8/10 Very good

Very quiet, lovely place. Food seemed overpriced.
A lovely stay. Very peaceful. Not a ton of lounge chairs in sunny spots but there's always the beach. Nice to borrow bikes and snorkel gear. We ate next door (Zanzibar retreat) every night of our stay cheaper prices and amazing food.

Location on the beach was great, they had a beautiful pool, cool spots to sit and gaze at the ocean, a good restaurant, and lovely people. Close to other really good restaurants, too! Our room was clean and fine, but rather closed in. However, it was the “standard” room. An upgrade would be advisable if staying more than one night. They were much more open and airy! Overall, a great find’

great hotel, but expensive
One of the best hotels we've seen in Zanzibar. Staff are friendly and helpful. Great breakfast. Lunch and dinner are also great, with fresh food and a welcome mix of local dishes, Italian and fusion. But in terms of food and drinks it's also the most expensive place we've seen, charging almost twice as much compared to smaller or more local places (e.g. over 4 USD for a beer).

Great place
We had a fantastic room directly facing the sea. Everything was perfect, but the restaurant which was disappointing.

This is a gem. The manager and staff were simply wonderful. Calm, attentive, caring in a very modest and warm way. The resort is relatively small but beautiful and very well kept. Bungalows have no AC and are quite basic, which gives a laid back and relaxed atmosphere. I would perhaps not recommend Zoi for a lively family with energetic kids, but I am sure they would also be very warmely received!
