Mbuyuni Beach Village

Excellent value, right on the beach on the southeast coast of Zanzibar. Good food. They do not take credit cards, so if you don't have a bundle of cash with you, the nearest ATM is an hour away in Stone Town, which is about a $45 taxi ride. However you can arrange an ATM stop on an excursion to Stone Town or a spice tour. ... more

It was a perfect stay, except that you can not swim in the ocean and walk on the beach from the resort. But for visiting Stone Town and doing things in town, it's perfect.
