Green and Blue was a dream come true! Situated on a beautiful section of the beach you can gaze out over the turqoise waters from the restaurant or one of the three fabulous pools! Since the location is within a local fishing village you can also watch as local fishermen prepare their boats and work to bring in fish to... More

Our honeymoon stay at Green and Blue was everything we hoped for and more! It was like arriving at an oasis after travelling to Green and Blue from the airport (1 hour trip)... literally a little piece of heaven in the middle of Matemwe village. The resort is the perfect size, without too many guests or children to disrupt your... More

Green and Blue Ocean Lodge gave us one week of happiness and relaxation. Excellent bungalows, service and surroundings. A tips is to buy snacks, sun lotion and everything you need for a week since there are no stores, restaurants (except to excellent restaurant at Green and Blue Ocean Lodge) nearby.

I was scrolling down the reviews and I can't believe what I've read below (referring to some of the bad reviews). I could be very short about my Green and Blue experience: ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. But I won't, as I feel the need to rectify some of the reviews below. When it comes to the bungalows, these are of an absolute... More

We choose to stay 7 nights in August, 2013 in this small resort after doing hours and hours of research on the web and it was a great choose! Some of our highlights: > the bungalow: great big bungalows with plunge pool, nice terrace in front, a hammock for two, huge beds and 2 showers (in- & outdoor). The bungalow... More

We stayed at Green and Blue for 4 nights. Despite the fact that the bungalows are nicely made, everything else is below average. First of all when we arrived at 10.30pm there was noone at reception and a security guy was sleeping on a chair at reception. That's not really a warm welcome. But our biggest surprise was when we...

We've just stayed at Green and Blue for 12 nights which made us almost residents there, but we are fully reloaded. After a 5 day safari with our 2 young daughters (4 and 2 years old) we went for total relaxation in a form we like to call fun-sun-beach! The cottages are all eaqually nice, some are more expensive because... More

Hi I read an earlier review which expressed much the same view as ours. This is a five star resort, priced as such which is the basis for my review. First, the bungalows and the whole hotel area are truly lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed lying by the well designed pool area. The management staff is friendly and except for the... More

We stayed at the lodge for two nights in what initially seemed comfortable bungalows, each at a reasonable distance from one another. However, our first impressions turned out wrong. The bungalows were infested with uncountable mosquitoes. They were... More
