Lots of space

Posted Dec 25, 2017
A bit stuck in the middle - not posh nor cheap and cheerful. Irratic services eg electricity outages are common, restaurant very hit and miss. Overall a decent, mid range property with lots of space right on the beach, but certainly not worth the $145 rate.

Nice hotel, would recommend

Posted Nov 22, 2017
Pros: The location and views.
Cons: shower pressure could be more
Location: Restaurants, shops, easy to go on excursions as always being sold.
Came to the hotel for a quick stay and was a good place to stay. Nice location, close to all the local restaurants and right on the beach. If you looking for somewhere to stay which is good value for money smiles ticks the boxes.

A nice stay

Posted Nov 2, 2017 on Hotels
The location is amazing even if the best part of Nungwi Beach extends towards the west, but is easily accessible with a walk on the beach itself. Many restaurants are in a close reach and all offer a nice service and good food. Only black spot of the area are the "beach boys" who try to sell any kind of trips and possibilities, some of them are really annoying and invasive and a few are even dishonest. Because of this it's sometimes difficult to have a relaxing and peaceful walk on the beach unless you get escorted by the Masai who are proud to protect you from these people and guarantee a kind of safety on the beaches. The rooms of the hotel are really nice, comfortable and clean and the whole personnel is really smiling and welcoming. Breakfast is average, could be easily improved, with a wider choice of continental breakfast or the possibility to have a espresso coffee. As a general overview though Smiles Beach Hotel is a facility that I would suggest to anyone.

Good

Cons: not the best shore but a few minutes walking distance to better ones. Breakfast was not fresh. Pros: Very nice view. Nice pool. Really close to the beach. They spray mosquito repelent and closing the nets in the rooms every night.

No value for money

Posted May 12, 2017 on Hotels
No value for money for this hotel. Although we special request for a double bed room we got twins bed room and the second night we were prepared to sleep on one of those only. No alcohol service in the restaurant and poor breakfast. Good location and willing to service personnel. Poor internet speed.

More affordable option at Zanzibar

Posted Feb 6, 2017
Great hotel with some nice comforts but more affordable in a very expensive stretch on Nungwi beach. The hotel staff are very helpful and attentive to your needs.
