From the moment that you walk in, you felt relaxed and heavenly in the nice furniture and decor of the reception area. The overall decor of the hotel is amazing from the reception area, to the bars, the different dining areas, the beach area, the faboulous Spa & the Sultan Bath. also nearly forgot the swiming pool as well which has a bar beside it if required.
The room that we had was a deluxe one which was one of the nearest to the beach, think this is the only difference from the standard rooms which are just further back from the beach. The room was an adequate size with a sofa, which could have been used as an extra bed. There was a 6ft bed in the room. The room was cleaned daily and towels changed when requested.
the staff in the hotel were very helpful and very friendly in the food/drink areas, very professional.
The food was excellent, you had such a wide choice at breakfast time, even though it was the same buffet everyday, you could have something different every day from american pancakes, waffales, crepes, bacon, susage, beans, hash browns, eggs anyway, french toast, a wide variety of fruits & breads.
The Lunch menu was nice, and they had a seperate special everyday, would recommend the thai chicken noddles.
What was really impressive though was the dinners, every night it was different, they had a swahili night, an indian ocean night, a bbq night, and then differnet set menus as well. The buffet night give you a chance to sample different foods on the same plate. The tables & staff costumes were changed every night which actually felt like that you were in a defferent place each night. We had one night in the private dining area for 2, had to pay extra for this, which was probably not worth the money considering how good the main restaurant was. You could also go to another al a carte restaurant but didn't try this one.
There were a wide varieties of tours and water sports at the Breezes however we didn't try any of them (can't swim).
They also have a sports centre (didn't use it) & also a Spa, which we used twice. Had a go in the Sultans Bath which was amazing, a private bath in a small pool with lovely flower petals and a relaxing double massage afterwards as well (costs extra).
Overall was really impressed with the Breezes and would recommend for anyone looking for rest and relaxation on a honeymoon or even bringing the family to either." See all these reviews: 9n in Tanzania; 8n in Zanzibar
"Relax at Breezes"
The restaurant choices were not as stating in the brochure. There was no seafood restaurant which was a major reason that we had accepted this hotel. In fact the only choice was the main dining room and an indian restaurant where the airconditioning had failed." See all these reviews: 13n in Botswana; 7n in Zanzibar; 3n in Zambia
As a result of this feedback we asked Breezes to clarify the differences between the Suites, Deluxe and Standard rooms – as despite taking notes and pictures, we’d clearly misunderstood this last time we visited the hotel on a research trip.
They responded that the suites and deluxe rooms are located in close proximity to the sea (a maximum 2 minute walk from your room) and the standard rooms are located further in the back of the resort. Deluxe rooms do not have a guaranteed sea view – and we got this wrong. Hence we have apologised for this error, and refunded these travellers the difference between the cost of a Standard and Deluxe room.
Future travellers should note that there is no difference between the Standard and Deluxe rooms, apart from their location: the deluxe rooms are slightly nearer to the beach.
We don’t mention ‘seafood’ at Breezes in our brochure – but we do mention that they have several restaurants. The hotel comments that Breakers, their lunch restaurant, usually features lobster, rock lobster, prawns, calamari and catch of the day on the menu; their a la carte restaurant features Swahili and Indian food with seafood dishes; and Tides, which is a private beach-front restaurant, often features a lobster and seafood menu. Breezes also commented that they make a great effort to consistently feature Zanzibar’s seafood in their regular dinner menu and offer fresh catch of the day, rock lobster, prawns, calamari and octopus in the Salama Dining Room.
