8/10 Very Good

We had a pleasent stay! our room was about a 100 ft away from the beach! ( the beach in th south east is not always nice, but they have two pools) The hotel could use some upgrades overall such as the beach & pool chairs are mostly ripped and dirty, the linen in the room are clean yet deteriorate it. The staff does a really good job with the resources they are provided and are very attentive of their guest!

Come for the beach, not the hotel
Very basic beach hotel that shows it age, many doors only close with excessive force and the breakfast buffet is covered every mornings with flies and wasps because it is open air. Very pricey transfer from and to the airport. But the beach is indeed fabulous!

Value for money
It is fantastic hotel to stay with family. Quite and peaceful location with friendly staff. A bit far from the ports and town and difficult to find transportation locally. Breakfast can be improved - with proper management or presentation. Staff/chef and management need to know the difference of being veterinarian - Veg meal can be contaminated by non-veg meal. The only hot meal during breakfast is mixed with non-veg, which is not friendly for Vegetarian customers.

2/10 Poor

Very disappointing. A hotel without A/C in the heat. No working internet connection and a manager/owner(?) who is defending himself like Basil Fawlty. After staying here we went straight to the Hilton appreciating good quality and service. The staff of the hotel was very friendly but the environment was not available for them to shine.

10/10 Exceptional

Friendly, clean and great staff
Extremely pleasant and friendly staff. Great selection of food and it changed at breakfast every day which was good. Excellent wifi even in room for me. Flowers on bed every day lovely touch. Activities well organised. Hotel am hour from stone town and quiet little village nearby but this is perfect if you're looking for a quiet getaway.

4/10 Fair

Only if you like seclusion
My stay was quite disappointing. If you don't mind drab, small windowed rooms and are looking for seclusion with no excursions then this hotel is an affordable option. The hotel is right on a little private beach although no windows face the beach and one can barely see out the little windows either way. The outside of the hotel looks quite renovated but the rooms are fairly depressing. The worst thing is that the hotel is so far away from anything that any excursion will include high taxi expenses, more than doubling the cost of an excursion if one is more centrally located. Staff were polite however a bit inexperienced. Wifi was very unstable and my room's air conditioner did not work. Food was quite good. Management was a mix between a lovely lady and a brusque man. I cannot recommend this hotel. Better to stay in Kizimkazi where you can find much better for the same price.

Not bad, could be better
La Madrugada Beach Hotel was a welcome getaway from the hustle and bustle of Stonetown. That said, it is quite isolated which is both good and bad. There was no one on the beach, constantly harassing us to purchase goods, but there was also no other real options for food, unless you got into a cab. The food was between average and good and it is all you can eat. The breakfast fruits and breads always had flies on them, which made them inedible to me. The bar service was absolutely miserable one of the three days we were there. Apparently some sort of mis-scheduling of the staff. In addition, there was only one type of whisky on offer, and not a very good one. They were unable to replace this bottle for a day. The pool and the beach area are kept clean and were very inviting, however there are not enough lounge chairs for all guests which made getting a chair quite competitive which I don't care for on holiday. Also the headrests are fixed, with no way to adjust the tilt. All in all, it's not a bad place, but they do have some work to do.

A comfortable hotel on Zanzibar.
I liked the location. Would say it's one of the most southern hotels. The beach wasn't all that wonderful as it had to be cleared of coral and they have left a few sharp bits. The wind wasn't as fierce either as some of the northern beaches. The swimming pools made up for the beach though. They were excellent. The service was fine and the food was good and everyone tried to be helpful.
