My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights the 3rd week of June, (so review is well overdue!), after being on safari in Selous. It took about 1hr 40mins by car to reach the Lazy Lagoon from Dar Es Salaam airport and the last leg is by small boat, (you'll need to remove ur shoes!) but it was well worth the journey. This is simply a magical place, so peaceful & relaxing, we were so chilled, every meal was superb, breakfast, lunch & dinner, I second the previous reviewer's comment about the breakfast cinnamon rolls, absolutely delicious! Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts, Dave & Karen, who were excellent, in fact the whole entire staff were great, very friendly and welcoming. We took a half day tour to Bagamoyo which was very interesting, I would recommend this if you do get a little tired of 'island paradise' or just want to experiance a different side to Tanzania. The only 'beware' I would add is to be careful on some of the rocks around the island, we were warned more than once but rather foolishly, my husband still managed to cut the heel of his foot TWICE after going exploring in flip flops!
We thoroughly enjoyed our walks up the beach twice a day, you can walk for miles, and see the most amazing star fish, and we were almost always accompanied by Mino the resident hound!
He 'adopted' us during our stay, and we loved having him hanging around, he would come and sit outside the banda waiting for us to wake up every morning.
I can honestly say I have never felt so relaxed doing nothing, just total tranquility. Well done to Dave & Karen & team for creating what is The Lazy Lagoon and many thks for our enjoyable stay,
