We stayed in Matemo for five days in August (Winter time, although temperatures were always above 25ºC) and apart from the day before the last, where it almost rained and the wind was a bit annoying, the weather was fine (best days were definitely the 1st and the last). When there was no wind at all, the water was literally a pool!!! Still, even with a breeze, the sea was extremely safe (one could hardly speak of waves as we know them). The food was ok; at breakfast there was the normal stuff - bread, cereals, fruit, milk, fruit juices - not fresh though; at dinner there were fish & meat courses, salads, pasta; the pastries were excellent!!! I expected more fruit variety...but this is an island; anyway, the overall impression is positive! Service was excellent, although there was no room service. At night, one could take some nice walks or simply stay outside the cottage having a drink and enjoy the peace and quietness of the island and the starry sky. I don't remember having to worry with insects.

Powder white beaches, turquoise sea, unbelievable seafood. If youre looking for a little piece of paradise then Matemo Island Resort is the place for you. We flew in from Pemba in a light plane the views of the sparkling ocean were fantastic. Clear blue water and if youre really lucky you may even spot a whale or two.
