Value
La Madrugada Beach Hotel & Resort *** with its 37 rooms is located at the South-East coast of Zanzibar in Makunduchi, which is an amazing coral village with white sand beaches that go down in gentle slope on a turquoise background. Great location to relax from the business life, not recommended for people who search an exiting night life. The location is also perfect for various sorts of beach activities, but also an excellent base to explore the island. Amenties: 2 swimming pools, private beach, SPA and small Gym on site, most rooms with A/C and oceanview, free WiFi, Tour desk.

We spent two weeks at La Madrugada and absolutely loved it. Breakfast is simple but good enough, nice lunch and dinner menu as well. The nature is beautiful and good for a snorkelling session. The rooms were always clean and if there was anything wrong, housekeeping came to check

During our stay here we were first met by really helpful and accommodating staff. The people who work here are very welcoming and friendly, which we really liked. The room we had, needed a bit of attention. The toilet was missing a handle, there was sand on our floor as well when

Dear Charlie, First and foremost, thank you very much for sharing your constructive feedback on your recent stay at La Madrugada Beach Resort. We regret that we were not able to provide you a fully wonderful experience owing to these issues and rest assured that we will take these into consideration for the continuous improvement of our facilities and amenities. On the other hand we would also like to express our side of the story. Our normal check in time is 12pm, but you have arrived 2 am in the morning, which you did not inform the hotel of. For this reason, you could not check into the correct room you booked. You have also refused to pay any extra fees, or breakfast. We change our towels every 3rd day, and upon your request we changed your towels and linen daily. The more people book tours, and go together, the cheaper it gets per person We strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer, therefore your feedback is very important to us. We very much appreciate the time you spent with us and we thank you for the rest of the compliments. Yours Sincerely,

Thankyou for yo response. Really appreciate it . 1) I wanted to also ask the cost if I wanted to include alcoholic drinks , and sea food plasters for two or weather I have to pay more to upgrade from the soft all inclusive. This helps with the budgeting to accommodate other activities as we will be traveling just 2 adults. 2) I’m guessing breakfast is included in the soft package. Thanks . P/s sorry it seems I put a -1 by mistake. I clicked the wrong button .
Hi Musa, the soft all inclusive does not include alcoholic drinks or seafood. Our prices for beer are 3$ at 500ml bottles, house wines are at 4$ per glass, seafood is from around 20$ per person, depending on the kind. Hope this helps

You get for lunch 1 dish + 1 side order and for dinner 1 dish + 2 side orders. Prawns, lobster, seafood plater and dishes meant for 2 excluded For any other question feel free to contact us again.
