Nice small hotel, beautiful beach, clean rooms,
When we checked in the shower was broken, toilet-seat was broken – but both were repaired immediately, breakfast pretty poor, food not that good, pretty expensive

Highly recommend to stay in Smiles Beach Hotel. Loved everything. Very clean place, great breakfast, nice, friendly staff. Beach around the hotel is fantastic, you can easily walk to the Nungwi Beach and Turtles Aquarium, loads of bars around.
Beautiful beach, it was really hard to get to the hotel itself because the roads weren't prepared the google map had showed us the wrong way. However, the staffs were friendly, the swimming pool was beautiful. Breakfast was nice.
This hotel really met our expectations. The staff was very friendly and professional.

the above mostly answers your question... if you look on the smiles beach reviews photos you can see some of the high and low tide pics. I would definitely recommend staying here rather than with the huge tourist hotels further south, although the swimming would be better south. smiles pool is not really one that you'd spend time swimming in. however the further south you are the more people there will be so it depends really if you want to be with the tourists. from smiles you have quite a lot to see and do including the nungwi village - which is interesting in itself.
dont forget that wherever you are staying the locals will be selling their packages, ie snorkelling trip to the islands for the day, which is relatively good value ($25-$30 US including lunch and snorkel gear) so you can always go off swimming elsewhere on a day trip.
zanzibar is a lovely small island so do try to see stonetown and do the spice tour too, that was very interesting!
