It was grossly overpriced at $140 a night, terrible food and they couldnt even manage the concept of a cold beer. The rooms were basically a glorified shack with nothing except a bed and ceiling fan which was ineffective with an ensuite bathroom.there wasnt even a small fridge to keep water (l requested one but this was ignored) so you...

Super Friendly staff, proactive is making suggestions, not only this but the presents of the staff made you felt more than welcomed, with a sprinkle of humor on every turn, massage though Seam expensive but not the beer!. Highly recommend You take USD with You everywhere, especially the airport Awesome

When we went to Zanzibar for a little vacation we were looking for affordable places to stay at and we found this gem that luckely wasn't fully booked.

We stayed here for 3 nights (only 1 was planned) and it was just great. The people are just friendly and made our stay very pleasant. It was great to talk to the staff and get informed about anything we need to know in a very polied and discrete way. Thanks a lot for the extraordinary hospitality.

Today's our last of three wonderful days at the Tanzanite Beach Resort in Nungwi. We wish we could stay longer as it's the perfect place if you are looking for very clean and comfortable rooms, really friendly and helpful staff, lots of possibilities to relax (green garden, pool, hammocks and couches, billard table, bonfire) and a zanzibar-typical white sand beach...

Wonderful staff, very hospitable and nice. Loved the cuisine as well (I'm a vegan). Those in love with the seafood will enjoy it to the fullest. Nice bungalows in ethnic style, big beds with mosquito nets. In the evening, you can sit by the fire and enjoy the whisper of the ocean. Very quiet place. Literally empty beach with white...
