The Summit Tale and R&R in Zanzibar

A travel blog entry by joycesilva


The 7 days we spent on the mountain conjures up so many thoughts and emotions! It has now been 48 hours since we got off the mountain and I think we are finally starting to recover.

Day one was through the rain forest and rain it did!! We arrived at the first camp cold, wet and exhausted. By this evening, I was very uncertain as to how far …

Next stop on the journey was to Zanzibar.

Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous part of Tanzania, in East Africa. It is composed of the Zanzibar Archipelago in the Indian Ocean, 25–50 Km off the coast of the mainland, and consists of numerous small islands and two large ones: Unguja (the main island, referred to informally as Zanzibar), and …

A treat on the island

A travel blog entry by bruceandpetra


On our second day we decide to go on the spice tour to one of the local farms. Great fun and quite interesting. Everything from cloves, coffee, masala, pepper, star fruit, pawpaw, cinnamon, cocoa… the list goes on… is grown here. It's honestly a little garden of Eden, when it comes to fruit, veg and spices. We really enjoy the day and …

Not the Indian Ocean Island we had expected

... the slave trade in Zanzibar. It is
good to hear we have done some good unlike the French and Belgium’s
who caused havoc around Africa. We also went to the Persian Baths
which unfortunately are no longer used but the view from the top over
Stone Town was pretty cool. That night we went to Forodhani Gardens
where all the locals have their tables full of locally caught seafood
and fish. They all rush at you trying to get you to buy from ...

... than gold!) but i managed to scrape most of it off!

Finally, its bed time! A nice comfy bed that we can lie down in! Until, Heather has a drink and throws her not-so-closed water bottle into the middle of the bed! Leaving it absolutely sopping wet!

Another early start of 5:30am to catch the ferry! Running through DAR is a lot less hectic at 5:30am than 5:30pm (considering we all nearly got ran over at one point) We were placed in business class - exactly what ...

    No merece 5 estrellas, pero está bien


    Después de leer las dos opiniones anteriores llamamos a nuestro agente de viajes alarmadísimos por nuestras reservas. Sin embargo, nos aseguró que lo pasaríamos bien... ¡y así fue! Se supone que el complejo es de 5 estrellas, aunque la verdad es que es más bien del nivel de un 4 estrellas europeo. El sitio es impresionante, quizás la mejor playa del norte de la isla, la piscina es preciosa y la playa está muy bien cuidada. Nos alojamos en una habitación «Deluxe», espaciosa y muy grande, con unas vistas buenísimas del océano.

    Vacaciones de pesadilla


    Reservamos 10 noches. El servicio era tan malo para el precio que nuestro agente de viajes acabo devolviéndonos todo el dinero. ¿Hace falta decir algo más?

    Ein toller Aufenthalt


    Ich war sehr beunruhigt, nachdem ich einige andere Berichte gelesen hatte, aber war angenehm überrascht.

    Dies ist ein liebenswertes Hotel. Wir fanden, dass die Angestellten sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich waren. Wir bekamen hübsche Blumen täglich auf unser Zimmer und hatten einen atemberaubenden Blick und verbrachten den Urlaub unseres Lebens.

    Ja, das Personal hatte manchmal Schwierigkeiten uns zu verstehen (und wir sie zu verstehen), aber mal ernsthaft, wir hatten das gleiche Problem in Norwegen, Ungarn, Deutschland, Neuseeland und Italien.

    Englischsprachige Menschen haben verschieden Akzente sollten Sie wissen!

    Danke an Dan und sein Team für einen wundervollen Aufenthalt.

    Nicht 5 Sterne aber erfreulich!


    Nachdem ich die letzen 2 Berichte gelesen hatte, riefen wir in Panik wegen unserer Reservierungen unser Reisebüro an. Aber dort versicherte man uns, dass unser Aufenthalt erholsam werden würde ... und das stimmte!

    A wonderful time


    I was also very worried after reading the previous reviews, but was pleasantly surprized. It was a lovely hotel, we found the staff to be helpful and friendly. We got lovely flowers in our room everyday, had a breathtaking view and had a holiday of a lifetime. Yes, the staff did sometimes find it difficult to understand us (and we to understand them), but gosh get a life - we experienced the same problem in Norway, Hungary, Germany, New Zealand and Italy. English do have different accents you know! Thanks to Dan and his staff for a wonderful time.

    Fantastic Honeymoon at Gemma Del Est


    Just arrived back from honeymoon on safari in Kenya then to Zanzibar.

    Gemma Del Est is a wonderful hotel. The rooms, beach and pool are great.

    The food is of a good standard with plenty of choice.

    The only thing that was slightly disappointing was the a la carte seafood restaurant which only offered lobster or prawn. Although it was still very good quality.

    The location is perfect, it is a great place if you are looking to relax and totally chill out.

    Not 5 stars but Enjoyable!


    After reading the last two postings, we called our travel agent in a panic about our reservations. However, she assured us that our stay would be enjoyable...and it was!

    The holiday from hell


    We booked for 10 nights. The hotel was such poor value for money that our travel agent ended up refunding us the full cost of our stay. Need we say anymore!

    Five Star hotel i don't think so!


    This hotel has to be the worst hotel i've been to that calls it self a five star hotel. The hotel is over an hour and half from the airport the roads mostly dirt tracks full of pot holes.
