What a great experience, we stayed 2 nights with Colin and Leslie and were made to feel completely at home. Relaxed, beautiful spot on the beach, quiet and tranquil with no beach boys bugging you outside. One of the best parts of our stay was the phenomenal food, which is prepared fresh and by hand and in fantastic quantities. The... More

Colin and Leslie are just adorable hosts. The location of their property is excellent in front of the ocean. A real gem to relax and I would add enormous value for money. I would need to fill pages to describe the excellent 3 days I spent at the lodge: the meals prepared by the hosts were amazing. Fresh fish every... More

From arrival to departure,we could not have felt more at ease. Our stay at Game Fish Lodge was the perfect place to relax and unwind by the sea. The rooms are clean and welcoming, the public areas are very comfortable and there are so many little corners to sit and read or use the wifi which is really very fast... More

Me and my friends had a great stay with Leslie and Colin. They took good care of us and treated us like family. We had so many laughs and felt right at home. And the food was great, we stayed in and had our dinner almost every night (we ate out one night). They did their best to make sure... More

Myself and my girlfriend did not stay there but enjoyed all the hospitality and lovely food Colin and Leslie had to offer in the Gamefish lodge. They were very friendly and easy going and the food we had with them was beautiful. We happened upon the place when looking for a beer during sunset and ended up returning many times... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for 8 days at the Game Fish Lodge. After having read all the 'excellent' reviews we were disappointed of the reality - most of all of the owners' behaviour and attitude.

Hi Livia Your Review. I am glad that you found Game Fish Lodge had some positive attributes. As for the negative ones let me clarify what the entire picture was. When you first arrived at 8:00am from Stone Town you were received warmly and offered breakfast for free although check-in is not until 2:00pm. Your room was prepared for you... More

The Lodge looks out onto a radiant expanse of shimmering Indian Ocean and down onto one of the finest and most unspoilt beaches.
