The meals prepared were always fresh and filling. Various tastes came to life and every dish was enjoyable. From beef, chicken to octopus salad, all was fulfilling and delicious.

She brought us through the lovely resort and answered any questions we had. Right from the moment we both met Cecilia, we instantly felt comfortable around her. Our room was bigger and more... More

We stayed in Pongwe Beach Hotel and had meals there. Very dilicious food with decent price. I love the seafood beach dinner specially. Having dinner in a very romantic atmosphere made me feel so good. They offered us huge portion of seafood. We tried our best to finish but failed.^_^

Ate our meals here while staying at the hotel and weren't disappointed. Adequate variety, some fresh seafood and some western favorites. We enjoyed bfasts, lunches and dinners. Service was friendly and we enjoyed perching at the bar.

The other guests (there are only 20 cabins) were very nice and mostly European, but it was the staff we most engaged with, because they were incredible people. Every morning after I rose with the sun and went looking... More

You can go there to spend the day paying 25 USD deposit, which you actually consume in the bar&restaurant. The place is gorgeous! Nature is the finest in Zanzibar, wild and beautiful. The beach is the best sandy, clean and quiet... More
