Amazing stay at a beautiful resort. The vistas of the nearby palace ruins are stunning and the pool areas open and comfortable. The food in the restaurant is delicious and I highly recommend the dinner set menus. If you visit on a Friday evening, the Tanzanian meal is incredible. Staff is friendly and attentive. The only drawback is the boat maintenance going on in the bay below and adjacent to the resort, which draws local labourers. The bay is loud and full of rubbish so keep your eyes to the sea, which has a killer sunset! I would definitely return.

Everything was spectacular, the workers are so friendly and kind. Probably the best guest service I’ve ever experienced, they were very helpful and understanding. The rooms were nice not that big and not that small, I also liked that they do housekeeping service twice a day. The food was delicious and the portions were good for one person, I don’t know why most reviews say that portions were small! They weren’t small at all. But to be fair prices of drinks and food were not cheap, they were average. Thank you for everything i had an amazing stay and definitely an unforgettable memory.

I want to take this moment to thank the entire staff at Zanzibar Palace Ruins, from the security team up to General Manager Jagath Meyn. Ana & I have stayed in many 5 & 7-stars hotels around the world. Whenever we take a vacation, we carefully review and measure the level of customer services, as we use this time to really catch up in our day-to-day life goals and also work on pending projects. Without any doubt, this is one of the best resorts we have stayed in a long time based on theoverall level of customer service. Upon arrival we were immediately & warmly welcomed by the staff and general manager JM, and we were upgraded to PREMIUM ROOM w/ Oceanfront. The staff was extremely friendly, the restaurant very flexible (appreciate this!) and we can’t forget to mention our morning bartender-guy “ REMMY D.” His morning smile and level of positive energy are out of this world! Every morning we looked forward to seeing him and suck all the energy that we need for the rest of the day. He’s definitely a character for any movie. We love him! – He’s a keeper and deserves the HIGHEST level of recommendation. But again, the entire staff there had such a warm personality and they were always highly motivated & willing to help whenever we needed. We felt we were the only ones there – actually we felt like ROYALS! We truly enjoyed how well you guys kept the property, and walking through the scenery of the resort was beautiful and it was a relief to walk in such a quiet and pea

We absolutely love the layout and beauty of the grounds, room and views. Our masseuse was top notch and made us feel reborn. The food was very tasty, but the meat tends to be a bit more well done than you order it. All of the staff gave us top notch treatment. There were just a few detractors we could mention among the scores of great experiences. We found insect bites about 5 days into our stay. They would magically pop up each remaining morning. The closest I could equate them to is flea bites. She got way more bites than I did. They didn’t itch much but they were annoying all the same. Also the billiard table was in the worst shape I’ve ever seen. It should be replaced or removed. Lastly, the resort based car service was way too expensive. We used an independent taxi to get to the resort, and the in house service to return. The return trip was more than twice the price. There was also another patron who had a large amount of her money turn up missing. Hmm... Overall, we had an very good time. I recommend the place.
