Average resort stay.
I stayed in Tanzanite beach resort for 3 night. Last part of the drive to the hotel is on a gravel road that is very bumpy. Free massage road, they call it. It was a comfortable stay. Room is spatious and clean. Bed was comfy. Bathroom was alright. The water pressure isn't great! The fridge was not working. Staff were all friendly. Some don't understand English that well. The service at the restaurant was terrible. You do wait a long time for your food and drinks. Breakfast was nothing fancy at all. They can change it up a bit. The luch and dinner that i had at the hotel was not bad. They can however change their menu up a bit. Do check the tides as the hotel is right on the beach and with high tide you can't walk into the busier part of nungwi via the beach. Also take water shoes as you want swim infront of the hotel without them. Don't expect much from your stay though.

Not so great
We were excited about zanzibar after climbing kilimanjaro. Things went wrong right at the start. Our hotel pick up was not at the airport. We were forced to deal with angry porters at the airport fighting over business jacking pricing up on us. The cab ride to the hotel was terrible and he purposely hit every single bump and was angry as we refused to pay his jacked price. When we arrived at the hotel we questioned why no pick up at the airport and never received an answer. The room was ok. The area within the resort was ok but outside of their walls it was awful. It may have been my perception but they don't care for Americans. We were always asked where we were from with big smiles and they would try to guess... when I said usa they frowned. We opted after to say Canadian and were met with help and big smiles.

Great Hotel, maybe a 15 minute walk to town
This is a great hotel with nice staff, it is very calm and relaxing. If you are looking for a party atmosphere I'd look elsewhere. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to town and a 5 minute walk to the beach. The hotel is on the water but it is rocky right where the hotel is. Great pool, great staff, very relaxing and beautiful location.

Nice place for a great value!
Well, what can say? Despite all reviews about this facility on various sites, I can certanly say the following fact about this hotel: so they don't have a sandy beach, true, and it's pretty far away from Nungwi beach, but these facts are known, so if anybody books ahead without checking first, then please don't complain after. Otherwise, the place is simply fantastic! I guess it was recenly remodeled, thus we had a cheaper room it had AC and ceiling mounted fan, and the room was nice and large, and as I saw every room has AC. Cleaning in the room was on a daily basis, on the whole premises staff gave an outstanding attention for the cleanliness of the resort. The food was just great, maybe a little bit pricy, but really nothing to complain about! The staff, especially the waitresses in the restaurant were very polite, and their did their best to give us a fantastic experience. Overall, despite the cons, this place is a great pick for couples, for anybody who just wants to spend some quality time for a great price!

We had an okay stay at Tanzanite beach resort but there were a lot of downsides. First the WIFI!!!!!! You do not have wifi in the bedrooms & if you're lucky enough to catch the wifi, it's extremely slow, we had to go in the lobby to stay in touch with our loved ones! We told the staff about issue, they were well aware of it and did not do a THING. Second, the bathroom sink. Washing your hands is almost an extreme sport because as soon as you turn on water, it splashes outside of the sink. Third, the shower. We almost had a flood after every shower we took because the water would not drain out. They did not do a thing about this issue.
