Cozy rooms, big beds, really cheap, good security. They have good food, beautiful view of the beach. The most important part was the friendly staff, they had good service. They helped us with a bonfire, and fixed problems fast!

The price is really cheap so for the price, the room and bathroom is good. They have really good lunches and dinners! The hotel is near the beach and it is a really beautiful beach. The service is fantastic, we could control the music, we had a bonfire etc.

Basic accommodation two minutes from the beach: you get your own bungalow and bathroom, double bed and veranda with sort of beach view. Shower stream is barely coming out, Mosquito nets with holes, generally clean and taken care of. The staff is nice and friendly, the meals well-prepared and basic breakfast is included. They organise for you transfers to Nungwi...

If you have never enjoyed a beach all to yourself, go to Mabwe Roots. Being slightly out of the Nungwi tourist section but still with incredible beach line, Mabwe Roots is just ideal.. The food is wicked. Super tasty with fresh fish, cooked to order! The staff are super relaxed, very friendly and give a real family like vibe to...
