We fell in love with this place as soon as we entered. It is home from home. A bungalow on the beach, a short leg stretch to a table or sunbed and a little further a spectacular beach to walk on. Chantal and Marco are lovely laid back Italian folk, nothing is too much trouble to sort. I loved how...

This small set of bungalows is run by a nice Italian family (Chantal and Marco) with their child and four dogs. Each faces the beach, and is tidy and efficient. The positives: See the sunrise from your bed. Swim, snooze in the sun, read, nap, eat, nap, repeat. We were done after 3 days. Very nice guests, we made dinner...

In my opinion the best food in Kiwenga beach, the catch of the day is always a must and the seafood sides are amazing. Good quality-price balance. The staff is really nice and friendly and the dogs are lovely and quiet. You can order the food and wait for it laying in a hamaca or swimming. We didn´t stay in...

We didn't stay here, just ate here twice. The food is ok, but we had to wait such a long time. 90 minutes for a simple order of three identical burgers. And we were sharing the restaurant with....nobody else, so I guess the kitchen wasn't that busy. Until the owner sat down with some friends much later and got food...

I was with friends and we were really happy about our choice. You can relax and the place looks one of the most beatiful of the area. If you want night life , it is close to other bigger resort. We ate fish here and it was good, average price with the neighbourhood. Suggested

well... the place could be nice: the bungalows are very nice, clean, spacious and nicely decorated the beach is nice but... the ocean is very close to the bungalows (especially to the triple ones), the waves make a terrible noise that is annoying at night and prevent you from sleeping, the place is located quite far from the center of...

We spent 5 nights at Simba beach Hotel in February 2014. Stuff is very friendly. Rooms were nice and clean, seaview! The part of the beach is really nice. Long beach and super clear water. Perfect place to relax in the sun and take a bath in the sea. The hotel organizes snorkel trips as well. A snorkel trip to...

We stayed here for four nights after two exhausting weeks on Mainland Tanzania. I can't recommend this place high enough. A huge, lonely beach, finest sand, nice water and clean and spacious rooms are good reasons to stay here. The food and the drinks are a bit pricy and the location is slightly remote, but it all is being offset...
