The beach is nice , one of the best beaches in Zanzibar . The restaurant was well organized and Abbas the manager was very friendly. The hotel has a college campus vibe so if you’re looking for a romantic trip this might not be the ideal setting .noise can last up until 2am. Last but not least if you are looking for diversity in demographic ..this might not be the ideal environment.

Sandies is a great resort! From your first encounter with Joyce, one knows the stay will be a pleasure. Great Wi-Fi with booster. Manicured landscape. Very SAFE! AWESOME fees from the beach front dinning facility with friendly staff. We stay in a bungalow with no Neighbours around except for one side. Great rain shower. My wife and will definitely come back!

10/10 Exceptional

We chose this property based on YouTube reviews and were happy our expectations were met. The food was better than expected and the grounds/wait staff was incredible. It was nice to have a few food staples at each meal like omelette station and pancake/crepes, or at dinner the pasta station and grill. Fresh fruits and salads at each meal also make us very happy. We would stay there again and would look forward to the specific beach the property has. The white powdery sand that leads to crystal clear water, swimmable in both low and high tide, was just wonderful. We opted to rent a car for the same price as a shuttle, and loved the freedom to do the spice tour and snorkel as we found the beach the boats launched from. Walking the length of the Nungwi beach, we were confirmed in our choice of property. It really was such a lovely escape.

Beautiful sunset
First time in Zanzibar, loved the place with some amazing scenery around. Specially the sunset. The hotel was descent although it is disappointing to see that none of the rooms had see view and our room was lacking a simple fridge and an iron. Apart from that the staff we amazing and very friendly. I would certainly recommend this place again to all our fiends and family.
