I spent an amazing week here with my partner recovering from an amazing week on safari around the Serengeti. We had a beach hut right next to the beach and near the main buildings with an outstanding view of the sun rise & set. The beach was stunning, weather amazing, they did theme nights for the buffets each evening which... More

The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The food is excellent and the staff attentive. The pool is huge, well maintained and has a swim-up bar. The hotel arranged an excellent scuba trip for me to Mnemba. Overall, I liked the place a lot, but a few minuses to be aware of: The beach is sheltered... More

Just a perfect place! Thank you so much! Staff is so smiling and friendly, always ready to help with any kind of question you have. Bungalos are nice, food is excellent, beach and ocean just fantastic. Beach boys are not annoying - just talk to them for 5 min and you'll discover interesting and different life's. All was really great!... More

We had a great stay; after an impressive safari in Tanzania, we had a week to relax at Ocean Paradise; beautiful, spacious rooms, gardens, pool and beach! Very friendly staf and good food. We enjoyed a cocktail during the happy hour every day (2 for the price of 1). And had a perfect, relaxing massage in the beautiful/luxurious spa.
