I stayed at Avani Pemba last week. It is a beautiful hotel and the staff are very helpful. I stayed in a studio apartment with balcony. The bedroom was fairly large and beds very comfortable. The room was upstairs and there is no lift which meant carrying the bags upstairs. The other negative is that there in provision to make...

The hotel was amazing and the view spectacular. It was definitely a great hotel and the pool was wonderful. The staff were very accommodating. The one issue is the wifi - which is pretty bad at the hotel but if you can survive without great internet for a few days, you'll be fine.

I had a great experience staying at Avani Pemba Beach resort. The rooms have beautiful interiors and the beach front has been set-up nicely.
