    Excellent food at the restaurant, staff and owner very helpful (the owner gave us even a cooking station to cook in our bungalow!), all friendly. Hotel on the beach, very nice swimming pool, and the Jambiani people were very friendly. Our children were playing football with them every evening!

    Superb stay.

    Really nice modest cost beach resort. Staff quickly fixed a couple shortcomings in our room. Lovely pool, nice shaded areas. Nourshing brekkies. Restaurant a bit of a disappointment, chef needs more training, especiall in cooking fish. Overall, great value in lovelly setting.

    Exceeded Expectation

    IFA Beach resort/ hotel far exceeded our expectations.....we have travelled alot and stayed in many resorts/hotels and we can genuinely say that this is one of our best hotels we've stayed in especially when it comes to value for money.... What is evident from the resort is that their efforts are to create an environment for their guest to totally enjoy their stay and we can say that we felt it totally, what was also evident was that ALL staff are treated well behind the scene as you'll see they love their job... The one and only disappointing thing is we only stayed four nights and travelled north of Zanzibar, IFA Beach resort set the standard so high that the resort we booked into was so poor in comparison. Would I recommend IFA Beach Resort...100% yes... Be assured you can expect a return visit next time we are in Zanzibar..

    Je ne recommande pas

    A l'arrivée, la personne m'a juste montré ma chambre. Aucune info concernant le fonctionnement des choses tel que le bouton pour avoir de l'eau chaude, par exemple. Rien, non plus, sur l'accès à la plage, la piscine, au petit déjeuner. A part me montrer la chambre, rien. Je n'ai même pas eu le temps de lui demander quoique ce soit, elle s'est barrée. Accueil médiocre. Concernant les nuisances également, au loby et à proximité, chacun fait sa vie, rien faire des gens qui essaient tant bien que mal de pouvoir dormir ou de profiter des chants des oiseaux... Toutefois, Piscine et petit dej, biens.

    Gepflegte, kleine Hotelanlage (12 Zimmer) mit sehr freundlichem Personal. Die Zimmer sind groß und modern gehalten, inklusive Ventilator und Klimaanlage. Die Zimmer sind auf einzelne Bungalows verteilt zwischen Strand und Palmen bzw. Garten. Direkt hinter dem Pool beginnt dann auch schon der (öffentliche) Strand. Aufgrund von Ebbe und Flut ist ein ganztägiges Schwimmen im Meer nicht möglich, jedoch frühmorgens und spätnachmittags. Es wird jeden Morgen ein abwechslungsreiches Frühstück angeboten inkl. frischem Obstteller und frischen Saft. Wer keinen Massentourismus erleben möchte, ist hier gut aufgehoben.

    Dårlig ledelse og gode medarbejdere

    Overordnet set var vores ophold fantastisk. Det eneste som var problemet, var, at manageren og ejeren slet ikke var til nogen hjælp. Jeg havde booket et double room med balkon med udsigt til resortet, men vi fik et lille værelse med et enkelt lille vindue i stedet. Ingen hjælp var at finde, da manageren ikke var til stede, og ejeren sagde, at han intet med værelserne at gøre. Mit ophold var fra d. 26/3-6/4, og fra den 1/4 skulle poolen renoveres. Det var vi ikke blevet informeret om på forhånd, faktisk kun dagen før, så det var ret dårlig stil, da vi havde valgt hotellet pga pool. De prøvede at bilde os ind, at det havde stået på hotellets hjemmeside længe, men da de skulle “bevise” det for os, var det en video af hjemmesiden, som de havde optaget samme dag (onsdag d. 3/4). Alle andre gæster på hotellet, havde også problemer. Udover det så var servicen af resten af medarbejderne fantastisk. De var alle super søde, hjælpsomme hvor de kunne, og sjove. Hotellet var pænt og rent med charmerende værelser. Ville dog vælge at komme tilbage en anden gang.
