      Not worth it go to the nabor hotel”
      Mold infestation everywhere even dotgh the "luxury room" we stayed in was just renewed. mold in the pillows and the wibe from the other dissatisfied guests doesent make stay more plesant. food is basic. A huge place with only the sound of tumbleweeds, dissatisfaction and the grim reminder of what long lost greatness looks like.

      I loved my time there! I was able to enjoy Zanzibar from the resort! The actual Resort was okay but what stood out most were two things, first, the food served at the resort was truly Amazing!!! The second thing was the excursions offered at the resort were excellent and the best prices which were both unbeatable and unbelievable!

      Incompetent management”
      - only positive: food and cleaning-/guardingstaff. View from balcony. - mould on the wall - shower with mould, really old and disgusting. - 2 single beds tried to connect with one towel, uncomfortable! Old matrasses! - AC flooded the floor and water ran in the lamp --> lifethreatening!! Cable couldnt be removed from electricity because it was coming from outside the wall. After repairing lamp was ok, AC did not work. - Absolutely no welcome at arrival, only a lazy guy looking at you saying "booking?". Did not know anything about our booking and wanted a confirmation printed on paper (for a onlinebooking!). Then sent us to a occupied room! - Outside-Aerea: Pathways and flowerbeds were swept and raked the hole day, but bottles, plastic and other rubbish laid around without being noticed!! Sunbeds were broken (all of them! Happily there were only 5 on the beach for all the hotelguests!) the bedcovers laid there 24/7 and thats how they looked! - Pool was green at arrival

      If you're looking for a quiet place in Zanzibar which is clean, affordable and has good food - look no more. Plus good excursions planned for the whole week which you can opt for... with the luxury of staying back and chilling at the lush green resort whenever you want. Great place and great hosts!

      Great resort for couples.”
      When you look at the map you can think, that this resort is at the end of world - and you are right , but this is an advantage - chill neighborhood and low prices are biggest values of Maars Chwaka Resort. I can fully recommend this place for anyone - older or younger, couples or singles, backpack travelers or prestige business class flyers.

      Great value for money resort and nice staff”
      OK the location, in the middle of nowhere, is a bit difficult to find and the access to the main gate is a bit tricky by high tide, but once inside the resort you'll find that it's a nice place to relax and spend some good time. The rooms are great and well equipped, clean bathroom and nice balcony to chill in front of the beach. You'll find the swimming pool very useful to refresh yourself on a hot day since the beach is veeery ugly. The other alternative is the free boat provided by the hotel that will take you (on a fixed schedule unfortunately) to the other side of the beautiful Chwaka bay to enjoy a very nice beach but be careful that once there, you'll have to spend the full day and purchase some expensive food from the restaurants there for lunch unless you take some food with you. The hotel restaurant buffet is very good and you have a large choice of yummy dishes to choose from for a fair price. The breakfast is fantastic and the staff are simply lovely.

      Perfect place for rest, great apartments and food to die for. The staff is really nice and friendly. You can easily travel around the island from that place or you can go for a swim in the ocean. I can't say a bad thing about that place, because I feel inlove with it!! I will come back some day.

      Excellent Value for Money for Active Tourists ”
      3 couples over 60 stayed in Chwaka Bay Resort May 7 to 20, 2016. Hotel management improoved comparing previous views. Staff helpfull and nice to you - client must talk to them free with smiles. Always use greeting ..JUMBO.. - it opens the dor / dont be nervous even after long journey. Rooms for price are OK, from time to time ask hotel reception for repairs as hotel is older. Repairs will be done by return. Be carefull for towels Not good for full day swiming but for discovering islands of Zanzibar. Full board for 17 USD per day is acceptable. 2016 hotel supplementary services prices are acceptable. If you decide to have your own car hired than i anvance and ask for local driving permit for 10 USD. Talk to policemen with smile and than they will smile as well. Driving in Zanzibar is OK, principal roads OK. Be very carefull of dangerous retarders, be carefull when local rush. Drivers on roads are giving signs when approaching. Local non paved roads are bad. Full day swimming in Zanzibar main Unguja Island available in Nungwi and surroundings only, driving distance from Chwaka Bay Resort one hour. Visit Safari Blue from Chwaka Bay Resort for only 30 USD including transfers, soft drinks, fruits and lunch /lobster.

      Overall good value for the money however for those seeking only beach, this is not the hotel, since is situated on the bay the beach is not enjoyable there is more than 300 meters to reach on a decent depth and the waters are full of seaweed therefore not blue and suitable for swiming .

      It is very good if one wants to go and relax. The beach is not the best in Zanzibar. Food is expensive, and the Indian food is not as spicy as Indian food, and all prices are in dollars. The setting is lovely.
