“Very relaxing place, lovely landscapes”
Reviewed 26 January 2011

It is overvalued, I would expect it to be 4 stars not 5. The quality of the food is excellent but you must be a fish lover to fully enjoy it. The fruit is incredible! The staff look at your needs, there is an expensive SPA centre. The sea is fantastic, the tide goes in and out giving you beatiful landscapes. There is nowher to go by walk apart excursions to the city or villages, so a place to relax or to do some water sports. On the left hand side of the hotel, if you walk 200m, there is a shop of a friendly guy, his name is AZIZI, it was nice to shop there. He got the typical painting of the island and other nice items. I would definetely come back to Breezes Beach Hotel.

We stayed at Breezes Beach Club for 4 nights at the end of our honeymoon. We booked through ATR, who we would highly recommend and who gave a fair description of the hotel. We booked to stay at Breezes as we wanted to end our honeymoon at a luxury resort. However Breezes is distinctly average and overpriced. Before staying at Breezes we stayed at the considerably cheaper Pongwe Beach Hotel and we much preferred this smaller hotel and it’s location on Zanzibar.
On arrival at Breezes we were taken to our room. We had booked a standard room which was tucked away at the back of the hotel in a separate characterless block. The room was air conditioned, clean and simply decorated. The service was poor and the staff were not very friendly and made no effort to help. This was very different to our experience at the smaller lodges/hotels we stayed at in Tanzania. We were given a number of complimentary vouchers for massages, lunch, kitesurfing and yoga, possibly because we were on our honeymoon. I was impressed with the spa but the showers in the spa periodically stopped working.
The hotel is situated on a mediocre beach and the tide goes out a very long way. There are lots of sea urchins so it’s not suitable for walking out into the water without reef shoes. Definitely not suitable for children. Since the beach is nothing spectacular most people sit round the pool. The hotel is situated on a stretch of beach next to a number of other very large hotels. The hotel has a private restaurant called Tides but it was booked up the entire time we were there. The main restaurant is usually a themed buffet and the food was generally very good.
Our stay at Breezes was OK but overpriced. This is not a luxury hotel and I think you can do better on both the hotel and the overall location. The hotel is pretending to be something it’s not. In hindsight I wish we’d stayed at Pongwe Beach for our entire stay. I would recommend Zanibar as a good beach location following a safari but you have to be very careful on your choice of hotel and the overall location on the island. We also stayed at Mawe Ninga, Plantation lodge, Oldavai Camp and the Serengeti Serena on the mainland.

The resort is beautifully decorated. The room is spacious and staff is very friendly. Entertainment is nice. Proximity of swimming pool, beach and bars. The frangipani massage in the spa is a must do.

The only thing I would improve is more options for lunch (we were in half board).

Breezes is a lovely hotel with friendly staff. The lobby area is very attractive. Standard rooms are not very close to to beach but it is very nice to walk in the beautiful garden. Room and bathroom were very clean.

Breakfast and dinners were very good (we were on half-pension).

The beach is beautiful. It should be noted that there is a high and a low tide every day. At low tide one cannot swim but one can walk and admire the see life. At low tide local fishermen catch octopuses. We joined a couple of them and had great fun (I even pulled out an octopus from its hole with the fisherman's stick). A small tip will produce this fun (they seemed to be happy for a 1 USD tip per person).

There is a souvenier shop on the beach to the left from the hotel. Tours can be booked there a lot cheaper than from the hotel (licenced guide, driver and a good car).

I had my birthday during the stay and to my great surprise they gave a congratulations ceremony at dinner, cake, candles, singing...). I have often been at hotels during my birthday but this never happened before. I was really impressed.

I really enjoyed myself at Breezes. I have recommended the hotel to one of my best friends and they are now going there.

My husband and I have just returned from Breezes, where we spent 8 nights of our honeymoon, post-safari.

We had a fantastic time - our stay at Breezes was so relaxing and it was the perfect place to unwind after our wedding and going on safari. The beach is lovely - white sand and turquoise sea, with lots of loungers and shades on the hotel's private beach. There are also plenty of beach activities and equipment available at the Water Sports Centre.

The hotel itself and the bedrooms are really clean and comfortable and the gardens are very well kept. The hotel really does look exactly as it appears in the photos on the website.

The food was delicious - and there's lots of it! The service was excellent and all the serving staff are extremely friendly.

The hotel spa offers a good range of treatments and the massages are amazing. Yoga lessons are also available, and there's a fairly well-equipped gym. There's also a tennis court and one of the guys who works at the gym is happy to have a hit with you if you don't have anyone to play with.

We went on a couple of trips organised by the hotel (a dolphin tour and Jozani Forest tour, and City and spice tour). Both were very efficiently organised and really enjoyable. Although it's great to relax at the hotel, we also enjoyed getting out and about and seeing some of the island and local culture.

I would really recommend Breezes to anyone wanting a relaxing and luxurious beach holiday.

Breezes was the perfect place for us to unwind and relax after our gruelling trek up Kilimanjaro. The room we stayed in was wonderful (sea view suite overlooking the white sandy beach and blue sea, very spacious with a large terrace to relax and look at the stars at night. Meals were excellent and varied. The highlight of our stay was the themed barbeque night with grilled lobster, steak and calamari (my favourite) and listening to lovely music played by a live band! The range of spa services were superb (although expensive it was worth it). Breezes also offers a range of water based activities as well as lovely swimming pool with pool bar serving pizzas and lunchtime snacks. Overall we had a wonderful stay here and would recommend Breezes to anyone contemplating either a relaxing holiday or an activity filled one - Breezes seems to have it all.

We stayed the Breezes Beach & Spa Resort for 5 days after a 5 day safari in Zanzibar. We booked a suite (following comments we read on Tripadvisor and other websites regarding the size of the standard rooms) and were happy to see that the extra money was well spent (although we weren't able to compare with the standard rooms of course). Huge room with air conditioning, nice bathroom, seperate dressing, large balcony. One thing to keep in mind regarding the Breezes, this is a typical resort for young couples on their honeymoon. If you're a party with children, this may not be the best resort for you.
