눉We were disappointed with the overall experience, as we were expecting a less simple, more luxurious hotel for the price we paid (almost USD 200 a day). The room was too simple, smelled humid throughout our stay, and didn't have items standard in good hotels, such as paper tissues. It is rather annoying that internet disconnects after a couple of minutes and you have to re-login with user name and password every time... The beach is nice (no paradise!), but has algae and 200m to the north it gets really really dirty (with rubbish lying all around). That might not be the direct responsibility of the hotel, granted, but it's not the kind of experience you expect for USD 200 a night. So spending all your time in the hotel is not a great proposition. But visiting places from the hotel's location takes a long time, as it is very far from all points of interest in Zanzibar... Transportation is quite expensive unless you take the local Dala Dalas (an interesting experience, but it takes a looong time). You'd be better off staying in Stone Town. There hotels of comparable quality would cost around half the money. The Park Hyatt is awesome and costs about the same. If you want to be in a proper beach hotel, book yourself in Kendwa or Nungwi beach.
눇Zanzibar, Next Paradise Mixed feelings about this hotel... First the positives: the staff is friendly and helpful. Medca at reception was very supportive with directions, bookings, etc. Also, the hotel looks nice, is right by the beach and has a beautiful green lush garden.

눉It took them forever to clean our room, everyday. They usually only got around to it after 1pm which is an issue if you are with children who can get quite messy. Their menu was pretty boring and limited, but amazing food for a lot less could be gotten from the local haunts.
눇The people were very friendly
