    Matemwe and its area is a quiet place where you can relax and enjoy the beach, the activities (snorkeling, swimming with dolphins) especially if you are a couple, because the village is not very full of enterteinments or night parties.

    Crystal clear water - despite there being sea urchins - if you have rock/ aqua shoes - you can still swim and explore the waters and reefs. The beaches are a lot quieter and peaceful than the busier beaches up north. The tides are also fascinating to watch- you can walk out to the reefs and cycle along the beaches when they go out!

    Marafiki gets a 10/10 from us on all fronts - breakfast, lunch, dinner, pool, cleanliness, hospitality, music, sustainability, beach, communication. My husband and I stayed 4 nights at Marafiki after our Safari and had the most fabulous time. The rooms were very clean and quiet, and beautifully set up. The food is exceptional - please try the tuna tartar and all the specials! We had a relaxing time at the spa - you must try the full body scrub and massages. We used the free kayaks during sunset and enjoyed the stunning view from the water. The water is shallow so even if you go far, you can get off the kayak and swim. Since the hotel is east facing - sunrise is exceptionally beautiful. The water is still and shallow, and you can see all the fisherman walk up to the reef to catch the fish. The hotel also arranged a cooking lesson in Matamwe village for us - we learned how to cook ‘muchuzi’ from scratch which was a very meaningful experience. Overall- no negatives. We had the best time and will be back!

    The beach is beautiful, but it's not really a beach you can swim on - there's a big tidal range - when it comes in it's quite choppy with lots of seaweed, and when it's out its corally with lots of urchins. But it's interesting to watch the local people looking for octopus and shellfish every day. It's quite a quiet area - all the bars are part of hotels. A few nice local restaurants around. Quite a lot of beach touts, which we found off putting. Not loads of activities to do in the area - 1/2 day snorkelling/dolphin watching trips at Mnemba Island basically.

    Beautyful and quiet hotel with nice garden located in the less touristic north of the amazing white and clean beach at the east cost of Zanzibar. Very good breakfast with different choices of toasts, eggs, fruits, etc. Excellent kitchen. Frequent live music at night. Most beautiful beach. Very kind, and helpful personnel. We would like to specifically mention Magdalena, Ali, Hugo, George and Juma, who were always friendly and took excellent care of our wellbeing during our 5 days stay at the hotel.

    The hotel was perfect - room, swimming pool, garden beach area beautiful, comfortable and spacious. The dinning experiences great, even a smallest issue we had, was dealt with quickly to more than our satisfaction. All the staff at the hotel had only one wish - to ensure you had best service from them. All the senior staff like the catering managers, head chefs (Ashok and Jimmy and the rest) were always going around ensuring the guests were satisfied. We would highly recommend this hotel.

    The hotel is a piece of Zanzibar ... traditional bungalows, palm trees in the courtyard, sand and hammocks where you can feel the ocean breeze just a few steps from the hotel ... the rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel has a swimming pool where you can start in the morning or relax after lunch with a cold drink ... the beach is right in front of the hotel where there are sunbeds. I recommend traditional cuisine and fresh fruit ... the staff was friendly, a big plus for Hussein

    The staff was very friendly and super helpful, I particularly liked Mosa and Mimi. Also, the management - Eva and Sylvia were very accommodating, you could really feel the sincerity to give you the best experience in the hotel. They helped us arranged for the diving activity, and they have a lot of free activities as well to choose from - kayaking, biking, village tour, even morning yoga. all free of charge! So happy my husband chose this hotel in Matemwe.

    We only have positive experiences from Hebe Bugalow Lodge. We are a family of 4 who spent 6 nights in Zanzibar. The hotel has the best staff. They are kind, honest, helpful, and always friendly. Additionally, they serve delicious and fresh breakfast. The area is especially great because you get to experience the local community and it is not overrun with tourists. The owner, Peter, is ready to greet guests upon arrival.

    The hotel is really good and very calm, the staff is helpful and nice. Ali the captain who took me to the Mnemba island was very polite and freindly. The village is really poor, if you want to book a snorkling trip or anything else, do it at least with local people and try to help the dispensary and the school. To absolutely recommend

    Excellent view, staff is very friendly, great value for price, beach is wide and as raw as it gets. Food is good although we only had breakfast there (very basic but fresh). Staff is helpful, kind and polite. The hotel is part of a long string of hotels on that same huge coast, which you can visit randomly as they mostly allow that.

    The ocean view villas are indeed stunning, as you wake up every morning with waves crashing and your private dipping pool. The size of the villa is also amazing yet privately located. The staff were friendly. The pool area was also spectacular as you come to expect from the Zanzibar coast.
