“very enjoyable holiday best ever”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Really enjoyed this holiday very relaxing. Thomas, afizi, tracey and george owners could not had done more for us during our stay. The site is situated only five minutes from the beach where there are nice bars and restaurants. The beach was beautiful with golden sand and blue sea the beach itself was very clean and tidy and the locals are very friendly and proud people. Please be aware of local custom and dress respectfully when not on the beach.

The resort its self is situated near the village and you really get to see how the locals live, accommodation is very clean and tidy, breakfast was fresh fruit picked from trees on the land tea, coffee fresh fruit juice made by Thomas which was lovely. As you would expect in africa there are no street lamps so a touch at night lking back from the beach. Staff from G Oasis escorted quests from the beach back to the resort, 24 hour security we felt very safe.

All in all if you want to experience the culture of zanzibar at very reasonable prices this is the place to stay. Thanks to Tracey and George for an amazing holiday and will be booking again.

G. Oasis is a very nice place to stay and RELAX, 5 minutes walk from the beach.
We spent 6 wonderful days there. I agree it is an oasis!
It is not at the beach, but it’s a clean, peaceful, lovely, not expensive and safe place.
G.Oasis located just near the village, school and soccer field, so it was really nice to observe the local people, to meet and communicate with them.
The room was very nice with a big and clean bathroom. Fresh breakfast is included.
The stuff was excellent! Martin is a very cute and so kind person. Thomas was really friendly and helpful. He met us, walked us around village and showed good different places such a shops, café, internet etc. He tried to do his best to make our stay more comfortable.
I just have a small remark, during our stay they didn't change bed-clothes.
I don’t understand the previous negative responses about G.Oasis, probably they expected something like the Z Hotel Zanzibar or more luxery accomodation for 50$ per night?
Best wishes, Anna.

I recommend nobody this hotel. Is very far from the sea. In the evening only with a small lamp, shopping mall it is necessary to go across the field with garbage. In numbers there is only a bed and a little table, there is neither chair nor a case, a mirror, only a few hooks for clothes on entrance clothes. Water in a toilet flows down in the opposite direction, why then the bathroom costs in water. The poor breakfast, is absent hot, there are neither fried eggs, nor an omelet!
The price not adequate, in the hotels located directly on the sea, is much lower than the price!

We thank these guest for their comments, they failed to tell you they were removed from G.OASIS because of there poor conduct, I hope that anyone reading this reviews will by-pass there feed back. I suggest these visitors would be better off going to Europe for a holiday where they don't have to respect the African people and their culture, Need I say any more.

No, its not at the beach but its a lovely and safe place and very good value. It is located between the beach and the village, at the end of football field. Watching locals to play during the day and trying not to run into the cows at night was actually fun. We had planned to stay for 2 nights but ended up for 4. Everything was new and clean. Thomas and other staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was huge and tasty with a fresh passion fruit juice every morning. Nights were relaxing. If you don't mind a bit of local life, this is the place to stay. But don't forget your torch. You will need it on the way back in the dark.

I stayed a few days at G. Oasis in Nungwi. The cottages are a 5 minute walk from the beach. They were clean, good value and included a yummy breakfast. Thomas was very friendly and helpful. He met me at the bus station, walked me around town and offered to walk me back from the beach at night.

There are two minor detractors. The location is at the end of a football field with some rubbish around. There is no wifi at the hotel, but nearby. If these don't matter to you, then you should have a nice stay.

We stayed at g oasis for 5 nights and it was a lovely time. The property is pretty new and only has 5 bandas (bungalows). They are building a restaurant on site, but it wasn't ready when we were there. The property is fenced in and has 24hr security.

We were really happy with our stay at g oasis. We weren't expecting much as the price was pretty cheap, but we really loved it! The staff were super friendly. The rooms were really clean. The plumbing and hot water showers were decent. The breakfast here was superb and it was included in the room rate. The only thing I would say needs to be improved is the entrance...it's off a soccer field and its full of garbage. If you walk by at night, there are cows lying around.

G oasis is not on the beach. It's actually at the end of a soccer field in town. It's about a 5 min walk to the beach through some alleyways. The streets are safe during the day but just be careful at night. We had no issues while we were there. G oasis was also 2 min walk away from the local supermarket (very small). There is no wifi with or Internet at g. Oasis, but there is an Internet cafe with wifi for cheap about 2 min walk from hotel. Internet is slow everywhere in nungwi.

Just a note that the cab ride from the airport or stone town should only cost approx TZS 50,000 one way; and about TZS 60,000 two ways. There are no ATMs in Nungwi so get your money in stone town. There are places that take credit car advances, but they rip you off.

Stayed at this resort two weeks ago and had the most amazing experience! All of the staff were incredibley friendly and helpful which meant we really got to experience the island. A really safe and comfortable place to stay with fresh and clean rooms. Would highly recommend this to anyone travelling to Zanzibar - I have already booked my trip back!
