We stayed for 3 nights in July after one of us doing a safari and the other climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, for a bit of R&R. It was just perfect for this. Simona and Paolo made us feel very welcome and were great hosts. Having only 6 rooms, it is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Our room was a good size, tidy and clean. We had taken the dinner, bed, breakfast option which worked out fantastic and while we went out one night with friends from another resort, our evening meal was transferred over to a lunch time which we really appreciated. The food was lovely and we enjoyed the open air restaurant and meeting the chef who came out several times for a chat. Enjoyed the afternoon tea served daily. A great location re beach wise and we appreciated Simona organising a snorkelling trip for us. We travelled onto Stone Town for 3 days afterwards, and commented several times that we wished we had spent more time at the Mvuvi than in Stone Town.
