Kilima Kidogo Guest House

Jambiani Road, Paje - Map
"Beautiful facilities, great food, awesome owner"
Across-the-board-5s aren't something I give out easily, but for this wonderful Zanzibar spot, it's a no-brainer. The hotel is beautifully designed, the main foyer opens up to a nice pool. In Paje, the tides recede a long ways, so the pool is a great option for when the water's out too far to swim. The place is perfect for a relaxing beach vacation. The owner, Dina, makes the hotel a cut above. Like host at a classic & classy establishment, she takes true care in her facilities and her guests' experience. She engaged with every patron I saw, and took time to help with any travel, food or accommodation questions people had. This level of hospitality is rare and special. The food and drinks are excellent. The host's special (coconut-crusted fish) was one of the best meals I had during 5 weeks in Africa. The rooms are clean, with big beautiful beds and nice bathrooms. Good hot water. Prices were reasonable for nice facilities. The location in Paje is relatively good, a little South of town, but a nice beach walk or quick cab ride to other hotels or bars. Paje itself is a bit isolated, and there's not much to do. Kite surfing seemed popular, but nobody looked to be enjoying themselves, very serious faces. I preferred relaxing on the beach, swimming, and eating seafood for a couple of days, which this spot is perfect for. If you want to go to Paje and experience Zanzibari relaxation, Kilima Kidogo is an ideal hotel.

"Lovely Unguja"
A little piece of paradise - enormous, comfortable villas with amazing views across the ocean and the added excitement of extremely cheeky monkeys swinging through your room in the morning and trying to nick your sunglasses! Great food and lovely staff - thank you for a super stay.

"Quaint. Quiet, close to beach"
I had a nice quiet relaxing time. I did not participate in the outside adventures that were offered so I can't comment on the value or experience but the food and service was acceptable and if you are looking to relax for good value it is a good choice

Warm welcome, with no problem getting into our room early. Staff were very apologetic that the top floor restaurant was closed that evening for a private function, but we were able to get up there for a coffee to admire the great view over the Stone Town rooftops.

Waikiki Zanzibar Resort

Pwani Mchangani, Pwani Mchangani 2210 - Map
"Lovely hotel but not on a Friday night!"
The Waikiki was a lovely hotel to stay at. We had a room right on the beach and there was plenty to do there or you could just lie around and do nothing if you wanted to. Our last night there was a Friday night when they host a party from 10.30pm until 3am and we subsequently got very little sleep that night. Any other night of the week is very quiet and relaxing!

"A slice of Paradise "
We have just enjoyed a wonderful break in Zanzibar staying at the Ndame Beach Lodge on Paje Beach. The accommodation was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. There was everything on site to make us feel very relaxed - a comfy beach bar and a restaurant that served pleasant food. The beaches were exquisite and although we stayed during peak season there never seemed to be too many people around. Further along the beach there are wind surfing schools which provided plenty to watch but did not encroach on the beauty of the view. I would highly recommend a holiday at the Ndame Beach Lodge for rest and relaxation and to enjoy a little piece of paradise.

Sazani Beach Lodge

Nungwi, Nungwi 0000 - Map
"Good stay could have been better"
The best part about the hotel which makes you overlook many other flaws is the location.the hotel is bang on the sea and a not so crowded beach. its good for someone who would spend more time relaxing by the sea. the food is just ok.the beer is overpriced compared to the normal rates(almost double).There are many good restaurants along the beach where one can explore.
