I can highly recommend Didimiza. With kind, helpful people, only a few rooms and owned and run by Tanzanians, everybody fully understands the meaning of customer orientedness with a personal touch. I enjoyed the cooking (they asked me what I preferred, which is fish and seafood, it was delicious!). And the rooms are basic, yet clean, nice and fumigated every...

Stayed at Didimiza for 4 nights, and couldn't be happier. The staff was going out of their way to accommodate me (Mohamed even carried me on his back when I cut my foot in a razor clam on the beach), the rooms were large and with good mosquito protection. There wasn't much choice for food (you only got what they...

"Food, glorious food!" is just one of the great reasons to stay at Didimiza. Varied, local and loads of it, - really super value and service with a five-star smile. This place is owned by a local family, and their biggest strength is probably the very welcome personal touch which is missing from most larger businesses. All the staff are...

When we arrived, Ahmad (the owner) was already waiting for us at the airport, but the car had a flat tire. It was fixed very quickly and we didn't have to wait much. It takes...

The cabins are lovely, we loved the food, and the excursions (we did snorkelling and swimming with whalesharks) are perfectly organized. But what we liked most was the staff: very friendly people who did really everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The...

I spent 5 nights there at the end of June and my stay was just great! I was looking for a quiet and typical place to stay, out of the beaten path. Mafia does’t have much activites to offer but just the fact that you can really get in touch with the locals means the plane trip. Didimiza guesthouse is...
