I spent 4 days in this really awesome place. The room and bathroom are really big with some African style furniture. But still no wifi in room yet hope next time it works. Food are really fresh, especially like fish.

I visited this place towards the end of my Tanzania trip in July 2014. I stayed at a few places around Zanzibar and all were quite nice, except this place. Originally, I had reserved at a different resort, but they had overbooked me. They decided to send me to another one of their resorts and explained to me that it... More

I've just came back from my vacation to Zanzibar, where this time I decided to try another beach and place to stay at. Villa dida was recommended to me by a friend, but was also a last minute decision as we were leaving for Zanzibar and had no booking yet; so we couldn't comment much. They were very nice and...

Rooms are huge and very spacious. It feels like a bit of too much concrete to me though. Rooms were also not very clean and were quite dark. Prices are competitive and the food they offer is fine. Service is fair, nothing too outstanding. The pool is great and it is right on the beach. Although it's really shallow so... More

We stayed at Villa Dida in July 2011. We nave bene extremely satisfied by our choice given to the fact that we dislike  "all inclusive" type resorts and this small property is completely the opposite.
