8.4.Very good.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This place is so close to a sandbar that seems like you are in Bora Bora. Pemba Paradise offers the tour and it was the highlight of our trip. Hands down the best water/island I’ve ever seen. Everybody said the same. The resort was better than expected and meet with genuinely nice people with big smiles. We booked an extra night and became friends with the awesome local owner. It’s fun, relaxing if any problems it will get handled fast.

  • 6.0.Good

    Hôtel qui a du potentiel, mais un très mauvais management. Problème récurent du style pas de pression à la douche, châsse d'eau qui fonctionne mal, il faut tout demandé, le wifi, le ménage etc....ménage fait à vôtre demande et encore faut attendre 2h et s'inquiéter de récupérer la clé. Excellent restaurant, le cuisinier et vraiment très bon, petit problème, attendre jusqu'à 1h30 le repas alors qu'il y a deux couverts c'est compliqué. Hôtel loin du village a pieds.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Très reposant

    Après une route très chaotique qui traverse la forêt presque noire , et un village nous voici a l'hôtel face a la mer . Personnel charmant , étant seul nous avions commander , poulpes , crevettes et même langouste pour 20 us par personne. Chambre faite un jour sur deux , wifi seulement au restaurant, piscine un peu verte dommage , mais jardin bien entretenu . Nous ne nous sommes pas baignés.
