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.

The hotel is beautifully decorated, it’s very secluded and away from the busy, touristy areas. The rooms are spacious, cleaned everyday with a change of towels, our jacuzzi malfunctioned a few times but it was always quickly resolved!

We went for the all inclusive option, the main buffet restaurant was great, the food was always delicious and quite a lot of things to choose from. We dined at the African restaurant one night, the main courses were great but the starters and desserts not so much so we haven’t booked again. We also booked for the Japanese restaurant although about 15 minutes before our booking we were told that it’s actually closed on Mondays and they didn’t know why hasn’t anyone told us that at the time we were making the booking. So we didn’t actually get to try it but it wasn’t a big deal, mistakes happen and we were quite happy to eat at the buffet :D

The staff at the main pool are amazing! Special thanks to Isaya for organising pool volleyball everyday and always chatting to everyone, very nice guy! All the bartenders are great too especially Hassan and Jamal.

The only thing that irritated us quite a few times is that even though all the prices are in USD, every single time when we wanted to pay for something they’d say that they haven’t got any change, so then we’d say that we’re not interested anymore and all of a sudden they had the change?? Very strange, seemed to us like they were trying to make some extra money hoping that the guests wouldn’t want their change back. Not very 5 star ;)

But overall it was a great stay and we do hope to be back one day. Hakuna matata!!

I spent one night in Kwanza and highly recommend you to stay too.

Me and my friend were the first Korean to visit this place since its newly opened few months ago.

I stayed as a premium all inclusive package. So we could choose out of three restaurants they have, Japanese, African cuisines and international buffet and all our beverages were free including alcohols.

But for dinner you have to make reservation a day in advance for Japanese and african restaurants(and they also open one at a day for now).
But Cralessa helped us squeezed in! Thanks to her, we had opportunity to enjoy one of the best fresh Japanese food in Africa!

They also provide free Yoga class with instructor starting from October (thats what i heard), so would be best if i could do some yoga next time.

They have multiple pools, bars, and restaurants so one night was not enough to seize the most!
And the staffs are all friendly and nice too.

Had an amazing relaxing time here in Kwanza and really wanna come back for longer periods next time!

I have just finished my weeks holiday in Zanzibar. I highly recommend this hotel. The service is at a very high level and always smiling, everywhere is clean, the food is delicious - everyone will find something for themselves because there is a large selection. The selection of drinks is very wide, and the staff will be happy to make whatever you want to drink beyond the menu. The barman Jamal is the best and makes the best mohitos in the whole world, and I've had a lot of them. Additionally, there are many attractions such as yoga and volleyball - very nice.

It was a good start to the trip when we arrived and were well received by the front desk staff and rest of the onground staff who were hospitable. Our stay was for 3 nights and it was upon our last night that my small kids (2yrs & 5yrs) and nanny were watching TV in the room and heard a loud bang that terrified them thinking it could have been a bomb or something terrible crashing from the roof. They ran outside for safety and to see if other guests were outside. Nobody else was outside so they came back inside after seeing no commotion from outside. Minutes later, our nanny opens the door to the bathroom only to find glass shattered everywhere. It was the shower door that had fallen and smashed into pieces. The shower door is approximately 7 foot in height and 4/5 feet wide. We were given another room as they cleaned up our previous room. We were extremely dissapointed at the way the General Manager, Ajay treated us as he never came to check if my family was okay, never apologized for the incident and instead demanded for us to pay for the damage. We refused to pay because we were not at fault. We were glad that our family was safe and would have let go of the incident but it was the way that the General Manager, Ajay spoke and treated us that showed he neither cared of our safety nor that our experience at the hotel mattered. We were highly upset and disappointed as we were leaving the hotel.

Great great place.
Superb welcome and lovely lovely people.
We had a villa with pool. The room was enormous!
Small issue with booming music most nights until 10.30pm which is annoying with young kids but the management dealt with it and we didn't want to spoil the fun of others.

I would say it's annoying you have to pay for Kids Club - we were on an all inclusive - and that the spa is not free for sauna and steam and cold pool - and maybe lend people snorkles since the beach is so beautiful?

The highlight was Chef Robin. What a legend. What a good cook, a great person and such a friendly and interesting asset that the hotel has in him.

Bravo Chef. My kids send their best!

The grounds and facilities are all beautiful. We had an ocean view room with a swim out and outdoor shower. The room was great but after the first couple of nights we noticed a few small roaches crawling around throughout the day; we asked them to spray which helped a bit. Not something that can be cured given the location and they have a net for the bed but just know you might see a few and to call to have them spray. We really enjoyed going to the gym which had all new equipment. The couples spa we received was amazing. Only small downsides is that some of the food could be improved though I think it was pretty good for resort food. The Japanese restaurant was the best but the service was slow the first night we went (but better the next night). It’s newer so it was not full when we went, so it was quiet and relaxing but they still had activities. I could see it being a little rowdier but still fun once it’s on more people’s radar, the facilities are great for pool/festival-type parties, I just hope all the great things about the place don’t change too much when that happens! Overall we would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

a wonderful hotel where I spent a wonderful time with friends. The lack of access to a natural beach is compensated by two wonderful swimming pools, each of which has a drink bar with delicious all-inclusive drinks, one bar is a water bar with bar stools in the pool. There are plenty of sun loungers by the pool. There is no fighting for sun loungers either. the service was very polite, polite, smiling and willing to help. The rooms are clean, well-kept, bed linen is changed every day. I recommend it if you want to feel luxury, rest and relax in very good conditions

Nice resort but we had issues with coc roaches , we alerted resort and and they fumigated the room but still wanted us to move back into a fumigated room , after much discussion they moved us to the room 3 doors from the infested room . Unfortunately the new room had roaches too. We were then upgraded and moved to the 3rd room . It was just so annoying and frustrating. The management tried hard to make up for the nuisance. We got cared for very well in the upgraded room , then we get calls early in the morning that we owe money for transfer, which we had already paid the day after we arrived. This really annoyed me , a "5 Star" resort calling clients in the morning to come and pay? Please train your stuff thoroughly. This is unacceptable.
