Ive just come back from the most amazing holiday to Zanzibar with my wife and 2 kids aged 2 and 4, booked through African Encounters (Farzanah). Ive been to Zanzibar previously and stayed at Mapenzi and La Gemma, which are both wonderful properties!
I must say the service received from the time I started enquiries through Farzanah who gave me a few options and ended up on her recommendation to Karafuu which is the perfect place for what I had in mind.... to the time I departed was just amazing!
Thanks Farzanah for a wonderful holiday, the family still wont stop talking about it!
I would like to give a special thanks to Zakariyah (MANAGER) for making me feel at home.
Mr Akida , Farida, Hoosen, Mr Ebrahim and Idrees (dive centre) and Mr Yusuf from the pool area were fantastic.. The chef from the restaurant went beyond and above to assist with all the meal request and a very special thank you to all of them... sometimes the assistance of the staff and how they treat you make a world of difference and this is how i felt about Karafuu.
I stayed in the cottage rooms which were nice and spacious, the only negative thing I have is the rooms are very dark, Ive already voiced my concerns with the hotel and by them putting in lighter furniture or getting more natural light in the place will really boost the feel of the resort.
I will definetly recommend friends and family to visit this resort, its "africa" standard and I wont promote it as a 5*, So, as long as you have this in mind you wont be dissapointed and you will have a great trip!
