Beautiful surroundings, very attentive staff, food was very varied and plentiful plus excellent quality. A lovely place to spend a very hot Sunday afternoon with glorious views of Lake Victoria and pleasant gardens.

We had two nights here and it was perfect for relaxing after doing a lot of travel. Located very close to the airport. Staff were so helpful and friendly. The only disappointing thing was the meals at the restaurant as the description in the menu didn't match our expectations, service was very slow and in one case the meals were...

From the moment you are picked up at the Mwanza Airport (for free) you know you will be staying at a quality hotel. As the other reviewers state, it sits on Lake Victoria and offers picturesque views but to me the view is the hotel and the grounds itself. Very nicely done with walkways over the intricate water garden and...

Excellent hotel, close to the Mwanza airport yet with superb views on the shores of Lake Victoria. Large well appointed rooms, extensive menu & good service. Only here overnight but hope to stay longer in the future.

Visited Mwanza on my holidays and although unfortunately I was not lucky enough to stay at the Malaika beach resort I was lucky enough to have dinner with my family. Great selection of food and every meal from different cuisines we ordered was fantastic. I felt compared to western restaurants it was very good value for money. If you went...

I stayed for a night whilst in transit up to one of the nearby mines. The staff were super friendly and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a curry for dinner which wasn't bad but the breakfast buffet was superb! The rooms were very spacious, comfortable and well appointed. I am going up to the Serengeti...

I've stayed here before and will certainly return. Our group had been travelling for a couple of weeks among remote rural areas right off the usual tourist routes and we use the Malaika Beach as a place to relax peacefully before the long flight back home.
