We visitted Kilima Kidogo in March, and we loved the relaxing place! But the kitchen then needed some improvement. We came back this weekend with some other Norwegian friends, and it was AMAZING!!! Among the best meals I've eaten in Zanzibar (and we have now lived here for 5 months). The place is also one of the most relaxing places...

Basic but what do you want when you have got this place right on the fantastic beach. Okay would be good to provide free water but it does not cost much to buy anyway. Dina was lovely and escorted us on two trips to Stone Town to include giant tortoises and a trip to the coral reef to include snorkelling....

very friendly owner and staf; basic hostel, a bit remote from the places where it actually happens (walking along the moonlit beach to get there, a bit of hassling from not unfriendly locals) ; good breakfast (banana pancakes!) and good food. nice pool.

It has been a year since our stay at Dina's Kilimakidogo Hotel. We were booked at another hotel which was horrendous, and Dina was so kind to take us in at the last minute. I have saved so long for our very special family holiday and was so disappointed by our previous hotel and I think Dina could see this...

The guesthouse located in the south of Paje beach. Perfect if you aren't after kite surfing. The room is specious and simple (with air-con) Few points i think worth noting: -any food or drinks (including water) are not allowed in the room. No water is provided even for teeth brushing and a water bottle cost here $3 (4 times more...

We at KK take every review very seriously. Some we can respond to, and others we do not have to respond to,... like in this case. Our guests that stayed the same time in the house had the following comments in our comment book, and then we know the problem is not us, but rather a bad planning on budget...

This has to be up there with one of the best holidays I have ever had, and that has an awful lot to do with Dina the owner. From the moment I arrived (tired from a 20 hour journey) in the blistering heat, I was welcomed with a huge smile from Dina and the worries and stress of life started...
