I traveled with my wife during Easter holiday, April, and we had a fabulous time at the Queen Zanzibar Hotel. We booked a garden view room, it was spacious and clean. Staff was super friendly and smiley, from reception to restaurant. We had half board with dinner included and we did not regret for a second. HB offered a la carte menu with 3 courses and ir was delicious. The beach in from of the hotel was also good. We definitely recommend Queen Zanzibar!

Fantastic hotel.
Fantastic place. I was on a solo trip and the staff made me feel really welcome and even helped me arrange a scooter for the day. The beach is quiet and beautiful. I managed to run in the mornings along the beach which was perfect. I went the the other more popular side and must say that I preferred the more quiet side. The food was fantastic. If you’re anything other than white prepare for the other guests to stare at you like an alien which was annoying but other than that the stay was fantastic.

Beachfront property, rooms are removed from beaches but top floor has beach view. Beach is long and beautiful but many sea urchins and low tides makes it not swimmable at all times. Proximity to Mnembe island however means you can go there snorkeling every day. Restaurant is very good. Breakfast buffet is plentiful. Staff meets every need and is very friendly. I was there during low season and it was calm and restful.

This was a Solo trip for me and This hotel was by far the best resort I’ve stayed at! Everything was 10s across the board ! The staff are superb and the most respectful group of people. The hotel is designed beautifully , the views are sensational and the comfy vibes naturally balanced throughout the garden and hotel yard is beyond well kept ! The food is also to die for , I enjoyed every meal I had during my entire Holiday!
