Location: can't be beat. Nungwi is the best beach in Zanzibar, and Baobab is on one of the nicest stretches of Nungwi beach. We absolutely marveled at the sand, water, swimming conditions, etc. There are also nice places to walk nearby, including various dive shops, cafes, and restaurants. Food: average, but Italian. I don't want to eat pasta every night... More

This hotel is located on one of the best parts of Nungwi beach. It is so beautiful and pretty. Also easy to walk back and forth on the beach to visit other places. However... This hotel, in fact, I believe the majority of Nungwi beach resorts have connections with Italian tourist agencies, hence the constant flooding of italians. Staff speaks... More

not a luxury, but you know African specifics. Recommended that you take optional excursions. Good cuisine in an Italian style. The staff does not speak much English, but it is helpful and friendly. Hotel needs a renovation. Is tired of 15 years of use. Beautiful sea and beach, complete lack of loungers on the beach.

One of the hotels I visited when I was in Africa, honestly speaking, this is where you will get rip-off. I guess there is some kind of difference in price range among each racial groups that you are part of. the white sand beach is stunning, this resort is bluffing. the owner or operator needs to put in some serious...

The place was functional - relatively clean rooms, decent beach. Decent proximity to reasonably priced food. Decent value for the price. Wifi only in the lobby and pretty weak. I just think you could do better elsewhere - there are truly tons of properties along Nungwi Beach.

We fell for the pretty bungalows with thatched roofs, but unfortunatelly there was little laidback beachbungalow feel to this place. It is a huge ''all inclusive'' style hotel with mainly Italian ''all inclusive'' guests. Most hotels in Nungwi are for package holidays. Food is buffet style served in a large restaurant at the beach. Almost every evening there was a... More

We spent a week in one bedroom standard room bungalow which was a short walk from the beach. The room was very basic. There was a small fridge, but no safe. The safe was at reception and you could only access it at certain times of the day. Bizaar. Same with the wifi. The moschito net over the bed had... More

Overall it was really great holiday, hotel staff is very kind, when anything happens, everybody try to help you. There are many kind of animation - aqua gym, voleyball, petangue, darts... Food is excellent and not the same everyday. The beach is very nice and when no wind, oceanlife is beautiful.

We chose Baobab as the position was said to be the best (in the north of the island) as it suffers less when there is low tide and i can confirm this. The position of the village was fantastic, we have just gotten married and wanted a quick honeymoon while awaiting the real one in the new year. We upgraded... More
