Relaxing Time
Beautiful little spot on a quiet stretch of beach. Room had a few general maintenance issues but otherwise clean & comfortable. We wanted to be right on the beach & that's what we got so our priorities were met. Staff all very friendly & genuinely wanted you to enjoy your stay. Excellent food at the restaurant. A nice little get-away for 4 nights.

8/10 Very good

The rooms were lovely, the resort was very relaxing and I always felt that me and my belongings were safe. The beach is perfect and it's nice that you can wander to a couple other bars and restaurants.

Lovely few days enjoying the beach in Urea
Our stay at Urea was what we expected from the reviews - the staff are very friendly and couldn’t have been better service. The price is reasonable for the services, our hut was close to the beach but breakfast is relatively limited and there is building work going on. However, for the price we paid, we had a great stay and could enjoy the other hotels along the same strip.

6/10 Good

Generally the hotel services are good. We were just dissatisfied with the staff who made us shift to a different room of lower standard in preference to the other guest without prior communication.

Fantastisk atmosfære på Moonshine
Rolig, avslappende og idyllisk hotel. Alle ansatte var veldig hyggelig, smilende og imøtekommende. Det er en helt egen atmosfære på dette hotellet. Lite og rolig sted, godt utgangspunkt for opplevelser i resten av Zanzibar.
