My husband and I stayed here after a week of Safari travel and camping in Serengeti, and Tanzania. This is a beautiful relaxing hotel on the quiet East coast of Zanzibar, with white beach, and turquoise Ocean just steps away. We had the honeymoon suite which was large, spacious, well furnished with sofas and chairs, and has great views from... More

We stayed 4 nights at Dongwe Ocean View and had a fantastic time there!! Staff were very friendly. A special warm thank you to Juma at the reception who was so friendly, professional and efficiant. The hotel is beautiful, clean, comfortable, not too big and set in a wonderful area. The room was great, bathroom clean and big enough. Each... More

This quiet, simple hotel on the eastern coast of Zanzibar was perfect for a romantic trip for my girlfriend and me. The hotel is clean and classy, with friendly service and a nice pool. It is quite small, only about a dozen rooms, so it is not crowded. I'll start with the positives, and then move on This is not... More

It is a perfect hotel, but probably not for everyone. If you prefer posh and luxurious grand-hotels, that would be not your thing. Dongwe is a small and simple hotel, but extremely charmful and nice. My boyfriend and I spent there 4 days after our safari and we loved this place. We generally prefer cosy hotels with personal attention and... More

This hotel is in a beautiful setting, literally right on the beach. With only 18 rooms (all with balconies/patio, some on the ground floor), it is small, never feels crowded, plenty of space. We had a lovely triple room, double and a single bed, slightly awkward with 2 teenage boys, but they were happy to share, especially since the single... More

I spent two nights at Dongwe and two nights at the sister resort. Both were absolutely AMAZING! Dongwe is perfect for couples. It's a small, quiet resort, but very beautiful. The room was nice and very clean and had a nice, spacious balcony where you can watch a beautiful sunrise in the morning. There's a large wooden deck for sun... More

We stayed for 6 nights at Dongwe Ocean View in July 2014 and we loved the relaxed atmosphere here. Beautiful beach, kept very clean and the softest white sand you can imagine. We had a room at the top floor with a large balcony and great views of the sunrise. The rooms are comfortable, the service is good and just... More

We spend 3 nights here on our honeymoon. The hotel is clean, staff is very friendly and the food is very good. The salads for lunch are delicious. Most important: the location is beautiful. All rooms have an incredible view on the beach/ indian ocean. Also make a booking at 'the Rock Restaurant'. Incredible location and the food is ok.... More

We aren't big beach-goers but we loved this one, on the eastern shore of Zanzibar. We went some time ago and I neglected to praise this other fine places we stayed in Tanzania. The hotel is lovely in an unpretentious but plenty luxurious way. We chilled in the room, the balcony, the ourdoor bar/rest, and of course all along the... More

Lovely hotel with a lovely setting. Rooms were clean and beds super comfortable. Staff friendly and very attentive (a bit too attentive and in a rush to clear the table from dishes when we were still eating). View from the balcony was great, overlooking the nice pool area and beach. Food was the best I've eaten in africa, we ate... More
