"Excellent hotel but bad location"
The hotel was great everything about it was great - the room, and hotel staff was great; pleasant. but the location is not so great... and their menu is a bit pricey for my taste.

"Great historic hotel near beach and Stone Town"
I really enjoyed my stay at the Dhow Palace hotel. It's built around a courtyard and pool and had lots of interesting bits of history displayed, so was a very attractive place. It was nice to go for a swim in the lovely outdoor pool. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were fantastic with choices of eggs and the basic breakfast foods and other interesting local dishes rotated through daily. The service at breakfast, the maid service and the front desk was great. We were having a problem with using a local phone network and the desk clerk went out of his way to help us.even loaning us his SIM card. Although we ate out in the evenings, there is a nice rooftop restaurant in the hotel. Overall I highly recommend this hotel

"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.

"Incredible lodge in an idyllic setting!"
My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights after a long safari in mainland Tanzania and 7 nights in the quiet, restful Michamvi. We wanted to stay close to Stone Town, but not in the center as we wanted to relax before the long flight home. Hakuna Matata did not disappoint - it was a beautifully kept lodge, respectful to the natural environment and showcasing the ancient ruins. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the bungalow we stayed in was stunning with a view over the private cove. One of our best nights in Tanzania was having a cocktail on the terrace overlooking the sea, watching thousands of bats fly overhead from Prison Island to Stone Town - a real spectacle! Can't recommend highly enough for a peaceful, luxury break just outside Stone Town.

"Wonderful stay at a relaxing and comfortable lodge"
The Sunshine Marine Lodge is a great relaxation escape! The grounds and setting are beautiful and all the rooms enjoy great views. The restaurant is reasonably priced with attentive, polite staff and good food at all times of the day. We sampled a wide range of drinks from the bar which were great. There are plenty of places to relax like hammocks and loungers round the pool. Room furnishings are very comfortable compared to other places we stayed in Tanzania (although this was a higher price range than those others). The snorkelling trip to Mnemba atoll was well worth it even in the rougher weather and we swum with dolphins! We did walk to the beach at low tide and explored the rock pools but spent most of our time chilling out. Allow 3 nights or more as it is a reasonable trip from Stone Town. I recommend that most of your Zanzibar excursions are done from a Stone Town base and then you should come here mainly to relax.

"Lovely retreat on the beach"
The owner & staff made us feel very welcome. Our cottage was simple but comfortable & had all we needed. The setting was perfect, right on the beach. The pool was lovely - clean & a good size. Breakfast was lovely and generous- fresh fruit, mango juice, homemade bread, pancakes and eggs anyway. We had one perfect evening eating in the hotel. The restaurant was buzzy, the chef cooked an excellent Indian buffet - his forte. As I'm a veggie he made generous portions of perfect saag, vegetable curry, aromatic cabbage, coconut sauce, basmati rice &'chapatis for me. Everyone else was very happy with the meat & fish options. The other time we ate in the hotel we had pizza & this was an unfair test. There simply aren't the ingredients for european food. Similarly we had bruschetta & pasta twice at the restaurant next door. Both times edible but rather bland & the choice of vegetables very limited as its seasonal. I would definitely recommend the sea view but eat the local menu don't bother with european.
