Reviews for Essque Zalu Zanzibar
Booked this hotel last minute. Pick up and check in was ok ( although the reception isn't the cleanest.I let it slide) Room was okay - ish. Hotel has no beach.. there is a cliff so no beachwalks. They do however have a beautiful jetty restaurant. Must try! Why we checked out the next day and never to return ; - VERY VERY VERY BAD FOOD. Tasteless is an understatement. - Waiters NOT TRAINED AT ALL. They also have no name tags. At dinner, We dealt with one guy who could not comprehend anything. He got ALL our orders wrong. Breakfast time, we requested for a Spanish omellete --worst omellete in our lives. I mean.. who makes a wet tasteless omellete? Whole buffet was tasteless. After breakfast we checked out..decided to lose the money rather than spend another day with bad food. We love good food in our lives ... The hotel is beautiful aesthetically but I propose a change in the kitchen and some cleaning ( it's not well maintained) We went to another hotel about 10 Mins away that exceeded our expectations!Holiday ended up great.
Hotel is beautiful, clean and cozy. Excellent service. Everyone is friendly and smiling, the noticed it was my partners birthday and prepare a cake for him without me telling the (great job when it comes to attention to detailšŖ). The only dow side was I booked a massage for us and one of the lady had her phone vibrating all the time and she replying which was very annoying because c'mon! Its not the time for that... so after I told her about it she stopped. Overall great place and great food. Pd: try the coconut ice cream and hop on a bike and explore the surroundings.
Had a great stay, beautiful view. Staff very accommodating, and will definitely come back. Loved the Spa, and the rooms we were in were spacious,the only downfall was that the food was average. Anyone that goes there is in for a treat, it's a bit far but worth the drive.

We stayed here for 3 nights post safari. The resort is approximately 1 1/4 hr drive from Stonetown but well worth the drive. The little villages along the drive have so much culture. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly staff who would do anything to make our stay perfect. Our suite was right on the water with a gorgeous view. The room was extremely large , very clean and culturally decorated. Two restaurants, one near the front and another on the wharf offered a great selection of food. An infinity pool was clean, warm and large. The resort offered a great wharf with two swings midway. The beach was great to walk on during low tide. We walked to a nearby village, spoke to the women and men fishing or looking for octopus. We viewed many sea creatures that we had never seen before. It is not a swimming beach as the water is very rough and turbulent during high tide. The hotel provided us with complimentary transportation to a great nearby swimming beach. The resort has beautifully groomed gardens between all of the rooms. This is a special place to celebrate a special occasion as we did, our anniversary !
