"A bubble of paradise!"
We had an amazing time at the Zanzi resort, the location is beautiful and so peaceful, the food is great and all the staff are really friendly and they go out of their way to make everything so perfect. We didn't want to leave, hopefully we will get the chance to go back one day!

"Simple and Effective, missing the WOW factor"
As newlyweds Sea Cliff offers a pleasant experience, they do the basics very well but lack the WOW factor to make it an amazing experience. All of the staff were always polite and happy to help, however the pool staff didn't proactively approach guests for drinks/food requests on a regular basis, usually you need to go to the bar or hope that someone is passing. The inclusion of leisure activities for free (pool, squash, darts, bikes, table tennis, tennis, snorkelling, kayaking and other non-motorised water sports) are a good idea however they are of a low quality, for example the snorkels and masks were dirty and not cleaned after each guest, pool balls were missing, darts had no flights and bikes were unavailable. They offer a shuttle bus into Stone Town with little to no information, arriving in town the bus driver simply pulls over and indicates to leave the bus. With men hounding at the window as you pull up and following individuals for 50m to offer 'tour guide services' it was a bit much for the elderly couple who were traveling with us and could have been managed with a simple communication to guests. The list goes on, they set high guest expectations with their prices and fall short of amazing due to their neglect for the details. For our honeymoon and the price we paid I expected more, ultimately it has the ingredients for an amazing holiday and its disappointing that they go 90% of the way and yet fail to deliver due to seemingly a lack of care.

"A lot to love, but go in with eyes open"
There is a lot to love about this place, but it took me a couple of days to see it. For me there are some elements about the type of offer that this is that you need to consider carefully as to whether they are non negotiable for you for the perfect holiday. The resort is beautiful, but it is rustic and this might not fulfil everyone's expectations of a holiday. There is no air con, just some fans and luckily a constant sea breeze, . Don't expect things like tv's or fridges stocked with Pringles or cold soft drinks. This is eco luxury

"Top relaxation pick! "
The villas were detached from each others and each villa would have certain number of rooms that can have different companies who may shared the living room, a large patio and a fully equipped kitchen. I liked that all of the equipments are modern and at the highest quality. The comfort of the bed was beyond mesure. I asked the front desk to close the pool for extra privacy and they were more than happy to accommodate my request. The chef at the resort has a great Zanzibarian taste with modern twist. We were fourtunate enough to enjoy the half board and the special dinner he prepared. The only problem I encountered was about the final bill statment which had some doubles and Morgane helped in making things straight. I would definitely come again to enjoy the kite center and the nicest beach ever.

"A class act"
Perched tastefully back from a pristine beach, with the finest, porcelain-white sand, there is a minimalist, yet warm charm to Konokono. Individual villas, surrounded by native vegetation and red, pink and white bougainville, offer intimate privacy. Except from inquisitive white-faced monkeys. Every evening offers a different twist. Live music, sunset drinks, Swahili food and entertainment, and on-beach dining compete to claim favourite memory status. With charming, always grinning, local staff and thoughtful, expert international management, this place is a winner.

"Architecturally beautiful"
I arrived in Stone Town after dark and didn't see much; the entrance was dim. The taxi can park near but you must walk a bit, an itty bitty bit. Two floors of rooms with the restaurant on the roof, so there will be stairs. AC was terrific with a ceiling fan also. Slept soundly. Quite nice overall.

"Fantastic"
I am not in the habit of writing personal messages for travel (business or pleasure) that I undertake but in this case I am willing to make an exception. I travelled with my family of 4 to Zanzibar staying at the Neptune resort from July 10 – 23 this year. We encountered some problems in the first few days, specifically, with the hot water provision and so I raised my concerns. We spoke to the General Manager about our concerns. His sense of duty and care towards guests was immediately apparent and he proceeded to resolve matters resulting not only in our complete satisfaction but, in fact, exceeding our expectations of customer service for any top hotel internationally. I am sure his example is one of the primary reasons why the service and pleasantness of the staff generally at the resort is so fantastic.

"Exquisite location,food,service and villas. "
Splendid in every sense. Cannot fault. Compares very positively to top star world class hotels/residences. We spent four excellent days. Faultless. After leaving the hotel and arriving in Dar es Salam we realised we left a pair of reading glasses. The hotel located these and personally delivered the glasses by ferry in Dar!
