Pongwe or Matemwe/Mnarani?

Hi all,

We're trying to plan the Zanzibar leg of our trip to Tanzania this July. We'll have a total of 5 nights there and we're thinking of spending the 1st 4 at the beach and the last night in Stonetown (at Dhow Palace since the cheap room at Emerson & Green's is booked that night). Right now, the following options are available:

1. 3 nights at Matemwe Beach Village, 1 night at Mnarani Beach (MBV isn't available the 4th night)

2. All 4 nights at Pongwe Beach

3. 2 nights at Matemwe, 2 nights at Pongwe

Thoughts? The budget is about the same ($130 - 140 for half-board) for all 3 places. We're not divers but Matemwe sounds like it has more to do and more people than Pongwe -- my wife and I are probably in the middle when it comes to being wanting to hang out with lots of people vs. keeping to ourselves.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
