We stayed at Maruhubi for 2 nights. It was okay, it had very lovely gardens and a nice pool, it but wasn't selling beer (we had to trek next door) and our room was in the back next to the mozzie-tastic tidal creek. The food was very good though and I appreciated the waiter chasing away all the manky stray... More

Originally booked to stay here through a hotel portal (not sure if I can name it on here) for 5 nights and paid a deposit. Cancellation policy according to the portal was 'contact the hotel directly'. Giving at least 2 weeks notice, I changed my booking at Maruhubi from 5 nights to one, contacting Maruhubi directly as per the insturctions.... More

When we flew in to Zanzibar Island, we asked our cab driver to take us somewhere close to Stonetown but still nice because we were only stying one night. He brought us to Maruhubi Beach Villas and since this was in February, the tourist traffic was insanely quiet. I think we were the only ones there. We immediately fell in... More

Situated a five minute drive from the centre, Maruhubi Beach Villas is a peaceful place to relax between visits to the fascinating and picturesque Stone Town. half a minute's walk to the beautiful sand beach opening up to the Zanzibar Channel with a lovely view of, amongst others, Changu and Grave Island. The small and pleasant villas at Maruhubi all... More

After spending 2 nights in Stonetown, we spent 2 nights here and were very glad we did. Being at the beach was relaxing and quiet, a perfect complement to bustling Stonetown. Maruhubi is a place to really relax and we did. We had a large room with a wrap-around sea view (#1). The room was very comfortable with a casual... More

Me and my husband stayed at Maruhubi Beach Villas in February 2011 for 4 days. So this review is long overdue but it has to be done!! But we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was absolutely brilliant! I am sorry for the experience of the reviewer from Paris, but I have to disagree because Juma was an EXCELLENT HOST... More

We have just left Maruhubi Beach Resort and have a wonderful few days. We very much wished we could have stayed longer, and will be back in the future. Maruhubi is very conveniently located for Stone Town, but feels like a peaceful haven away from the city. Juma the manager is a wonderful host who made us feel very at... More

This hotel does a great job making guests feel welcome. Great pool on the ocean (open 24 hours) a plus for great night and morning swims. Great service when you request anything and the manager really wants to make you feel comfortable (he's even willing to let you use the office for internet). Food was good, rooms comfortable (and air... More

NEVER try to stay in this hotel unless you turn up on the day and they have accomodation. The rooms are very nice and they have a good loation and facilities but is totally let down but the unreliable way it is run by the manager, Juma. We booked 3 rooms for one night during a very busy period in... More

Perfect little hotel if you fancy staying in the outskirts of Stone Town for a short break, with friendly, helpful staff to accomodate your stay. Provides a peaceful refuge away from the hustle of Stone Town; swimming pool with sea alongside - great for cooling off after a day of sight-seeing in the town. You can either get to Stone... More
