We stayed here as part of a tour, it has everything you need, the beds are comfy with a large mosquito net covering. The room had a fan & air con. With on suite, toilet could have been better but shower was very powerful and hot. Once you walked through the well secure grounds you have the restaurant/bar area where...

The only good thing in this place is the nice view and the close beach. There was a really bad smell in the room, the toilet did not flash (although they have tried fixing it few times), the stream of water stopped working a few times during the shower. All and all we feel that this inn is definitely not...

We stayed one night at the Nungwi Inn as we spend the weekend diving at the Spanish Dancer Diving School. The rooms are not extraordinary but they were clean, right on the beach with just a few meters to the dive school. When you are at Nungwi Beach, you hardly spend much time in your room anyway, so we did...

Nice location on the beach but don't be in a hurry...It took us nearly one hour to get our lunch food and we nearly left without paying. Once the food finally came it was decent local dishes but nothing special. Only good point: it seemed to be home cooked.

A friend and I stayed at the Nungwi Inn for three nights during the week to dive, beach, and do a few yoga classes. It's definitely a more economical option for Zanzibar but not cheap. I would say "you get what you pay for" but really I think the price is still too high for the low quality of service....

We came here, and I was disappointed with my curry, it was very plain and no flavour to it. A long wait for food. Other people had good meals however. However the beach the restaurant is on is beautiful!

we travelled during the peak season, although we made a reservation but we were surprised that there was no room for us, the manager was kind enough to recommend a near by hotel for us till the next day when there was a free room. The hotel is in front of the water so you wont be in your room...

Great beach front location, very reasonable priced food and the service not too slow. If you want to escape the beach boys but stay on the water front this is the spot. Go for happy hour!!! Delicious cocktails for 6000tsh!!

Great place to eat. Very good pasta at reasonable prices. Service is pole pole but tends to be quicker after the first visit assuming you have tipped the staff properly. Very good place for lunch since it's shaded. Situated very near a massage place, which is perfect after lunch. Beware of the cats.
