The staff in Zanzibar Serena Hotel was superb. They were all so very helpful, delightful, and wonderful. I enjoyed the breakfast the most. Each day there were many selections of breads, cereals, fruits, juices, yogurt, and hot foods. There was even an omelet station. The only thing that was a damper during my stay was the mattress in our room. The mattress was firm, but springy. I felt the spring as I slept and when I woke each morning, my back ached.

I have stayed in many first class hotels around the world and the Serena is the best. Warm welcome staff who went above and beyond to make my stay exceptional. Beautiful hotel in a Great location. I highly recommend the Serene and can not wait to return.
