Very nice bungalows on a very peaceful beach. Food was fine and reasonably priced - fortunately as it was Ramadan and there weren't any outside options! If you want action it's not really the place, though there's kite surfing etc a bit down the coast. Nice little pool

What a fantastic hotel! We travelled here from Nungwi for the second, more chilled out part of our holiday and that is exactly what we got. If you want bars, lots of places to eat out and lots of people then this isn't the place for you. However if you want some peach and quiet, amazing views, the beach right...

The resort was excellent by budget standards and the personal really friendly and helpful and they all provided a personal touch to the visit. I do not dare to name all personal here since I would surely forget somebody. We had a great time during our 10 days at the resort. It is located in between Jambiani and Paje. It...

We had a very relaxing time here, chilling out on the hammocks and walking on the beach. The bungalows are incredibly basic, a bed, an open shower, and a terrace which is rarely used for anything new other than drying towels and swimwear. The food isn't fantastic however given the location there aren't many other options as the high tide...

I loved this place - just paradise! Had a cottage just on the beach for a week. It was hot and sticky in the room and the showers werent the best but I didnt mind. Its such a beautiful and tranquil place. And the food was amazing, I never had a bad meal here. Will go back one day.

I LOVED everything about the hotel. The hotel is amazing- big rooms with patios, hammocks all over the property, a lovely pool and lounge chairs and umbrellas. The hotel has a real local feel to it, which I prefer over huge resorts. It is on a quiet spot on the beach- not in town so its not a high traffic...

Mbuyuni Beach in Jambiani was a great place to stay. The surroundings are beautiful but like all places on the east coast the tide is massive. When the tide is low you can´t really swim in the ocean. But the hotel has a really nice pool and there are lots of daytrips to do during low tide. The restaurant serves...

What a beatifull place on the island off Zanzibar. It is not 5 star but the Banda was right on the beach with everything we needed. The food was amazing with the menu changing every day. Order your food in the morning to avoid waiting too long. The staff was amazing and nothing was to much for them even warm...
