    Everything was great, people, food, beach, trips, hotel, room, service. Everybody was nice and helpful. We do recommend Dream of Zanzibar, no complaining. We are also thinking to come back again. Great holiday and relax.

    Should change linen more often. Very hard beds. Cleaners left doors unlocked when they turn down the room at nights. But great service and friendly staff. Should let breakfast run until a little later in the morning.
