We spent 5 nights at Kiwengwa beach resort and really have nothing bad to say. The room was perfect with a beautiful ocean view and a jacuzzi on the porch. Rooms were cleaned daily and sprayed for insects. The weather was amazing the first 3 days and cloudy the others but it didn't spoil the view. Would 100% recommend staying...
