The beach is very nice and the hotel is very close to the beach. The sand is white and the tides are not too strong. The staff are helpful and ready to help. Food is great and affordable.

Review №5

Quiet but beautiful resort by the ocean. Polite and helpful staff. Chef Alam was outstanding. He went beyond the call of duty to cater to our dietery needs. Food was amazing. He is the principal asset. Showers are not efficient but who needs them when the ocean is on the door step.

Review №11

Dont be scammed. They took my money and I gave them all my info. Not knowing they were closed and under renovation and no one called or emailed me to inform me about this until when I got there on Sunday night!!! Worst part is for them to refund my money, I need to prove I stayed somewhere else and give them a hotel name and receipt and card used to pay...who does business like this!!!! What happened to privacy. DO NORT BOOK THIS HOTEL!!!!

Review №12

Review №13

Beautiful setting with long white sandy beach and nice gardens. Good food. Lovely staff. Towels and linen could be cleaner . Go in season as sun and sea destination. We were there in low season and apart from a visit to Stone town nothing to do in rainy season.

Review №14

Service is truly amazing. Scenery is superb. Good food. However you need to do the all inclusive.Overall great value for money.

Review №15

The 6 night stay at the African was part of a 14 day trip all around Tanzania, and one of five accommodations we stayed at, and I can say by far the best one - cause of the location, the food and the kindest people who work there.It is located on a stretch of the beach in the peaceful village Bwejuu. For relaxing and soaking up some of the fresh Zanzibar sun and breeze you can either take the beach or the pool, which are right next to each other. The poolside is nice and clean (great maintenance by the pool guys Isa & Muweba). You can also ask for a beach towel (free of charge). Next to all of that is the beach bar, where you can order freshly squeezed juices, cocktails, beer & spirits and listen to all african greatest hits (ask the waiter Zambron to hook you up)!For amenities you can play beach volleyball on a perfect white sandy beach, or you can play some billiards (which needs a bit of updating) in the lounge area of the resort. There is also a TV lounge.There you can also arrange a variety of tours on the island with the hotel tour management (two nice ladies work there).We stayed in a room by the poolside, it was very clean, the bed was comfortable and also had a mosquito net. The rooms are cleaned daily if you dont put a Do not disturb sign.Restaurant - the food there is AMAZING! From seafood, fish, octopus, traditional african meals, continental food, all kinds of sauces, gravies, salads and deserts made with a variety of african, arabic and indian spices. We had a buffet for breakfast & dinner, and we ordered ala carte for lunch. For buffets they always recharge the meals which are eaten so there are no worries it wont be enough for everybody. Special mention to the restaurant manager Odello which runs it which such kindness and grace, always worrying about the guests needs.But the man of the hour is definitely chef Alam. The chef often comes tothe restaurant to see which meals are needed to be refilled and checks with guests is everything okay. The thing is that my wife has a gluten and lactose intolerance and for every single meal chef Alam with great care showed us what she can eat and always made her something extra just for her so she and I can have a stress-free vacation.Special mention also for the hotel management mr. Fabio (Mr. Fabulous) and mr. Said which were always there if needed to answer some of your questions, and more. All of the staff and people working there were so kind, helpful and always greeted us with smiles and love and would like to say - Asante sana rafiki!Hakuna Matata

Amazing place to stay... just on the beach the pool bar the service also the great chef Alam amazing food

Review №17

Amazing place to stay with great hospitality and treatment from the staff. Also, a very nice restaurant to have your lunch and dinner.It has a beautiful view of the sea and is surrounded with wonderful and well maintained gardens.

Review №18

We only went to the restaurant, but Id say never go here! This was the worst experience of my life; When we wanted to pay, we had a miscommunication about the price of the wine and wanted to spreak to the manager. No one of the staff could spreak proper english (this was probably the reason of miscommunication). Instead of the manager, the security guy came, he didnt want to talk with us, but got angry and forced us to pay. When we denied, he grabbed my phone from the table and walked away. There were 3 guys making sure we couldnt leave the property. Obviously they let their emotions stand in the way of proffesional service. In the end we just paid the extra $13(?!!) because they frightend us so much, we didnt feel safe anymore. Its feels terifying that we got threathed like this, after wanting to talk to the manager. It was an horrific experience. The wine was even terrible and not worth anything.

Review №19

Friendly and efficient staff. Great variety of meals. 3 pools in front of some rooms, some rooms have seaview. Last night had a bonfire and singer with free drink and snacks. So far awsome experience.x

I have enjoyed myself at African Sun Sea Beach Resort so much that it was not my last to visit.The people are very friendly and willing to help at all the is possible just to remove the deposit by the ocean on the beach?That would be great.Keep it up all.I really had a wonderful experience

Review №27

Loved the whole experienceThe staff are super amazing and attentiveBreakfast was mediocre but lunch and supper was always fabulousThe pools are always sparkling cleanThe rooms kept neat and tidy every day

Review №28

Management needs to work properly on operations ,rooms booked should not be changed at their own Will without informing the one Who booked, by doing so it will never again take us one hour waiting our rooms keys

Review №29

Staff were amazing, the chef went above and beyond to accommodate my tomato allergy, rooms and accommodation were lovely.

Great view of the ocean and lot os swimming pools. Food was good and staff are friendly!

Review №36

Lovely place great food excellent staff ,rooms could do with abit of a upgrade , full halaal menu

Review №37

I would not be staying here again. The staff was really friendly. The place is located on the beach with a very nice view. This is in fact a very poor country with this I could agree just from the airport to the hotel it could be confirmed. However it has really come to my attention that management is not involved at all. Maintenance in the resort is defnintyly not a priority. Another guest almost got killed or would have been in a serious condition because of the bad maintenance. They also neglect to inform you that your all inclusive would end the last night of your stay leaving you with nothing to drink your final day before departure. How much could you really drink before your departure? One drink maybe two but definitely not more than what you have in a full day. This just shows top management commitment and customer focuse.

Review №38

Unforgettable moments everything was on point no regrets at all the chef 👩‍🍳 the food was great definitely coming back

Review №42

Nice staff. New experience.

Review №43

Its absolutely perfect & amazing place for your holidays time.. Try it!!

Review №44

Complete package of enjoyment.... But little bit costly

Review №45

Stay here was not that not great. Rooms were bad and dirty. There were a few dead bugs in my room and my pillow looked like it got run over by a car tire. Food did not taste good and was constantly served cold when ordered a la carte. Many food items on the menu items were unavailable too.We enjoyed the pool, but it could have been better. For instance, they did not have enough cushions for the pool chairs. So the person working constantly had to move cushions around and many times there were not enough cushions for people. Also, it would be nice if at least one pool was heated or if there was a hot tub.On a positive note, on our last day, the indian chef prepared us a special meal and we were served chai and snacks when requested. This definitely made our experience better on the last day. Overall, our stay was okay. If you are just going to relax by the pool, this should be sufficient. Just dont go in with high expectations and plan to eat out for a few meals.

Review №46

Nice spot for family vacation. Kids really enjoyed the pool

Review №84

The first PiliPili facility I have been to - a beautiful place, the staff cares about a good atmosphere, cleanliness in the room and common areas. Good food and a large beach. If you are looking for a place in Zanzibar where you can relax after exploring this charming island, I recommend PiliPili Holiday Resort & Spa

Review №85

One of the best, if not the best resort in the Pili Pili chain in my opinion. At the same time, it is one of the largest available in their offer, which of course also translates into the number of people with us in the resort, but due to the fact that it is also really large on the surface, you do not feel that there are several times more people in it than in other centers.Delicious food and drinks, one of the few resorts where there is a buffet and a la carte (I do not recommend pizza, it is better in Milele 😅).The staff is very nice and always helpful. Every day you can count on various attractions organized by the center.The location is ideal for getting to know the other objects in the Pili Pili network, because it is located more or less in the middle - regardless of whether we go right or left, after about an hour we will reach another center from the network.Another huge plus is the number of sports activities available - of course there are two large swimming pools and two smaller ones. In addition, we will find a place to play beach games, football goals, table tennis and billiards.The only minor disadvantages are the rooms, which are a bit rough, but really big and comfortable (although they were supposed to be renovated now, so its possible that this problem is gone 😅) and ... Poor internet 😅 really, if you want to look at something in the network, you have to be patient

Review №86

Excellent hotel! Very nice and helpful staff! The food is interesting and tasty. Ocean-incomparable! Very cool location. Quiet hotel for a relaxed stay! Recommend!!!

Review №87

Housed in one of the bungalows in the garden area which is located behind the main building. So, the structure is visibly dated, especially the rooms would need a restyling. The beds, however, are not very comfortable and do not have mosquito nets. There is a fan and air conditioning and they are working. The bathroom has a shower with hot water always available and a hairdryer. The room is large with a sitting area with kettle (with a good choice of teas, herbal teas, coffee, empty minibar, armchairs and coffee table, fan and blackout curtain that divides from the sleeping area. Overall the structure works and is equipped with many comforts, 3 swimming pools, showers and poolside bar, sun loungers both by the pool and on the beautiful beach, all included in the rate. Usable but ruined pool table and pingpong table. The problem is that the structure has been a bit let go and is a great pity since it is located in a quiet and beautiful area of ​​mine.Varied and good breakfast with freshly made fruit juice, coffee, tea, cappuccino, fresh fruit plate, I always had spanish omelette (optionally also eggs), accompanied by bread, butter, jam, sweets or croissants, choice of sautéed chicken sausage , beans, toast with cheese, or pancakes ... in short, a little bit of everything. Lunch and dinner were on request, a clerk passed by to ask for the order a few hours before. Good but a little more expensive than average.The cocktails are also very good.Prices are in dollars.I forgot, the wifi works well.On the beach in front of the hotel there is also a mini market with souvenirs of a Zanzibari boy.I hope they fix a number of details, because the location really deserves it

Review №88

Rooms for three with a minus, check the serviceability of air conditioners, there is no animation from the word at all. Try to get to rest on a full moon, there will be a maximum tide and the opportunity to swim well. Friendly staff, a safe only at the reception, I recommend storing valuables there, normal swimming pools, some bungalows are far from the sea without a view of it. Yes, there is a joke, there are telephones in the rooms, but they are not working! In some places, there are not even cords ... 😶 The kitchen is not bad, of course there is no abundance of dishes, but it is quite tasty, the cooks are not local, the dishes are rarely repeated. No bar! The beer is cold only in the morning, from an inclusive rum dark, and white, not counting beer and juices with soda. The rest is paid, on the shore local solvers offer whatever you want, do not forget to bargain! There is a shop, magnets are cheaper than elsewhere on the island! Clothes, masks, paintings, beads, fenichi, figurines, there is a bargain but not a lot. Well, enjoy your rest, if you are in the mood, you will always find a company.

Review №89

The hotel is not the same for a long time. Everything is old. Everything hangs on wires. The hotel manager is from India and doesnt understand anything about business. The hotel is dying out. The kitchen is generally dead, you can stay hungry. I do not recommend buying brands. But the nature of the beach is excellent. But it has nothing to do with the hotel

Review №90

Hotel for 4.Pools are cleaned, cleaning is regular.The food is not a great choice, but everything is tasty and you can definitely eat well.There are not many cons. There are few sun loungers by the pool, average internet, there is almost one alcohol in the bar, no fresh juices.But there is a lot of alcohol in cocktails, at a price of $ 4-5Hookah 7 $The hotel itself is practically isolated. There is nothing nearby. Until then, go 5 km, you can take a bike on the beach, there are many options, but the prices are $ 20 for 2 or 4 hours. Depending on the tide, you can ride at different times, but on the road only if you are willing to take the risk, because there is a police, and you will not be given a helmet. But the police are quite ready to take the money and let it go. They can be found on the road near the hotel, so the beach is 100% without police.Access to the water is the main advantage of the hotel. Many hotels do not have this.There is a condo, but it works poorly, rather it just blows the air it is.In general, if you were expecting Africa, you will rather be pleasantly surprised, but behind the hotel there are trash, especially expensive.

Review №91

Do not go children to Africa for a walk .... the owner of the hotel, manager and chef from Mumbai (India). There is no money in the hotel and it is very jittery .. everything is very, very modest. Refrigerator, kettle and air conditioning in the room were not working properly. The air conditioner drove either warm or cold air. For 9 days, the mechanic never filled it with refrigerant (akuna-matata). The room was cleaned daily and well. The kitchen is very, very simple. There are no complaints about the cook. Just one tuna (6kg - yield: 3.5-4 kg) for 80 people !!!! Not enough ... chicken - like in the USSR “blue bird) - just finely chopped together with the bones ... also chopped crabs with rice ... so you wont be able to lose weight - you will be replenished with sweet pancakes ... very similar to hotels *** in Goa ... who was, he will understand. The hotel grounds are beautiful. I do not recommend the pool - there is simply no water filtration system - they pour chlorine in buckets ... the entrance to the water on the beach is not sand !!! And white clay !!! Lots of sea urchins - slippers are required !!! And remember, there is simply NO medicine on the island !!!

Review №92

We rested in this hotel together with my wife from 18 to 27 November 2020 according to the all-inclusive system with alcohol. Keep in mind that the hotel has two vme systems included - light is without alcohol and normal AI. There were many who were caught due to inattention. The hotel is really located at a distance from all the benefits of civilization. The territory itself is an oasis. Beyond poverty. The food is rather weak. Add lots of curries and butter. But not so pungently, more correctly strongly spicy. Anyone with digestive problems should be considered. Local Zanzibar-Tanzanian cuisine is deliciously prepared. The new General Manager of the Seppan Hotel from India. Apparently the owners of the hotel have changed. They have another hotel African located to the south. The most important thing is that there is nothing near the hotel, the whole movement in the Page, there you can buy cheeses from France, Italy, Denmark, etc., wines from Switzerland, and various cosmetics. Everything can be bought in villages like Paget. You dont have to go to Zanzibartown to shop. Prices for excursions on the island from the local 20-25 dollars everything else is already overstated

Review №93

The stay will stay in my memory forever

Review №94

Hotel with a swimming pool and a very nice view with one of the prettiest beaches that we can see on the island.The staff on site is very attentive and really attentive to our requests and also very friendlyThe cuisine is provided by a chef who has studies unlike the restaurants on the island.The meals are excellent varied well preservedThe rooms are dated but quite peaceful with a fairly simple decoration

Review №95

Awful place !!! No beach !!! Little food !!! The hotel rules for all inclusive are simply horrible, the choice of alcohol is poor two or three kinds, there is no wine, there is always no beer, there is paid beer, but for all inclusive there is no !!!Bungalow rooms are generally a nightmare, during their stay they changed the bungalows because it flooded at night and swam, moved to another bungalow, the ceiling fell in the bathroom !!!!

Review №96

I recommend delicious cuisine and wonderful swimming pools.

Review №97

Very good hotel. Good kitchen. For breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet. In principle, inexpensive, since in other restaurants the portions are much smaller. Three pools with clean water. The guarded territory and the beach, the guards do not let the merchants, the piers, bother the tourists. There is no animation (for me it is excellent). The distance is 7 km to Page, there try to sweat on the beach - torture traders. The hotel has a spa, but did not notice much interest from holidaymakers, they are far from Tai. The main value, tranquility and a deserted beach, occasionally I pass by traders.

Review №98

The hotel is not worth the money.Cuisine is disgusting. Chef from india, one curry. Cocktails in the bar for 3 at a stretch.Allegedly, fresh water is badyazhat from the tap. So gatherings on the faience are guaranteed. The pools are not cleaned. The jacuzzi pool does not function at all. From the declared 2 bars one is working.

Review №99

The staff was absolutely wonderful, they did everything to make us happy. The food is good, a little cold but it fixed them in the end. The owner should buy new stuff. The bed was hard, we told about new mattress and it got much better. Clean and nice, they cleaned every day.The downside was that the small bar closed to all-inclusive guests at 9 pm not ok, you might want to have something to drink when the food is ready 😊 On the whole, it is definitely worth visiting. The staff was fantastic.

Review №100

Rest at the African Sun Sand sea Beach Resort & Spa, Zanzibar, Buehuu.A very quiet hotel for complete relaxation, for those who want to relax and enjoy the tranquility. Beautiful green and well-groomed area. Smiling and helpful staff. Everyone is ready to help in any business.We lived in a bungalow. A fairly large two-room house. The rooms are separated by curtains. Nice renovation. Comfortable double bed. Air conditioning and two fans are all in working order. Kettle, refrigerator in the room. Tea, coffee, milk powder and water sets are replenished every day. Also shower gel and shampoo.Rooms are cleaned daily. Conscientious cleaning - very clean. Towels are changed every day. Bed linen every three days. In the evenings, once again spray the room and the entrance to it with a mosquito spray. They were never in the room.Each bungalow has its own large veranda with a table and comfortable chairs. The floor is also washed there every day.Every two days, the gardener mows the grass, removes dry leaves and takes care of the trees in every bungalow in every possible way.Kitchen! Delicious food cooked with soul! The chef is great. Every day I talked with the guests and asked about their impressions of lunch and dinner.Surprisingly great wi - fi throughout. It catches both on the beach and in the room.There are 3 swimming pools. All clean.Ocean ... twice a day there were low tides. The first three days the water temperature in the ocean was 40 degrees ... hot current .. then 30 degrees. Almost all the time och shallow and you need to go far to swim .. but this rest did not spoil. Deeper - the water is cleaner .. because sand rises in shallow areas and becomes very cloudy. We swam in slippers.Conclusion: GREAT HOLIDAY FOR NORMAL MONEY!
