Stayed here with my wife and 2 teenage kids after a few days on safari in Tanzania. The location of the hotel is stunning - the photos really don't do it justice. The beach is very beautiful, and there are plenty of sun-loungers so no need to run down in the morning to reserve a seat. Sometimes the beach sellers...

We arrived here after a safari in Kenya. As we had experienced in Kenya the staff were most welcoming, even though it was 10p.m. The staff couldn't have been more attentive.

Stayed here for 5 nights and were a bit apprehensive when we were told we were in room 101. Actually I think it was the best one! As it was an individual thatched cottage, closest to the beach, swimming pool and restaurant. The beach was about 40ft from our little veranda area, with amazing views.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean, it is as the name suggests a little piece of paradise. From your arrival at Zanzibar Airport, the resort is a meandering 45 minute journey through un-spoilt scenery, passing typical African villages where the way of life has changed little for hundreds of years. At Ocean Paradise Resort Zanzibar, you will be greeted by a blaze of colour as you sweep down the imposing driveway, saluted by a Masai warrior as you pass through the entrance gate and be captivated as you arrive in reception and look out over the resort and the azure blue sea. Mature coconut palms swinging in the breeze, white sandy beach, beautiful landscaped gardens, traditional style round chalets with pitched makuti roof, a stunning waterfall feature and the largest swimming pool in Zanzibar are just some of the sights that await you. A big smile and the greeting of "Jambo" will be the first words you hear, as you begin to feel the warmth that the people of Zanzibar are famed for. ... more   less
