"Great beach, nice pool, amazing vibe and staff"
Generally a great place to stay in Zanzibar. The staff is lovely, always helpful and smiling and contributing immensely to having a great stay. The Hotel's Gabi Beach is lovely; the secret is to time your visit to the beach to the tide: when the tide is out, you can't swim. But you can walk all the way out to the coral reef and see the coral with your naked eye. The rooms are clean, but they are getting a little dated and it's time for a refresh. Also, there were sometimes funny smells in the toilet and the outdoor shower. The food was OK, except for Swahili night which was great. Gabi beach was always the best place for lunch, and second to that for lunch and dinner the Spice Market. From what I hear, this is a standard 5 star experience in Zanzibar, although it would be closer to 4 stars by European standards. The Wifi is only in the lobby, pool and main public areas, and does not reach the rooms, which is fine for a holiday destination like this. However where you do get Wifi, it works well and I unfortunately got a lot of work done. All in all, we had a wonderful stay, and it's a great place to get away and forget about it all.

"Hotel calme et de qualité"
Hotel calme et de taille humaine, à la déco soignée et moderne. Idéal pour le repos après un safari ! Belle plage, sauvage à ses extrémités. Belle et grande piscine à l'eau de mer. All inclusive incluant de nombreux cocktails. Restauration très satisfaisante .. pour un séjour d'une semaine. Certainement répétitif à la longue. personnel aimable et serviable.

"Beautiful hotel amazing veiws"
Very beautiful location and near most things. Although dissapointed the free shuttle bus was only running at 9am and back at 1pm. The hotel advertises that there is one at 2pm which is not true. Which meant getting a taxi there and back was very expensive $30 each way and stonetown. is a must for afternoon and evening. But the staff are super friendly a the rooms lovely as is the pools etc would recommend

"Well positioned hotel with great sea views"
It was our 40th wedding anniversary and a great place to stay, very comfortable, relaxed, good amenities and very helpful staff. A nice touch were jasmine flowers on the bedside table the night of our anniversary, also an unexpected bonus was the free shuttle up the coast from Stone Town to their private beach. They provided a driver just for the 2 of us as there were no others going that day. However we discovered the beach was not that great for swimming given the number of rocks -Aussies are spoilt for beaches, but they did provide diving shoes to protect our feet and it was great having a beach all to ourselves with attentive staff to provide food and drinks in the middle of nowhere, with shade and towels as well. The room was quite cramped, but well appointed with a massive bed and super comfy pillows, small bathroom, not somewhere you could easily lounge, but a great balcony overlooking the pool and sea where you could relax. Breakfast buffet was included, plentiful, tasty with plenty of choice and again on the morning of our anniversary pink sparkling wine provided complimentary. A nice touch as we sat by the open window drinking in the Indian Ocean as well.

La Madrugada Beach Hotel

"A comfortable hotel on Zanzibar. "
I liked the location. Would say it's one of the most southern hotels. The beach wasn't all that wonderful as it had to be cleared of coral and they have left a few sharp bits. The wind wasn't as fierce either as some of the northern beaches. The swimming pools made up for the beach though. They were excellent. The service was fine and the food was good and everyone tried to be helpful.

Paradise Beach Resort

Road Marumbi, Uroa - Map
Ras Shungi Beach Resort au lieu du Paradise car celui ci a brûlé. Personnel très accueillant, chambre très simple mais grande. Pas de pression à la douche (eau salée). Un peu galère...Repas assez répétitif mais correct. Ponton superbe. Toute petite plage : attention aux rochers et aux oursins, vaux mieux se baigner au ponton, que du sable. Excursions à ne pas rater : Mnemba et Pungwi en combiné une journée malgré les 4h aller-retour, le paradis !!! et le quad en brousse : tout simplement fantastique. Pour résumé, hôtel simple, très excentré et loin de tout mais ne pas oublier que vous êtes à Zanzibar et que l'île n'est pas encore très connue des touristes. Par contre, où que vous soyez, vous serez toujours seul au monde...pas de tourisme de masse, donc un vrai bonheur. Les paysages sont sublimes et les habitants authentiques. Un voyage à ne pas rater. Bon voyage !
