Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our time at this hotel was amazing. The room is very comfortable, the food delicious and the massage at the spa perfect. Also it was our honey moon and they give us special treats (dinner on the beach, discount for the spa). We felt very well taking care of!

Good: customer service and the food. Bad : power outages and shower The resort had some power outages which turned off the AC at n the middle of the night which also affected my cpap machine working. They have a generator but it kicks on after the island has a random shut off of the power so it affect everything. The shower, due to minimal power, didn’t have hot water about half the time we tried to shower and the water definitely calcified on the head so water went in every direction. The Fisherman restaurant was great as had ceviche and 1/2 a kilo of tiger prawns. Prices are extremely reasonable (in relation to US) and while the service is a bit slower than one in the US would expect, they are every attentive and due their best to help out and provide what lever is needed. The bars are interesting as they have a set menu but I helped them make a proper whisky sour and they were open to making drinks not on the menu. Highly recommend trying to have Emmanuel and Jeffrey make your drinks at the dolphin bar! They are at the pool bar. There is also a tiki hut bar that is right on the ocean and has amazing views while enjoying a drink. As it was low season, the place was almost empty but the customer service was still on point and great! Also got a massage and due to status, was able to get 15% off so booked a 90 minute massage and the masseuse was great!

The staff are so kind, and try to help you with anything. Moreover, there are a variety of food options and they all are very delicious. The beach is great for a swim because it’s all sand. Mr. James, Ms. Given, Mr. Samuel and Mr Martin are especially so kind, have positive energy and so helpful to make your experience at Zanzibar memorable.

Excellent hotel in one of the best beach's in Zanzibar. The hotel itself needs some updates regarding small works, but as I heard that will be done very soon. The workers there have always a smile on the face, nice words to say and they do all regarding clients satisfaction. The bedrooms are cleaned with passion and creativity. The gardens are well treated. The private beach is an very positive point. Of course I have to point two things that I'm sure that it could be mush better, the diversity of the buffets, it could have more variety day after day, and about the entertainment that was very poor, this week of course. But in general, the hotel was very good. My stay was for only 6 days, but definitely it was the perfect choice.

It was the first time for us in Zanzibar and se couldnt have been more taken cared of than the people at Nungwi beach resort. The hotel rooms are amazingly put together, clean and well renovated. The food is great and their restaurant called Fisherman’s has one of the best ceviches we’ve ever tasted. The beach, the aquamarine water and the hotel looks and is just as the pictures. We are def. coming back next winter! Love ❤️

What I can accept: slightly outdated hotel. Not as seen in photographs. Over priced for sure. Annoying: paying all inclusive for a hotel that advertised a restaurant that is not included. Then learning that some drinks are not also included. Not made clear before booking. My husband mentioned my birthday in the booking and they sent a cake the day after as if they forgot. Limited food options. Breakfast exactly the same every day. One poor man making eggs for the whole hotel. Unacceptable: being placed in a room with works being done around it when the hotel is half full. Being woken up at 8am with the noise. I asked if it would continue through out our stay. Woman was very dismissive and was Told someone was to get back to me. They never did. Attempted to chase again the next day.To have the reception not ever picking up the phone so I had to resort to emails. Appreciated offer facial to compensate. Face looks great. It's a shame I had to stop him from keep putting his hands down my shirt. Firstly man or woman, they should always ask before trying to massage my chest. I had to place my bad to stop him from going further and further. He apologised. But honestly I was just fed up and checked out Had spa services at the Z hotel. Much better experience. Won't be returning or recommending. Only reason you're getting a 2 is because staff in restaurant and bars are lovely.

Dear Kamilah, We appreciate you taking the time to review your experience with us and apologise for the shortcomings during your stay. We have discussed your comments with our staff and highlighted the actions taken by our team to rectify all of your concerns. We are not an all-inclusive resort; but, we do provide an all-inclusive package that is represented as such. If something is unclear, we are delighted to provide further information prior to booking, regardless of the booking technique used by the guest. Every booking platform allows guests to communicate with the property before, during, and after their booking. Birthday cake: We celebrate guests' birthdays by presenting them with a complimentary cake. The team members were waiting for you in the restaurant, but you did not arrive; Putting it in your room to melt did not feel right, but we apologise if that was not the best solution for you. Limited food options: our buffet meets the required standards and is built to serve many nationalities at once, our kitchen remains flexible to assist guests with special requirements, and the staff is there for assistance. Noise: Our team offered you a different room with a complimentary upgrade to the highest category, far from your original room, but according to our records, you declined due to personal safety concerns, even though guest relations informed you that our beach is private and under 24-hour security. We moved you to another room and ensured you were not disturbed. To minimise disturbance to our guests, maintenance work is done between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and the noise you heard before 10 a.m. came from the village behind the resort. Spa: Inappropriate behaviour in the spa is not acceptable at our resort and will be looked into carefully because there have never been any accusations of this kind and it should have been brought to the attention of our management right away. We consider customer feedback seriously and use it to make necessary improvements and atone for any mistakes we may have made, and our staff did a good job of addressing and resolving your concerns. Rest assured that we never wish for any of our guests to have a negative experience at our hotel. Please be aware that all of your areas of feedback have been thoroughly investigated and are being evaluated for analyzing and enhancement of our service quality. I appreciate you choosing to stay with us. Sincerely, Mary Deputy General Manager
