Comfort rooms in beautiful surroundingsPosted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: rooms, some of the evening programs were really interesting, beach is really nice
Cons: quality of food, especially in the restaurants, some of the stuff don't really speak good English, swimming pool rules,
I spent there 10 days and it was fun. I particularly liked the size of my room (deluxe double room), it is spacious, comfy and clean. there were few minor problems (the phone was out of order, shower not working at its best, safe got stuck ....but they fixed that!) the outside area is beautiful, they take good care of the plants, everywhere you go it's green. The swimming pool is big, most of the guests just like to chill out there. I like to swim and be active so I had trouble getting my space there as there was that one line that was designated for length to length swimming but nobody respected that and the hotel doesn't have any rules regulating it so I gave up. The sea is not good for swimming, always very law level but the sand is so white and colors are just adorable. The food was ok, average quality, good variety, can be better. Sauna and spa treatments overpriced. Generally I think that the overall rate is a bit high but that is a problem with entire Africa.

Good valuePosted Nov 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was vey comfortable modern in a quiet location. Staff were very friendly but service could be slow. Even though it was all inclusive there were options to dine exclusively at a price and the portrayed, up market, seafood restaurant option was inviting. Food was great and inexpensive but lacked atmosphere but maintained the slow service. We could perhaps accept this if it was included but never when we pay. Another issue was the constant harrassment of the beach sellers but overall the hotel offered a relaxing break with good food and entertainment.

Miglior resort immaginabilePosted Oct 28, 2013
Pros: Tutto, un posto da sogno consigliato vivamente!
Cons: Caffè espresso non paragonabile a quello italiano e forse qualche dolce "italiano" in più , ma significa proprio voler trovare un difetto
Location: Interessante l'esclusione alle piantagioni di spezie! Ps: portate i qualche caramella x i bambini che verranno in cerca di qualcosa, una merendina...
Personale cordialissimol e sorridente, camera pulita,struttura eccellente, cibo e bevande abbondanti e sempre comprese nel all inclusive.beach boys un po' stressanti ma educati e comunque cordiali.da fidarsi delle loro escursioni quando hanno il tesserino. Costano meno di quelle ufficiali e sono comunque interessanti e particolari.internet solo a pagamento, ma è' stato un modo per rilassar si davvero! Sentitevi liberi di portare indumenti vecchi, penne e quaderni per i bambini, c'è una povertà' indescrivibile e caramelle x i bimbi , vi riempiranno il cuore! C'è un villaggio dopo potete andare a trovarli e visitare il villaggio, le loro scuole... Rimarrete tristemente sorpresi ma avrete modo di fare del bene con pochi dollari. Meraviglioso resort da sogno! Andateci! Portate i qualche medicinale perché non potete certo contare di trovare una farmacia... È' davvero terzo mondo al di la dei resort.i beach boys e i massi sulla spiaggia vi racconteranno tanto della loro realtà' se lo vorrete e vi guideranno a conoscere il luogo.

Lovely and relaxingPosted Feb 17, 2013
Pros: stunning grounds
Cons: dining-room staff interrupting
Location: beautiful beachfront
The location is stunning; the grounds are immaculate; staff are friendly and the rooms are very comfortable. I was in a junior suite and we had a view of the ocean. The whole site was kept spotlessly clean. There was a very good variety of food and drinks for all. Unfortunately I did get sick the first night, so I didn't really get to make the most of my all-inclusive, but one of those things. It is a lovely hotel and I enjoyed my stay. I've travelled extensively and usually stay in more modest hotels and, whilst I don't mean these as criticisms, there are just a few things that I feel are needed to make it the kind of top resort it is 'meant' to be. : -the name advertised on all the sites is different to the one on the gates/ road outside. It makes finding it very tricky! -you have to go in search of pool lounger cushions each day, when they should be put out first thing -wait staff in the dining room are overly attentive, to the point of being annoying. There were times when it was impossible to have a conversation without being interrupted. They all seemed to be responsible for all of the tables, rather than a section. This meant that each one asked you the same questions -in contrast, at the pool, I would expect to find waiters taking drinks at the pool. This happened very occasionally but normally you had to go to the bar. Not a hassle, just not 'all inclusive'

Gute Adresse fuer ein paar Tage AusspannenPosted Oct 31, 2012
Pros: Lage an einem schönen Sandstrand
Cons: Es gibt nihts außerhalb der Anlage, man ist letztendlich an die Anlage gebunden
Location: Direkt am weißen Sand Strand,
Preis-Leistung ist ok Personal war sehr freundlich und bemüht, wenn es auch nicht immer zeitnah reagiert hat Ausflüge die über die Rezeption gebucht wurden, mussten nachher bar bezahlt werden, obwohl explizit Kreditkartenztahlung vereinbart wurde, das war nicht sehr professionell

Wonderful Place to Relax after a safariPosted Aug 13, 2012 on Hotels.com
After a week in the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro crater, we wanted to spend a few days at the beach, and the Dream of Zanzibar was absolutely perfect. The beach was beautiful, everything was immaculately kept, and we didn't have to worry about anything. Service was excellent, and the food, while not exciting, was more than adequate. We opted for the African restaurant both days, but there were a variety of other choices. Our only "gripe" -- and it's not much of a gripe considering we were in Zanzibar -- is that the internet was not 100% reliable (and not available in the rooms). For an all-inclusive resort, it seemed odd to charge for internet access that was availible only in the pool area and the reception area. But that was a very small matter. We would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone.

Très bon hôtel, qui propose des chambres de qualité et un environement agréable. les points positifs son tles suivants : un accueil chaleureux, la qualité du service des repas, la propreté des chambres et la fonctionnalité, les deux piscines très grandes, les repas de midi servis sur la plage (barbecue), les cocktails.Les points perfectibles : all in : les cocktails, les repas, les serviettes, le kayak sot inclus, par contre, l'accès internet, l'accès au spa sont payants. De plus, il est difficile d'organiser des activités non "conventionnelles" : on voulait simplement faire de la plongée, sans le package sortie à l ajournée et cela a quaismment été impossible à organiser. La plage est très belle, mais peu de choses à voir dans les fonds sous marins. Enfin, pas de petit village à proximité pour changer d'air. On est quand même très content de notre séjour, et nous sommes repartisplien de souvenir en tête!
