The hotel was really nice! There's a pool that's kept really clean, the restaurant is good, and the staff is helpful and friendly. The beach is close by and everything is accessible! The staff is great too. I got sick during the trip and the owners and staff helped call the doctor and eventually a cab to get me to...

I had a great experience at the Demani Lodge although I am not very comfortable with foam mattresses. I was a bit disappointed at the beginning because it´s a bit far from the beach but the place and the staff compensate it all. They have a nice barbecue party on Thursdays for 20$ excluding drinks. You can eat as much...

Stayed here a few nights with a friend in the 3 bed room. Lovely facilities, nice owner And they take credit card! Food and drinks were good, pool was great. A bit further down the beach- 20ish minute walk to the main area and also it directly on the beach- across the street. I would stay there again.

The big selling point is the pool. The food was good.. But the rooms were not great compared to similarly priced places from Stone Town to Kiwengwa. The mosquito nets are small, the beds are tiny with cheap foam matresses. Demani was the only place where I had to pay a deposit for a towel, and for keys.

Friendly staff, beautifully kept pool and chill area, reasonable prices. We got here for $30 from Stone Town. The pool was a welcome site after a hot day. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for an affordable, laidback anf friendly environment.
