Sandies, a slice of pradise!
Chris is the GM and his wife Audrey is his assistant. Both have a great deal of hotel experience and it shows in every aspect of the operation. The staff are extremely pleasant, helpful and efficient. I was on a bed and breakfast and occupied a “superior room”. The room was comfortable and somewhat “sheik” with a huge bathroom. Although I did not opt for the all inclusive, I took all of my meals at the hotel and would definitely do all inclusive next time.. The restaurant overlooks the Indian Ocean and has great views. The food is not only very good, but there is an extensive menu. Each dinner has a different theme ie French night , Italian, Indian and also poolside bbq which was a treat. The pool is large and well kept but the bonus is the ocean. The beach is available even at high tide and there are absolutely no rocks anywhere and the beach experience is a true pleasure. I would also mention that each staff member wore their masks 100% of the time which made all feel comfortable Simply put, Sandies is a wonderful place and the price is right. Although I was a single, there was a nice mix of families, couples and some in between. I travel a great deal for both business and pleasure and read a lot of reviews. I become almost skeptical when I read a “too gleeful review”. In this case, take my word and give Sandies a chance.

Exceptional beach and food
Exceptional service on a beautiful beach however AC is typical of the area which means it's a bit lackluster at times however manageable nonetheless.

A good stay
A very nice all-inclusive hotel on Nungwi beach, the superior room is great. It lacks amenities like a fridge. Overall the room is clean and comfy. Staff are good except for a few in the restaurant who want to sit you where they want rather than where you want. Glasses at the bar are worn out and food is not that good, very basic especially lunch and dinner.

What a fantastic hotel. From the second you arrive right up until the minute you leave everything is perfect. The staff are exceptionally friendly and the food served here is exceptional.

Local tavern noise a problem
Family rooms are at the back of the resort and noise from the tavern in the local town is a major problem - loud music goes on all night This is a "work in progress" hotel and we didn't think it was 4*. Having said that, the location is fantastic with lovely beach and sea. Food is delicious and varied - plenty of seafood and attentive Chef always on hand. Staff are still being trained but are keen to please and always happy and smiling

Enjoyable stay- room for improvement
This hotel is really well located at Nungwi beach. From the airport it does take over an hour to get there and there is some dirt roads but from doing tours this can’t be avoided. From checkin to checkout and everything in between the staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were simple with a lovely bathroom with a double shower. As the hotel has not yet been completed it is missing a few things like a fridge and hair dryer. My one complaint about the room would be the bed sheets. They were not very soft and actually felt like they were scratching your skin. The buffet restaurant was great. Lots of options and really fresh. The ala crate portion is not yet open. The bar, pool and beach sun beads were all wonderful. The only improvement I could suggest is maybe drink service to people poolside, not that it’s that far to go to the bar and they will bring them to you. Also, coming from Australia where there are no smoking areas etc I would suggest this was implemented near the pool or on the sand beach chairs- whether it just be a small section or something. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. There is still construction/renovation going on but I doubt that will be forever. The staff just need to make the effort to tell you and apologise.

Es el hotel que más nos gustó de Zanzibar. Mi pareja y yo nos alojamos en régimen de todo incluido durante dos noches. Tanto las habitaciones como las instalaciones son perfectas y amplias. El restaurante tiene unas vistas impresionantes, que durante desayuno y comida puedes disfrutar. Y por la noche, escuchar el mar mientras comes es espectacular. La comida es correcta y variada, aunque siempre habían muchas moscas. La animación de la noche está bastante bien y te hacen participar en todas ellas. En la playa, los típicos beach boys, son muy pesados.

Африканский рай с европейским уклоном.
От отеля остались только самые радужные воспоминания. Европейский менеджмент ощущается во всем - начать с того, что наше такси впустили на территорию только после того, как сверились со списком и убедились, что мы действительно забронировали номер с этой даты. Заселили сразу, хотя мы приехали в 10 часов утра. Номер отличный - все функционально и красиво, на втором этаже, с просторной верандой, качественная косметика - шампунь, кондиционер, гель для душа и крем для тела. Кормили очень вкусно, что мне понравилось - нет ничего лишнего, качественные блюда из хороших продуктов, много морепродуктов: кальмары, осьминоги, крабы, креветки. Пляж великолепный - белый песок, прозрачная вода необыкновенного цвета, удобные лежаки с матрасиками. Моя супруга с удовольствием занималась стрейчингом, авкааэробикой, йогой. Ну а вечером красивейший закат, у бара жвая музыка, джин тоник и Пино Колада. Отель однозначно рекомендую, есть с чем сравнивать.
