          Rooms very clean and reasonably priced, staff unprofessional from manager to reception and waiters ”

          Great location, staff have no clue how to handle guests, not rude but extremely unprofessional. I was asked for my passport details whilst having dinner by the receptionist who forgot during check in. She also insisted that I stop having dinner to fetch my passport!! HAHAHA HAHAHA Just before check out the manager was screaming with rage at hotel staff and I'm sure the screams were heard by many guests in their rooms.

          Great location. Food in restaurant is delicious. Perfect service. But a little bit expensive. And it's OK but in rooms you will have no fridge, water, plates and even glasses. This way they make you to buy everything in hotel. I think it's a little bit too much...

          Good value for money”

          On my opinion Pwani Mchangan is the best option in Zanzibar as hotels go along the coast one after one so there are only hotel guests there. Some locals can appear but they are not so many as in other places. Hotel is really good value for money - small cute place with own beach. Do not expect a miracle - it is not European 4-5* hotel, it is nice rustic hotel having around 10-15 local style villas. If you want luxury or have very high expectations, you better pay triple price and book another place. Tap water is salty (as far as I know it is common in Zanzibar hotels) but it was ok for me taking shower for 3 days, they provide bottled water to brush your teeth. Food is good, quite expensive for Zanzibar but normally priced for Pwani Mchangan area, free wi-fi in the restaurant. Simone is adding much value to the service there (so I am giving 4* for him coz of him) and I assume owner has to give him a biiig bonus! Tours can be arranged on cheaper price than in other places. I just suggest to management to stop using/buying white towels as they get grey and look untidy.

          The position is fabulous. Right on a beautiful beach you can dine wig the sand between your toes. In terms of staff they have found a utopia of professionalism, efficiency, and charm.

          Loved the design of the place and the quirky details, like the signage, the guitar and fairy lights on the bar. Loved the staff!

          rustic african hotel”

          location, owner, budget.

          we had an amazing stay in waikiki resort. the owner who attended us during our cehck in was very helpful. the hotel is very rustic african style if you looking for modern hotel this is not for you. we like the beach in this hotel and the food was delicious considering you are in Africa. only few concern about this hotel, you MUST becareful with the restaurant staff being not so honest, during check out they put extra meal to our bill which we never order, i know its only couple of dollar but the intention is not honest, and everyone dislike it. only during check out we realized that our money is gone from my wallet 100dollar, we assumed the housekeeping lady took the money, although i put my money in my suitcase but unlocked :( but of course we dont have proof as we realized it only during check out. i think as long as you are careful with your money if you stay here. beside of that this hotel is beautiful with nature touch. we recomended this hotel.

          Nice beach and weather. Quiet. ”

          On the beachfront. Staff is very friendly. Quiet.

          The water in the room is very salty and not suitable for brushing teeth and after showering your skin is still sticky. There's not much food options around but to eat at the resort's restaurant for most meals. Suitable for quiet getaways only as there's not much to do around the area unless you take up tours which are quite expensive for an underdeveloped place like zanzibar. The beach is beautiful with insanely white and soft sand. Ideal for swimming either in the morning or afternoon. During noon time there's low tide so it's just sand and no water which is very interesting.

          As part of the welcome we had a personalised introduction with the owner, which was new for us, and it made the hotel even more attractive. Every morning at breakfast we had to fill in a short feedback in which any issues could be highlighted, the staff made every effort to solve these problems, to make our stay more pleasent.

          Paradiso”

          Il Resort è situato in un villaggio povero dove non c’è nulla dunque non aspettatevi di uscire o far altro, tranne se prendete un taxi e fate un po’ di strada. Meno male che il resort ti offre tutto con un livello di qualità altissimo sia nel cibo, che nella pulizia e sicurezza. Le maree offrono paesaggi indimenticabili ed i beach boys restano a distanza se rimani nelle sdraio a rilassarti. Da consigliare vivamente.
