beaches, people, bar staff wonderful. we had the villa which was ok but the room and bathroom need a bit of TLC, but hey-ho everything else was wonderful. if you do a tour a lot of the beach sellers are fine when you consider the hotel tours are $100 more expensive. the beach is pristine with lovely walks but its a long trek back to the hotel from the beach to the villas. more expensive rooms named suites are nearer to the beach but further to the restaurants, so its a 50/50 choice. the food was ok and plentiful. the breakfasts were excellent and midday lunch on the beach very good. we had a few minor issues but the staff were very quick to react...although we did leave some clothing behind and a month later still waiting for them to arrive!. the shower pressure was poor but otherwise the rooms were fine although not the most comfortable i have slept in. Stone town worth a visit and you will see where Freddie Mercury was born, we took the trip to prison island too all for less than 100$, from Ali Baba on the beach. we went for total relaxation and got it, the beach vendors dare not come to the private beach but are there to barter, which was fun

Room Tip: not for those with difficulty in walking

My husband and I had 4 nights relaxing at Diamonds at the end of our honeymoon last year following a fantastic week of safari - so we were exhausted! Upon arrival we were upgraded to one of the gorgeous Ocean Suites free of charge with complementary, wine, beer, juice, fruit and cakes. The standard the place is finished to is incredible and everyday the housekeeping staff made sure everything was perfect. Great selection of food at the all inclusive restaurants on site - we had both beef and tuna steaks made to order! - and fresh salad and vegetables with every meal. Table service for drinks even in the main restaurant and evening entertainment at the cocktail bar over the ocean had us up dancing. My only criticism would be that as we arrived late on the first night we were given the option for room service at the reception desk as we checked in - my dinner never arrived and my husbands came cold but as it was late we just went to bed. But other than that a fantastic stay and excellent honeymoon memories

Stayed: September 2017, traveled as a couple

LA GEMMA is such a high standard and amazing place. Definitely the best in Zaznzibar with the unique Sunset Lounge - bar on the water.
People are very king and willing to make you feel special, food is absolutely amazing! All seafood, octopus, fresh fish every day, even the pizza in the snack bar is amazing! :) The best beaches are in Nungwi and the best beach in Nungwi is here in La Gemma. All rooms are sea view. I love it here and highly recommend tot everyone, couples, families, friends, groups. Enjoy

Room Tip: All rooms are with sea view.
