The hotel is modern with many services. The staff are professional and friendly. The rooms are modern, clean. The breakfast does not have varieties of food. For lovers of english breakfast it is okay, but I did not see local Zanzibarian breakfast, such as Urojo and yams, which were served in the breakfast some years back.

I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel. Its as advertised, a five star hotel with a keen eye to the environment. The place is big and spacious with a lot of amenities. Highlight of the place are the staff. They are so welcoming and hospitable, ready to help and provide additional information including recommendations on how to make the most of your visit to the Tanzanian archipelago. I wouldn't want to go to each minute detail but in general the rooms are neat, modern and not far off the different places in the premises. If you are super lazy and want to really relax, they have electric Karts that are available on call. They have watersports such as jetski, kayaking, boat rides (sunset rides), snorkeling etc...oh the kayakinh and lessons comes with the booking, so no extra cost. I got an ocean facing room, guess most are and could see the harbour, the famous prison island and people going on about their businesses in the ocean. At night would watch the calm sea, harbour lights and cargo vessels waiting to dock. The sea breeze made sitting and admittingly sleeping on the balcony enjoyable and relaxing. I will definitely be going back there...so should you..

Amazing property. Crows wake up early. Great Service. The gym seemed a bit old for such a young property. The property is beautiful but there is not much else to look forward too. The amenities are few however the service is outstanding.

Excellent Five star Hotel with a very helpful space.The areas are well organized and clean clean,it was my second time of visit for a conference meeting,The conference Room are extremely fantastic I never see it before I have enjoyed very nice experience with my group partners. The team are extremely helpful all the time and there going extra mile to make sure things happen quick and on time. The staff from the Restaurant and Banquet makes you feel VIP treated or special with I see they treat everyone equal.this is another new thing which I have enjoyed from the service team. I meet with the food and beverage manager Mr.Dickson he is the best,of the best.i see him all the time around and assist the team. The general manager from south Africa mr.riaan he is another I never see in my life the manager he is starving the guest in the restaurant with a very happy face with his team. The food this time was extremely excellent with a Zanzibar taste, spicy,indian flavor etc I recommend everyone to go Hotel Verde Zanzibar for a very good service for conference meeting and nice Holliday,the place is class. I will definitely come back with my family

I had high expectations based on the reviews. But seemed they were fully booked and they 'dumped' me into one of their back rooms (26), near the road that was not worth that premium price. The room was clean and spacious but very basic and stuffy with tiny bathroom similar to that of a 3 star, absolutely no hint of luxury and no value for the high cost charged . Breakfast wasn't too appetising either.limited selection that included dry chicken wings. Had to check out prematurely after one night out of dissatisfaction.
