10/10 Exceptional

Very laid back place, but assistance is always available at the front desk and at the restaurant. The pool was clean and a nice size. Our room was nice, with great AC and a nice balcony with lounge chairs. It was great for a family of 4. Ocean not great for swimming (lots of seaweed), but great for beach combing (always) and looking for interesting sea life (like itty bitty hermit crabs) during low tide. We had a late evening flight so we stayed that last day until 1800. They even gave us a room to shower in before our shuttle back to the airport. Great massage too.

My sister and I had a fantastic holiday at Ifa Beach Resort. The staff was incredibly kind and accommodating. We book several tours through the hotel and ate most of our meals at the delicious restaurant. The room was very clean and comfortable. The swimming pool was a dream. I highly recommend staying at Ifa Beach Resort on our trip to Jambiani!

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..

Coup de cœur. L'établissement était parfaitement équipé, très bien situé, la piscine est très belle, on a le combo piscine et vue sur la mer qui est à 30 secondes de l'hôtel. Le restaurant de l'hôtel est plutôt bon, même s'il y a des chats affamés qui n'hésitent pas à être agressifs (mais le serveur peut les éloigner). Il y a une bonne ambiance dans l'hôtel, on se sent vraiment en vacances. J'en garde de merveilleux souvenirs et je reviendrai, c'est sûr.

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.
