Das Hotel hat einen jungen & dynamischen Stil, sowie Managment. Verschiedene Aktivitaeten wie Boat trips, Angeln oder Tauchen werden geboten und auch auf Anfrage begleidet. Die Zimmer sind liebefoll gestaltet und haben einen frischen Flair. Der Garten mit seinen vielen verschiedenen tropischen Pflanzen gefiel uns besonders. Im grossen & ganzen ein aufmerksamer & hoeflicher Service kuemmerte sich um unsere Wuensche & Anliegen. Sundownwer drinks an der Jetty Bar sind ein muss. Die Kueche ueberraschte uns mit kreativen & liebevoll gewuerzten Gerichten jeden Tag aufs neue. Viel Erfolg fuer die Zukunft im Spice Island.

Room Tip: 2.in der zweiten Reihe missed man den leichten Laerm des Pools

we staid with our daughter at this beautiful resort last august and were very happy with our stay. The room, in our little house, was spacious and comfortable - especially good to have 2 bathrooms with a teenage daughter. The staff was friendly and efficient. Food was very good and the restaurant beautiful, as well as the comfy living room loft. The bar on the pier is something to remember, as it was like sitting out at unbelievable green-blue ocean. And we all had fabulous massage and, us girls, manicure as well.

room prices with breakfast 140 usd, half board 180 usd, full board 220 usd. food and drink prices excellent value. the 2 managing ladies are extremely efficient, present and very attentive to customers and staff. we stayed in another (grubby) place and had our lunches and dinners at the spice island resort. we even took others along. food is great, staff service excellent, reflecting the positive mentality of the managment. charge of 5% on use of creditcards.
we were able to stay alongside the pool using hotel facilities after asking the managment. we felt both ladies were fantastic, and we were greatfull to be able to stay at their place that really stands out in tanzanian hotel landscape.

an efficiently run place, with an extra toilet in each cabin, totalling two toilets. (our main complaint was the lack of a hatch connecting the two commodes which meant our conversation was often frustratingly muffled during times of shared faecal urgency.) a, frankly, sinister head waiter (who the waiting staff clearly feared) meant meals were tense and the preponderance of knick knacks in the rooms offended my wife's delicate sensibilties. (also, inedible pasta was served up one evening in the restaurant..)

on the plus side, the pool's nice, the masai are very lovely and the two hotel dogs are very cute. an extra minute on the pasta, and less of a blood curdling grin from restaurant man and all should be well.

We had an amazing time at Spice Island. The staff are friendly and attentive. The hotel is stunning. Rooms have 4 poster beds, a large bathroom, A/C, fan, balcony, another separate loo. The swimming pool is large and refreshing. I had a massage in the spa which is well worth it if you have tired muscles.

The beach is stunning, long white sand stretching for miles. There is a long pier at the hotel with a beach bar at the end which is great to sit and have cocktails at in the evening.

If you want to venture out of the hotel for some food i would highly recommend Captain Cooks restaurant in Jambiani for some delicious seafood. Just walk right out of the hotel along the beach to the village and you will find it.

All in all a great hotel, i would definitly stay here again.
