Air con was working well and they even put mosquito repellent in the room which was a plus for me. Hotel is good both business... More

Had a two night stay to attend conference. Promoted as a five star, but it is really a good three star hotel. The beds just about OK, and the WiFi intermittent. Good breakfast and a beautiful setting on the beach. The service at the bar overlooking the beach was really bad, and had to complain twice to floor manager.

The location is awesome and food is excellent, be it breakfast or dinner. Staffs are very keen to impress but need some training. Rooms are good enough, though I was disturbed by my neighbors speaking loudly and yelling. They have a decent gym and swimming pool at edge of sea. I stayed there for 2 nights.

I was staying at the Pemba Beach in 2012 and again this year. Now management now but the place is still the same, with a few modernizations like flat screen tv's.

We were a group of 7 travelers on our way back from a fishing trip. We spent one night at the resort, food and service was excellent and the spa was magnificent. Would have loved to spent and extra day! Rooms are comfortable with great views. The gardens needed to be spruced up a bit it looked very dry
