Beverages, food, hospitality, staff, tidyness and so on... no room for improvement! Beyond expectations. Romance pavilion was amazing. Especially the view when waking up. Compared to other hotels on Zanzibar, Melia stands out. Would 100% recommend.

Pros: great wifi, excellent hospitality, all inclusive food & beverage, private beach. Cons: room decor was a little basic for the expensive price tag, food was mediocre especially at the Jetty (don’t eat there tapas were awful - try the food at the pool or beach instead).
