I have stayed in different hotels in Zanzibar, and I chose Dongwe Ocean View during my nights in East of Zanzibar. East of Zanzibar, unlike the popular area like in Paje / Nungwi, it is rather quiet, and I enjoyed a lot having literally the whole beach myself during the day and the night. Very inspiring and walk out to... More

This was a great find and a haven of peace and tranquility to put the world behind you for a few days. It's a small boutique resort with just 2 blocks of rooms. All have ocean views and are exactly as the photo depicted. You can sit on your decks and watch the sun rising or setting and listen to... More

We ended our 2 week african adventure at this amazing resort, and it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The hotel, beach and food was top notch but it was the staff that made the difference. It was nice and small with only about 20 rooms, so we felt completely catered to and spoiled. Bar tab, massage, tips... More

This hotel may not be the highest star rating I have ever stayed in but it is certainly the most welcoming and most laid back relaxing place I have had the pleasure to have stayed. All of the staff are polite and so helpful. The reception staff speak near perfect english as do most of the staff. Cant fault the... More

It's beautiful and clean. I like how they spray the room while you are out for dinner so mosquitoes won't bother you at night. Breakfast was good especially the juice. They should have more variety when it comes to dinner. We only had buffet once during our one week stay.

The location was simply breathtaking - stretches of endless beach on both sides - so beautiful! The hotel is simple but clean - we had the most amazing view from our room. Wonderful and friendly staff.

My husband and I stayed at Dongwe Ocean View for three nights in January after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and going on safari. It's a bit remote, about an hour's drive from the airport, so if you're looking for nightlife/excitement, you might want to stay a bit closer to Zanzibar City. We just wanted to have a low-key, relaxing beach stay,... More
