8/10 Very Good

The staff was excellent and the food was delicious. The teception staff needs to improve. We were always asked to sit down and the would come tomus instead of taking care right away. Also interestingly we had to pay bottles of wine, where the samr by glass is included in thr all inclusive.

10/10 Exceptional

The property is at the southern end of the island. A peaceful location with stunning scenery and sympathetic architecture. The hotel has fantastic amenities including several pools and private beaches, a pier, a turtle nursery and a well equipped gym. The food was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. Plenty of excursions were available from the hotel and good quality entertainment was provided most evenings. The only issue at the moment is the access road which is 5km of very bumpy dirt track, however the road is being rebuilt and should be completed in the next couple of months

Nice resort but the staff not useful enough
We booked the Honeymoon villa. The amount for 3 nights is considerable and we also advised the property we are making our wedding in the resort. The villa was comfortable and had all facilities we wanted, even more - a beach area, a jacuzzi, our own exit to the beach and 2 spacious rooms. However the staff was very difficult to communicate to. Before arriving to the property I had to make tons of phone calls to get a wedding package quote. Well, they couldn`t provide what we expected - we received no answer and had to organize the wedding by ways of a local wedding planner. Even though I found the communication between the wedding planner and the hotel difficult and they needed our assistance too. The only one who was always kind and caring was our butler Kefas. He was always there when we needed him and we received explicit service from him while the rest of the staff was just standing and watching. I assume that the property is experiencing staff decrease. Otherwise I cannot explain why they have so little people. Overall a very nice resort with beautiful surrounding but the staff can spoil your holiday especially if you decide to make your wedding there.

2/10 Poor

in such a short stay from the 27th-31st I never thought I could be so disappointed in a resort. I would give the “resort” zero stars. Coming from someone that travels the world pretty regularly and even stayed at multiple resorts while staying in Zanzibar, I can say that fruit and spice is a waste of money and probably one of the worst resorts in Zanzibar itself, it is nowhere near a 5 star resort. Aesthetically pleasing yes, but with staff were horrid,you have to chase down for service and never go the extra mile to ensure your stay is going well. Meal times aren’t consistent- you get told times as you arrive to later be changed by 30/45mins because they aren’t ready. If there is a way to get out of providing you service, the staff will find a way to not have to serve you. Forget about receiving what you ask for while at the reception desk as they will tell you they will bring it to you but never will. Not only do they have no phones in the rooms to be able to phone the reception desk for assistance, which if that isn’t already inconvenient enough and just shows how lazy the resort is, you have to walk a way to the desk and still not receive what it is you need. Food options were less than appetising- the Hilton hotel in nungwis food is 12x better and more options and their staff are amazing. Want to order an alcoholic beverage? Be ready to wait 30 min minimum if not longer for a margarita. the Hilton hotel by doubletree in nungwi puts this place to shame.
