Amazing stay!
Our stay at Zan View was amazing! We had decided to take a few days in Zanzibar after our busy week safari and I came across this hotel. The staff are wonderful and super friendly. They always greet you with a smile and nothing is too much trouble for them. The management team are also so so nice! We were shown around the hotel and how to access the beach bar when we arrived which I’ve never really experienced before and it was so lovely and welcoming. They also plan events you can take part in on the evenings such as bingo night, food specials, uno tournament etc. The hotel itself has a small pool and restaurant area, with an upstairs mezzanine overlooking the village and beach. To access the beach you walk through a small local village (no more than 5mins) which is a lovely way to interact with the locals. You pass by 2 small craft shops and I highly recommend having a chat with the men who own them and encourage you to buy something! They are wonderful friendly and trustworthy gents. The beach bar is also great! The food from both restaurants was really good! I especially liked the Spag Bol! The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Air con is a must in zanzibar! And all the rooms have this and a fan. The beds are huge and have mosquito nets (also a must!) The showers are fine, I don’t think you will find super great showers in Tanzania anyway!. Overall this hotel is great! And good value for money too! Would highly recommend staying here!
