We stayed here for four night at the end of our holiday in Zanzibar. And we loved this place. Everything was good. The staff is really nice, the beach is nice, the pool is nice and everything is so beautiful at villa de coco. And the food was really good, the pizza was amazing! Best pizza in Zanzibar I think....

We did not stay in one of the hotel rooms, but rather rented an apartment through airbnb that was on the hotel property, so we had access to all amenities. The hotel is situated on a beautiful beach. The garden and pool area are amazing, with trees for shade, and colorful flowers everywhere. The cafe was also nice, with a... More

Everything there is cute and lovely, manicured garden, beautiful tastefully decorated bungalow a few meter from the beach... What a pleasure to be waken by the sound of waves and have this idyllic scenery in front of you eyes as soon as you get out of your room. Private beach is great but can sometime be a bit windy, so...

Nice location on the beach. Beach area was great and bartender served good cocktails. Breakfast was little bit small for a grown up person, but tasty. Rooms could use some maintenance, bed was unstable and rocking, ceiling fan was unbalanced and noisy, bathroom lacked running water most of the time. Overall, we loved our stay there. PS. Their guide for... More

Came across this place whilst walking along the beach. It looked lovely so we gave it a go. I'm afraid that was a bit of a mistake. Good menu choices and romantic setting, but really slow service and average food for the price, we thought. We won't be returning as there are better places to eat on the beach.
