The setting of the Mkonge is beautiful. However from the moment of arrival the service was unfriendly (apart from the room maid who was most friendly and accommodating). The rooms are adequate but the bathrooms dated.

The location is lovely and so is the view over Tanga bay. However, that’s where the good news stops. Other than the lady who cleaned our room the staff were very unfriendly, particularly the two ladies at reception were downright rude. The rooms are outdated and the bathrooms are in dire need to renovation. The fruit at breakfast was very...

We spent few relaxing nights at Mkonge hotel before Christmas and we really enjoyed our stay. Kids loved the swimming pool and the gardens, they enjoyed the space to run around. Breakfast was not he greatest, but sufficient, none of us walked away hungry. Strangely we only had one meal at the hotel, but it was a nice one, fish...

Three nights were spent at this hotel during a business visit. The hotel is set in pleasant grounds with sea views and outside dining facilities. The staff are very pleasant and welcoming. The rooms are however very dated and the bathrooms in need of complete refurbishment. On the plus side, the bed was comfortable and a fridge was provided. Hot...

I paid to use the WiFi in my room but couldn't get any connection. Eventually discovered that you can get free internet in the main part of the...

Rooms need lot of renovation, good part is that Indian food available. Right next to river front. Live music in the evening. Poor net connectivity. Poor breakfast availability. Needs to be more cleaner.

This could be such a wonderful hotel, but it is evident that the proprietor does not really care about his guests. Rooms are shoddy but at least clean. The breakfast is a disappointment and the shower water was cold Great Potential but badly managed. The only highlight was the beautiful garden overlooking the bay.

My husband, who was leaving for some work, went to get something from our room after breakfast . He saw a dodgy looking house keeping guy, standing near our room. My husband clearly instructed him NOT to enter our room. After a while, my two kids and I decided to return to the ROOM. We got in and I went...

Reviewed 23 January 2016

The hotel's location is fantastic with breath taking views and the cool sea breeze, The rooms and specially the bathrooms are in pathetic condition with water unable to clear the bath tray and form a dirty pool. The buffet breakfast was very poor, with nothing special to take note of. All in all very POOR VALUE FOR MONEY.
