  • 8.0.Very good

    The location on a very long and clean beach is very nice, food is quite good and staff very helpful. The TV (for films only )did not work and they came to replace it with another TV to view netflix. they do always have fresh water available, which is great on a sunny day. The room we had was very nice with view on the pool and the ocean. We will come back.

    Beautiful beachfront hotel

    This place is a true haven of peace! Upon checking in, we were upgraded to a beautiful 3 bedroom villa, and what a lovely surprise! The villa shared a pool with a second villa, but it felt as if it was ours. The villa offers plenty of space. Kitchen is fully equipped. Rooms are all spacious. Master bedroom on the upper floor had a balcony with an amazing view of the sea and pool! Couldn't get enough of it! The beach is right in front of the villa. During low tide, you can walk far and meet some of the local people collecting seaweed. At high tide, it's perfect for swimming. The hotel has 3 different grounds, we were in Bahani, about 5 minutes walk from the main hotel where you'll find the restaurant. We had dinner a few times, the catch of the day was always delicious and we were never disappointed. Breakfast is served there as well. Food was good but I would suggest serving brewed coffee or americano for free and maybe adding some jam. But the guacamole was delicious and the fresh fruits as well! Kudos to the team who was wonderful! Gillian, David, Frank, Ernest, Christina and the rest, you guys did an amazing job!

    We stayed in the south villa and shared our pool with only one other villa and this was very nice. The breakfast was nice and had a good variety. The walk to the restaurant may be a challenge for some guests. We tried the food one other time and it was poor. The service was also lacking because the staff rarely came to our table or forgot to bring things we had asked for. The cleaning and reception staff were great. Overall a very pleasant place.

    We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment in the Kushini building. It was very large and spacious and very clean. Food at the restaurant was good. Staff were friendly and accommodated our late check out since our flight wasn’t until later in the day.

    It is a very new building (the Kusini property apartments) thus very nice to stay in.

    Best place at Zanzibar east coast

    Amazing place to stay in Zanzibar. One of the few places the pics are not doing justice - place is even more beautiful in real life. Pros: amazing staff - very professional and friendly. David especially was very helpful attending to all of our needs. The hotel is very intimate (only a few on each of the three complex), right on the beach and designed tastefully. Close to many nice local restaurants (we really liked Fadhil). Cons: AC is not so great, the hotel prices for attraction and taxis are very high. They charge 95 USD for return taxi from the airport, while I easily managed to book a private luxury taxi for just 50 USD.

    From check in to check out, staying at Jambiani Villas was amazing! I stayed in the Kaskazini grouping which was one of the newer groupings of villas. I had a fully equipped kitchen (which I barely used but seemed great). AC and lots of fans kept me nice and cool when it got hot, and the pool / waking up to the sound of the ocean on my doorstep was even better. The staff were fantastic... respectful, welcoming, and genuinely seemed to care about not only your stay, but you as a person. Had a lovely stay, wish it could be longer, and would definitely recommend a stay here!

    Everything about this stay was good. We only had a few things which we would have liked to change. The food was delicious unfortunately the portions were small and in order to make it a full meal you had to have a starter. Once you did this the bill started to climb rapidly and the cost become too much. We ate there a few times but tended to shop around more. Another point of concern and to be honest a real disappointment was the "others" who occupied the space. I dont mean the other people in the villas but the resort behind us Green Z. I checked the cost and it was less than half what we paid foe the same nights yet they ate free breakfast with us, their kids ran around the same resort and used the pool, and the parents and kids took up all the lounge chairs. Several days we never got anywhere to relax in the sun because all the chairs were in use and over half were from these 'others". It got to the point I had to go out at 8am and put towels down on chairs for us to have a place to relax. I dont think it's fair to pay so much and have to share with others paying half the price with all the same privileges or even getting the things I assumed came with our rental. Overall service was fantastic, staff and management were wonderful! Just 2 minor points would have really made this stay an eleven.
