Mohamend's is an incredible place. It has everything you need! the bungalows are big and clean, after a day of diving or snorkeling a hot shower and a hamaca is what you need and mohamed's give you those. internet is fast and the food is just out of this reality! Mohamed and his family are the nicest people. His children...

We found the food at Mohammed's to be the best in the Matemwe Beach area. We stayed at a resort a little way down the beach for most of our stay, but I stayed at Mohammed's for two nights before my fiance arrived. Mohammed's restaurant is really delicious - curries with fish and prawns with nice spicy sauces and rice...

Staff is very friendly and the location is nice and quiet. Not too touristic and the food is delicious. Would definitely recommend it to you. You can do some snorkeling with dolphins if you're lucky or do fishing trips. Stayed here for 3 days too lay back and relax. Beautiful place

If you want to support one of the few, if not only, locally owned place in Matemwe, stay here. After days of spending lots of money of Norwegian/Italian/Swedish/British-owned fancy resorts, for swimming pools and TVs I never used, coming here was a relief. Though this place is no thrills, its clean, has hot water, free wifi and a nice restaurant...

We spent 5 days and 5 nights in this hotel. Mohammed and his family were so nice with us. The accomodation is good, with hot water and electricity in each bungalow. There is is free Wifi.

After a week on safari we searched for a beachfront location away from the masses. Mohammed's bungalows sounded perfect. Isolated on the NE coast of Zanzibar in a fishing village seemed idyllic. We got there by Daldala (1hr from Stonetown) and immediately liked what we found. 5 bungalows, a beach bar/restaurant and miles of white sand. Facilities were posh back...

Let me start by saying that Matemwe Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I've been to, on any continent. Perfect colours both in the sea and the sky with local fishing boats making up the perfect postcard. Now, if you plan to see Zanzibar on a 200 usd/week budget, then this place is for you. It's right on...

“There are only four bungalows are situated in the garden at Mohammeds and facing towards the restaurant. Beach is only a 1 minute walk from any of the rooms!”

“There is no swimming pool, but then again, the Indian Ocean is about 50 steps from your bungalow. There is also not a fitness center, but a jog on the beach in the early morning allows you to watch the local women harvesting seaweed in their bui-buis. Local kids play on the beach here, and will often invite you to join them in a game of soccer, but there are no beach boys/aggressive vendors selling things on this part of the beach. It's also quite safe...I was traveling alone and walked up and down the beach many times with no hassles, just friendly locals welcoming me.”
