“Perfect location!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We stayed in the sea view rooms, which as promised had amazing views of the sea! The beach is literally on your door step. The rooms are very spacious and clean! They have their own restaurant but there are quite a few others along the beach to try. We arranged massages through Arabian nights annex but I would give that a miss! Everything else was great. I would stay there again. Its also great value for money considering the views.

Arrived late in the evening and had some confusion with booking, which was sorted out nicely. We got fantastic rooms and manager himself showed rooms and taught all details, starting with where to find light switches. It was great, because my mother has seeing disability, and new places is always a little bit struggle. I did diving course and during days rest of the family had great time. Breakfast had been great. There were lot of different kind of travellers, which was nice. Lively, but still quiet and relaxing place. We ate at diving center the lunch which was fantastic and supper at local place just outside the hotel, also fantastic. "Paje at night" did not have great food ( at least compared to other 2 places), though was more busy and fancy.

The sea view room was spacious and right on the beach.
The man who checked us in showed us how to set the password on the safe and told us to keep our valuables there.
After returning from lunch a few hours later we opened the safe to find a good portion of our US cash stolen.
We confronted the manager and he denied that this had happened and refused to believe us. He asked us to leave the next day (which we were extremely happy to do). When they refunded us for the remainder of the nights we had prepaid for we were 'cheated' again!
Two of the US100 bills were pre 2003 (not the new crisp bills we prepaid with) and are not accepted in Zanzibar.

At the end of april begining may myself and fiance visited zanzibar we stayed at paje beach arabian nights. Upon arrival we were picked up by a tour operating company from the airport. We were abit sceptical and nervous at first but once we arrived at our hotel and met masood the manger at arabian nights we were extremely happy. The manager and staff gave us world class service through out our stay, we really formed a 2nd family as we were given the best treatment ever. thanks to miraaj (waiter) and kayumba (cook) the food was phenominal. They arranged All tours,transport and food for us :) I would defenatley go back to arabian nights masoods manager is a great guy and he did a great job to keep us happy and satisfying our needs, his a gud magician aswell lol thanks arabian nights keep up the great hospitality

I have stayed in 3 different places along the beach at Paje now. We stayed here in November 2011 so apologies for only getting round to reviewing now. We had booked an ocean view villa and the room was very spacious and generally clean. The cleaning ladies made a great effort every day creating different flower arrangements on the bed which my G/F loved.
The check-in was very easy and the staff very helpful. The private pool was a lovely retreat when we wanted some quite time off the beach and we would happily sit here with a cold Safari in the early evening.
We only ever ate breakfast and the food was a very typicaly Zanzibarian breakfast which usually consisted of some eggs (spanish omlette, fried or scrambled) and some bread / toast. It did the job without being spectacular and we never had any reason to complain.
We loved watching the cows walking down the beach and that coupled with the fact that we had an unhindered view from our room straight out on to the Indian Ocean was pretty special.
I would happily stay here again; it was certainly value for money although it wouldn't be classed as luxurious. I love the people and Zanzibar so I may be a little biased but I have been to Zanzibar 3 times now and stayed in 6 or 7 different places.

I left StoneTown Zanzibar with the thought that i would just go to Paje for 2 days with no accommodation booked . Checked out a few hotels and found The lovely Masoud the manager of the Arabian nights hotel i decided this was the perfect place for me. I booked in for 3 days and now i'm still here booked another 3 days I just don't want to leave.
So now about the hotel
I have booked mid range room poolside its just beautiful clean and spacious and the staff are something else . So attentive helpful and honest. The restaurant food is fantastic I had the best spiced prawns ever and so fresh nothing is a problem to them just ask.
Masoud the manager should be proud of the way the place is running he is doing a wonderful job . Well done Masoud and hope the new season is wonderful to you and your amazing staff. I will be back .

Room Tip: just go within your budget . all the rooms are great and they accommodate all levels of budget. . Th...
