Resort full of Italian guys, so everybody expect I am also Italian. Entrance to resort is really strange, and I was afraid at the beginning where I am going, but it was nice. Resort is quite big with small houses with pool, direct access to beach and nice fauna. You can also play ping pong, beach volleyball, darts, etc. I... More

This hotel is not worth staying at. It has a good location in Nungwi, however there are many hotels nearby too. Largest complaint was the cleanliness of the room. Upon checking in, our bathroom was dirty, there were bugs on the floor and in the bed. Other things such as the A/C did not work, people on the property with... More

Hotel was run down. And poorly cleaned. Upon check in to the room the bathroom had not been cleaned from previous. Air conditioning was not functioning and there was dead insects remains on the bed and in the corners of the room. Pool and private beach area was filled with local beach boys trying to sell you trinkets or some... More

We stayed 3 nights here at our trip to Zanzibar, and it was horrible.. When we arrived at the front gate we were told that the gate didn't work, and that the hotel was closed. After communication help from our taxi driver we finally understood, that we had to go to the beach and walk there to get to the... More

This hotel is in a great location on the beach, about a leisurely 10 minute stroll from the main 'strip' of bars and restaurants. The place is full of Italians and sometimes only the local staff would be the ones to talk to. If you just want to relax and laze by the pool or beach, I'm sure this place... More

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
