Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 December 2017

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the resort. The facilities are well maintained and clean. The staff is very helpful and very welcoming.
The beach is incredible, low or high tide. The room are correct, the beds are a bit hard, but it's common in Zanzibar.

The staff was unfriendly we constantly got the feeling they didn’t want to serve or help us. On the very first day they tried to make us pay for our whole stay again even though we had already paid. Fortunately, we had our bank statement about the payment in 2 copies( they will ask for one so make sure you have another one). Also, be careful when you order any food or drunk because they will try to give you a massive bill at the and of your stay so I would recommend to pay at the end of each day. For the cheap price I didn’t expect much but the staff be friendly and helpful.

Beach is completely unswimmable because of the thousands of sea urchins and the massive waves when it’s high tide.

Food was alright but it was overpriced. I recommend to walk to the other side of Nungwi. There’s plenty of restaurants with fair prices and excellent food.

We spent four nights at Tanzanite and wish we had stayed longer. The staff is amazing and they ended up as our African family. They did their outmost to help us, and they made the stay unforgettable. The resort and its facilities exceeded our expectations.

Shoutout to the three zucchini's, Didi and Easter for putting a smile on our face every day. We will come back to this resort next time we are in Zanzibar!

We had a lovely stay at Tanzanite, the hotel is clean, food not bad and the staff were very friendly. It is however pretty isolated and a 15 to 20 minute walk to the restaurants and bars with a sand beach.
