We stayed at Twisted Palms 6 days in the beginning of January. It was great.
Unfortunately I got ill (bad fever), so most of the days we had to stay at Twisted Palms. I almost was glad to be ill - could there be a better place in the world to just stay and relax! Renate and Laura were very helpful, not only with medication, but with whatever we asked about.
And the staff - so nice, warm and friendly, all of them. I saw that Flora was mentioned in another review, yes, she is lovely. Rachid, the chef, has got a lot of cred in several reviews, and he is just that good. The cuisine is excellent and much more than you expect to find on the beach of Bwejuu!
There are two women selling stuff in a small shop just outside the restaurant. Salama is one of them and she was also very nice and great to talk to. And the prices in the shop are right!
We stayed in a hill bungalow. It was very clean (nice flowers every day o the bed!), nice and quiet. Just a few steps from the beach. For us it was perfect.
We have travelled a lot to different continents and Twisted Palms is definitely one of top 5. I read the bad review from January. Let me comment on that: Twisted Palms is not Hilton, and I hope it never will be. If your looking for expensive luxury, don´t go to Twisted Palms. But if your looking for nice people, friendly atmosphere, clean and simple accomodation (simple - but you have everything you need) on a very special beach (yes, with tides) - why don´t you try Twisted Palm!
We really hope to come back!
