Personal retreate
This is a friendly, small hotel, that gives a personal service to guest who I found to be very accommodating. My rooms was a nice size, simple and very clean, and has working fans and air-condition. Please note the Wi-Fi connection was not great and is not available in your rooms which may be a good or bad thing? There was no fridge in the room so you can not keep drinks/water cold in your room. The food is all freshly made on site and there is a good selection for breakfast including really nice doughnuts, dinner is quite late in from around 7.30pm (this is not a buffet), you are served a four course meal, again freshly made, good quality and tasty with at lot Italian inspired dishes, personally I would have like to have some more options of traditional dishes from Zanzibar, but the pasta is very good here. I did need to have lunch as the portions are generally conservative so dinner and breakfast was not enough for me. The grounds are very attractive and well kept the best looking along this beach. This hotel also clean the beach every morning outside the hotel removing rubbish and seaweed, most other hotels do not clean the beach which means that other parts of the beach can have rubbish, plastic and seaweed which is very sad as its a beautiful place. Overall I would recommend this hotel if someone wanting to stay in this area. The staff take pride in their hotel, beach, service and guests and make you feel very welcomed like I was in a personal retreat.

Wow wow wow
sensational.. from the perfect location to the perfect staff...we stayed here for 5 nights of pure bliss.. the food is to die for... we were excited everyday as to what we would be eating for dinner... The ambience at Mvuvvi is rarely found ,so relaxing you need to remember to breath...we came from royal Zanzibar at Nungwi to finish our holiday..Our only regret was we didn't stay at Mvuvvi the whole time .. Book your stay with this place the reviews are a credit to the attentive owner & his great staff
