Aleksandar the Great Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 2 Pongwe B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 May 2011

Very good food, staff are plaesant, relaxable, clean, very good beach for east Zanzibar (but not that long). Nice and fresh rooms. Cheap. You get much for the money on the room, restaurant are more mordarete prices (found that on all Zanzibar, food are not that good price). The fruit juice are my favourite and all the seafood with mordern Zanzibar taste!

You can reach the wather all time and is not low low wather. We found it Better than Matemwe. But be careful when you book hotel in Pongwe, the beach on the other side of the village are very bad, can´t swim. We change to this hotel after 1 night. It´s a small hotel and you feel almost alone on paradise. Pongwe don´t have people that try to sell things to you all the time on the beach, its very silient. No party. The village are poor and most people work as fisherman.
We love our stay!

We stayed two nights in Aleksander The Great Beach Resort. It is a very pleasend place located directly at a lonely beach. The entire Resort was refurbished recently and is mantained in good state. The management and staff is very friendly and helpful. The children where very welcome and thus it was a relaxing time also for the parents! The dishes were fantastic and we loved the fresh melon-pineapple juice for breakfast. We highly recommand this Resort to everybody looking for some relaxing days on Zanzibar at a reasonable price.
