We, an older couple, spent 4 days at Waikiki and mainly had a good time, with some frustrations. Positives: It is a beautiful place, with white sand and a swimmable beach. Great for kitesurfing, and lounging. The on-site tour guides are semi-independent but reliable and price-competitive. The facilities are very nice; great landscaping, comfortable restaurants, and nice, modern rooms. We...

The small hotel is located right at the beach (keep in mind that the water goes out and comes back. Many kitesurfer during the windy...

I chose this hotel based on the reviews of previous guest and for it's pricing, along with the fact that they provided a shuttle service. I went there with no specific expectations, but felt some fear on the transit (we took the ferry - avoid it if at all possible!!!!) saving the money was not worth it - fly if...

If you're looking for peace and quiet without the inflated budget then I'd highly recommend this little gem. It's run by an Italian couple and it has lots of their influences whilst keeping with the local traditions. The rooms are conveniently located a few steps from the white sandy beach and the waves are audible from your huts which will...

I needed a place for my annual retreat and this was it, i loved pretty much everything but the breakfast which i described as horrible.The air conditioning was perfect(Zanzibar is very hot!) and there was hot water from the shower. The grounds were kept clean and it was perfect for my purpose and the price was right!
