We stayed four nights here after two weeks of safari's. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The chef and his staff serve wonderful meals. My wife and I enjoyed the pool area and our "interesting" suite! Everything is clean and comfortable. The beach is beautiful, but swimming is difficult due to the barrier reef off-shore and the sea urchins... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014 after a week of safari drives. This place is a home away from home. I stayed in a perfect little bungalow just a few metres from the beach (everything at this hotel is a few metres from the beach) and had the best time. From the time that you arrive to... More

We stayed for three nights at Matemwe Beach and it was just perfect:) We were welcomed warmly and everyone was friendly and helpful. All the food was delicious and served in various locations - in the restaurant, by the pool and in one of the little shelters on the beach itself! We enjoyed just relaxing on the beach, watching beautiful... More

We stayed at Matemwe for four nights. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the food was good. As it was full moon the low low tides made swimming in the ocean difficult. The pool was small, but allowed you to cool off. In addition, it was the windy season which made for big waves and difficult snorkelling. However,... More

I stayed 2 nights and 3 days here. Booked over the phone with Ali who helped arrange taxi from Stone Town. The entirety of the staff I met were warm and helpful. Munisi made me feel comfortable from the minute I arrived and answered all my questions. Chef Mike does a great job and is fun to chat with as... More

From the moment we arrived until we left,(with quite a few crying), everything was stunning. The staff and gail and ali were so friendly and the chef Mike was superb! Nothing was ever too much trouble and the... More

This place is great, the people, food, location and overall vibe. Everyone is very professional and helpful. I did a few dives with One Ocean dive company which was an amazing experience. My instructor was very thorough, he provided a lot of information on the dive locations, what to expect and all about the marine life we spotted.

My wife and I stayed at Matemwe Beach as part of a month long honeymoon over Christmas 2013. I need to start with the positives: the pool area is good and food overall was very positive. They made a big effort at Christmas and it showed - the dinner spread was great. They also have themed nights which allow guests... More

givemeanisland, General Manager at Matemwe Beach Village, responded to this review

We thank this guest for his many positive remarks. It is true that on his return he approached his tour operator seeking a refund on the basis of his complaints as outlined in this review. The operator in question sends us 100s of bookings a year and both they and us take any complaints very seriously indeed. However, on a... More

We have tried a couple of other places on the island, in Stone Town and down south, but this is such a good location and the resort is great value for money compared to the neighbors and quite a cool understated place to hang out. The different areas for relaxing, sunbathing, lounging in the pools… The staff are excellent, well... More
