    We have nothing bad to say about the Pongwe Beach Hotel. The staff went above and beyond with everything, the suite’s with private pool was even better than the pictures showed. You get beyond what you pay for.

    We spent few days at this hotel during Christmas time which was the best choice we could have made. Pongwe Beach Hotel has very nice staff, absolutely amazing food, perfect location. Very clean and beautiful beach. You can feel you are the only guest at the hotel despite full capacity. We reserved accommodation with private pool which was also the best choice. Fully recommend this hotel!

    Stayed for 5 days and was spoilt from the first till the last minute by the beauty, the relaxed atmosphere, and the staff at this fantastic place. Lovely food on top, all was perfect. My husbond and I can highly recommand this place and we hope to come back one day again.

    The word “paradise” is so frequently used it sometimes loses its meaning but there honestly is no other word that is more apt when describing Pongwe Beach Hotel and the stunning white soft sand and clean torquoise water that is Pongwe Beach. Hardly surprising Pongwe Beach is regarded as the best beach in Zanzibar. The hotel itself feels luxurious in an understated sort of way, whilst the service was always top notch and served with smile and warm humour. I have to to thank the chef too for what had been consistently imaginative meals, full of flavour and presented with such panache.

    I cannot thank the staff enough at Pongwe Beach Hotel for what was a truly memorable holiday experience.

    I can’t say anything just this is a paradise! Pure white sand, turquoise water, sun and cool weather, perfect beach, friendly staff, amazing foods….. Etc…. We spent the new year’s party with the guests and the staff and was an unforgatteble experience in my life.

    The perfect beach resort for those looking for a quiet, tranquil experience. My wife and I were on our honeymoon and after a tough Kili trek, we needed somewhere to recharge and put our feet up. Pongwe Beach Hotel was exactly what we wanted and they met every expectation we had. The staff is unbelievably friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a room with a private plunge pool, and it was was large, clean and just perfect for us. The food was some of the best we had in Africa. We only did the bed and breakfast, which meant we were paying separately for lunch and dinner, but the menu had many options (even for my veggie wife) and the changing nightly dinner specials were consistently good. The chef was very accommodating to ensure you had a meal you would enjoy. The best feature of this hotel is the beach. Perfect white sand, with surprisingly hot, turquoise ocean. If you are unfamiliar with Zanzibar, Pongwe is on the east coast, and while seaweed is common in many beaches in Zanzibar, it was quite minimal at Pongwe (they would do a quick rake each morning). This hotel was also the ONLY hotel in the Pongwe area that has a beach all the time. The neighboring hotels had rocks, and thus did not have a beach at high tide.The one minor issue we had, which was more on us than the hotel, was sleep quality. It is very hot in Zanizibar, and the rooms only have ceiling fans. The disclaimer here, though, is that we are Canadian and not at all used to this kind of heat, but just know if you like it cold to sleep, you might find it difficult.Overall, this is exactly the honeymoon experience we wanted. With only about 20 rooms, there are very few guests even when full, and this results in a very quiet, peaceful beach experience. If you’re looking for somewhere lively (such as nightly entertainment), I recommend you look elsewhere in Zanzibar.
