These are just some of the people that made our stay absolutely perfect. Thank you! We'll be back! Jennifer & Ben Ps. Whatever you do, don't miss the opportunity to visit the... More

My partner and I stayed at Dongwe ocean view on our final 2 nights in Zanzibar. The place is amazing, you can walk right onto the beach from the pool and restaurant area. The fruit and juices were fresh. The food was filling. We stayed on news years eve and the resort had entertainment, which was lovely. The rooms are... More

It is good to stay in long term for having slow time. Beach is near and you can touch it anytime you like to go to though some barkers are a bit many. I enjoyed fishing and boating as well as beach foot ball.

What makes this hotel are the friendly staff, tasty food and quiet beaches. You can exit the hotel and often only see a handful of people walking after 20 minutes of walking. On the downside if you're looking to do stuff in the area there is really nothing. The nearest town is a 9km! Big shout out to all the... More

Within minutes of arriving it was obvious we had picked the right hotel. Dongle Ocean View is not only located perfectly on the beach but is also run by a first class team of caring and attentitive staff. Their meal offerings are excellent and the food is seasoned to perfection. We particularly liked the fact that this is a quiet... More

A high end resort that is non-inclusive, the only reasonable complaint I have is that they charge you for drinking water in a country where you are not drinking out of the tap. But that's to be expected, no? The location is incredible. I've walked 90 min on the beach and can tell you this is the only hotel where... More

My husband and I had originally planned to stay at Dongwe for 3 nights and decided to extend our stay! We enjoyed our room (all rooms have an ocean view), the great food, tea time and most of all, entering the Dongwe family. Service is impeccable, staff is generous, available and most of all very welcoming. My husband, a football... More

We are a couple and we spent 4 days at the lodge. Room with a fantastic ocean view was clean with air conditioning, even if sleeping with the window opened was enough! Food at the restaurant was excellent and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed.
