We stayed at Mbuyuni for 2 nights at the end of October and personally it was a bit of disappointment. I honestly believe that the people running this place are trying, probably trying very hard to make this place nice, but... It is situated about half way between Paje and Jambiani Village in a quiet secluded location. The bungalow we...

We enjoyed a family stay here in early September, 2012 and loved it. The rooms were clean and appealing, the food was great, nice salt-water pool, gorgeous sunrises and the staff was friendly and eager to help. We rented bicycles for a trip in to Jambiani and that was and adventure in itself. We enjoyed playing in the surf but...

This is a long overdue review, as we spent several days there back in October 2011... We really loved this place and would definitely recommend it to others. We ended up staying there having seen some of the other establishments in the area. From what we saw, Mbuyuni seemed to offer the best value for money so we went for...

We stayed here for four nights. This place is about half way between Paje and Jambiani beaches which makes it an ideal budget option if you enjoy long strolls along the beach as the white sand and turquoise sea are much more impressive once you get to these locations. The rooms are basic but cleaned everyday if you hand the...
