Reviewed 28 February 2013

Me and my daughter stayed 3 nights in this wonderful place on the white beach. Very quiet place and only adults at that time.
clean rooms and very friendly people working there.
Security was fine.
the restaurant was overlooking the sea.

We stayed at the Z Hotel in November 2012 during the low season period . We were looking for a relaxing and refreshing holiday. We found the environment to be exactly what we were looking for and the staff most welcoming . The service was world class and our rooftop suite was excellent with the best view of the beach and the sea. The swimming pool area is so tranquil it relaxes your body and mind. WIFI was available throughout our stay . The standby generator is so reliable we never experienced a minute of darkness despite the constant powercuts in Zanzibar .
The menu in both restaurants however needs some exciting additions as it was rather limited .
I recommend the Z Hotel as the first choice if you are going to Zanzibar

We were looking for a beak in the sun with good snorkelling and plenty of things to do (if we wished). The Z hotel combines service, excellent position with superb comfort.
The room was outstanding and all the facilities were brilliant. The best thing however is its position, breathtaking views from the hotel onto the white sand and brilliant blue sea.

Room Tip: We stayed in a top floor sea view suite which was stunning.

We stayed there in a part of our honeymoon in August 2012. The hotel is very nice, clean rooms, beautiful restaurants and very good food, Very good service, the pool is great. The only disappointment we had was not the hotel's fault, but with Zanzibar in general. It is very overpriced, all the activities are expensive, and everybody wants just to take your money and give you the minimum and you really could get much more with what you pay in other beautiful parts of the world.

We stayed for 8 nights after safari in the mainland in Tanzania. The hotel offers very good service, free wi-fi and most of the staff are very nice and helpful. However, there were som errors, so it is a 4 points out of 5. For instance, we did not get our change back when we paid for the week and when things are supposed to be done (like fixing broken things) you have to repeat the request and the fine dine restaurant sometimes were quite chaotic as regards the orders. But most of the staff are very good, especially the manager, Julie - she's excellent. It is also sympathetic that you are supposed to tip in the end and that the tip is dispersed among all employees. Some of the male staff, however, seem to have a problem with talking directly to women. If the woman asks a question, he would answer and look at the man. The Mrembo tours, who have an office in the Z hotel area, were not that good, except for the spice tour.

It was a nicehotel and i was infinity swimming pool. Bedroom was really nice with a nice view on the beach.
Also, the staff was really nice.

We got a wonderful welcome when we got at the hotel.

Unfortunately, this could be a 5 etoiles but because of the food i cannot give one more star. We got food poisoning during our stay there.. Before being at the Z hotel i've been in different 3 stars hotels in tanzania and we never got sick before in our trip.

It is sad to get sick in this kind of hotel..... Losing a day of vacation when you spend 300$ a night it's not cool.
