Pros: The location, the staff. Cons: Aircon and fridge noise on the room is a bit annoying if you need silence to sleep, a bit more options on lunch menu, not charging for local calls. Location: Paje beach is one of the bests, there are some movement around, between hotels and locals. Ideally you should rent a car and drive...

Nice and clean rooms in accordance with photos seen on Trip Advisor. Decent food at their restaurant. Beach menu as well and brought to you. Great for a lunch nibble at the beach.

The Dhow Inn in Paje, Zanzibar is an excellent hotel to stay! The perfect place to relax. Everything was well organized, the staff were just amazing and very welcoming! We purchased the full board during our holiday. The dinner is 'a la carte' and served on the table! The beach is close to the hotel with a private area!
