From 24th of August until 6th of September we spent with our both daughters two weeks im Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort. The initial uncertainty of what the vacation would bring was taken away from us at the latest when we arrived at the hotel. We have never been welcomed so warmly and delighted in any hotel. Even when we expressed the wish to change the room, all receptionists tried very hard to fulfill our request. Thanks to Muru we were able to change rooms immediately. When we walked through the complex after moving into our rooms, we were overwhelmed. So beautiful, the entire area, pool, hotel beach, the turquoise sea, everything really is the finest! Everywhere you were immediately greeted warmly with "jambo", "How are you"!! The warmth, the feeling of being wanted, was shown to us every day anew. All employees (gardeners, cleaning staff, waiters, barkeepers, reception, all workers ...) they all were very, very friendly, warm and courteous. Not to forget the massai security, which always gave us complete security and were always available for a conversation, help, and photos. It was very nice for us that all employees are very, very child-friendly, which our daughters really liked. All in all it was a very pleasant and wonderful vacation in this hotel. We really enjoyed it very much in the beautiful facility on this paradise island. Thank you everyone for this wonderful vacation, "hakuna matata" for all employees and staff is true. We hope and wish that this standard can be maintained, we really want to come again. Family from Austria!!

Thank you so much, not only for your lovely review but also for becoming such regular guests of Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort. It was a pleasure to meet you during this stay and I was so pleased to hear that our team continues to take such good care of our guests and in such individual ways. We love knowing that we provide an atmosphere in which our guests can relax and get away from the usual stresses of daily life and if providing food for your baby assists with that, I'm very glad they took the right steps.

The Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort is one of the most amazing place I've experienced in my entire life. A close friend of mine recommended this place to me telling how amazing his trip there was. I trusted him and I directly called the hotel to book a room. At this moment, I had the amazing pleasure to meet Muru, the Front Office Supervisor. Muru is an absolute delight ! Always smiling and helpful for anything we asked. We booked the Ocean Suite. A gigantic room with all you need inside to make your trip perfect. The view from the terrace was incredible, one of the best sunset I've had the chance to look at. My wife planned with Muru (Again) my birthday party ! They made a enormous cake for me and they brought it during dinner singing Happy Birthday in Swahili !!! All singing from their hearts like it was the birthday party of someone from their family ! THAT WAS INCREDIBLE ! Everything was great ! We stayed 5 nights at the hotel without leaving it (not a single time) ! Every breakfast, lunch and diner we had at the restaurants was amazing. Everyday, new options for the buffet, themed-diners (Tanzanian food, barbecue at the pool night...). Me and my wife really want to thank you all for what you did for us ! YOU ARE THE REASON WHY OUR HONEYMOON IS THE BEST EVER !! Special thank you to : Kim Elisabeth Muru (Of course) Amiri Emmanuel (restaurant bartender) Emmanuel (restaurant waiter) My brother Fally Ipupa (beach bartender) Mama (shop attendant) Mamaa (restaurant waitress) AND ALL OF YOU THAT MADE OUR TRIP UNFORGETTABLE ! WE LOVE YOU ALL <3 Khallid & Maïssa Les Amoureux Explorateurs

Great experience. The resort was lovely, service was amazing, food was good, rooms was super clean and amenities were amazing. If you’re going to go snorkeling, dont use beach boys, use a diving center. Would recommend Spanish divers.
