2 pools and great view of the beach. Good to have beach loungers behind a hedge as there are a few people trying to sell things on the main beach and it gets a little tiring. Food was great and room was really nice.
The village is quiet and not much to do there. This was fine for us as we had just finished a big camping trip and wanted to just chill and read but if you want more bars and restaurant options you might want to pick a different village.
Beautiful quiet place near a very stunning and chilled out beach. The staff were incredibly friendly and competent and all spoke English very well.
Just a slight niggle but it was quite windy on certain nights. May have just been the time of year though.
Good and friendly staff. Beautiful view from our room ! (We were upgraded to a sea view room). The food especially the hamburger!! We would recommend it to our friends and family.
You can't go out of the hotel at night, there are no bars or restaurants but that has nothing to do with the hotel. The hotel is great.
eco friendly - the staff were very friendly - the rooms are nice
the food could be better, the shower water less salty
The staff (which was lead by the Italian manager) was fantastic - every single one of them from the cleaning ladies to the bar men. I will definitely be back.
The WiFi is not the best and definitely needs upgrading apart from that no faults.
With a stay at Villa Kiva in Matemwe, you'll be on the beach, within a 15-minute drive of Mapenzi Beach and Muyuni Beach. Featured amenities include laundry facilities and a library. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free valet parking is available onsite.
