Fabulous 8,8 From 37 reviews

Very good 8,0
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.

Perfect for relaxing
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!

Fair 4,0
poor quality
Hotel Staff are very rood, especially at the pool bar they are not interested in you, any other places are same... if you mist anything by 1 min they says time is passed and no service, By the way its all inclusive but they give you most poor quality drinks ever ...Never again...

Beautiful Bluebay
A lovely restful stay at the stunning Bluebay Resort on a magical stretch of the Indian Ocean in Zanzibar in October 2018. Staff was so very pleasant and accommodating, food was plentiful and very good, beautifully presented, and the two pools were crystal clear with the perfect temperature water. I loved every moment of my stay there.

Perfect hotel in Zanzibar
The hotel was amazing! The beach with perfect sand, with interesting tides, still enabling swimming. The room was very clean, the double bed HUGE. The variety in the buffet restaurant was very good. The stuff was very nice and friendly. The hotel is spacious, and does't feel crowded. We enjoyed our stay very much

Good 6,0
Only OK.
Overall a bit disappointing. The photos show the best bits of the resort. Service was slow. Food was generally ok (only ok) but the breakfast area felt a little dirty. Entertainment was good apart from a rather out of tune singer that sang every night (they had other entertainment too). Rooms were comfortable and clean apart from the odd cockroach but that goes with the nature of the surroundings so not something we were concerned with. Beach is lovely and pool area good. All inclusive package is the same restaurant 3xper day (buffet only) - essentially this isn't what I count as all inclusive when they have, and advertise, various dining options. Don't be caught out on this as it isn't anywhere on the booking websites or their own hotel website that this is the case. Very misleading!!
