This is a small hotel with a personal touch. I want to praise the breakfasts, they are very plentiful - there is a wide choice of what to eat. There are fruits and juices. I would recommend the option with breakfast and supper included. There is a fee for bringing in fruits bought outside the hotel and cutting them, but no one strictly monitors these, so this is on your conscience ;-). The beach is very clean compared to the village one, it is constantly cleaned. The hotel staff does not allow the locals from the village to bother vacationers. Local children sometimes play football on the beach, but this only creates color and does not interfere at all. It should be borne in mind that the tide is strong enough here and it is comfortable to swim only at a certain time following the tide. The rest of the time you can go diving, which I did, ride a bike around the village, go on excursions. In terms of taxi services and excursions, I recommend Abraham, his WhatsApp# +255 779 504 683.

Room Tip: I liked the rooms in block C on the first floor, they are located right next to the beach.

We are a group of 7 friends and we spent 10 days in this hotel. It was amazing! Nice staff, lonely beach, incredible dinners with seafood. Also rooms are very clean & have a good seaview from a balcony We enjoyed our staying in Tanzania and we can recommend this hotel to visit, stay and relax without noisy crowd in Nungwi or Stown Town. Just come and see it :)) Angie & Gaetano, muchissimissimos gracias por nuestro viaje a Zanzi! Nos gustó un montón su hotel, cenas y su preocupación :*** Nos veremos en Rusia :D Elena

We rested together with my husband and it was wonderful! wonderful hotel and all thanks to the managers - Angie and Gaetano! We liked you very much, and solved the problems quickly and very patiently. although many of the tourists did not behave very correctly ... this is Africa, they turned off the electricity, there are no shops nearby, but this is rest and it should be wonderful and relaxed! thanks for the rest!

My wife and I spent 5 nights here recently.We truly had an amazing stay.The location was great ,just a few steps and you’re on the beach.The rooms were clean and modern.The restaurant was lovely ,good selection of food/drinks and the dinner menu changed daily which was cool.The atmosphere was very chilled ,huge shaded sunbeds on the sand and and a nice pool.The hotel is located in a quieter/peaceful part of the island which I enjoyed,you can walk down a long stretch of beach and explore Matemwe village.Getting to the the more touristy beaches (Nungwi,Kendwa,Paje) requires a taxi and are about 30-45 mins away.Mnemba Island is visible from the hotel so if you’re planning to go swimming with the dolphins and snorkeling/diving at Mnemba then this is about the best place to stay ,we took a boat from the beach outside the hotel ,the ride to the dolphins and Mnemba was a lot quicker than doing it from most other places on the island . Lastly ,I have to mention the staff at Dreams Bay who really made the entire stay a pleasure,and the wait staff at the restaurant(Mamoud ,Jumah,Irene,Francis & Elisabeth) were especially cool and friendly .Highly recommend!
