Our stay at the Smiles Beach Hotel was extremely relaxing. Food whatever ordered was freshly cooked. The Manager who was a Lady from the Netherlands was very polite and helpful to make our stay and visit memorable. I wish her all the success in life

If you are looking for some peace and quiet.. This is the place.
Well equipped rooms, with good air conditioning and a very good mosquito net.
The whole staff was very friendly and nice. We arrived late in the evening and we had a great welcome by them.
A nutritious breakfast including fresh vegetables and fruits waited for us every morning at the restaurant.
The administrative manager, danique, was very helpful and took care of every need or question we had.
The hotel restaurant is pretty good with tasty food and descent prices.
The only downside is that the bar does not have any alcohol.. But other than that, everything was excellent

Stunning Location



Spent 9 days at Smiles, staff were great though a little slow! Breakfast was the best meal we had there, think generally food needs to be improved and they desperately need a bar. Lucky access to other bars and restaurants was simple. Rooms were clean, comfy and cool. Stunning pool! Overall we had a great stay, love Zanzibar.

Great place!



We've been at smiles for a week and had a great time! A very nice spot in the middle of the 'bigger' resorts. Good breakfast served by friendly staff.
Manager was always helpful and friendly.
If you go to Nungwi just pick Smiles!

It’s the small things that make it such a lovely place



I'm writing this review while laying at the beach in Zanzibar.
I am absolutely amazed by the charm of this place.
As per the title, it's the details that make the stay here so nice.

The charming staff, the personal welcome letter, the personal "karibu" message on a blackboard at the reception, the service at the breakfast, etc..

All in all, smiles beach seems very well managed and the staff does its best to make you feel very welcome.

The rooms are cosy and bright, the bathroom is very clean and very large, there's a lot of available sun chairs at the beach, and everything is very well looked after.

I would definitely book this place again, and I highly recommend it to all travelers that are looking for a reasonably priced and quiet accommodation, perfectly situated at Nungwi beach.

Perfect for a relaxed holiday on the beach



Rooms are large and clean with a wonderful view. Fridge and a tv in the room (the tv won't be needed when you stay here. Go and enjoy the pool and the beach instead).
Staff is friendly and helpful.
The atmosphere at the hotel makes sure that you are relaxed at all times.
Great location on the beach and with a wonderful pool.
If you aren't happy on arrival you will definitely be when leaving. It's hard not to leave with a Smile on your face after a stay at Smiles.

Weeks stay in Nungwi



Lovelt litttle place right on the sea. Nice double room with basic furniture and beds. Safety box and fridge is present.Basic and a little worn bathrooms but clean. Room is serviced twice a day with help to set up mosquito net. Great view from the balcony. Pool area and sunbed area is great with a view over the sea. There is also a beach volley court and a spa. You will recieve pool towels. Restaurant is decent. Breakfast is basic but acceptable. Service is very friendly, it is a bit slower than western standards but this is the case in the whole of Zanzibar. Dinner menu is also ok with decent variety and dishes are above average. No alcohol is served but you can buy your own and drink ar the pool area and room. Good availability for water and other activities and tours in the area. There are also many restaurants and bars along the beach to choose from. The shopping is not great in the area but there are som shops in the village.

This was booked through diveshop as a package (Divine diving) and very good value for money.
