We had a really wonderful stay here - beautiful garden and pool/beach area. Super friendly staff but prices feel more like Europe/US (e.g. 5 USD for four slices of pineapple). When we arrived we were almost alone in the hotel which made our stay even better!

Colleen, definitively yes. The Zanzibari can offer you everything you are looking for, a second floor room with an ocean view, although the rooms are not in the front, you can still see the ocean no more than a 100 ft away. Just make sure you let them know when you make your reservations. The hotel is great, the accomodations are top class and their staff makes everything in their reah to make you feel comfortable and enjoy your stay, we had a wonderful time with them and some of our best memories from our visit to Zanzibar, they can also arrange tours and visit to local attractions. Enjoy it

There is a change in tide about every 6 hours whereby you'll experience high tide and low tide. In December, there are usually strong winds as compared to mid-year. Swimming and other beach activities will be determined by this.

Beautiful beach. At low tide you can walk out and see star fish, sea urchins, crabs etc. Not sure about the weather in April as we went in November. It was hot, even on cloudy days but the cloud didn't last long. Also the Indian Ocean was unbelievably warm - beautiful. Hope this is of some help to you.

Yes we do accept TZS and USD, but drinks are normally put on your bill to pay at the end of your stay, when you can pay by card.

"Second floor rooms have a very nice view across the water."
"The Frangipane Villas are simply to die for!"
"Sea view with breeze off the ocean is probably best"
"Frangipani Villa has just one room."
