    Big large rooms in stand alone houses. Silent place due to only 8 such rooms. Perfect cleaning. Great breakfast nicely served by competent and friendly staff. Dennis,the manager very professional and helpful. Beach accessible via some stone steps. Walking distance on the lovely beach to several bars and restaurants. We truly enjoyed the place.

    Not a T.V. in the whole hotel.. On a wonderfull beach..Down a dirty back road off the main road..The two pools were used by noisey "day visitors" Very expencive beer compared to nearby hotels..Zanzibar is a small island surrounded by fantastic beaches,however...after 200 meters inland the whole island is ONE BIG TIP

    Was ok! ”

    Room wasn’t ready on arrival. They didn’t even know we booked even though it was booked in advance online. Room was fine, breakfast was decent, check out at 10am is a bit early, location is a little out of Paje but nothing major if you’re up for a little walk. All was ok, passable, would stay again but wasn’t thrilled by it, saw better places cheaper.

    A PIECE OF PARADISE ON EARTH!!”

    The description and photos of this resort are so under stated and do not reflect its true beauty and excellence !! The staff are exceptional and are the heart and sole of Ocean Blue. They are friendly, eager to please and go out of their way to make your stay extraordinary! The location in my opinion is the best in Paje - away from the hustle and bustle but a close walk to all the activities available in Paje. The 8 bungalows (I would call them Villas) are huge, clean and well maintained and have the most exceptional views of the ocean. The private verandas give you the opportunity to relax and escape the sun and is the best place to enjoy the cool evening breeze while sipping on a coctail. The 2 swimming pools are clean and very welcoming on a hot and humid day during low tide in Paje. To Dennis, Ramadani and Paulina I shall miss you all but will definitely be back soon. HAKUNA MATATA THIS IS BY FAR MY PIECE OF PARADISE ON EARTH!!!

    Normal resort for taking a rest”

    Not expensive than others but there were ANTS a lot and Mosquitos even in the beds. Hot water shower was good but pressure of water was quite low so hard to wash. View from room and restaurant was nice. Staff was not really kind, they were always serious and they were not in reception, stay somewhere else around there.

    Nice, quiet place.”

    We had an ocean view suite and it was a really nice, big room. Two pools, good breakfast, very nice staff. I think we were the only ones staying there so it was very quiet, but it's just a short stroll down the beach to other spots in Paje.

    Clean, quiet, nice staff”

    Ocean Blue is located adjacent to the beach, with 8 cement bungalows which are stand alone. The rooms are spacious and clean, with small balconies that wrap around two sides of the bungalow. The pools are small, but do the trick. The beach is clean and quiet, with the tides coming right up to the hotel at high tide. The rooms are very clean, with a turn down service in the evening to spray the room with insect repellent and pull the mosquito nets down. The hotel is located at the northern end of Paje, but is just a short walk to other hotels/restaurants/bars. The breakfast is pretty good, with a menu to order as much or as little as you’d like (fruit juice, tea, coffee, cereal, toast, eggs etc). The western options are average and I wouldn’t recommend, but the local food is quite nice but a little expensive. But this is standard on the east coast where options are limited. I paid a USD$40 taxi each way. The hotel itself is very quiet, I was the only guest.

    Perfect location for relaxing holidays”

    Nice small hotel, just at a seafront. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good restaurant at the hotel and many places to eat nearby. Great diving shop closeby. Great long sandy-coral beach, but good idea to use seashoes to protect yourself from seaurchins. Coast is a subject to low and high tides and water level differences are large, but do not be disappointed if it is low tide upon arrival, water will come back soon. I had a great and relaxing time there and I would reccomend this place to anyone wanted to have relaxing and stressless holidays.

    new wing of Zanzibar Ocean Blue resort.”

    We have been in the new wing of Zanzibar Ocean BLue for 16 nights. The new wing is close to the other resort. It has large clean rooms, all with sight-seeing. The resort has a large swimmingpool with poolbar. Because we were the only guests the swimmingpool-bar was closed but the waitress came every hour to ask or we want something to drink of eat. The staff isvery helpfull en they are lovely. If you want to go for a trip to Zanzibar don't hesitate to book a room in the new wing of Zanzibar Ocean Blue Resort. The new wing has a facebookpage with a loth of pictures.

    Unser Aufenthalt war sehr erholsam. Wir hatten das Bungalow direkt am Strand. Die Zimmer sind sehr gross und schön, mit einer eigenen Terrasse. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und das Haus bekannt für eine gute Küche. Der Manager Humphrey spricht sehr gut Englisch und ist sehr hilfsbereit. Auch das Personal spricht gut Englisch und ist mit viel Aufmerksamtkeit dabei jeden Wunsch zu erfüllen. Da die Anlage nur über 8 Bungalows verfügt, ist es ruhig und bietet viel Erholungsfaktor. Für Paare, die ihre Zweisamkeit geniessen möchten, ist dieses Hotel sicherlich ideal.

    Paje roundaboutから少し遠い、このエリアでは一番奥。地元の人に尋ねても知っている人は3人に1人もいないかも。ビーチのすぐそば、静か。 コーヒー・テイーサービス、電気ポットあり。シャワーのみ。 部屋は広い、朝食もまず良し。蚊帳あり。 一番の問題はアクセス、GPS機能があれば問題はないかもしれないが。
