I stayed here for a week the beginning of April. Me and my friend celebrated our birthdays here. The drive from the airport to the hotel is about 1hour maybe a little bit over and its not the most scenic route, but don't be alarmed, as its amazing once there. The taxi from airport to hotel was 65 USD. On...

We stayed at this hotel on our way back from safari in Tanzania for 3 days it was a delight. Our room was on the ground floor just a few feet from the gorgeous beach. They have several restaurants on the beach and you can actually sit at a table on the beach to dine. The only downside was that...

This was my second stay at the hotel and it is unlikely to be the last, I really enjoy Zanzibar and that hotel is just perfect. It is close to the yoga place where I practice when I go there, it is luxurious but not in your face, it is friendly and classy at the same time. The rooms are...

Super nice hotel and very friendly and service minded staff. We really recommend this hotel and place. It is situated right at the beach which is a great white super soft beach. The view from the roof top bar is spectacular over the Indian ocean.

We really enjoyed our stay at Z Hotel - amazing location right on the beach (which is by far one of the better beaches for swimming due to minimal tidal changes). The pool area is very relaxing, yet offers a great vibe at the same time. Super friendly and helpful staff. A variety of restaurants to choose from (all within...

The Z Hotel is the most unbelievable hotel. This was our second stay. From the moment you drive through the gates of the Z Hotel you feel relaxed. From the greeting in reception- to the exquisite pool- everything is perfect. Nothing is too much of an effort at the Z Hotel and all the staff are exceptional. It is truly...

The hotel is right on the beach and this was the only place during my travels in Zanzibar where you can actually walk in to the ocean and swim. Hotel managers are very laid back yet proffesional. Ideal spot for chilling in the small , climatic hotel with unique charisma. Good value for your money.
