Friendly efficient & helpful staff, spotlessly Clean units and facilities. Tours well organized and personalized to suit us. Close proximity to the beach & relaxed atmosphere.
What a fantastic stay. We flew from Dubai for a long weekend. Transport has been organised very early in the morning for us. 1 hour drive. We took a nap on the "hanging" bed watching the sunrise over this beautiful paradisiac beach. Lovely Janisse organised a breakfast for us around 9m and an early check-in around 10am. We got lucky and they were very flexible. Mnana Bungalows are exactly what we expected. Very flexible, very private, good service and a perfect location. The food was delicious and served with a smile. Mohammed was the man to organised everything for us from snorkeling to taxis. Anna is the German owner. She has been discreet and helpful at all time. Our bungalow bed was decorated with flower petals and towels folded in the shape of swans at our arrival... Honeymoon style. The room was cleaned every morning and prepared for us every evening. We had diner and drinks delivered to us to the table outside our bungalow for a private and cosy evening. You never know when you need a grilled octopus or banana crepes... All our orders were added to our tab that we paid for at the end of our stay. Prices are reasonable. We all know that 5% credit card is applicable on the island. If you don't, then you have not made your homeworks and you can blame only yourself?! Bring some US$ or change at the airport (even at 5am) into Tanzanian Shillings. Both currency are accepted. ATM is available 10-15 min by taxi at the gas station in Paje. Your credit card will probably be charged too. A few dining options are also available on the beach. Pandu Ngozi was our favorite. Go early for the lobsters. More expensive options are also available but our favorite remain Mnana Bungalows and that place. Try the nightlife at Paje also on saturdays. We did not. We actually left early to visit Stone Town but we wished we stayed longer at Mnana Bungalows. Tips: bring US$, quick dry water shoes, snorkeling mask (if you are picky, all boats have some) and a smile.
Please tell us about the last call at the bar or kitchen closing when we are seated outside. It closes at 930-10PM.
Superb value for money. Basic facilities in a fantastic location. A variety of sun loungers & swings & hammocks are dotted around the property which makes it very conducive to lots of relaxing! The property is also located very close to the Rock & a selection of other bars & restaurants.
The only slight downside was the length of time you had to wait for food at night in the restaurant.
Very nice place. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was cleaned every day and fresh linens are provided every second say. There are plenty of spaces to relax, read, enjoy the weather or the delicious food. You must try the sea food platter they offer - amazing value for money! The food is in general very good compared to other places and the prices are also better. We loved hearing the sound of the ocean when falling asleep... Try the snorkeling if you have time - it’s around 30$ for two people. Beautiful people and beautiful places! If you want something quiet and away from the touristic buzz, this is the place.
Internet connection extremely poor. Communication regarding the reservation was very poor, slow and unreliable. The food is disappointing. They charge an exhorbitant 5% to pay by card (other places charge 2-3% in Zanzibar). Most of all, the owner of the place was extremely unpleasant and authoritarian in dealing with customers.
