We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pole Pole. We were welcomed with champagne for our honeymoon. All of the staff were very nice and the food was pretty good. The food service was pretty slow on the first night, but other than that we had a great time. The bungalows are definitely rustic, but comfortable. There was a nice little beach and the dive school came every night to help plan excursions for the following day. Definitely a great stay!
What an amazing place we booked our trip through tribes travel they were fantastic! The place is so peaceful the bungalows lovely , food great 👍 but most off all the staff really look after you , Malaika looked after us making sure we got the most out off our stay she went above and beyond when my luggage went missing she spent her day off tracking it down eventually it was found at Nairobi airport we couldn’t thank her enough we were so grateful! 😊 the whole purpose off the trip was to swim with the whale sharks it was fantastic we will never forget it ! The dive centre next door ( big blue ) we’re really good my husband really enjoyed his diving ! Hopefully one day hope to return but it is now ticked off our bucket list , thanks 🙏 so much to all for a fantastic holiday .
The rooms were marvellous, unique wiht a private swimmingpool so nice. I travelled with my friend, we truly enjoyed. The place is more for couples though and/or who is more keen to rest peacefully. The food was also quite tasty so as the drinks quite nice.
We spent seven very comfortable nights at Pole Pole. Lovely rooms with great sea views (and breezes) from the balcony of each wooden bungalow. Nice Italian style food, lovely staff, super massage. We came for the excellent diving but there are lots of other activities available. Snorkelling with whale sharks was a highlight.
Forget all you worries and relax when you walk through the Pole pole gates and are welcomed by peace, quiet, kindness, seclusion and an overpowering beautiful nature. The rooms, gardens, the restaurants and the beach are all designed to give you whatever space you may need to feel happy and one with nature. The welcoming owners and staff make you feel pampered and at home simultaneously. A truly special experience out of the beaten paths.
Really nice, very quiet, staff great. With a maximum of 17 (?) guests and facilities and staff to cope with many more we were very well looked after. Food was great, once we figured out not to order all the courses and shared some, otherwise it was way too much!
Was very clean and inviting. The rooms were spacious and the wind from the ocean was enough to keep you very comfortable and relaxed. We loved hanging out on our terrace. The staff was courteous and accommodating. We loved every minute. A paradise and a 5 minute walk to the dive center. We couldn’t be happier.
We had a lovely stay in a beautiful lodge with a stunning garden, bungalows with all you need to enjoy your holidays and a super friendly and helpful staff. We didnt miss air conditioning because temperature was not too warm at all times. Everything was super clean.
We stayed at Pole Pole for 5 nights after the Kilimanjaro and Safari Tours. The garden and the bungalows are beautiful and well taken care of. The food is a mix of Italian and local kitchen with a lot of seafood but also vegetarian options. The staff is super friendly and tries to meet everyone’s wishes. Furthermore the included activities are fun and also the diving centre is right next to the lodge. For us it was the perfect place for a couple of relaxed days and we enjoyed it a lot.
great staff, great food and a great location. Wonderful massages and our villa was delightful. Fans in the bedrooms, plenty of hot water and screens on all the windows. Evenings spent discussing the days adventures with the other guests in the lounge area. WiFi is only available by the reception area and is spotty but for an extra charge you can have a router put in your villa. The staff was very helpful when we had some travel issues with flight changes. Resort works closely with Mafia Island Diving for all daily excursions. Planning return visit. (Note: there is a rather pricey marine park fee per day per person just to be at the resort...regardless of whether you are diving or not. Your cab driver from the airport will stop at a booth before you get to the hotel to pay this. Have your credit card ready.)…
