  • 8.0.Very good

    A nice place for some relaxation

    Repeat visit (as we stayed here about 12 years ago as well), still good value and a good choice for a few days break (at the end of a couple of weeks viewing wildlife on the main land). Room was comfortable, and more spacious than most hotel rooms. Staff were friendly and helpful, food was varied. Amenities (not that we used much ) and location seemed good. Will definitely be considering this hotel if we travel to Zanzibar again.

    Great place to stay in Kiwengwa

    This is a great place to stay on Zanzibar’s northeast coast. The setting is gorgeous, and the rooms are of high standard. The food is also excellent. All in all, a great option.

    Loved the African feel of the property, with the luxury of a European resort. Spacious and well laid out, the rooms have plenty of privacy and great aspect.

    Stayed with all inclusive, it was overall a really good hotel with good food, drinks and service! Unclear in the beginning with which resturant you could use, but other than that it was really good! Friendly staff and always clean!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Bluebay Resort has a wonderful green territory. The hotel is located on a very good beach. It is very exotic, lots to see and explore. It is great for walking and running. There is a very pleasant sea view from the most common places (restaurants, cafes, swimming pool). Breakfasts and dinners are good enough with a good variety. We liked our pool dinner under the skies. Masai, dance groups and other shows were really great. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. We liked to sit outside on a balcony looking at blossoming bushes and trees. We would like to thank the hotel management for taking good care of us and there client oriented approach.
