His wife / girlfriend (sorry not sure and forgot her name) is in charge of guest relations and walks around chatting to guests making sure you are taken...

This resort is quiet, very clean, with a friendly staff. And very affordable as well. When I arrived three days prior to my reserved dates, they were able to fit Mae in for two days and found a hotel nearby for the third night. They even provided transportation both to the hotel and back to the resort the next day....

If you're going to Zanzibar, I definitely recommend the south east coast and this is a great place to stay. They rooms are nice and the bathrooms are clean. The ac in the rooms works, and there are also little cottages for those who would like more room. There are two bars, one a jetti bar that hangs over the...

My Girlfriend and I went to the reef and Beach Resort from the 7th - 14th of January 2017 and had the best of times at the resort.

This place was complete paradise. The room, food, staff, their policies (paying staff well/covering their healthcare/paying a pension), everything was perfect. The only down side is it's a bit of an expensive taxi ride from the airport on the other side of the island. It cost us about $65 each way. However, the hotel did arrange us a slightly cheaper...

So you pay only 32.50$ one way, much better and cheaper. please look your pictures back and have good memories about Zanzibar and our Resort. thanks, Bert
