“Where the time stands still”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Slow motion restaurant.

Staff is cool and nice.

Food is very much average but it's ok.
Nice sea view. Dhow and fishermen passing by.

Nothing to complain about for nothing to compare in this area.

Some dynamite fishing you can hear from the terrace.

Stayed June 2014, travelled on business

Reviewed 19 February 2014

We made booking in advance. We were met by a apparently very tired receptionist, who seemed surprised that she worked in a hotel. However, we were sort of welcomed and shown to our room. Yes, the room was big, but that was about it. Bathroom was a toilet and a shower (with hotwater, thank god), but it was not very nice and just not clean enough.
They served a normal breakfast with eggs and fruit. They also served fries,beans,potatoes and sossages, but these were cold and did not taste good.
Service in the restaurant was very slow and poor. We had to ask for the menu or pick it up our self, we had to wave for the waiter to come and take order, and they did not come to clean up the table when we were done eating before loooong after we were done. It also took forever to get the check, we had to ask for that as well.
We had the "bungalows" with ocean wiev for 100 USD pr night, which I think is overpriced when the hotel and service is poor.

So, if you go to Mtwara region, I would much rather stay at the Old Boma in Mikindani. Price is a bit higher, but absolutely worth it.
