10/10 Exceptional

Uhuru, the owner of this place, was very welcoming and any request was fulfilled within minutes. Bungalows are very clean, swimming pool as well. Lots and lots of space for chilling and relaxing with the view of the sea. Chefs were creating interesting and tasty dishes from Swahili kitchen. Staff was very friendly as well. This place is great for animal lovers as they have lots of cats, dogs and monkeys. Ahsante Sana!

2/10 Poor

The only thing to like was location. Based on the was we were treated, i would never recommend this place to anyone. There are ants and insects in every room, food is terrible and cold, run by men that dont even shower/wash their clothes( and they’re the same ones cooking and serving). I saw one of them breaking ice with his bare hands and putting it in someone’s cocktail. If you are black, regardless of nationality, just be aware that you will be served after all the white people are served.. and your room will have no hot water. White priviledge is real even in useless places like this. iI strongly recommend the neighboring resort ( Pakachi Beach Resort) with a pier and an island. Their food is great, hot, its clean, service is wonderful and staff are clean and friendly.

8/10 Very Good

We had a pleasant stay at a white sandy beach in a quite region between Paje and Jambiani. The hotel offered excellent meals in a daily changing variation. We loved the nice stile of the bungalows with the relaxing leisure areas with the views to the different blue colour sea and the possibilities of nice long walks at the white sandy beaches. Our 12 nights on Zanzibar in this hotel were very relaxing after visiting Tanzania and Uganda.

Good choice
Funky, low key beach resort near Jambiani. We saw several rooms, and all were very clean, although somewhat basic in terms of in-room amenities. Most have a large furnished private deck. The grounds and pool were very well-maintained. The atmosphere is very informal with lots of cool and cozy spots to relax along the beach in hammocks, lounge chairs and bed swings. The only downside is that the ocean's not ideal for swimming due to exposed rocky areas at low tide. But the pool is great! The food in the restaurant was excellent, and there are other resort restaurants within easy walking distance.

This is a lovely resort, right on the beach. The pool was clean and well kept and food of a good standard. Our stay was made even better as we were given a large house for our exclusive use, despite paying for a double room, but the standard chalet rooms were extremely comfortable.

8/10 Very Good

Great deal! Very nice, and relaxing pool. The hotel grounds were kept clean- I loved the hammocks, and lounging around areas. The room was spacious. Breakfast was standard (eggs, toast, sausage, juice, coffee/tea). Great staff! The food and drinks were a little over-priced- compared to other places in Paje. The beds weren't the most comfortable, but the hotel is a great price for what you get.
