After a grueling month in Ethiopia and the serengeti safari my wife and I needed Dongwe Ocean View. It's nothing less than a little slice of heaven. Situated an hour away from the mess of Stone Town, the Dongwe offers a boutique hotel of only 18 rooms all with an ocean view. We had room 108 on the top floor of one of the two buildings. Every morning we had a fabulous African sun-rise to greet us. The room was clean with nothing to be desired. The beach is swept clean every morning and the beach lounge chairs are washed and put away each evening. The centeral dining room is large with fairly decent food......
The staff goes out of the way to please!!!!! My money belt broke and the manager had it repaired in the village with a new zipper in under 3 hours at no charge! My driver needed a place to sleep and eat for our 5 night stay and the manager fixed him up with both for no extra charge to us or the driver. Clothes filthy from safari and washed and ironed each day. Nothing is left to chance at Dongwe Ocean View! The Rock restaurant is owned by Dongwe and is probably the most exotice restaurant in Africa. While we had a car and driver the hotel can arrange for a taxi to take you the 7 km to the restaurant. Please go....take your camera and enjoy.
