Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 November 2013

This property is 40 minutes from the airport, with no free shuttles to town. It has a wonderful eastern/caribbean feel. They have a set menu except buffet a couple times a week. Food is good and usually 4-5 courses at night. Dining room open 7:30 -9:30 am and pm. Breakfast buffet has everything an all inclusive does. You are sharing one pool with families. The beach swimming is only available at high tide. The villas are set up nicely at one end and only 6 rooms in each. Nice a quiet to sleep, lots of hot water. Property is a gardeners dream beach you can walk for miles. The spa and yoga sessions are worth checking out. Small, expense gift shop on site and they only take cash!

Room Tip: Everything you need even face clothes, no conditioner in the shower just shampoo/conditioner combo...

We stayed at Breezes for 10 days in October following a hectic wedding and safari it was exactly what we needed! The resort itself is great - I hadn't wanted to stay in a large impersonal hotel and Breezes fit the bill. The rooms are great, I would definitely recommend a sea view room as the sea really is beautiful and it was lovely waking up to this each morning. The complimentary champagne and surprise 'sundowners', honeymoon gifts, massages and lunch all added to a great stay! The pool is quite small but there was never a problem getting a bed around with plenty of shade on offer. We favoured the beach as there was a bit more of a breeze and it really was lovely. The food was also fantastic with a wide selection every evening which was usually either a buffet (the BBQ buffet was yummy!) or set menu which was very good quality. We stayed half board and felt that the prices of the cocktails were actually really reasonable (about £4 or £5 a cocktail) and they had an extensive wine and cocktail list to choose from as well. We also took advantage of the dive school which is housed at the hotel and did a discovery scuba dive which was reasonable and absolutely brilliant - the blue lagoon is well worth a visit either snorkeling or diving. My only negative was the fitness centre which was really small and had a lack of equipment. A good gym is really important to us and this did disappoint but this would not stop me going back! It really was a fantastic end to a wonderful honeymoon

Room Tip: Sea view rooms really are worth the extra

We stayed at Breezes in Oct for 3 nights after a 10 day safari. I would love to have stayed for another couple of nights - but that would been enough.

Firstly - the staff and management here were amazing. I emailed about 2 months prior to going, saying that i was planning to proposed to my (now) fiancé while staying in Zanzibar - and was looking for the perfect place. The staff really subtle on our arrival - but made our stay extra special in many ways! We had a free upgrade and bottle champagne, and free 'sundowners'. The customer services manager could not of been more helpful!

As for the resort itself. It is very comfortable - the food is really good (lunch is a bit pricy…) and there is a huge variety of breakfast and dinner options. The pool is relatively small - but this is nice and intimate (not full of screaming kids…) and the beach is pristine. There are all kinds of options to eat on the beach or in a private area - but i think that the standard areas are beautiful enough anyway!

The room (a junior suite) was really nice, good air-conditioning, HUGE bed and really large balcony with sofas to look out over the gardens and sea.

We went on a snorkelling trip one day - which was average - and did not do any of the other things that were on offer (Diving, kite surfing, sailing, huge spa etc) - but to be honest you really don't need to. It is simply lovely just relaxing on the beach or by the pool.

I would recommend this to anyone as a part of a honeymoon or luxury holiday!

On our last trip to Zanzibar we stayed at the refurbished Fairmont and couldn't fault it. On this trip, our travel agent booked us at Breezes. On balance it was ok. Good things included a relaxed atmosphere; spacious accommodation; nice clean beach; friendly staff and accessible activities and watersports. I enjoyed diving and the family got some reasonable snorkeling done. It's also quite reasonable and the family felt comfortable ordering poolside drinks and snacks without any sticker shock.

The hotel is fitted out with many Zanzibari features and is rich in woodwork. But it is now dated and a little dull. The staff are friendly but not trying hard enough. Our package included breakfast and dinner - breakfast was not very varied day after day, and dinner was always a 'set meal' therefore not ideal. The pool was a simple one - not very exciting for the kids.

We paid nearly $900 per night for a family of 5 to stay in the "family villa" which turned out to be the upper part of a villa. Guess it doesn't have the same ring to it if it is called "family apartment".

Overall: would have been acceptable if it wasn't priced at 4 star prices.

Room Tip: The place is run by Italians, so the beachside bar/lunch restaurant serves some incredible pizza.

My family, wife and 12 year old daughter, stayed at Breezes for 7 nights in August and each had a slightly different take. What we all liked:
The room was fantastic. We were on the second floor of the building closest to the ocean and had an amazing view of the beach and ocean. My daughter liked her small day bed and the king bed was very comfortable. There was a very large deck with several sets of lounge chairs. The room was clean and comfortable.

The beach has beautiful soft white sand with quite a bit of seating but most chairs were gone by late morning. They serve basic food and drinks on the beach which is nice if you just want to relax all day. The pool area is also nice with a good number of chairs but again they were usually gone by early afternoon.

The management is very friendly and accommodating. Our travel plans were affected by the Nairobi airport fire and we ended up having to stay 2 extra days. Management made the process much better than it might have been. While most of the staff were friendly we didn't have the same outstanding service we'd had while on safari in Kenya.

The food was anywhere from good to great but not amazing. On the plus side there was almost always a good variety to choose from.

My wife would definitely return as she likes relaxing and laying on the beach above all else. Breezes is the perfect location for that.

My daughter also had a good time but was getting bored by the end of the stay (4 nights would have been perfect for her.)

I would probably not return for the following reason. I tend to be more active and really enjoy water activities. While the beach is gorgeous with powder soft sand your water activities are at the mercy of the tide. When the tide is out it is WAY out. You can walk for several hundred yards out to the reef edge and never have the water higher than your shin. This makes for an interesting reef walk but makes it impossible to snorkel, swim, kayak, wind surf or do any other in water activity. Since the water is either coming or going for half the time it was not an ideal spot for me.

The resort does offer an off site snorkel trip that costs extra that we did. Unfortunately it was one of the worst snorkel experiences I've had. The water was clear and there was plenty to see but the group was far too large, 20 people, and were told to all stay together as we swam at top speed 50 yards from the boat and then back again. The whole time you're swimming past things that would have been interesting to look at if given the time.

I would highly recommend the City and Spice Tour offered through the resort. The city portion was interesting but the spice tour was a very pleasant surprise. You walk through a working plantation and get to taste and smell many fruits and spices. There's some entertainment of sorts as they made a crown, tie and rings out of leaves for the three of us and provide a tree climbing demonstration.

Depending on what you're after in a vacation Breezes may be perfect for you but wasn't ideal for me.

My wife and I have just returned from safari then stayed at Breezes to relax. The hotel itself is beautiful with excellent rooms all well spaced out. The restaurant was first class with a wide selection of veggi food which was great for us. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. I can highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at Breezes for 5 nights after a safari holiday and really loved it. The whole holiday was my 50th birthday present and somehow the hotel knew that. We were upgraded to a suite on the first floor of one of the blocks near the ocean, which was spotless and the view was amazing. The room was absolutely fabulous with large bathroom, really good shower, dressing room and safe, outside terrace area with sofa and chairs and sun loungers. The bed was really comfortable and was turned down for us each evening. There was a complimentary bottle of bubbles in the fridge, and we also had a sundowner and appetisers delivered to the room as a surprise one evening. The breakfast was great with loads of choice. The evening meals in the restaurant were good too, alternating between a buffet and a sit down meal served at your table (choice of two main courses). We did also treat ourselves to a meal at Tides, the restaurant for 2 people, which was fantastic but quite pricy. You choose your menu options earlier in the day and then are treated like royalty for the evening, it really was a very special experience. I also had a birthday cake presented to me at the end of the meal with all the kitchen staff singing happy birthday, which was a lovely touch. The pool area is lovely and the pool quite big. The beaches are white sand and the ocean very warm. The tide goes out quite a long way so jelly shoes are a good idea to protect your feet, you can hire them from the watersports centre. We also used the dive centre, my husband did two dives in the lagoon while I snorkelled. The visibility was good and there were quite a few fish, but I don't think it is anywhere near as good as the Red Sea. While eating lunch one day in the bar by the beach, we saw hump backed whales breaching just outside the reef which was a great sight.
We really loved this hotel but I think 5 nights were enough for us, perfect end to a great holiday.
