Memorable holiday, the sort of tropical paradise of one' imaginary. The highlight of the place, however, was its people and the staff who work incessantly to make every aspect of the holiday perfect. From Alessia's wellbeing and entertainment programmes to Kahled's eagle eyes in all things food, to Michael's attentive management of the resort. The world is big and there...

The Dreams Of Zanzibar is excellent from every viewpoint. The service is outstanding, security high and relentless, the rooms are filled with small details that make a difference, the food is really delicious. Full marks to the entertainment and the outdoor pool. I recommend asking for an ocean view room, of course. I will stay there again for sure.

This hotel sits on a sensational site with spectacular well tended gardens rising up from one of the most striking tropical beaches one can imagine. The rooms are spacious and immaculately attended to and the facilities are extensive throughout. The secret that takes this place from great to exceptional though , is the quality of Management and Staff. The Resort...
