This was our first time on African soil and it was quite the charm thanks to the Reef and Beach Resort. We were just in time to experience the new renovations so that was definitely a plus. Our rooms proved to be very comfortable, spick-and-span and air conditioned. The view of the Indian Ocean from our bungalow patio was nothing short of spectacular while the ebb and flow of the waves at night was music to the ears. The atmosphere is so relaxing and refreshing and the hotel grounds are swanked in lush flowers and trees.
The dining and food was superb. Well prepared, delectable and heavenly. They have a great sea-food offering. Every aspect of the resort is wrapped in authentic African elegance. The beach was just as great as pool side. We highly recommend the safari tour. They have some amazing scenery and animals. You have to visit their excursion desk and ask for Simba while you're at it. He has the best deals.
Kudos to the resort staff! They displayed one of the best customer service we've ever received. They were always friendly, pleasant and helpful, especially the bartenders. If you want to know more about Zanzibar’s customs and people without the use of Google, then they’re your best bet. We loved the bar on the jetty by the way. It has a really lovely view.
The pricing is also great for the family or couple on a budget. If you’re looking for great food, amenities, atmosphere and an overall great time, then this is it!
