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.... More

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... More

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.

Twice visits in a row, two times very satisfied guests. Pina colada and my alcohol-free coconut kiss were of probably the double size and for the same price as we paied other place nearby. Definitely the largest drink we had in Nungwi 👍and indeed very tasty.

Great value place to stay for a couple of nights in Nungwi. The rooms are basic but perfectly adequate, you won't be spending much time in your room when the beach front is so beautiful and goes on for miles. There are shops and plenty of lovely restaurants on the doorstep which range from luxury to more budget (but still... More

I stayed 2 nights at Nungwi inn and really enjoyed it. Clean, stuff polite and helpful, with air conditioning in each room. Location is great, right on the beach. Not a posh place but better than others I've been in the village, good value for money. Great if you dive with Spanish Dancers Diving, just behind it!
