"My husband and I visited this resort in March 2013. We stayed in one of the sea view suites with plunge pool. It was a very large room with an equally large toilet and shower area. Two large ceiling fans were there to cool us off, but it was often not enough for the hot and humid nights. We enjoy..."ed the infinity pool overlooking the beach which was always quiet and private. The food offerings were very good and the staff friendly. They were very attentive to any dietary needs or restrictions we may have had. Internet access was sporadic due to thunderstorms in the area. We did not enjoy having two cats roam the dining room during meals. It was only once we commented in writing about this that management took care of it. The new management team was very effective and hospitable. The driver of the shuttle service to the airport was very knowledgeable about Zanzibar which made for an enjoyable ride.

"My partner and I spent three nights at Pongwe after a hectic week on safari. It was just what we were after. Complete relaxation, the most stunning setting and the best service of our whole trip. I have nothing bad to say. We would highly recommend staying here for the perfect end to any trip."
"The hotel gives you easy access to one of the very best beaches in the world, and this is probably the greatest asset of this place. The staff are overall very good and very attentive to special needs. Travelling with toddlers, we did have special needs, and felt very well looked after.
The rooms..." are spacious, but too basic considering the price of the accommodation. The restaurant is okay, not great. The hotel is quite isolated from the real world, which is part of its charm.
I can recommend Pongwe Beach Hotel if you're looking for a quiet tucked away place and scenic beauty is your priority. If you want a cultural experience along with beach life you would want to look elsewhere.
