Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I worked remotely from the Zanzibar Queen for three weeks, and it was wonderful. The staff is top notch, managament/front desk/housekeeping/restaurant staff/kitchen staff/security/spa staff were all friendly and helpful!!! The entertainment and yoga on site were nice additions, and really made my stay enjoyable. The room was quiet and well appointed. Seems like it was recently refreshed. The food at the restaurant was really good, and the options at the included breakfast were tasty and diverse, and allowed a really nice way to start the day.

Cast away experience
This hotel is amazing, the service is really good, the view from the rooms is awesome. We liked everything about it, location, service, food, friendly staff, the only small thing that is probably missing is that there aren't a lot of dining options around it, but it is definitely a perfect place for people who are seeking for a stay with a peace of mind, it is really a quiet place to stay in far from the noisy touristic areas.

Free bikes to use was a nice bonus. Staff was friendly. Place attracts older generation of guests so if you want to be with younger crowd this hotel was full of geriatrics.
