"Secluded & private-feel beachside boutique resort."
One of the most beautiful and private-feel beachside boutique resorts we have ever been around the world. Wonderful, friendly, and responsible staff. Room has ocean view and is decorated with local African flavors. The views inside and towards the ocesn are breathtaking. The small bay by the resort interacting with local village fishing boats and kids paying in the water, especially at the sunset moment, makes it the most beautiful life scene in the world! The "Samaki Samaki" dinner with local musicians playing by the bay was so great and so memorable! We love HMBL and will come back.

"Incredible lodge in an idyllic setting!"
My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights after a long safari in mainland Tanzania and 7 nights in the quiet, restful Michamvi. We wanted to stay close to Stone Town, but not in the center as we wanted to relax before the long flight home. Hakuna Matata did not disappoint - it was a beautifully kept lodge, respectful to the natural environment and showcasing the ancient ruins. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the bungalow we stayed in was stunning with a view over the private cove. One of our best nights in Tanzania was having a cocktail on the terrace overlooking the sea, watching thousands of bats fly overhead from Prison Island to Stone Town - a real spectacle! Can't recommend highly enough for a peaceful, luxury break just outside Stone Town.

"Hotel in Stone Town"
I had a lovely stay at the Al Minaar. This is the smart traveller's choice in Stone Town. It is minutes away from the beach, but still centrally located and close to everything. It is wonderfully quiet and tastefully decorated. The rooms are spacious, with all amenities. The staff goes out of its way to be helpful. They organized an airport pickup at midnight and were waiting at reception with a glass of chilled juice. The manager even noticed an error in my travel itinerary, which gave me chance to correct it! I recommend this hotel wholeheartedly.

"beautiful place with great people"
I highly recommend this beautiful, boutique, and affordable hotel located in a centre of Stone Town. I stayed there for 3 days in Dec 2012 in a Deluxe Single room. The room was small but very nice and clean, with beautiful bathroom, stylish furniture, hot water, TV (which I didn't have a chance to watch#, and perfectly working AC. The hotel itself is very beautiful with oriental interior, gorgeous paintings, and awesome rooftop restaurant which can easily compete with famous Hurumzi place.The waiters were very polite, smiling and very attentive, food is delicious #really mean it#. The staff at the front desk, especially Ali Salum, went out of their way to accomodate my every need. At one point, I complained about the noise from the street and I was immediately relocated to a different room. Moreover, my flight was in the evening #check out time is 12 noon) and, when I asked about any place to refresh myself, the let me use the massage room. Everthing was done with a smile and great attitude. It's an awesome place with great people. I thank you, guys, again, for making my stay in Zanzibar so pleasant!!! Thanks, Ali!!! Warm regards, Izabela

"A welcome to treasure"
The hidden treasure of The Rosal Hotel is the owners and staff! It is a budget hotel and does not pretend otherwise, but the welcome, care, and concern is as if you are a prodigal child newly returned. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone who works there - and they mean it! The owners are great hosts and their enthusiasm is infectious. It is easy to overlook any physical imperfections with the establishment when you realize the management will do its utmost to put everything as right as possible so you can feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

"Great location"
The hotel is just 2min walking distance from the port, museum, old fort, really nice location. Safe to walk around. Very big room and bathroom, furniture in colonial style so you feel like you are in a different world, nice decorations all over the hotel, really nice breakfast on the rooftop. I'm very fussy about the hotels so i'm really glad I stayed in this hotel.
