I visited the resort in February 2017 and was really disappointed. Absolutely everything was Italian. I found the resort extremely noisy with Italian entertainment all day long. I found the Italians to be rather obnoxious and rude with them just seating themselves down at you table without even asking. The food in the big hall was also simply Italian with...

We visited this hotel for one day stay only. We took a cab from Stone Town, the only difficulty we faced was explaining to the taxi driver the location of this hotel as it seems it's name has recently been changed to VOI Kiwengwa (previously it was called Villagio Bravo), though the driver was smart and managed to drop us...

We had a very swift check in with Rocky and our room was ready for us upon arrival in the morning. The resort is beautifully maintained. Our room was very spacious but basic. The bathroom was lovely. Our only comments were that there was no TV and no tea making facilities. Also, the bed was very uncomfortable. The pool area...

Hotel offers the best entertainment we've seen so far. Italian stuff speak very little English, but it's not an obstacle you can't overcome. As a young couple we've had a blast, although I've seen old Czech couples suffer from what they called "too loud entertainment". Located on the beautiful beach, depth of the water depends on the time od 60...

A piece of Italy in Zanzibar! Beautiful location great room, Italian towels linen etc. and amazing food. This is a big resort and can cater for roughly 500 people, so not the best option if you want to be isolated. As per previous reviews, the resort is overwhelmingly Italian, so not the best option if you want to be included...
