Pros: The staff at Malaika Beach resort is ALWAYS very friendly, accommodating and friendly. I will highly recommend this hotel for anyone wishing to visit Mwanza. The setting is perfect, tranquil, serene and spectacular at sunset. The location is on the shores of the lake and away from the noisy city, yet a short drive by taxi. They will even book your safari and any other excursions from the hotel.

10.0 Excellent

4.6 Okay
Pros: Great location, lovely restaurant staff.
Cons: Outlets in room didn’t work. There was no telephone index and O (operator) didn’t work so I couldn’t call reception when I realized late in the evening that the devices weren’t charging. A technician finally fixed one outlet but moved in and out of the room so often that swarms of tiny flies got everywhere. Then the lights over the bed near the repaired outlet would not turn off and they stayed on all night. Staff in the morning offered a sorry but not even a free drink for the inconvenience. It also would have been appreciated if they told guests that it is the season of the little flies and do NOT leave open suitcases and closets or the flies will get into everything. Also, tell guests the mosquito net is for the flies and USE IT. There were piles of dead flies on the floor, on the netting and in my suitcase in the morning. Very strange omissions by the staff and overall disappointing for the price. My first hotel in Mwanza for much less was much better.
10.0 Excellent

2.9 Mediocre
Cons: * Overall very poor value for money, had to pay $240 for 2 rooms for 1 short night which was spent changing rooms, etc. *First room not at all like picture on, not even in same building, bathroom extremely dirty and old, bedding had hairs, bodily stains and blood on. Shower floor was broken, with plastic looking like it might collapse. Towels dirty. Curtains stained hanging off rail and not wide enough to close. Very noisy from outside. Asked to be moved. * Second room, similar to picture on, again, extremely dirty bedding in both rooms that we booked. Again bedding hadn’t been changed from previous guest, it was dirty, with bodily stains and what looked like blood. Staff tried to get clean bedding, however they just got bedding from other rooms off other beds. I had to insist on clean bedding from the laundry. This was at 11.30pm. We wanted to have a shower/wash but had no towels, the towels that were brought to our room again were dirty, stained and had what appeared to be fresh blood on. The staff looked surprised that we were complaining and tried to say it was rust. We turned the water on and it was brown, so had to let it run. Water smelt damp/musky. Door onto the balcony couldn’t be locked and the staff just said they didn’t have the key, as if it wasn’t a problem. At midnight, after 3 hours of changing rooms and trying to get clean bedding and towels we finally were able to sleep, though the room was noisy with other guests trying to get into their rooms. *Breakfast, was awful, no cutlery, no plates, no cups, no staff to clear tables or replenish food. *We transfered to another hotel. *I can not understand how this hotel has such a high rating on
