  • My room with a view (but, helas, the only one) The location on beautiful beaches of Zanzibar Runs along the beach The most amazing massage! Very warm and welcoming owners, managers and all staff at the hotel Smallness of the place and lovely spaces to lounge, swim, visit Good food (we only went "out" once and that was only for an apero just next door)

  • Great location- beautiful, white sandy beach with natural pool right out front of the hotel. The grounds were very nice and well maintained. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. Food was pretty good although fairly pricey when there's a good place down the beach (turn left when leaving hotel to the beach, called Seles Bungalows) that offers a variety for less. Staff were always around and helpful although the language barrier was a problem at times.

  • Absolutely love this place. Beautiful, comfortable bungalows right on the beach. The tours are very affordable compared to other places, and I even got to swim with a huge pod of dolphins on the snorkelling trip! The place is super cute, the food is amazing, and there are delicious cocktails and fruit juices to sip on while you laze around in a hammock or watch the sea. The internet connection is the fastest I've encountered in Tanzania.

  • Zanzibar is poor and to get to every hotel you have to go through the town. . This one is worth it! Beautiful place on the beach with white sand and a nice coral cove. The bungalows are awesome (although no ocean views) you can hear the ocean and each one has veranda and garden!

Matemwe Lodge Excellent 8.9 I loved the room! We had a mezzanine floor with another doube bed, so perfect for sharing with a friend. There was a hammock outside to relax on whilst watching the fisherman go by. The food was amazing and the staff were wonderful. We also had full board which included all drinks so there were lots of cocktails by the pool! Staff were very friendly and helpful. I had a dietry requirement and the chef was very accommodating.
Sunshine Hotel Zanzibar Excellent 8.8 The staff is attentive to your every need- outstanding service. Paradise grounds- beautiful gardens and pools. The restaurant is also first class with a menu that changes with every meal. I recommend taking a walk around Matemwe village, and riding the bike up and down the beach.
Villa Kiva Boutique Hotel Wonderful 9 The food was lovely - try the white fish wrapped in banana leaf with papaya. Nothing felt like too much trouble and there was a really nice atmosphere. Hotel backs onto the beach - glorious views.
Matemwe Retreat
Azanzi Beach Hotel Very good 8.3 The staff is great, relaxed and very helpfull. In every circumstance the management and team did everything to help the guests. The room was spacious, clean and felt like coming home. Food was good, especially the Friday BBQ night. Also the on-site diving center was a great plus, with great trips to the Mnemba atoll. All in all a great stay for 5 days in January.
Zanzibar House Excellent 8.8 First class hospitality! Super comfy bed. Immaculately clean everywhere. Amazing food and top class service provided by all the staff!
Green and Blue Ocean Lodge Excellent 8.6 Everything was excellent. I was traveling alone, and the staff made me feel very at home and looked after through great service and attention to little details. The food was also really good, fresh, and included a large and diverse breakfast. The location is breathtaking, and the spacious, quiet bungalows are nestled in beautiful and lush vegetation for lots of privacy. They have a couple of pools, one of which has views over the sea. The spa was relaxing, and I had a wonderful massage there. The hotel was also well positioned to visit Mnembe Island which is visible from the beach, if you want to snorkel or dive in Zanzibar's best location. I'll definitely go back to Green & Blue!
Panga Chumvi Beach Resort Good 7.4 Panga Chumvi was everything it promised and more. Located on a spectacular white sand beach with views of the Indian Ocean breaking on the far reef, it would be possible just to sit on the beach all day long. The rooms are simple, spacious, and very comfortable. The food is excellent. Rebecca was more than helpful in giving advice on all kinds of activities and making arrangements. I could easily stay there for a month!
Sunshine Marine Lodge Very good 8.5 Everything...friendly, helpful staff, wonderful location (there is no beach so no "beach tourists"), and a dedicated dive center with quick access to magical dive sites.
Kasha Boutique Hotel Exceptional 9.7 If you're looking for a romantic getaway, Kasha is the place for you. Matemwe beach is unspoiled, quiet, clean and has very friendly locals. Kasha is the best of Matemwe. The staff are very good at what they do and the food is excellent. The villas are spacious, clean and very comfortable. I'll definitely be back.
Tamani Villas
Zanzibar Retreat Hotel Wonderful 9.2 We spent in Zanzibar Retreat 5 nights in the beginning of February'15. This was one of my most enjoyable experience in my life. We have arrived very late at night - a very nice welcome surprise was waiting for us in our room: fresh fruits and some sandwiches aligne with a note from Karine - Assistant Manager - informing us that we dont have to worry about getting up on early for breakfast :-) Zanzibar Retreat is a small boutique hotel with rather simple yet hight quality facilities. Top highlights of the stay: - excellent service (Karine you made our stay!) - simply delicius food - I loved their pool - hotel atmosphere in general: calm and peacefull
Zanzibar Bahari Villas Excellent 8.8 Place was very new looking. Staff cleaned the rooms well. Manager is very friendly and helpful. No alcohol is available however. All in all wonderful stay!
