The rooms are spacious, with excellent view of the beach. I would recommend guys friends and family to visit the place. The breast is good, offering a variety from the menu. The room service is prompt and answer to any request.

Having stayed in the resort for 5 night I can't hesitate to recommend the place ,when checking in we were welcomed by security guards and the front desk lady who were helpful despite the curfew regulations .The room was clean and sparkling as requested we had an extra bed for our daughter. Breakfast was ready by 8 in the morning the gentleman by the name Zuma who took care of us the whole stay was indeed helpful making sure our little daughter of 9months was taken care of The house attendant by the name Victor wanyama is indeed a professional our house was sparkling clean and all the amenities replenish Lastly the hotel manager was amazing down to earth and ready to assist where necessary my elder daughter was happy to celebrate her 9th birthday in Ziwa beach resort her friends were given special rate by the manager . Just to finish I have a lot I can say but All the good memories are in my heart I wish to recommend the resort and promise to come back again and have a long stay. to the management pass my special thanks to all the staff .see you soon and have merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.

We stayed at the Ziwa one night, there was nothing in the room, shower was terrible, there was no soap and bugs in the room. I would consider this a back packers spot, but definitely not a resort. When we checked in we were told that it decorated African style, meaning it looks like huts and animal prints around it. The mosquito nets were torn as well. I agree with these other people, nothing worked, poor service, and uncomfortable.
