We got a three bedroom room for $100usd. Accommodation was alright, room was a bit musty and hot. It had an AC but it didn't work. Fan was sufficient. Not a bad place for a quick night. Far enough away from the full moon party to not be disturbed and close enough drop in and enjoy. Main problem was they...

We stayed in this beautiful hotel at the first week of August, as a lot of other hotels were very expensive we were luck to get this one for the price we did. It is central of Kendwa beach, the access of all tourist attractions. Room was nice, spacious and clean. Breakfast was extensive, healthy and of full seasonal fruits,...

I have been to Zanzibar 3 times for a longer period, and this place is by far the worst place I have ever stayed! When we arrived there was nobody in the reception, and we had to go around the hotel, down to the beach and find some guy in the restaurant, who showed us to the room. We were...

Reviewed 18 May 2014

Despite reviews, this place is definitely one to avoid. For what it is, it's overpriced and not safe at all. Security is also laughable. A lot of my friends things were stolen and the staff were beyond useless. There is no hospitality and definitely nothing worth staying here for. Of all the places in zanzibar, avoid at all costs.

This is a small place, run by locals. It has a fantastic location, being right on a very quiet part of the beach (not sure what would happen when the huge Italian resort next door is open). We went in low season so the place was pretty quiet, just how we like it. If you want a lot more action,...

A group of 6 of us travelled to Zanzibar last week to find that the hotel we had booked (Kendwa Rocks!) only had room for 5 of us, so we had a look around the rest of Kendwa beach to see if anywhere had any rooms. Mocco Beach Villas was the only place with a room for 3 left, so...

We'd booked this accommodation in advance, and had paid a 50% deposit for a 5 night stay over New Year. The email communication wasn't great whilst making the booking, and it took some time before we received confirmation that our money had been received. The photos on the website only show the front few rooms. The place has been extended...
