The location was fantastic, just off the beach with some phenomenal views. Surrounded by restaurants and bars, we were never stuck for places to eat. We regretted eating in the restaurant below to the hotel as the food took an hour to come, they got our order wrong and then they tried to over charge us. Other than that we... More

We made a reservation through booking.com for Paradise Beach Bungalows... However when we got there they refused to accept our reservation... Even when we showed it to them! The extremely unfriendly man on reception seemed completely uninterested in helping us and made us feel like the whole thing was a chore. They were fully booked so we left. Can't comment... More

These bungalows are well located on Nungwi beach but that is about all they have going for them. The staff weren't helpful or friendly. The room was small and hasn't been maintained at all. The geyser in our room didn't work so we had cold showers. The rooms don't have windows, only mosquito netting ,which would be fine if there... More

Paradise Bungalows has a great setting, right on the sea on the beautiful Nungwi beach. That's is where our positivity ends! The rooms are overpriced (as is everything in Nungwi), we had no hot water- we discovered on our last day that they hadn't bothered to turn the geyser on, it was extremely noisy, the staff are unfriendly, the wifi...

Good clean rooms in a good location with friendly helpful staff. Excellent compromise for budget traveller wanting to be in the heart of Nungwi. Food at their restaurant was some of the best around and the only place which took cards reliably

Had a lovely stay here - room is basic but clean with a fan and good water pressure! Was travelling alone and it was a really comfortable place to relax, the owners are great and friendly, and there are enough travelers around but without it being packed. Really nice with outside balcony with sea-view. Great location right at the tip,... More

My friend and I split a room for one night. We chose Paradise for the price. Although it is a cold water shower, and the faucet handles come off if you twist too much, the room was clean and perfectly sufficient for one night. I felt that the room was safe with the lock. The man at reception, Chipani?, was... More

We have stayed Paradise every year for the past 6 years and this visit was great. New management has really improved this place. Clean room ,comfortable bed and hot showers (if you need it hot!) We love the setting, a few steps to the beach or restaurant . Travelling on a budget one cant ask for more. Should you book... More

We spent 4 nights there at the low season and we could really enjoy Zanzibar without crowds. The hotel has a perfect location, near to a good restaurant and with a nice view on the ocean. The rooms were clean and big with mosquito nets. The bad point is the price, for Tanzania it is expensive, even if it is... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and were happy with the accommodation. The beds are comfortable with fairly warm showers (have to allow time to warm up). Breakfast was simple but tasty with a great view of the beach. Staff were friendly and happy to assist. The rooms on the second floor closest to Mama Mia are fairly noisy as... More
