Nice hotel!!

Posted Aug 3, 2015
Pros: All the stuffs are friendly. The food is good. We enjoyed the beach very much!!
Cons: It would be better if there are more water activities to be provided by the hotel.
Location: a bid too far from the airport (1 hour by car), but acceptable.
Our family (with 2 children) enjoyed very much for staying at the hotel & Zanzibar! The beach (sea water) is nice & very close from the hotel room. We stayed 5nights at the hotel, but we enjoyed food, pool, beach, etc. The water near the hotel is so clean that it is just like Moldiv!!

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your wonderful feedback on your families recent stay in our beautiful resort. As a family friendly resort, I am delighted you all enjoyed yourselves as well as our food offerings, swimming pool and our private beach. We are very lucky with our location as our Indian Ocean Sea is very clean as you shared. I am also grateful for your positive comments on our staff service. I am pleased to confirm that we are in the process of upgrading our water sports activities for our guests. Being in the northern area of the island provides many positives especially the amazing sunsets, unfortunately that means we are a little further distance away from the Airport but as you stated, this is acceptable. We all hope you will return again in the near future. Kind regards Andrew General Manager

Swimming Pool is very large but is salt water

Fantastic experience

Posted Mar 24, 2014
Highly recommend this hotel. The staff is extremely friendly, always smiling and ready to help in any way. The hotel itself is located on idyllic stretch of white sandy beach an clear turquoise waters. The food is excellent and varied so you'll always find something to your taste. The rooms were clean and all of them facing the sea, with direct views to wonderful sunsets. This is the stuff of dreams. You won' be disappointed.

Perfect for beach holidays

Posted Feb 4, 2014
Pros: Gardens are terrific, territory is huge and well-managed, hotel staff is friendly and helpful
Location: Diving, snorkeling and reading book under the palm tree with a cocktail bar handy -)
We booked suite for an overnight. If compared to their regular room (we've stayed in this hotel before) - for substantially more money you receive kitchen and a sitting room. The only difference between different type of rooms is a size. Nothing more. So the suite didn't meet the expectations. The picture of the suite shows proper bath - there is none, only walk-in shower. Taking into account hotel price policy - there are far better options available in surrounding area for these money

Lovely honeymoon resort

Posted Jan 19, 2014
Pros: A generous all inclusive option. Great staff: Club Villa (423) butlers, serving staff Spa Sumptuous food Beautiful gardens Honeymoon specials
Cons: The television in the room had a loose connection and had a very unstable picture. Luckily, television was the least of our interests on our honeymoon
Location: Fantastic beach walks on fine sands escorted by intricate coral bank, with rhythmic & confident waves in clear blue water Spice tour Stone town
We loved everything about the resort from the warm welcome at the airport to the well arranged rooms, to the hospitable staff, the well manicured gardens the well maintained beaches, the sumptuous meals, the amazing spa treatments and all this in one inclusive package! We would definitely recommend it!

The Best in Zanzibar right on the beach

Posted Dec 19, 2013
From the moment we arrived, it was superb. Caring staff took great care of us. The garden was so beautiful, and the pool and the beach -- ahhhh, I still miss it. We were so glad that we chose this place after visiting Stone town and hearing from others who stayed on the east coast. I made wonderful friends we stay in touch with. The food and drinks were always available, although some of the foods were reused in different menus. I didn't mind terribly since foods weren't wasted. I highly recommend the La Gemma dell'est.

Paradijs!

Posted Dec 19, 2013 on Hotels
Wij verbleven hier een weekje in december. Personeel en management is uiterst klantvriendelijk en geven een uitstekende service. Bij een probleem zullen zij dit direct oplossen. Het eten was top. Buffet met dagelijks verse producten en steeds iets anders. Mooie verzorgde kamers. Heel hygienisch. Prachtig zicht vanop het strand In 1 woord; PARADIJS! Wij komen absoluut zeker terug naar Zanzibar. En al zeker naar dit hote
