Best place at Zanzibar east coast
Amazing place to stay in Zanzibar. One of the few places the pics are not doing justice - place is even more beautiful in real life. Pros: amazing staff - very professional and friendly. David especially was very helpful attending to all of our needs. The hotel is very intimate (only a few on each of the three complex), right on the beach and designed tastefully. Close to many nice local restaurants (we really liked Fadhil). Cons: AC is not so great, the hotel prices for attraction and taxis are very high. They charge 95 USD for return taxi from the airport, while I easily managed to book a private luxury taxi for just 50 USD.

Everything about this stay was good. We only had a few things which we would have liked to change. The food was delicious unfortunately the portions were small and in order to make it a full meal you had to have a starter. Once you did this the bill started to climb rapidly and the cost become too much. We ate there a few times but tended to shop around more. Another point of concern and to be honest a real disappointment was the "others" who occupied the space. I dont mean the other people in the villas but the resort behind us Green Z. I checked the cost and it was less than half what we paid foe the same nights yet they ate free breakfast with us, their kids ran around the same resort and used the pool, and the parents and kids took up all the lounge chairs. Several days we never got anywhere to relax in the sun because all the chairs were in use and over half were from these 'others". It got to the point I had to go out at 8am and put towels down on chairs for us to have a place to relax. I dont think it's fair to pay so much and have to share with others paying half the price with all the same privileges or even getting the things I assumed came with our rental. Overall service was fantastic, staff and management were wonderful! Just 2 minor points would have really made this stay an eleven.

Perfect stay
Incredibly friendly managers that were super helpful to give us tips. You can also use the kayaks and bikes to get around the beach. Food was pretty excellent and staff was extremely friendly. Apartments are very nicely designed and bright and airy. The beach in Paje is nicer but the hotels there are not near this level. I’d recommend taking a taxi everyday to Paje instead. Wish we had stayed at Jambiani Villas longer

Lovely stay in one of the best hotels in the area
We enjoyed our stay despite all the terrible weather! The owner was welcoming and helpful whenever we needed anything. Everywhere was kept very clean and sanitary, gave the impression of being a big step up from anywhere else we went on the island in terms of basic western standards. All staff were pleasant to interact with and, with our early arrival, we really appreciated being allowed to grab a quick bite and drink as breakfast wound down then granted access to our room early. The pool area is nice and there were just enough sunbeads. Bike rental was useful and easy too. Breakfast was very good for a hotel of such modest size. Well beyond what might be expected with decent quality and variety as well as fresh cooked options. Dinner was more expensive than any other local options, price paid for convenience as the food was good but not remarkable. The room was a very good size. Especially liked the kitchen and bathroom off the entrance room. Made it very easy to keep sandy feet and shoes out of the bedroom. One way glass for the windows is a clever touch too. Appreciated how quiet the fan and a/c were.

Indian Ocean paradise on the beach
What an incredible hotel, right on the most beautiful indian ocean beach, which you pretty much have to yourself for most of the day, in the middle of a local fishing village. Service is great and very warm and friendly, d breakfast and dinner or lunch are included. It was an absolute pleasure to spend the week here and I would return in a heart beat.

Great for families!
Jambiani Villas is a beautiful stay. Clean pool and grounds, perfect villa for a family stay. Jambiani beach is a lovely beach that is popular with the fishermen and Seaweed farmers. Tide goes way out, and water level is pretty low for a full swim. Exploring the low tide is pretty great, though, lots of fish, urchins and critters. There is a lovely restaurant in the Villas and also good food nearby. They help organize cars and excursions so everything is easy once you are there. There is a kitchen if you feel inspired to cook in villa.

So much potentials but poor executions
We were disappointed with our stay. Upon arrival, the key to our villa was missing, which prevented us from leaving the villa with our luggage inside. We were promised by the staff that another key would be brought to us immediately, but instead we were made to wait 2+ hours. Security guards were present on the premises, but because they were wearing normal clothing, we could not tell that they were security and were startled when they knocked on our door fairly late in the evening (in pitch black darkness). As two females traveling alone, this did not contribute to our feeling safe in the villas or area. The front desk constantly failed to deliver on most requests made on options they offer. We ordered breakfast to be delivered to our villa, but that was met with no breakfast. Housekeeping never replaced our daily bottle water use for teeth brushing. We were told that we could be checked out from their restaurant at a pre-agreed-upon time, only to be told (at check-out time) that I read we would need to walk an extra 15 minutes to the front desk to check out. Laundry service was ordered, but we had to call housekeeping to remind them to bring the finished laundry back to us. Had we not made this call, our load would’ve been forgotten; the load came back damp, instead of completely dry as promised (as housekeeping has a drying machine). Lastly, many switches and items were broken or non-functional in our villa.
