I went to Peponi for 2 nights in July 2012 with some friends. It was a weekend and so there were a few other travellers around to chat with.
It was my first chance to have a hot shower after 2 months in a rural village, and my it was good! The hot water comes on between 5-7pm each day and the water pressure is good too.
The food is quite western, with some Tanzanian choices also.They request it to be ordered a couple hours in advance, and you can tell when you eat it that this is because it is all freshly prepared. The fish and seafood is lovely, I had Thai style fish and prawn skewers and a chilli crab pasta dish. Both were great, especially washed down with a cold beer and a chocolate brownie.
My friends and I all ate salads and sandwiches and no-one got ill or anything so I think food hygeine is good here.
The bandas are really spacious and clean, and you get your bath and beach towels provided. they have quite a polynesian, bohemian feel which I really love, but might not be to everyone's taste, but the double beds are huge and come with good quality mosquito nets.
The place has a great relaxed feel and a friendly atmosphere. The pool is small but clean. There are comfy hammocks strung from the trees where you can lie in the sea breeze reading a book. The staff were extremely friendly and willing to help although sometimes there was not always someone manning the bar.
In brief, the other facilities include - laundry service, volley ball court, dart board, safe deposit, internet room, dhow boat/snorkelling trips to the reef and sand island (paradise!!), beach side bar.
Would definately recommend this place, it's very reasonably priced and I left relaxed and refreshed.
