Average resort stay.
I stayed in Tanzanite beach resort for 3 night. Last part of the drive to the hotel is on a gravel road that is very bumpy. Free massage road, they call it. It was a comfortable stay. Room is spatious and clean. Bed was comfy. Bathroom was alright. The water pressure isn't great! The fridge was not working. Staff were all friendly. Some don't understand English that well. The service at the restaurant was terrible. You do wait a long time for your food and drinks. Breakfast was nothing fancy at all. They can change it up a bit. The luch and dinner that i had at the hotel was not bad. They can however change their menu up a bit. Do check the tides as the hotel is right on the beach and with high tide you can't walk into the busier part of nungwi via the beach. Also take water shoes as you want swim infront of the hotel without them. Don't expect much from your stay though.

Not so great
We were excited about zanzibar after climbing kilimanjaro. Things went wrong right at the start. Our hotel pick up was not at the airport. We were forced to deal with angry porters at the airport fighting over business jacking pricing up on us. The cab ride to the hotel was terrible and he purposely hit every single bump and was angry as we refused to pay his jacked price. When we arrived at the hotel we questioned why no pick up at the airport and never received an answer. The room was ok. The area within the resort was ok but outside of their walls it was awful. It may have been my perception but they don't care for Americans. We were always asked where we were from with big smiles and they would try to guess... when I said usa they frowned. We opted after to say Canadian and were met with help and big smiles.
