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

I stayed here for two nights initially and then returned for a third after a brief stay at Kendwa. The rooms were good for budget accommodation but when we arrived in our first room there was no running water. Reception quickly moved us to another room which was fine, but when I returned for the third day, again in a... More

We managed to bargain a cheap price for the dorm, so make sure you try that. Room was basic but provided all necessities as well an ensuite bathroom. Location was amazing - right on the beach and next to various restaurants/bars. Although Cholo's is right next door, so if you aren't planning on partying until the early hours then a... More

We found the Nungwi Paradise Beach Bungalows to be a wonderful retreat! The restaurant, Mama Mia, was fantastic! The food was great and the the staff very friendly and accommodating. The room was basic, but clean and nice. The beach was great and not crowded at all. The only reason I didn't rate it excellent was the Internet service. They... More

Rooms are VERY basic. A bed, thats not to comfortable and a not very clean bathroom. Electricity and water is on and off. They don't wash your room unless you tell them, and you will have to ask them for towels and toilet paper. On the upside it's cheap. Like everywhere else in Tanzania, its always worth a shot to...

The position of the Paradise on the white sand of Nungwi (so one of the best part in Zanzibar) it's for sure the only clear advantage for booking in this structure. The rooms are really basic. Bathroom dirty and without a proper shower or a decent toilette. Linen and towels dirty. At the upper level, no windows panel, so you... More
