RELAXING GUESTHOUSE

by written on February 2, 2009

This place on the beach seems to be open by someone in Germany. That would explain why their website is based in Germany and priced in Euros. Several VT and Travel Advisor members have reviewed the Blue Oyster and were happy with the hotel. Some have described it as more of a guest house. They offer 3 types of rooms: The buildings and décor look great, they are known to have an excellent restaurant and their location is right on the beach. You are only a few steps from the surf. All rooms have hot water. They also offer telephone and laundry facilities. The Blue Oyster is one of the few hotels in Zanzibar that will take Visa Cards and Travellers Cheques (charges for the cheques). You also have access to a safety deposit box. I did walk past the Blue Oyster several times and had a good look round, but it was closed when I visited Jambiani (rainy season).


*** CLOSED DURING THE RAINY SEASON ***

Unique Quality:
• Roof-top restaurant
• Right on the beach
• Modern décor
• Renowned restaurant

The Simple Pleasures

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 8, 2007

Awesome rooms for the seasoned traveler. 9/10 for value and comfort.
Food after the 5th day can be rather boring. 7/10
But there are lots of little restaurants within a couple minutes walk. (Kims and Okala's)
For good time see; Captain Zappy. Water Activity specialist.

Unique Quality: Upper units have huge a balcony and a view to die for.
Very clean. Excellent Management and staff.
Don't forget about 5am call to prayer. Keep the fan on and you may not hear it.
