We loved our stay at Zanzibar. The location was fab and the courtyard apartment was perfect for our large family with young children who couldn't get enough of the pool and private jacuzzi.

Fabulous location. Friendly, helpful staff. There was a puddle of make up on the bathroom floor from previous guests which made us wonder how clean our room was. The garbage disposal didn't smell at all clean and the main bathroom had a faint scent of mould. Every issue we brought to the attention of staff was seen to cheerfully and...

Park the car under the apartment and no need to touch it again for the rest of your stay. Coles within easy walking. Zanzibar is right in the middle of the action. Take a...

The beds were blissful, well equipped place and we appreciated the new furnishings. The rooms have an African theme which was fun. Straight outside were cafes and shops with the beautiful beach across the road. We would...

Apart from being ideally located in the heart of the Sunshine Coast's restaurant and cafe hub, the standout benefit of this apartment complex is the friendliness and professionalism of the front desk staff.
