I've been at the Wakiki the last week of August and the place is awesome. The location is very strategic, the staff is very nice, rooms are very very clean and the happy hour organized by Marcello makes your holiday. So if you want to go to Zanzibar just go there!

Stayed: August 2012, traveled with friends

it has been my third time in Zanzibar and my first at the Waikiki resort. it's a small international resort right on pwani machangani beach, better to say, on the best part of it.the long sandy .
beach, the tides, the resort itself give you the most exciting and ( at the same time) relaxing idea of what Paradise could be .
the resort is run by three nice and friendly guys who try to prevent and fulfill all your desires and a great care is set on the food at the restaurant and the drinks at the nice place on the beach.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable some with air conditioning and some with fans and last of all the price is definitely affordable and even cheap considering what you get there!

Flavio and his wife sarah are more than welcoming as they invite you into their 15 room paradise. This resort gave interactions with the locals who were more than excited to teach you swahili if you are interested and a quiet atmosphere where you can enjoy the beautiful blue ocean and white white sand. The food is unbelievable and everyone is so friendly, going out of their way to make your vacation everything you'd hoped for. If you want to go to an all-inclusive resort where you feel as if you're in Mexico this one is not for you but if you want to feel what zanzibar has to offer this is perfection.

Room Tip: The rooms with air conditioning seem to be newer and definitely worth the money!

We just came back from our holiday/wedding at Waikiki! Withut a doubt it was definatley the best holiday I have ever been on ! During the mornings there was an abundant fruit supply including the most delicious mangoes as well other cooked breakfast options. There was hardly any wind most mornings make it perfect to walk down the beach, lie in the sun, rent a SUP or just swim ! When the tyde goes there is a lagoon less than 10 meters away to swim in. The afternoons were commonly windy - which was great as we were a party consisting mainly of kite surfers - the instructors were great too ! By the time we got back to our rooms they were very clean and they were sprayed. The adults chilled at the bar before dinner and the kids ran rampant on the safe beaches with security as precautions - I constantly felt safe. The messiah men and other (very few of them) 'beach venders ' did not venture up to Waikiki. The meals were delicous but if one found them a little much ( I have unsophisticated taste buds) there was always the option of the kiddies menu which was just as good ! Flavio and Sarah were such wonderful hosts to us and catered to our every need - even re cooking a meal 4 times because a four year old coukdnt make up his mind ! This really was an amazing holiday and I'm going to make sure that they renew their vows their so we can go back !

We booked the entire resort for family and friends - 35 people including families, singles, couples etc. Waikiki has the best beach in Zanzibar. The most amazing and friendly management headed up by Flavio & his family. With unbelievable personal touch, they were incredibly accommodating and energetic, providing for our every need. They have a beach bar which is the perfect meeting place after a day in the sun and a great little personal restaurant. You wont be dissapointed to stay in this well run and clean resort - great value for money!! Everyone had an unforgettable time.
We will definitely be returning to Waikiki!

Room Tip: There are 3 types of room. The best value is the mid - level "Safari room" which is clean, large and has A/C.
