Gorgeous, relaxing getaway
Worth every cent. Definitely recommend the all-inclusive so that you can just sit back and enjoy it all! The hotel itself is gorgeous, as is nearby Gabi Beach. There are so many places where you can relax and enjoy a beautiful view. It even rained for a few hours during my trip, and I still enjoyed having a drink by the library bar, or sitting out at the beach while watching the sky darken then lighten back up. The place is a haven for relaxing, indulging and restoring!

Good but overall experience could have been better
Staff were friendly and in general very nice people. Management and staff did rounds around the resort asking guests if they were having a good time. However, quite a few times, the staff mixed up our orders and/or we had to wait a long time to get it. Also, no wifi in most guest rooms and the beach is not walking distance from main area of resort - they provide a free buggy ride over. On a side note, I've been a business traveler for many years (though this one was for pleasure) and I found this hotel management one of the most stringent I've ever come across in terms of charging every pennies worth, even when they caused certain inconveniences. It soured some of the experience of staying there.

We had a very nice family vacation. The hotel is beatiful and clean Gabi beach is not good enough. Not alive and not interesting. The jetty restaurant is too quiet and too dark. No music. Too bad because it has a big potential. Pool waitresses and bartenders need to learn more about alcohol : gave me beer with ice once , and cold red wine... The hotel workers are very nice and kind. The food is top class! We had a great time!

I enjoyed it thououghly. I was with a person who was handicapped so they accommodated us by moving us to a 1st floor room. fixing the elevator would help. The service was wonderful!

Over-the-top resort experience
This resort is all about the shockingly beautiful Zanzibar sun, beach and sky. It is the perfect setting to relax for a few days especially after a safari on the African mainland. The all-inclusive option is an excellent value as well, although it does keep you a bit tied to the property instead of venturing out into Zanzibar's neighborhoods. It depends what you are looking for in a vacation - if you want a resort experience, the Melia has it in spades. It would be great if there were a few more walking paths between the various buildings, to get from a standard room to the restaurant or pool you need to walk down the concrete path shared with the golf carts. The most pressing issue to face though is the light switches in the standard rooms, they are back-lit and cast a surprisingly bright blue hue throughout the room all night. I am a heavy sleeper but I found myself waking up every few hours because of this. The hotel really should put shades over these switches. If they can fix the light switches we'd definitely come back!
