Well organised, simple beach holiday. Service good and facility delivers what they say. It's a well run outfit. Food good, but not great. The booze they give you is clearly to maximise profit. The Wine is simply not good enough. Their SPA is WAY WAY overpriced.

This is a lovely hotel. Very friendly with good service and wonderful surroundings. It's easy to go on day trips if you want to venture from your all inclusive paradise. The hotel organises good (quite pricey) trips. The 'beach boys' are keen to do so as well. We went snorkelling and to the Jozani Forest and to see the dolphins...

We travel a lot around the world - mostly tropical destinations - and have been to many good hotels but Neptune Pwani is definitely one of the best in terms of service. In bars in restaurants you didn't even need to ask - waiters anticipated your wishes, remembered your habits and were always around when you needed them. They were...

Went as a large group in mid June. Everything was fantastic, the beach and sea were stunning (though no snorkelling here - get a boat trip to the reef for this), lovely large room with large balcony near the smaller pool, exceptionally clean and comfortable, great facilities and the best all inclusive selection of food I've ever had, especially the...

We went there the last days of our honeymoon after being in Kenya. The service at the reception from the beginning was not very polite, but we still were on a good mood. The staff from the rest of the hotel is very polite and we were enjoying our stay there (3 days). The problems started the day prior to...

I have just returned from Zanzibar and although I am not a normal review writer I felt it was time I was after my visit to this hotel. There were many many good reasons for staying here and of course you have to take a couple of days to get into the "Poly-Poly" routine that is Zanzibar. It is not...
