Pemba Beach Hotel review
How to comment such a place: a big hotel almost empty, full of potential and possible high rank activities which is spoilt by an appaling management.

A one night stop-over
We'd had a pretty stressful day by the time we arrived late at Pemba Beach. We'd almost missed our flight after being told it was full, and when we finally arrived in Pemba, our luggage was still in Dar, so we weren't in the best of moods!
The hotel seemed fine though really we were only there for 12 hours, so probably not the best judges. Not many of the staff spoke english which proved tricky at first when trying to speak to someone about our luggage.
The room was clean and the view was beautiful from the balcony. The food wasn't amazing but it was perfectly fine.
