The Reef and Beach resort seems to mostly cater to European visitors on all-inclusive packages. I'm not really used to these kinds of resorts so I was a little put off when the first thing I was told to do was wear a blue bracelet at all times... I guess that's to let staff know on which package you are....

Room´s bathroom is a bit shabby and old, would need reconstruction, but for us it was not of an issue. Otherwise, all the resort was cleaned all the time and the best was really...

I experienced the most warm welcome from Reception to my room. Ally at reception was exceptionally friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed the service from Jacob, Clement and Eric at pool bar so much fun. The food at the Restaurant was always so good and the staff so accommodating. Management is friendly and engaging with patrons. Loved their cocktails and entertainment.

This place was amazing. We was there on January 2017. Very clean resort with kind and friendly people. We had all-inclusive program. There were so many drinks (in the afternoon were snacks too) and every day was different cuisine (African, European, Asian, etc.). Pool was very clean too. We visited Stone town, Prison Island, Jozani park, Butterfly farm and Spice...

Dear Petra, Thank you for the review, great to read that you had a fantastic holiday. You booked a combi package by TUI with Beach & Safari. Safari in Selous is great, only a short flight and you are in the middle of the real bush. Do you know in Selous Game Reserve are more than 5000 lions, 14.000 Elephants...

This resort is quiet, very clean, with a friendly staff. And very affordable as well. When I arrived three days prior to my reserved dates, they were able to fit Mae in for two days and found a hotel nearby for the third night. They even provided transportation both to the hotel and back to the resort the next day....

“some rooms facing pool can be noisy due to the music being played from 10 to 13 loudly, so if you want quite room, go for bungalows.”
