5 out of 5
We had an awesome time at the Riu Palace Zanzibar! The resort was beautiful! The grounds were spectacular. The wait staff were very friendly, and helpful. I would like to take a moment and mention some of the wait staff (Nitin, Jeremiah, Khadja, Jasmin, and Paulina)..all were wonderful! Ally and Nanna were so much fun to do recreation games and exercise with. The food was delicious. And, I can not say enough about the beautiful sunsets! A place you want to visit!!!
