Unfortunately had an episode of food poisoning.
The easy accessibility to the beach, beautiful beautiful grounds and layout. Samaki restaurant had the most amazing scenery ever. One of the most amazing couple massages over.

Wifi log-in presented some initial challenges which were resolved by management
On our 2nd visit to Zanzibar we decided to stay near Nungwi . Royal Zanzibar has a great location, next to Gemma DelÉst and a great beach.The grounds are well maintained and the rooms were comfortable.We will definitely visit the resort on our next trip to Zanzibar.

The gym is too poor for this 5* resort. Also the internet connection is poor. ok, even if tourists are in vacantion, most of the people are using for 1-2 hours/day the internet for the job. and yes, you can work also from the beach, only if you have a good conection.
The staff is trying to do the best for the tourists. from the restaurant I can remark Julius, from the beach bar Emanuel and Michael and from the animation team I would like to say that Yousuf and Khamis are the best. but also the rest of the stuff are wonderfull.

Not really 5* by western standards but then not really those prices either.
Very nice location, quiet & relaxing, excellent pools and a fabulous beach. All staff very friendly.

Great Food and very well organised buffet and staff well trained in the bars and services. Great Reception once we arrived , we were a group of 3 friends, the All inclusive idea is the best thing we ever did and it really met our expectations. Staff is very friendly and the beach is amazing.

Some of the younger inexperienced bar staff need some more lessons on making cocktails.
I really enjoyed the beach volleyball, the bar staff & the enthusiastic animation team.

The resort require a touch of luxury.
*The friendly staff and the warm hospitality. *The daily entertainment schedule.

There's no internet: - There is WiFi but internet doesn't work (but for a computer in the business area). Bar on the beach with no music.
All of the staff were simply great, very friendly and helpful people, they did the best to let us enjoy our holiday to the max. John and Michael were great beach bar bartenders, Salim Yusuf and Khamis have been simply great animators, Al-Haji was a very friendly trainee waiter. I would strongly recommend staying in this resort.

The beach boys are the only turn off. Unfortunately all beaches are public and so you are hassled everytime you walk on the beach to buy tours/souvenirs. A polite firm no thank you usually works
Very pleasant staff, good selection of food at meals. Nice beach and beach side area and good pools Big comfortable rooms, beds made up with beautiful flowers/swan decorations each day

The bathroom wasn't clean enough for being a 5 star resort. Especially the shower, we found moist and mold on the window strips and a lot of dust. The resort is quite big but it's not a true 5 star resorts. We've visited plenty 5 star resorts and Royal have to improve to be able to play in the same league.
The staff is always smiling and open to help any guest at any time. The staff always greets the guests in the traditional way, Jambo! which made us feel welcomed and very comfortable during our stay at the resort. The location is very good since it's close to great dive sites and it has a long public white beach which is perfect for long walks. If it wasn't for the staff our experience wouldn't have been as good as it was. It has a big garden and a OK pool area (the swim up bar is very nice)

The only reason I gave the facilities a rating of "good" instead of "excellent" is that the wi-fi rarely worked throughout the complex. It only works if you are sitting in/near the Reception. The staff are very nice and friendly, however the service is slow.
Excellent food! Amazing suite! Great location!

Staff were excellent!
September 4, 2014
food could be a bit better, the beach flu of beach boys, to sell something, this is sometimes too much
the staff is always kindly and nice, everything clean and tidy, wonderful sea view from our room, very good atmosphere

Excellent pools, good variety of food and kind and well trained staff. There was a problem with room reservations and we were asked to change the room within our 7-day stay. However after intervention with the management we could keep our room; the problem was handled professionally. Whether it is really 5-star is out of our discussion as we liked to stay in this resort.
