Pongwe Beach Hotel, Pongwe: 775 reviews and 8 photos
We had a week there in June 2005.
It is a lovely place, with 13 bungalows right on the beach, with a restaurant/bar/lounge area behind it.
The rooms are basic but very nice, with big comfortable beds and a decent shower room.
The only drawback to the rooms is lack of air-conditioning which would be an absolute must in the hot seasons. Each of the room does have a large ceiling fan which is really effective, however, once the electricity is turned off on the complex at about midnight it does warm up again.
The food in the restaurant is superb. Lots of fresh fruit and sea food, and the staff are really friendly and efficient.
The beach is beautifully clean and has a Masai as security even though during the time we were there we didn't see anyone other than guests at the hotel, or fishermen at sea, or women harvesting sea weed. The sea is crystal clear and really warm.
I'd recommend the Pongwe Beach is you want somewhere lovely to go to, but just to relax and not do a lot.
