6/10 Good

Don't believe the pictures
The hotel is not nearly as beautiful as it is in the pictures. I am sure it was amazing 5 years ago but it has fallen into a bad state of disrepair. A colony of bats made a home inside and leave their droppings all over the hallway and in room #4 if you are lucky to get that one. Room #1 smelled of raw sewage. However, the wifi is blazing fast and works all over the property and beach. The staff are wonderful and very helpful. I just wish the owners would invest a little in repairs and clean out the bats.

hidden gem
arrived in the middle of the night after an error with a reservation at a different property. Manager met us with freshly squeezed juice and was very kind and thoughtful. Small hotel with large, very clean and comfortable rooms. Would be great for families. Great value for money!

Excellent Quite Peaceful Hotel
Excellent Hotel away from the busy city Stone Town.Theres lots to do nearby but that's tours and stuff.Quite far from airport.No nearby ATM or Money exchange so better to get money at airport or town before arriving here.Everything is in dollars so it's convenient.Rooms are clean.Pool Area is excellent.Theres a beach not really for swimming but excellent for sunrise.You can walk further in during low tide and see snorkel.Downside the menu is limited so if you don't like wat you eat you don't have much of a choice fortunately we did enjoy our meals.Last but not least the customer service from all staff Mr Baraka the manager and the other workers are very friendly,helpful and accommodating. Cannot thank Amina more for playing with our baby and making her feel at home.Overall Excellent Hotel for families.

Paradise has been found!
This place is heaven on earth! When you wake up to the view over the Indian Ocean in the morning and watching the sunrise, you feel like the happiest person on earth. The sky is FULL of stars in the night and it is the most beautiful night sky I have ever seen. The rooms are amazing, the hotel staff is SO nice, talkative and friendly. And the food is fantastic! The African dishes as well as the "European/American" dishes - I enjoyed every meal I had there and looked forward to it every day. I want to thank everyone at Villa Fleur de Lys for making my stay the perfect ending of my volunteering months in Tanzania. I have never felt so much at peace and so calm and relaxed. This place is paradise - you won't find anything better on Zanzibar.

Very nice secluded place on the beach.
It's not what I expected, but it was a nice experience, which I enjoyed very much, specially the unique hotel setup and the homey environment and the friendly staff, even though it was not easy to walk around and the beach is not always accessible.

The stay here was absolutely great. The roomies stayed was very comfortable which I have never felt before. The all staff hospitality was quite nice, such as manager, house keepers, guide and driver. I really thank them. Only one thing I felt unsatisfied was food. It was not too bad also not very good. Except that everything's perfect. I want to come back again. Thank you very much.

Private Paradise
Beautiful villa on small private beach. Views of the Indian ocean outstanding. Perfect sized pool to cool off. Towels layed out daily for us. Wonderful, helpful staff. Minor language barriers but they go out of their way to ensure everything is good. Food is good. Drinks reasonably priced. Rooms spacious, comfortable beds. The villa is set in about 2 km from the main road. We arranged transport through the Villa. They will organize local excursions. Paje beach is a short car ride away. Only issue was air conditioning was not working while we were there but there were fans in the rooms and nice breezes off the ocean into the villa, but don't kid yourself, it is HUMID in March in Zanzibar. Luckily the south does not seem to receive much of the rain as it was rainy season. We only had a few rain showers and all in early morning.

Really friendly service from Pascal & team
The entire hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Special mention goes to Pascal, the hotel owner, for going out of his way to be attentive to our needs. He provided assistance with flight bookings as well as local airport transfers (organising a taxi driver from the area) and has very strong local knowledge, having lived in Zanzibar for 4 years. The hotel itself offers an amazing view of the sea, with very different vistas during high and low tide. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Kudos for providing an extra personal touch.
