    A great little place with only 7 bungalows tucked away in the Marine National Park. Great place to stay if you want to go diving! The lunch packs from this place are probably the best ones I ever had, and it's a lot of food....More

    I recommend this before or after a trip to the smaller Chole Mjini. Italian inspired food, a wonderful pool, poolside spa treatments, and lovely little bungalows make this all a special place. They can also arrange tours, snorkelling and the Kitu Kiblu whale shark excursions....More

    Hi, we travelled by a tiny plane, we were told their was a ferry but it was very slow and even the locals described it as unsafe, it's not unusual for a ferry to sink so I'd go by plane if you can!

    Hello, would anyone be able to confirm if Pole Pole have WiFi, it says on their site there is WiFi but I have read a review that states no WiFi is available, I'm only concerned due to a work commitment that has fallen on the dates we are at Pole Pole, thank you
