Me and my daughter stayed 3 nights in this wonderful place on the white beach. Very quiet place and only adults at that time. clean rooms and very friendly people working there. Security was fine. the restaurant was overlooking the sea.

We were looking for a beak in the sun with good snorkelling and plenty of things to do (if we wished). The Z hotel combines service, excellent position with superb comfort. The room was outstanding and all the facilities were brilliant. The best thing however is its position, breathtaking views from the hotel onto the white sand and brilliant blue...

We stayed there in a part of our honeymoon in August 2012. The hotel is very nice, clean rooms, beautiful restaurants and very good food, Very good service, the pool is great. The only disappointment we had was not the hotel's fault, but with Zanzibar in general. It is very overpriced, all the activities are expensive, and everybody wants just...

We had the best time at the Z Hotel in Zanzibar! We stayed in the cottage. The room and views were absolutely breathtaking!!! We felt like we were in paradise. The food was great, the pool was nice, and the beach was good. We loved every minute of it! I would go back in a heartbeat, if I could!

This hotel was a little piece of paradise! The water was warm and a beautiful blue. We were in the Deluxe Sea View rooms which were outstanding! I would highly recommend these rooms if you go to this hotel! Very spacious and comfortable and right on the water! Beautiful!

If you want a boutique hotel experience that is so close to the beach you have to raise your voice to be heard over the waves, book this hotel. If you can afford it, ask for a cottage room. It is a two story room perched over the ocean. Spectacular view. Negatives: the a/c unit in the bedroom was noisy...
