Positive Reviews

Warm, laid-back staff.

Azanzi Beach Hotel is all about relaxing in an exotic, romantic tropical location and the staff really make that happen with a laid-back but professional attitude. Staff are very accommodating to all requests and give the feeling that nothing is too big or small for them to handle.

Gorgeous, spacious rooms.

Rooms are incredibly well-decorated in an authentic African flavour with plenty of hand-made wood furniture and warm wooden flooring. This is very well-combined with modern touches and the entire space is spotlessly clean and very well looked after. Villas are especially beautiful with outdoor showers adding a real tropical feel.

Great pool and restaurant layout.

A very clever idea is to have the restaurant on stilts above the pool with a walkway/bridge to the main restaurant and bar area. This helps to create great views of the pool and the Indian Ocean. The pool area is also partially covered with a shared thatch roof, creating a more intimate space which is both warm and earthy.

Negative Reviews

No free airport shuttle.

The hotel provides an airport shuttle service but, unlike most of the food and drink and some services, is not included in the overall price.

Most activities are extra.

While the hotel offers an ideal location for sunbathing or beach barbecues, most of the activities such as deep sea fishing, snorkelling or scuba diving are actually off-site activities and are charged for separately.

Some Wi-Fi issues.

The hotel offers free Wi-Fi but this service is however not available in all rooms or suits as the signal just isn't strong enough. The free Wi-Fi service is best enjoyed in public areas such as the pool or bar areas.
