I was on my way from Dar es Salaam to Mozambique and decided to stop by Mikindani (Mtwara) for a five-night rest. Totally worth it and could have stayed for longer if not for my schedule. The owner and manager is friendly and receptive, as well as the staff, all of whom will go the extra mile to arrange anything...

My family and I spent one night at Ten Degrees and we loved it. The room was small but comfortable and clean. The food, as always, was excellent. On the menu were prawns, chicken, fish, and beef. I'm convinced they serve the best food in Lindi/Mtwara.

I spend one night here on my way to catch the solar eclipse near Masasi. Lovely and nice rooms, I had a very good sleep. Staff was friendly and helpful and food very tasty. You must try the prawn sandwich with the special 10 degrees south chilly sauce. Amazing. Advised also to rent a kayak and explore the bay, stunning!...

We came to Ten Degrees for two nights and stayed for three, as we couldn't bear to leave! We stayed in one of the en suite rooms - traditional tanzanian decor, with added bonus of the fan INSIDE the mosquito net (it was a revelation), and a cute verandah where you can have your breakfast with a great view of...

Stopped for one night, they serve decent enough b/fast and had helpful staff. This place however has no air conditioning incase you can't do without one. The wall between the bedroom and the bathroom doesn't go all the way up and can be a little strange if you like some privacy in the bathroom when you share a room with...

Lovely little place - the rooms aren't anything exceptional but are spacious and simple with a good sized bathroom. Really what makes it is the bar/restaurant area with good food, good wifi and relaxed setting. Beautiful beach in front of the hotel to wake up to in the morning. Certainly stands out as a place to stay on the coast...

We stayed here in the guest house as a family (we have 2 boys aged 12 & 15) for 2 weeks whilst visiting a local church and the area. It was excellent for the price so we could have 3 rooms. The beds are really comfortable; the shared loo and showers quite basic - and cold water only. However as...

“All rooms are good, Room 4 in the ensuite row tends to be a bit noisier but still acceptable”

“Try avoid the last room (I think its room 4 or 5) just because its close to the water pump - but its not too noisy”

“The 'new rooms' have fans inside the mosquito nets over huge beds - keeps you cool as there's no aircon. Always wipe the top of the beer bottle before drinking!”
