What is advertised online is not what you get. My partner have to work remotely while we travel and that is why we booked Reeff and Beach resort as they advertise wifi throughout the entire resort which is not the case You also have to pay a deposit for the beach towels and safety deposit box which should be factored into your room rate. Buffer dinner: really limited options with only a coffee option after dinner , no dessert. The staff also take your plates away after you barely finished your food and don't even asked if you want to order another drink. Gym: exceptionally poor most equipment is broken. Rooms are ok but there is no cupboard to pack anything away. Worst resort i have ever been to!

What a wonderful experience. Starting with our tour guide, Friday, from Suntours that fetched us from the airport. He is very well informed and also gave handy tips on sites to visit and even arranged for our COVID tests to be done. His communication was excellent. The resort was just as it looked on the photo's. It was good idea to take the all inclusive offer. Rooms were serviced twice a day, with towels and linen changed daily. The food was delicious.

We're just back from Reef & Beach Resort Jambiani. The "all inclusive" offer as for the bars is quite poor. Just one beer offered for free and it doesn't even taste like a beer. All other local beers are offered for $3 for a small bottle. It's the same with other drinks. The location of the hotel is perfect. Long walks into the ocean during the low tide are incredible. The staff is nice and helpful. But the absolute winner is the SPA with all the offered massages ! We recommmend the place.

I absolutely loved this Resort! My transportation arrived promptly upon arrival to the Zanzibar airport. I arrived before check in time, was offered breakfast then my sea front beach bungalow was ready for me to enjoy. My bungalow was comfortable and well decorated. The view from my porch was spectacular! The property was very well maintained, the food was plentiful and delicious! The drinks weren't as strong as I'm used to; however, I purchased the all inclusive option so I was able to drink as much as I wanted. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I felt very safe being there alone and going on the resort sponsored excursions. Every evening there were little towel animals on my bed which was awesome! I was a tiny bit skeptical about booking when I read complaints about the food, but after being there I'm not sure why there are complaints. There were several options to choose from for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The omelet and pasta stations were amazing. They even offered fire grilled pizza at the bar area a few evenings. Oh I almost forgot there was entertainment on the property in the evenings and a Beach party off the property with transportation provided. Very nice place to stay especially if you are a woman traveling solo! I will definitely be returning!!
