myself and my boyfriend arrived on sunday the 13th of july, the minute we stepped off the little plane and landed on the airstrip in mashado we were greeted by a very happy and jolly deeanne( manager ) who drove us to the tides lodge, where we were then greeted by steve who was just as jolly, which was so nice after a long haul flight, the two of them were so welcoming and friendly which really made you feel so at ease and happy.
we enjoyed 10 lovely days at the tides, the first night we experienced our first ever full moon which was a spectacular sight, and each night of the week we enjoyed a lovely dinner, the seafood is amazing so fresh and tasty, and if you order anything off the speciality menu make sure you try the chateau briand which is out of this world, the steaks were so tender and juicy.
we also took a snorkelling trip to maizwe island,deanne was so helpfull and stopped at nothing, which was so nice of her, she had organised drinks and a lunch which was served under a shelter set up on the island by the skipper and ali the snorkelling instructor. we thoroughly enjoyed our snorkelling, highly recommend going.
if you are looking for a place that is relaxing with spectacular scenery and i would highly recommend the tides, steve and dee and all the staff really do make a special extra effort and go out of thier way to accomodate you and cater to you, it was by far the best 10 days we had in tanzania and would return in the morning.
