"Hotel closed so offered Mizingani Seafront"
I received an email within a day of bookjng that the hotel was closed for renovation and offered a room at the Mizingani Seafront. After confirming via prompt email responses that the Mizingani was easy walking distance to everything in Stone Town I agreed to the switch. Staff were excellent. Super friendly, welcoming and efficient. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was comfy with a good mosquito net. Breakfast was just ok, bordering on disappointing. The hotel restaraunt was convenient but average. The seafront view was nice at night. I still would have prefered the Dhow for location, with much better proximity to restaraunts and shops.

"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.

"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.

"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.
