I stayed for 5 nights and was overall pleased with the place. They had a wifi area, my included breakfast was decent (nothing to rave about), the pool was nice and the location was perfect. If you're Italian or speak Italian, this place is great. However, as a solo American traveler, I didn't feel very accepted. The few times people... More

I have stayed here with friends in Nov 2013. It is a very basic structure, not luxury porches and terrasses as elsewhere but in one of the very best locations of Zanzibar, practically no tide influence occurred. I had read dramatic reports on food and cleaning but I had a very comfortable and clean room and food, prepared by an... More

The hotel area was beautiful. It`s just by the beach with a beautiful view from the sunbeds. It`s a lot of sunbeds to use, from the viewpoint or by the pool. The rooms are ok, we hade som small insects on the bathroom, but the bed was ok. Though our fan in the room were quite noisy, and did bug... More

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
