At the beginning we had big problems: we made a reservation directly on the hotel web sites half a year in advance. We gave our credit card details and on the next day our credit card was charged the exact amount of money. From this moment the problems started. Mrs. Daniela D´Annunzio from Ora Hoteles Group repeatedly sent us emails... More

We were 2 nights at the Hakuna Majiwe and had a lot of fun. The beach is lovely and you can walk safely to both ways and see the Paje side (north) and Jambiani side. Each room has a great hammock and sofa on the balcony which we used extensively. The hotel provides 3 generous meals that were very good... More

Pros: - Very friendly local staff - beautiful, clean and wide beach - tides make for some amazing color changes of the sea throughout the day - pretty resort made with local material - pretty grounds with nice vegetation - good location away from the maddening crowd but still within a pleasant stroll to the village of Paje. - mostly...

The service, location etc is absolutely great. The beach is clean (and that is not everywhere in Zanzibar). The bedrooms are nice and enough space for clothes etc. The food is mainly Italian, there might be more variation in the food. Sometimes nice dance0acts during dinner. We had a great time!

We arrived as a family of four (2 adults 2 children) having booked and paid in full 6 months earlier only to be told there was no room for us and fobbed off with an excuse about a 'technical' problem. We specifically chose Paje for kite-surfing and a beach bungalow holiday but were told the only option available to us... More

Dear customer has written a review without being a guest in our house, how to write as the service without actually trying it. You must not publish reviews of alleged holiday stays. Thanks anyway. best regards Alessandro Zanetti More

My wife and I stayed in Hakuna Majiwe for our last vacation night after a very unfortunate experience in Coral Rock Hotel just down the coast in Jambiani. Right from our arrival General Manager Giovanni made sure that we inmediately felt at home, that we regained the Zanzibar traquility feeling and that we could relax to the fullest extent. The...

If paradise on earth exists, this places comes really close! Wake up and fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing against the reef. Take off your shoes as soon as you arrive and forget about them till you leave. Masai staff are welcoming and friendly. White sand, turquoise waters. Personal bungalows with private terrace and "magical" hammock. Not... More

Jonny, Claudia and the team were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We arrived very late at night due to a flight delay and were greeted with a drink and a smile. I took my shoes off there and then and didn’t put them back on until we left 7 days later. The staff were SO NICE!! The... More

Overall we had a good holiday here but only because we checked out trip advisor and realised that dinner at the hotel would be poor. So we went B & B and ate at the guest house next door where the Swahili food is excellent. We had one evening meal at the hotel but the food was expensive and very... More

I am afraid that I simply can't advise anyone to go to this resort. There were some good things about it but the overall experience was desperately disappointing. My family and I were having a very special holiday and Hakuna Majiwe was to be its culmination. After a magical vist to Saadani Game Lodge on mainland Tanzania and then a... More
