Small friendly resort very well run The pool area is really nice with a large pool, rooms are very spacious and spotlessly clean. As there is nothing much around the resort most people stayed on at nighr to eat and good was excellent. The best thing about the resort is the staff they are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble by the time you leave you feel like family.

I loved staying at Blue Moon Resort. However, I wish they had communicated that there is no beach at the resort. It would also be great to have a bigger menu.

Il meglio che si può avere in Zanzibar super
Siamo stati accolti da Marina ,molto gentile mi ha aiutato ad organizzare il compleanno di mia moglie in stile Africano ,anche il marito molto disponibile che ci ha serviti per ogni capriccio. Hotel bellissimo fatto con gusto moderno europeo con il paesaggio magnifico di Zanzibar,nel territorio ci sono scimmie e animali che rendono il tutto selvaggio e magnifico. Colazione per tutti i gusti con una buonissima varietà di frutta. Personale sempre sorridente e disponibile , sul loro ci sono varie attività dai quod alle barca a noleggio. Davvero molto consigliato
