Very clean friendly staff. Goes extra mile to help as it was hard to find taxis. Longing security guard and Joseph the bar attendant was extremely helpful. Walking tour is amazing and venue was great. Food was great all meals.

Disappointing stay at Royal Zanzibar Hotel
Did not meet our expectation and was definitely not 5 star hotel. One of the swimming pools was empty and out of service, the quality of all inclusive food and drinks were poor. It was pot luck whether the tables in the restaurant were cleaned and adequately laid, we had to ask for cutlery, napkins etc. Many of the restaurant staff were trainees and had very little leadership/instruction from more senior colleagues. We requested a hotel transfer to the airport and were initially quoted 80USD, the next day when we actually booked we were asked for 95USD, we questioned the difference and were told that this was because it was a luxury car that belonged to the hotel, we duly paid this amount but the following day we were collected by a private car, not in good condition, almost ran out of fuel twice on the way to the airport. This was not a hotel car so we were grossly overcharged. A private car would have cost us 40-50 USD. We have stayed in other 5 star hotels In this location and sadly the Royal Zanzibar is not up to their standard. I would rate this hotel At 4 star.

Absolutely stunning property. When the gates open, you truly feel royal. Everything is very well maintained, and all staff members — from receptionists, gardeners, housekeeping, beach boys — were so kind and cheerful. The pools were amazing! It seems like most of the people hang out at the infinity pool and beach area, which left a lot of the other pools open. All of the food at the restaurant was delicious — they had dozens of options suited for any preference.
