After hearing many good things about Peponi for years, we decided to go check it out and it was soooooo worth it. The location is spot on, the food divine, the rooms comfortable and the atmosphere warm and friendly. We went on a fantastic snorkling trip with their boat and had a sand island all for ourselves - what a... More

A wonderful place to stay - run by very nice and well informed people with very kind employees, well equipped and very clean bandas, excellent food. Nice experience: a snorkelling trip on a dhow to a sandy island. Highly recommendable! Resonable prices.

We camped two nights at Peponi Beach Resort outside of Tanga on our way from Mombasa to Dar es Salaam. The gracious owners and well trained staff are terrific. Campsites are spaced well apart and come with electricity for $1.00 extra. The fresh seafood platter for two was incredible. If you are overlanding or camping your way through Africa this... More

we spent just one night at Peponi's, but it was cool! staff is willing to help you and owners are such a nice couple :) We did love too the facilities and multiple options to overnight there. Just the beach was not as expected, but i would happily go back there.

We were looking for a pleasent stay near Pangani, and we heard this side of the river was very calm and nice. In fact it is, but the location is far worse than the southern part of Pangani, than the beach is not very clean, the sand is not that white, the water is too warm,... And there is nothing... More

Peponi Beach Resort is a relaxing spot next to the Indian Ocean. Easily accessible from Tanga (a small stretch of dirty road but not something undoable). Well run by an old British couple, you can find almost anything you expect from a budget option like Peponi. Peponi means "paradise" in Kiswahili but certainly this spot is not the ultimate paradise.... More

We really enjoyed our stay here! We camped ($5 a head), which is very reasonable considering the facilities - decent hot showers, nice swimming pool, hammocks... The snorkelling trip was good fun, the beach is GORGEOUS (as nice as any we went to on Zanzibar), and the staff were all really friendly and helpful. Good food too. We ended up... More

Peponi is a nice lodge right on the beach! I stayed in a banda (private room) with 3 other friends and it was great. The price per night includes breakfast and dinner, and for lunch they have a snacks menu that will be charged extra. We stayed for 4 nights, the tides were acting strange so we went to the... More

Great relaxing location, well presented bungalows, nice food and friendly owners/staff. The only thing that spoiled it was that the seaweed had pulled in rubbish from Tanga, but there had been a lot of rain before we arrived so this may not always be the case. Otherwise a lovely stay.
