    Perfect stay!

    We really enjoyed our stay at Mocco Beach Villa. Its location is perfect in idillic Kendwa Beach, rooms are basic but comfortable, food at the restaurant is very tasty. The cherry on the cake is its staff, so friendly and accommodating. Special mention to Said, asante sana rafiki! We highly recommend this property and will most definitely go back.

    This is a very pleasant little hotel. The rooms are nice, clean with strong AC (a must in the area). Comfy beds with a good mosquito net. They also have a fun monthly Friday beach bar! The staff are VERY friendly and helpful. In fact, I left something in my room and left the area. They contacted me and had it returned to a different party of the island. Excellent customer service!!!! They even let us check in early cause our rooms were ready.

    I'm being generous rating the hotel with 3 stars. The manager Shirleen was attentive and tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible. She is the main reason I'm not rating the hotel with less stars. The location is good and the room is clean. However, I would PAY ATTENTION to the cons: 1- the AC didn't work half the time we were there. We weren't the only ones complaining about this issue. For the price of this hotel, I would expect everything to be perfect. 2- the food at the restaurant was just OK and the portions were small. 3- the service at the restaurant was very slow. I do NOT recommend this hotel unless you are OK with dealing with those issues.

    The staff here are fabulous. It's a really nice and low key place to stay and much more chilled out than the other places in Kendwa. Pretty basic but lovely staff and restaurant.

    Overall, good value for the price. We stayed for 2 nights. Property on the beach as advertised! Staff was nice. The massages were our FAVORITE part! A must do! Just a few complaints: 1. No wifi in the rooms. You can ONLY get wifi in the restaurant. There's not even wifi near the front desk. Our room was relatively close to the restaurant, but as SOON as you leave the eating area the wifi could no longer be detected. So that was very inconvenient as we were using whats app as our main point of communication with our driver, family, and friends. So lots of late responses to messages. 2. The breakfast was good overall. Good variety. HOWEVER, there were flies flying all over. For some reason that was not AT ALL an issue for dinner, but the flies made eating breakfast nearly impossible. Had to throw away some parts of my food because of it. 3. This is likely just Kendwa beach itself, but there were a lot of vendors on the beach to the point that we were approached every 15 min. That took away from the quiet relaxing beach experience that I wanted to have. Having the shops nearby was convenient, but it's just the being constantly approached that i did not like. They would say "Jambo, where you from?" As SOON as you engage them, here comes the sales pitch! One was even like "give me five" as his opener. It got old pretty quick. 3. Only one restaurant on the property. It had some variety, so it wasn't bad for the price, but we had some snapper the 2nd night which was dry.

    This is my 4th time back and I was very surprised to find that they have improved their guest services and added more rooms to the building. Madam Sofie looked after us really well and accommodated all our requests. We were given one of the new rooms that had just been completed which was lovely, it just needed a bit of shelving/cupboard space which probably hadn’t arrived yet. If you are looking for affordable accommodation right on the beach, this is the place to be in Kendwa.
