The staff at Hakuna Shida were lovely Because it was low season the hotel was super quiet but they greeted us at check in with juice and provided a really good breakfast! The hotel itself was kept very clean and was a wonderful place to stay!

Very nice place ... the cuisine and the food are expérience you can't miss..We tasted the swahili buffet one night and it was so big that we could not eat everything. Kennedy is the best! The swimming pool small but helps a lot during low tide. ...

We stayed 11 nights at the Hakuna Shida and couldn’t think of a better place to be. It’s only a super short walk to the beach and many restaurants. Also the village with supermarkets is nearby. The staff was great and helped us in every way. Breakfast was more than enough and the food in general was fresh and tasty. We really liked to not having to pay after every meal (lunch or dinner) or drink. The staff just kept our bills and we payed them off before leaving. Highly recommended!

Me and a friend spent two nights in Hakuna Shida Guesthouse. The staff was wonderful and did a lot extra then they should have for the price!!! The rooms were simple but comfortable and we would definitely book again. The beach is really close by and the pool was great. We spent all our meals there because it was so delicious and we would love to have the guacamole recipe ;)
