We had dinner here one night which was delicious! And Mohammed was really friendly and gave us a ride back to our hotel down the road. I wish I had stayed there in one of the bungalows because it was so cosy! I can definitely recommend the restaurant!

Though the rooms at Mohammed's Beach Bungalows are modest, they are clean and fairly cool in the evenings with two fans per room. Located right on the beach, you cannot beat this place for ocean access and we greatly enjoyed spending the hot afternoons in the bungalows' hammocks. Mohammed is a kind, friendly family man who is very accommodating and... More

What a great find, we spent 7 nights here with our family. The rooms are basic but clean, they have comfortable beds, mosquito nets and fan, en suite bathroom, small patio. The garden is very pretty, the rooms are located behind the restaurant. We ate the best food in Zanzibar here, Mohammed cooks with love and passion and each dish... More

Stayed for 3 nights and was very pleased! It's right on the beach, the rooms are simple but clean and not to expensive. It is run by a family which makes a welcoming atmosphere. Mohammed is very helpful and arranges for most things - pick up, bikes, diving and even snacks from Stone Town. The food served is simple and... More

This small and friendly place is located right on the beach. Rooms are basic, but comfortable and have a fan and a hot shower. Good and filling breakfast was included and they do really good food for lunch and dinner (definitely try the seafood dishes!). For wifi you can go the the place next door. Good choice if you like...

This was a good place to stay. Basic rooms, but nice and the complex was overall very nice. Dont believe the guidebooks - this isnt set back from the beach. It is on it. I would say that the price was a bit high considering what it was, but it was safe and nice. By comparison, Key's Bungalows just down... More

We stayed 3 nights to mohammed´s hostel in a bungalow. It was a very pleasant time. The staff is friendly, the food is excellent at low prices. We had a bungalow with 2 double beds for 50$, breakfast with nutella included. The place is clean and quite. You can ask for a taxi to stone town for 35$. Don't forget... More

The bungalows are really simple, with no hot water and no A/C. Anyway, they are comfortable and quite clean and all beds and windows have nets. Mohammed’s family is awesome and welcoming, you will feel very comfortable in staying at their place! The location is perfect and relaxing: the bungalows are close to a white paradisiac beach and are provided... More

I stayed in Mohammeds beach bungalows for three nights in June. They arranged a taxi to collect me from Zanzibar airport and the taxi man Harry was very helpful and friendly. Mohammed and his family are lovely and very welcoming. The bungalows are great, I paid single rate and had one all to myself with two beds and an en... More

We originally booked Mohammed's for an initial four nights, and even though I had to change the booking a couple times via email with Mohammed, he was totally cool and helpful throughout the booking process. We inquired about a car to pick us up at the Zanizbar airport, and Mohammed sent his friend Harry, who was excellent and showed us... More
