Pemba is a step closer to paradise, a place for aviators, travelers, storytellers, business men with unusual businesses with a Portuguese flavor and an edge of the Indian Ocean. When we landed for the first time in Pemba, we where stunned by the wonderful location, the room view on the ocean and the moon was full, and the drinks and... More

Had my second stay in Pemba and took one of the new apartment which is fantastic. Brand new with all amenities. I can really recommend that. The Restaurant Club Naval is a very busy venue, seems the place to be in Pemba. Great food and good service

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in August as part of a business trip. First impressions of the hotel were good and staff seemed freindly. As the days went by the attitude of the staff changed. Some of the Front desk staff lied to myself and a colleague about prices. The room service staff were useless and goodness knows... More

Excellent quick service, staff very good. Room was ok (could be cleaner), but with a fantastic view over the ocean. The sea food resturant (not the one in the main hotel) was superb, food was excellent and service very good here as well. Breakfast was also very good. Stayed only one night transitting through Pemba.

We stayed in the new family villas at Pemba Beach Hotel & Spa on 6 May for 2 nights. These suites have everything! Our kids were impressed with the hotel's gym, commuting on the golf cars and they loved the infinity pool. Although the hotel was fully booked during our stay, you would not have known it because there is... More
