was a standard garden room but it was spacious and had a lovely balcony with sea views.

My only criticism was the village walk- which was very insightful until the guide handed out a huge box of chocolate bars to the local kids and then suggested we buy it for them. Many of us on the trip felt very uncomfortable with this and would have preferred giving the money to the local school or medical clinic- rather than aiding the childrens' teeth decay! It was also distressing having the children chasing us round all the time, trying to steal bars out of the box. It was building the wrong kind of relationships between locals and tourists.

Everyone should go and visit this place! If you can only do one holiday in your lifetime then go to this place. The beach is White, soft sand. The sea is blue and warm. Perfectly named..... Paradise! The hotel is beautiful, very well looked after, fantastic staff, food was just wonderful and we had hot water daily.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean, it is as the name suggests a little piece of paradise. From your arrival at Zanzibar Airport, the resort is a meandering 45 minute journey through un-spoilt scenery, passing typical African villages where the way of life has changed little for hundreds of years. At Ocean Paradise Resort Zanzibar, you will be greeted by a blaze of colour as you sweep down the imposing driveway, saluted by a Masai warrior as you pass through the entrance gate and be captivated as you arrive in reception and look out over the resort and the azure blue sea. Mature coconut palms swinging in the breeze, white sandy beach, beautiful landscaped gardens, traditional style round chalets with pitched makuti roof, a stunning waterfall feature and the largest swimming pool in Zanzibar are just some of the sights that await you. A big smile and the greeting of "Jambo" will be the first words you hear, as you begin to feel the warmth that the people of Zanzibar are famed for. ... more   less
