I was pretty happy at Paje Beach Bungalows. My room -- my bungalow, that is -- was very clean, airy, and comfortable. I appreciated the good mosquito net, as there were a lot of mosquitoes at night. The bathroom was in great repair, and everything worked fine.
I took all my meals there as well. The food was not fantastic, but it was quite good, particularly the breakfasts and the lunchtime curries. Dinner was occasionally very good, but more often just okay. The service was fine. Staff were pleasant and helpful. They served excellent coffee, brewed rather than instant, which pleased me a lot. The restaurant/lounge area was always kept scrupulously clean.
The best part was my beachside hammock, and the adjoining table, chairs, and lounges to sit in and watch the tide ebb and flow. If you're looking to spend a few quiet days just sitting at the seaside, reading and watching the waves, this is a great place to do it. If I ever return to Zanzibar's east coast, I'm sure I will stay at Paje Beach Bungalows again.
