I stayed at Mike's for 3 days and it was just amazing! Very nice rooms with aircondition, good prices, the most beautiful spot right on the beach. I am definitely going back! Mike is the best, takes very good care of his lodge and we enjoyed every moment with him. Don't miss out on going with Mike on his boat...

I went there as a part of a trip along the coastline of Tanzania. Pangani town is a sleepy, little town where the colonial influence is just as visible as in towns like Tanga or Bagamoyo (I went there, too). Just, it is way less touristic. Pangani Beach is about 15 minutes away from town and for me it was...

Had a great stay. Spacious rooms, very friendly staff and great views of sunrises and sunsets. The only downside was salty water from the taps but that's because the hotel is so close to the sea that the water source gets contaminated by salt. It's not seawater coming through the taps.
