Pleasant property with a gracious staff. Our room was upgraded for free to the beachfront bungalow. The manager was extremely helpful with insight into how to navigate snorkeling, taxis, etc. The food was delicious. Nice clean room with good wi-fi. The pool was nice too.

We stayed here for 11 days and enjoyed our stay very much. The people that work here are super and nothing is too much for them to do for you to make your stay memorable.The villas were perfect, ours was right near the beach. There is a swimming pool, jacuzzi, hammocks etc. The restaurant is good too, the chef is willing to cook you what you want and food off the menu is also good. We loved our stay here it was peaceful and good to travel around the rest of the island and feel we made a great decision to stay where we stayed. Will go back despite the electric failures

We went there for lunch and had the most incredible service! Everyone was super nice and made sure we were updated on wait times and all options on the menu. The environment is beautiful and culturally decorated. The restaurant is in front of the beach with views to the ocean. It was calm and relaxing to sit there and have drinks while waiting for our food. They also gave my son some fruit while waiting. Everything was delicious and presentation was perfect! Even thought we waited a long time for the food, it was worth it! The lady who served us was super nice! The manager was also nice and welcoming! Their fresh fruit juices were also incredible! Definitively a good choice for lunch or dinner in Matemwe beach.

Stayed here for 4 nights. The rooms were great, very clean and the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and the complimentary shampoo smelled super good!! The owners really care about their guests: every time we saw them they would make sure everything was ok. The staff was also friendly and helpful. The beach is clean and there were always beach beds available. I would have been so happy had they had a pool (there was a lot of algae in the sea and at low tide the water was a little far...). Also, the food was not always the tastiest but that was very variable (pasta with mushrooms was delicious but the pesto penne was about a 2/10).
