    In general, the hotel was okay, with an excellent location.

    In general, the hotel was okay, with an excellent location. However, there were some issues to address: The breakfast had a good variety of food, but unfortunately, warm items were cold. When I requested my sausages to be reheated, they were returned cold, accompanied by a surprised question about wanting them hot. It would be better if the staff anticipated the preference for warm breakfast items. The bed was so uncomfortable, causing back pain every morning. I tried all sides of mattress, and anyways there was a pit regardless of the position. This might be specific to only my bed, but it needs attention. The restaurant offers good food at reasonable prices, and the waiters speaks good English and are polite ( except trainees) Cleanless! Room was clean and tide, but there were several diferent bugs around, but its Africa, you just need to ask to spray your room for bugs (i asked but they never did) and you need to ask for wc paper and ask for clean towels. Water pression in the shower and hot water was very good. Unfortunately AC didnt wor for last 2 nights. I guess a gas just finished, but noone came to check on it, just excuses about low voltage. Well, when voltage was low even fridge was not working, bet when voltage restored AC and fridge worked excellent. Water got frozen in the fridge in 1h - so thats not a low voltage at all. Despite the issues, I tought I would consider to come back, but after last 2 nights struggles, I doubt about it. Particularly I would suggest a room with a sea view and small private pool, keeping in mind that perfection may not exist in every aspect, especially in a place like Zanzibar.

    The internet is going to tell you Kendwa has the most beautiful beach in Zanzibar....it has not....not at all....yes, the beach is nice and wide and white.....but there is no vegetation at all, it's full of sunbeds and umbrellas from the resorts/hotels....way to many traders and not much to offer than going up and down, only to then retreat to your hotel or some place with shade....if you come here for drinks or a party, fine, but don't waste all of your vacation here, when there are many other cheaper and more beautiful places on the island...

    Kendwa beach in its self is one of the best I have been too and I have been a regular beach traveller worldwide for the last 40 years. The only advice I would suggest would be to vet the hotel thoroughly as sunseabar was not upto standard it advertised. Go out into local restaurants we tried 4 different ones all were superb so far superior to the hotel

    Serene grounds, welcoming staff and very courteous to clientele. Food was good (seafood) and the rooms are superb ( got an ocean view facing the tennis court. Need more African entertainment for guests at night though!

    Clean, small and quiet guest house right on the beach!

    Clean, small and quiet guest house right on the beach! They welcome you with a delicious fresh tropical juice! It is nice to see local people and fishermen living just next door. In the other hand thou, the front sea is full of boats that make swimming a bit complicated. The staff is very kind. Rooms are sober but clean and furnitures are nicely wooden. Breakfast is in range(no buffet, no choice) but good. Very much recommended place. I would definitely return there.

    Kendwa is the perfect beach holiday. This is the only area bot effected by tides. The beach is wonderful and offers great places to eat. Kendwa rocks offers a great BBQ with live entertainment on Saturdays.

    Good location, though access is not immediate. They have a partnership with Kendwa Rocks Hotel and for 20 USD you can enjoy their pool and beach sunbeads. The restaurant is very good. Great food with normal price range. Good breakfast as well. They are worried about the quality of the stay and ask for feedback at the moment, which gives guests the opportunity to communicate if something is not going so well and they try to improve / meet your needs, which happened to us.

    A great budget option in Kendwa. The main thing I understand in Zanzibar is that you need the hotel with the own access to beach, since the roads here is not good. The Mano meet this important rule. Also there is a fish market further in beach. Every day we bought the fresh fish on market and guys in hotel cooked it for us. It was very delicious. It's not a all-inclusive Turkey hotel, but the best option for Africa, if you came here for climate and beach.

    The location was excellent. Staff was excellent. Short walk to main beach for great swimming. Great relaxing area outside the hotel on the beach. The views from restaurant was amazing with the turquoise waters a stone throw away. Restaurant was okay. Themed dinner nights were interesting. Many other restaurants also walking distance along the beach. Evening/night time activities/shows were interesting at the resort.

    Good hotel with good facilities. The man in charge is wonderful at helping you with every need and all the staff is so friendly and fun! Great place for the full moon parties at Kendwa Rocks as it is a very short distance to the beach. It is included sun beds and pool at the beach which is a big plus! Stayed there two times already in a month, will definitely come back!

    We stayed at Gold Zanzibar for 3 nights. It is a beautiful resort in an amazing location right on Kendwa beach. The food was incredible and the buffets had so many options. The pool was nice and there was also a spa that had a great deal on some of their treatments. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was lovely, with beautiful balcony views.

    We really liked the quiet & serene location of the hotel on Kendwa beach. Would definitely go back. The breakfast was our favourite meal of the day!! Comfortable and adequate rooms. Karim, Farooq and the hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. Families, solo travellers and couples...all seemed to comfortably stay there!!

    This place is like a paradise. The service attitude and the team spirit of the hotel staff is extraordinary. They read our wishes from our lips. We travel a lot. But this was by far the best 5-Star-Hotel we ever visited. The rooms, the beach, the food, the facilities, the music in the evening: All is very high standard and exclusive.

    Everything was great! Accommodation quality is amazing for Zanzibar standards but the best thing about this place is Villa's staff, especially Dula. He will help you with EVERYTHING and go the extra mile each time. Location of the place is also great, 4 minutes to the beach, loads of shops and cafes around and it feels safe

    The location is unbeatable. At the bottom of the steps starts the sand leading to one of the nicest beaches in Zanzibar. It's right next door to restaurants and activities.
