The food from the bar is great and they also prepare great fresh juice. The rooms is all you need; clean, mossie net, comfortable,... More

We (group of 5 friends) stayed here in September 2013 and really enjoyed it. The rooms are quite expensive for what they are but they were clean, had a fan and mossie nets so they did the job. We shared a bathroom with the other guests which was absolutely fine for us. The people who run it are very nice,... More

The new management is lovely, friendly staff and good food. They helped me arranging transportation and trips and included me in their bonfire/drum nights. Relaxing days at a backpacker's heaven, I will come back!

No hot water 2/3 days. Last night i asked to lower down the bar music (1am) and the they barely touched the volume. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with friends whilst travelling around Zanzibar. Jambiani was my personal favourite area in Zanzibar. This beach inn was superbly located with just a 30 second walk from bedroom to beautiful white sandy beach! Very relaxed atmosphere and the owner 'chubby' was very chilled out and welcoming. Bar and restaurant situated on the beach, as well... More

Food arrived after 45 minutes and portions were halved becuase the had to satisfy a double number of people on the food availability. When we protested they aswered it... More

We didn't spend the night in the Kimte Beach, but could enjoy their bar! I think is the most popular bar in Jambiani: relax environment, good music, fires on the beach every night, and real rastafari men! Nice and friendly staff, good drinks and food. I have to say that our food took two hours to appear on our table...... More
