The bar staff are amazing - really hospital and friendly! Stunning location and the team are able to organise any taxis/trips etc really easily! The only downside was that we didn't have AC in the room and it was boiling at night!

Fun and casual hotel
The location of the hotel is great, it's close to kite-surf shops, in front of a beautiful beach and near very cool bars and restaurants. The rooms are ok, nothing fabulous but functional and charming. Unfortunately I was given a noisy room that was close to the staff room where they go in and out all day to do washing and storage so it wasn't very private. Also the windows cannot be closed so you can hear everything that's going on outside. I did request a change of room but this wasn't possible as all the other rooms were fully booked. They have a nice bar and they make good cocktails. The staff are super friendly and are always up for a chat. The wifi doesn't work in the room, only in common areas.

English Couple Retreat After Tanzania Safari
What a lovely little place! We stayed in the Bungalows which was lovely, the restaurant area isnt as lively as the Lodges (200m away) but that was fine by us! The pizza and cocktails offered at the Bungalow restaurant were delicious - far too many were eaten!! And the food at the Lodge restaurant was always lovely too. Comfy sunloungers and you're right on the beach which is perfect. You get used to the tides after a few days and its lovely to walk out on low tide too - we spotted a starfish and plenty of hermit crabs. The staff are so welcoming and helpful, you guys really made the stay so thank you! We didnt do as many trips as we'd hoped as we just got too relaxed to want to move!! But there's plenty of activity options on offer. We didnt have aircon but the fan was more than sufficient - even needing to turn it off a few nights as we got too cold! Rooms are nice and airy with the windows. If you're after a low key, relaxing, beach stay and don't want to spend a fortune then Blue Reef is ideal!

Wonderful holiday at the Blue Reef
We stayed for 8 nights and felt great. Excellent service, good food and lovely cocktails. We stayed in the lodge, where the room is not like in a hotel, but is so comfortable with a king size bed, impeccable cleaned every day. We loved the premises, very offering for relaxing with the ocean view... Thank you and hope to come back next year :)

Amazing people and place
We were fetched at the airport and brought to the lodge where we were welcomed by Nicky, Tom and a few members of staff. We were showed to our room and when we settled in, received a welcome drink, prepared by Nutty and served with a friendly smile. We automatically felt welcome and at home. The next day we met Nathan (Simba) who was very welcoming and had a big smile on his face. Over the course of our stay we got to know EVERYONE more, and the more we got to know them, the more they felt like family. We weren't treated like strangers, we were treated like friends and towards the end, after we got to know them properly - like family. Nutty, Antony, Habibi, Wilimina, Bonny, Hashim and ALL the other members of staff were absolutely AMAZING to us and EVERYONE is always smiling. The food is absolutely amazing and the lodge caters for your needs, whatever that may be. The placement of the lodge is absolutely perfect all around, and I must say, seeing the ocean view and feeling the breeze constantly, is absolute bliss. Not a second goes by that your needs are not accommodated, you are never left feeling unwelcome, by anyone, at any moment in time. The parties were amazing too :) Simba and his girlfriend Sue, were amazing to us, we spent quite a bit of time with them and they showed us new places too, leaving us with memories that we not only made on our own, but memories made with new friends too.THANK YOU TO EVERYONE AT BLUE REEF and we will be back soon! Julia and Nicolette :)

Great place in Jambiani
Blue Reef is actually two lodges in two spots on the beach in Jambiani with same owners. Both have full bar service. One spot has a specialty for Pizzas with a stone stove and the other with a full restaurant that makes great dishes. Staff is friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is relaxed. It's right on the beach so you walk out of your room bare foot... Room is basic but for the price it's great. You don't spend too much time there anyway :) All in all a great stay.
