"Zanzibar Pearl Boutique Hotel review"
We had a problem with the shower after a day. - the water pressure had dropped and temperature control temperamental. It was fixed very promptly, but the next day started playing up again. Perhaps a need for more investigation (room 13).
Also there were many mosquitos getting into the room, I think through the open slats in the door !
The food was really good. We had a fish night, and Swahili buffet over the four nights, plus some very good local entertainment. It can get a bit chilly at night on the upper level of the dining room, so bring a wrap.
Breakfast was lovely. Cereal, toast, home-made jams,, fruit platter, pastries, and you can choose from the hot menu.
The staff are lovely, friendly and helpful.
I am not a pool person, so cannot comment on that, but spent time on the beach loungers, and you can walk for miles, a delight. You can swim at high tide, but beware the urchins, hence necessity for reef shoes.
The Masai peddling gifts can be a nuisance, but just keep walking and they soon melt away. (And they do not bother you on on the loungers).
There is a very good diving/snorkelling trip advertised, which I would recommend. (Scubafish Dive Centre), a short way up the beach. Very well organised, they take time to fit you with the right gear, and carefully explain everything. Our guide would dive down and show us different fish.
I would definitely return here." See all these reviews: 6n in Zanzibar; 5n in Tanzania
