We too arrived after safari in Tanzania and were immediately welcomed and made to feel special. As we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary they upgraded us to a lovely suite and in the evening presented us with a decorated cake accompanied by all the staff singing and dancing. Today we were treated to a candle lit dinner on the... More

This was our second visit to MBV and it was as wonderful and memorable as the first time we visited in 2012! Everything about this place makes for a perfect experience of Zanzibar Island, from the sympathetic design of the bungalows nestled in the palms and gardens, the delicious food, to watching the changing ocean landscape on your doorstep.

Arriving at this hotel we thought it looked like paradise. A palm roofed reception and restaurant/bar curves around a crystal blue pool, next to a palm fringed beach. And as far as lying by the pool and eating goes, paradise is a pretty good description. (don't worry if a goat wanders in to the pool area - they seem to... More

We arrived here after 6 days on safari and it was a great place to come to. Located on the beach the views were stunning and the place itself beautiful. We were shown to our very quiet lodge 2 steps from the beach, it was perfect. The room was very clean, we had a couple of issues there with the... More

We stayed 5 nights end july in this very quiet lodge. Upon arrival a little disappointed about the room with ocean view, as the ocean was hardly seeable through the dense vegetation in front. Yet, it was very near and only a few steps away. We found our room very basic and with a heavy bad smell coming from the... More

I had heard about Matemwe Beach Village from a friend who had been there 4/5 years ago and raved about it! When I went to book it through an agent I was booking some group stuff with..I was discouraged with the explanation that it had changed hands and was run down and not well managed. I booked at the Matemwe... More

We got a Dive & Stay package with One Ocean Dive Centre so we got to stay at this beautiful resort, which was very convenient, because the dive centre is located right on the resort premises. The Dive & Stay package can only be paid with by cash, but all our expenses after that were covered by our credit card.... More

My husband, my mother, his mother and I spent 6 nights here after a 7 day safari. It was perfect. We stayed in one of the Shamba suites which was just amazing. It was one of the coolest rooms I've ever stayed in. The bed was big and comfortable. There is no light in the shower so be aware when... More
