"We came here on our trip around Africa. They had overbooked due to the full moon party the next night so tried originally to put us in staff quarters instead of the room we had booked. After a night though we were able to get moved to a nicer room which was night and day better. Full moon party was lots of fun and if thats your scene I would definitely recommend. If not, the party activity is farther away from most of the rooms so shouldn't be an issue. Hotel is a bit isolated form some of the other things to do around this area of Zanzibar. "

"My wife and I flew into Zanzibar and spent our first 3 days in Stone Town The first night Tembo put us in the Tembo Apartments which is in a separate building across the street without a view of the Zanzibar Channel. The desk manager promised to move us and the next 2 nights we were in Room 026 which was a fantastic corner suite with balcony overlooking the Channel. Tembo is short walk to old Fort and Wonder House Boats to Prison Island tortoise sanctuary leave from in front of the hotel No alcohol at Hotel restaurant but there are other venues literally next door Hyatt Hotel is next door as well Book Tembo water view and you will be pleased"

We liked the hotel area and service, the staff members were very friendly and helpful. Meals were a bit pricey, but there are many dining places within 5-minutes walk by the beach."

"I was extremely impressed with the 3 nights I spent at the Zanzibar Grand Palace. The room was excellent with good facilities and very comfortable. The hotel is fantastically designed and the rooftop restaurant is a wonderful spot. The location is great being close to both Forodhani Gardens and Darajani Markets but being very peaceful and quiet. I had a wonderful stay here and would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a reasonably-priced, clean hotel in a good location with exceptional staff and a wonderful design."
