Friendly staff. Room close to the beach.
Amazing place, room was clean with very great bed, although lettle short for my. Staff was great and forthcomming, helped us organize a dinner on a beach. Would come back for sure
Only downside are locals on the beach, following you every step and trying to sell you stuff. Very iritating, especially after few days
Location is great, next to a beautiful beach were you can walk along during low tide. Staff was very friendly even some of the staff would need better training at reception. Spa was very nice and very friendly staff. There are quite lots of pool areas around the resort. The sunbath area is private only guests can access, which is nice to avoid sellers in main beach. Sunsets are the best!
Food could have been better quality, but was fine. We would have appreciated an animation / activities team at the resort, especially at nights, as there is not much to do around. They do some shows but not every night (twice a week). All included deal is the best option.
The property is located on one of the best stretches of the infamous Nungwi beach, with stunning vies of sunrise and sunset from the east coast of Zanzibar. The main swimming pool area was a favorite for the family but the towel service let us down.
The check-in process took 30 minutes despite having booked and confirmed via booking.com. As my family (parents and two kids both under 6 years)offloaded from the airport transport, the Masasai porters didn’t even bother to help us with the luggage. We selected a sea facing villa, which one of the more expensive options, but to our surprise the room was stuffy, small and very aged. The worst part of our experience was the food, having paid over US $ 1,000 for a three night full board. We were forced to eat out everyday because the buffet selection was incredibly poor, only one option of sea food, no chicken and cheap beef was the order of the day. We noticed that the hotel catered for largely Italian clientele, so we decide to try the pasta instead of going to other hotel. Once against were disappointed, they didn’t even have parmesan cheese! What surprised us the most was the value for money, we have been to Zanzibar more than five times but this was our worst experience. For the same amount of money one can get a superior experience from food to rooms at several of the hotels located on the same location. For example, we opted to eat out at the Z Hotel and Langilangi which are a stone throw away from this facility. Checking out turned out to be a nightmare, once again it was a 30 minute ordeal. The owner/manager claimed they didn’t accept debit cards despite having confirmed my booking using one. They also insisted that the rate quoted on my confirmation was slightly lower than what they charge, I obliged since it was insignificant.
A lovely tranquil hotel. The staff really went above and beyond to make our stay more comfortable. Prior to our stay we had issues with the credit card it was booked on and the hotel really helped us out with regards to payment. We went for full board and we are so glad we did as the food was delicious, we ate breakfast lunch and dinner there every day and never felt the need to go anywhere else. We heard other places were quite expensive for food so we really felt we got value for our money with regards to food. There was always nice entertainment in the evenings and the staff were always so friendly. Rooms were cleaned everyday.
It is a very quiet hotel and not much nightlife near if that is what you want. We wanted a relaxing holiday and that is exactly what we got. The gym that is available is very old, hot and small, equipment has not been updated in years. But other than that is was a really pleasant stay.
When you stay at My Blue Hotel in Nungwi, you'll be on the beach, within a 5-minute drive of Nungwi Beach and Kendwa Beach. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk and luggage storage. Free self parking is available onsite.
