Nothing as there was no room available. The manager Kelvin left us waiting 3 hours without informing us that there was no room! Another couple from journey had the same experience. He said his extension rooms would be finished in 2 days! We went to see them! No electricity No water! Water pipes, bare electricity wires & cement everywhere! No where near completion!!! He ended taking us to the Amaan Hotel at 4pm! (Our flight was 9:05) so we missed the whole 1st day of holiday! There were only 2 nights we could stay as they were also fully booked!! This hotel room had no working shower & the surrounds outside were dirty & unfinished near our room! I was upset after our other Expedia holiday experience in July so this as well caused a lot of stress!!! I tried all evening to get hold of Expedia & one person said she would call me back but never did. It took all day!! Expedia are inconsistent & unhelpful for the second time this year on holiday! Toilet in reception area had no door to the toilet no sink to wash hands & was very very dirty

Worst hotel on Zanzibar for the price they charge
A scam , a building site , false advertising, pictures on your website did not match the property , not on the beach , on a busy dirt road , breakfast full of flies and cheap instant on a coffee island , we left after one night and will put in a claim , we got a sea facing on the beach room for the same price room broken door ‚ bathroom needs , 1 sheet no blanket , one bedside reading light , will send pictures with my mail as soon as I get home and submit my claim

Not worth the money ... although lovely staffs
100 usd per night doesn't provide internet and cable TV in the room as promised .. TV does exist but not the channels ... 5 mins walk from the beach which is great but a little unsafe feeling while coming back in pitch dark after dinner, as dinner not served in the hotel. the hotel arranges cheap snorkeling tour to mnemba islands, a must do ....

5/5 Excellent

Zanzibar star resort is one of the most amazing place we stayed in zanzibar Island 🏝. We spent 2 nights and we had a great time from the service to the friendly staff Team. The one thing we liked the most is the delicious breakfast, it was great so many good food and fruits. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed and the whole place was surrounded by a beautiful garden and the pool at the very front of our room. The beach was about 5 minutes walk and it was great with so many activities to do and in the evening, there were people performing their cultural dance randomly at the beach which i loved watching.
