This hotel had a beautiful location and a great garden. Unfortunately the management was the worst we've ever seen. There was an indian manager/dictator and the only things he did was to run around and yelling at the staff in front of the guests. He was really mean. The food was not good, and there are no alternatives nearby. The... More

This place used to be owned run by foreigners, whom got some bad reviews for service, but now it's run by Tanzanians and the service is absolutely perfect! Me and my two friends stayed at another hotel nearby, but often went to the White Rose for dinner, because their restaurant is amazing. Also, we wanted to go on a boat... More

When we arrived at the hotel we were shocked to see that the swimming pool was bright green. There was no WIFI, no water no electricity and no restaurant. When we complained, we received the...

I visited the place with my family, and we really had a nice, enjoyable moment at the hotel. The staff and whole management are good and kind, reveals the charm the Zanzibar people hold. The rooms were clean, and delicious food. My time to White Rose was worthy. Keep it up guys!

We spent about 3 weeks in "White Rose" and what we found there was just great. Schumari, the cook, is probably one of the best in Tansania. The whole team in the hotel was helpful and friendly so we felt really like at home. The place is beautiful, clean and peaceful. We had such a great time and hope we... More

I was looking for a restaurant and I found a very nice resort. Right on the beach, with pool. The rooms are decorated in African style, very simple but comfortable. I enjoyed the choice not to have TV in the room ... it's much more interesting to live in the common areas and know the local people smiling The staff... More

I have never in my life and all my travels been to a hotel that behaved in such an unprofessional manner and was so incredibly badly run. I've also never felt like I was being held hostage at a hotel that just wanted to extract more money from me, but this is exactly how I felt at the White Rose.... More
