We went there for 1 colleague for dinner. Music techno too loud, we have asked to put low, but no result. Food came after 2 hours and several complaints. Portions and quality very low level. Indian manager came to provide details and criticize his African crew working for me, very bad behavior. In short, one of worst restaurant in my...

I stayed at Nungwi Inn in January as part of my Intrepid overland trip. This is not where Intrepid would normally stay and I sincerely hope that no-one from Intrepid ever has to go back. The management of this hotel need to have a long hard look with the service that they give especially as magically the electricity gets turned...

Very simle, laid back atmosphere, on the beach, we had a very tasty lunch (the curry is one if not the best we had in Zanzibar), we went back the day after before we left the Island. We did not stay at the hotel so can't comment on that.

Wanted pizza and so we came here. Choose two pizzas (one vegetable and one chicken) to split between us two. They were nice and filling. Service was good, as well as the WiFi. Our total including two Stoney Tangawizi's cost 30000TSH. Would recommend this place for a meal on the beach.

The focus of my time in Zanzibar was diving with Nungwi as my first stop. Picked the hotel as it was the cheapest option with the dive package offered by the dive shop and also where the dive shop is located. The convenience of being steps away from the dive launch site and beach was perfect. Based on previous reviews...

As another reviewer wrote, this place is a joke. The staff are honestly horrible. They do not care about any of the guests' concerns. When we first arrived they told us they had given away the rooms we had requested. We argued and argued and finally they 'found us' alternative rooms which were deplorable. The rooms were dirty, the lights...

We came to just chill on the beach and recover after our Kili Climb. The hotel was beautiful but the service was a transition from the friendly service we received from both our Arusha and Moshi accommodation. Perhaps not as friendly or hospitable as the others. The restaurant staff were great, however, going above and beyond. The location is top...

We've been here on a group travel. So the hotel wasn't our first choice. The beach is very Nice and the staff is helpfull. There was only one thing we didn't like as animal lovers. The were 4 sheppard dogs in a small shed all day long. We haven't seen them outside of there shed. They howl sadly everytime we...

Rooms are ran down, staff doesn't care. Our room was next to where they store the cows. You can imagine the smell. Management switches off the power to save on costs at several times during the day. They claim is a general problem, but hotels nearby function properly. Result: no fans working, no hot water. Tap from the toilet was...
