"Pongwe - relax and chill out" Pongwe Beach Hotel Tip by angelina_alix

Pongwe Beach Hotel, Pongwe: 775 reviews and 8 photos


Absolutely recommend Pongwe Beach Hotel. It's as good as the pics on their website, if not better.

Pongwe is paradise. Great location, friendly staff, good food.

Ok, the sea goes out but that doesn't matter as you can go out and explore.

Accommodation is comfortable and the sea breeze keeps you cool at night.

If you get a chance there's Pongwe school which is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. A good time to go is between 10 and 10.30 as that's when the children are on a break. Make sure you see the Headmaster as he likes to meet everyone who visits the school. He's asked for the following: geometry sets, chalk (coloured & white), swahili / english dictionary, calculators. The children are always keen to have pens too. Currently there are 117 children attending.

Unique Qualities: Lovely pool that overlooks the sea.

Great food.

Friendly staff.

Fabulous cocktails.

Fantastic place to chill out.
