A freind and I arrived at this hotel, checked in and realised after an hour at the beach that we had not discussed price (a massive error on our part!) We approached the reception again, and were told that a night at the hotel would be DOUBLE the original price, that the tourist info office had quotedl!! They told us that we looked like we could afford it, despite that fact that we had been volunteers in Kenya, with no income for the previous 3 months! They were unwilling to bargain down, so unable to pay we decided to check out. We got ur luggage and returned the key to the reception on our departure. But the staff were furious and decided to follow us. The insisted that we pay $30 for leaving our bags in their room for an hour!! The tried to take our luggage and got their security man (who they said was the Police!) to escort back into the hotel. When we refused they assaulted us. Loacl tradesmen came to our assistance and told the two men and their security man to stop intimidating us. We were terrfied as we were both young females and the men were very forcefull. We would have left Nungwi only it was late evening. The locals escorted us to another hotel were we had an amazing time. They joked with us en route, of our misfortune being the entertainment at Nungwi Inn for the evening and that this hotel has an awful reputation of conning tourists. Go to Nungwi, but DO NOT STAY HERE!!!
