The hotel and the park area are very big and beautiful. The beach is full of sea weeds but it's perfectly suitable for swimming (no sea urchins). Besides the accommodation has two pools which are clean and beautiful. Food was good and plenty, we had a lot of choices for every meal. Air contitioning in the room and the spa/fitness room were a big plus for us. Lots of sport programs which we loved (petanque, volleyball and joga). Management of the hotel is very caring and helpul, the ripped moskito net was changed immediately. Ideal for families and groups. The room was musty and there was not a lot of space for our packages. The moskito net was ripped (but we got it changed). The hotel is rahter busy and noisy.

We visited Kiwengwa beach resort with family and friends. Our stay was comfortable and the staff were very caring. Beach is awesome and water is safe to swim. The pools are a good size. Food is good but can be improved by adding more variety of cuisines.

What a break, we spent lovely easter break at Kiwengwa beach resort. Rooms are spacious and clean. Its a resort where customers serving is priority. Every one is so welcoming. Its a nice property with lovely pools, amazing jacuzzi bar, crystal clear beach. Our check was smooth by Mr Saidi. We were offer free in room wifi for all our devices by Mr Ahmed the Manager. Mr Hari took personal interest in making sure that our room is nice and our jacuzzi is working. Fabian the receptionist was always ready to help for any requests. Mr Atef the F&B manager made sure that we had vegetarian choices in the buffet. He made an extra efforts and gave just a vegetarian platter too. We were offered a free buffet lunch on the day of our departure, it was very kind of him. We were offered a bottle of cold water while leaving for our one hour drive back to airport by the manager Mr Ahmed. All the staffs are smiling and greeting. I will come back to this resort again.
