We really loved staying at Waikiki and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing time on the beach. The location is quieter and less busy on the beach than other parts of Zanzibar. I should note that Waikiki does have a very large party on Saturdays that can go on pretty late with loud music. We figured sleeping would...

This is a nice spot on the east coast. The food was decent and the owners were present saying hello and making sure the stay was good. They have a great beach and a bunch of chairs and benches for laying out. Also their pizza is great!

I wanted a place to relax after a Kilimanjaro climb, and this place was perfect. Wakiki is right on the beach, and has everything you could need for a relaxing time.

We, an older couple, spent 4 days at Waikiki and mainly had a good time, with some frustrations. Positives: It is a beautiful place, with white sand and a swimmable beach. Great for kitesurfing, and lounging. The on-site tour guides are semi-independent but reliable and price-competitive. The facilities are very nice; great landscaping, comfortable restaurants, and nice, modern rooms. We...
