Pakachi Beach Hotel
Ranked #5 of 36 Jambiani B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Jambiani is a very peaceful place & not busy when we were here. We had a fab 2 story hut right on the beach providing us with uninterrupted views of the fab Indian ocean. The design of the huts are perfect with a lovely breeze to keep you comfortable.
Food was lovely, ate here most days, we tried a few other local resorts too. This is a small hotel which makes it all the more intimate.
Would definitely recommend this place if you just want to chill out, read go for a snorkel & walk along the beach :) Perfect place to chill after being on safari

Room Tip: Definitely go for a 2 story hut on the beach, plenty of room & sleeping up stairs with that view...

we had a wonderful stay at pakachi beach resort. The bungalows are direct on the sand, nearby a nice beach. The owner jürgen and salomon did everything to make our stay unforgettable.
The hotel has a restaurant with sometime fresh fish, when you request.

Room Tip: there are rooms direct front of the sea, the others in the wonderful garden. Some family room, but a...

my husband and I stayed there for 3 days and we loved it!. It is not a pretentious hotel. Excellent food (Try their king fish crusted with coconut!). Staff is very helpful and always ready to assist. Rooms are clean and perhaps a bit outdated however for us were perfect as we spent 80% of our time outside.

Room Tip: Ours was in front of the beach/sea and we loved it.

It's a very good value for your money hotel.
The people are very friendly and helpfull.
Nice breakfast even if you leave very early in the morning they will offer you breakfast.
Don't expect a 4star hotel for that price. But the rooms are clean and fine (especially the ones near the beach are lovely). Just the bathrooms need a bit of refurbushing (salt has corroded the taps).
The surrounding is really nice and very relaxing.

This wonderful place offers excellent value for money. The staff offers great hospitality. Good food and drinks are available at any time of the day. Even when you have to check out very early the chef prepares a complete breakfast. We will come back here for sure!
We couldn't find any reason to complain.

This hotel is simple. When we arrived, our credit card for the booking had a problem, so we where not in the room we expected (we booked a 2 storeys banda). Our first room was really unconfortable (small and with a lot of ants), the second was better, and for the third night, we were in the bandas (which was not completely clean...). The bandas are nice, in front of the ocean, with a little balcony, airy, quite noisy with the ocean near but we were so tired that we realy slept well. The bathroom is elementary and showers don't have a big water flow. The beach is not the best of zanzibar but very quiet (less touristic than in the north of the island and than in paje also). The personnal is very nice and welcoming. The manager, a german, is listening. The restaurant is nice and not expensive.

We recommend to rent a car to visit all the island, it's interesting, more confortable and quicker than dala dala... If you are not afraid of driving in Africa...

Located on the tidal beach front. Staff nice enough. Pillows covered in mildew and mould. I GUESS it was otherwise clean and despite booking the two storey room it was very airless in January. The manager DID go and buy us some fans when we asked - but one of the fans did not work. The shower never worked. We had a rat visit us on the second night and for our third night we could not get out of there quickly enough and paid an extra $150 and checked into the very nice Spice Hotel (including dinner for the three of us) next door. Pakachi is a step up from backpacking but not worth the $96 we paid per night. (Our taxi driver kept insisting 'Coral' just up the road is better and cheaper.) Pakachi had a kind of unloved feel, but as another reviewer said it is fine if you just want to lay on the beach and read a book. Had a nice massage there.

When you store food in an open banda it happens sometimes that animals are attracted by this and visiting you. So don´t store food there. The showerhead was blocked with calcium. 10 minutes after you told us that the shower has few water the showerhead was changed. Next time inform us soon and not when you check out.
