pleasant stay”
Very nice hotel! With private parking, swimming pools. Suggest breakfast buffet and dinner menu for the HB stay. Room was clean, everyday towel changing. Mini bar is free of charge (but non replenish). Beach is nice even at the low tide. Surround area is very poor village, but is not the hotel problem is all about Zanzibar. Could be great if hotel suggest some activities.

Fantastic holiday in relaxing setting”
Our kids loved the breakfast buffet and long menu of smothies, milkshakes and fresh juices. We all really appreciated the calm spaces for sitting in the shade and reading (no loud thumping pop music) as well as the pingpong, pool table and volley ball areas. The rooms are nice and big and the beach and sea are even more beautiful than in the pictures! Easy to stay at Dhow Inn every day but worth making the trip to Stone Town.

Incredibly relaxing and pleasant stay”
The rooms faced a nice but warm pool. No beachview from the hotel but the sea was only a short walk away. No TV in rooms but the beach was excellent and worth going to at different times of day as the tide came in and out. It was at the edge of Paje's shore so it was fortunately out of the way from the kitesurfers. During full tide, most of the beach is colonised by kitsurfers making the sea dangerous and unswimmable so stick to Dhow Inn's beach area for leisurely fun. The beach is walkable during low tide and you can see seaweed harvesters but be careful of sea urchins. The dinner was only okay -salmon tataki was good though!- but the beach was apparently dangerous at night so it was fine. The staff were kind and the local children were friendly and desired snacks. Beware of touts. A nice grocery shop was within walking distance. We were stung by jellyfish but nothing serious and the staff were very helpful. Very pleasant stay!

Such a beautiful, cozy hotel. Completly relaxing, low key and beautiful. ”
For a every traveller, who prefers a boutique hotel rather than a big resort, this is the place to go. We travelled off Season, Thus the hotel was not superbusy, neither was the Beach. Hotel is off far away from the tourism, Thus there were not a lot of people trying to sell you something on the fantastic Beach. Ali, the guy in charge of the private Beach area, made our everyday life at the Beach easier, with looking after our bags, while we took a swim or went for a walk or he served us drinks. We talked often to him and had good conversations. Remaining staff was also very funny and service minded ( maybe a bit relaxed and slow ? :-) ) Food is a set dinner every evening, which was surprisingly good, but unfortunately is a repeat every week - thus not so nice if you stay for more than one week - but still not a reason not to choose this beautiful place. :

Nice hotel by the beautiful Paje beach”
Location, surrounding, room
Lovely stay during christmas and new year at Dhow Inn. Helpful and sweet staff and nice and clean rooms with a big bed. Only a minute walk to the beach and great beach bar jambo bar. The restaurant wasn't a good experience for us, we went for dinner only once, I did not get any food at all and when we told them they still did not bring me any. Not very alert in the dining staff. So my bf had to eat alone. Also overpriced and not the best standard comparing to other restaurants. Though had great food experience at Ocean, Jambo bar, The Rock, Paje by Night and Bausinga etc. Good value for the money and we had a great time at the hotel.

restaurant staff, cleanliness, food
We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff at the restaurant were amazing! The room was a decent size but was very clean & well kept. The food was pretty good - although the breakfast was pretty average. The hotel is not directly on the beach but very close. There are a few restaurants close by. If you order a taxi from the hotel then please keep in mind the hotel will charge you their own rates - which are ridiculously high for short distances. Make sure tell them you do not want a hotel taxi.

Nice, however a few issue”
rooms, cleaness, staff
Staff was actually very nice and the room was newly refurbished. The hotel is also 2 min from the sea which is ok. The negative point for me: they advertise wifi and wifi in the room and it actually doesnt work at all. The hotel doesnt have ATM machine which is a problem when the closest one is at 45 min drive. The worse for me was the quality of the food. I ordered a fish and was very disappointed with the quality served.. I strongly advice against it

goed onderhouden en rustig hotel”
hedendaags design, goed onderhouden, vriendelijk personeel
- aangenaam rustig verblijf tijdens laag seizoen,fris en en hedendaags design indien je niet het typische koloniale zoekt; zeer net en goed onderhouden zowel wat betreft de kamers als de tuin en zwembad; voldoende handdoeken zowel voor het strand als op de kamer; - je voelde je veilig in het hotel; - iedereen probeert het je zo aangenaam mogelijk te maken, de chef van het restaurant en de manager inclus; - alles werkte zoals het moet met uitzondering van het internet (!): dit was absoluut ondermaats en zou niet mogen bij een hotel van deze prijsklasse (het zou een tijdelijk probleem betreffen cfr de receptie) - de transfer van en naar de luchthaven was extra te betalen terwijl vele hotels in de buurt deze aan hun klanten terecht aanbieden.
