Our stay at Crazy Mzungos was very disappointing. The food was bad and staff was absolutely not interested in its guests. Partly no water in the rooms. Rooms where without any decoration or additional furniture but quite clean. Restaurant and beach didn't get cleaned regularly. Sunbeds where mostly broken. The location was really nice though!
Extremely terrible service and lack of communication with establishment. After trying to get a response about an airport pick-up for 4 weeks, I only got an email on the day before we were scheduled to arrive. We were told that our reservation was not possible. This is 24hrs before our scheduled arrival after trying to get hold of the place for 4 weeks. Still awaiting a refund from Hostelworld/Crazy Mzungo. The beach is also one of the worst I had been to in Zanzibar.
We were "upgraded" from a bungalow to a suite. Which was a very basic accomm. A bed with a mosquito net. A dresser of sort. A clean bathroom, with hot salt water for shower. The view from our "suite" was beautiful, and the open air concept on the ocean front windows was quite nice to listen to the ocean. We had dinner one night, it was a tad overpriced, but this seemed to be the case for Zanzibar as a whole. Drinks were weak and $5USD or more a piece. Staff was great help in many situations.
Crazy Mungo's was a lovely place to stay in a beautiful location on the beach. However, there was no running hot water throughout our stay, despite reporting this to the staff and management, and occasionally no cold running water either. But this is Africa!
