This hotel makes you feel at home with it's always smiling and very helpful stuff, super sweet Maasai guards and it's clean and African style rooms.
The animation team was the best and the family game we played was one of a kind experience (highly recommended if you get the chance to play it).
The beach was veeeeeery nice as well as the many pools and the bars.

Thank you Royal for the amazing days spent there.
Hope to come back to you again.

We had a wonderfully large room overlooking pool and sea. The staff couldn't do enough to ensure we had every need catered for. New year's eve was exceptional - wonderful food, lobster, prawns, sushi etc. The pools are outstanding and right on the beach. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and the fully inclusive option would be the best choice. I would like to have seen a little more hygiene shown at the buffets e.g.. insisting people wear disposable gloves whilst dishing food and insisting on sanitizing hands each time on entry to buffet tables.

Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort is a wonderful place with extremely friendly people making your stay6an enjoyable one.
Room are beautiful and spacious, food selection wonderful, the complex setting (huge pools with probably the most beautiful beach on the island) is stunning with breathtaking sunsets to watch before dinner.
We loved every second of it and would recommend to anybody
Thank you for wonderful memories....

Room tip: Location with the beach that doesn't 'get lost' withe the tide, which is rare on the island.

Most pictures make a place look way better than it ever is in reality. Well this time the resort was even more spectacular! The pools were stunning, the perfect white sandy beach was amazing and our rooms were so fancy.
Make sure you bring your goggles & snorkel because you can snorkel right in front of the hotel and the visibility is good.
Our rooms were upgraded and they were enormous with luxurious bathrooms and lovely white crisp linen.
After reading some bad reviews on food & wifi I had mailed the GM Kim who assured me she had dealt with these issues. Well done Kim & staff, your food was delicious and your staff so kind and hospitable. And thanks for our gorgeous rooms!
My only complaint were the hawkers on the beach and the ridiculous amount of litter I was constantly picking up.
Use your security guys who stand around all day to pick up plastic bottles and ensure guests are not harassed. They did leave us alone after several days of No thank you.
Otherwise an AMAZING holiday!

Room tip: Choose higher up and closer to the beach if possible.

Dear Mel,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort,

We're so thrilled that you had an amazing holiday , even more so that you'd worried about a few things and found they'd been addressed. Our rooms really are special and the bathrooms are wonderful.

I'm also sorry about the hawkers on the beach. We continue to try to work with them to stop them from unwanted behavior but as it's a public beach, our advice is not always taken well.

Thank you once again for choosing Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort for your stay in Nungwi, we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind regards,

Kim Elizabeth Bird
