The hotel is excellent. I very much enjoyed the hotel and its facilities. I made three good friends during my visit. They were also guests there. I want to recognize the staff for going above and beyond to ensure I was cared for during my stay. I wish to point out one bellman in particular. Nassan greeted me each day and asked if there was anything he could do for me to improve my stay. He is so cheerful he gave me a good boost each time I met him. My room was a pool view room and it was perfect. It was spacious, clean and the A/C was perfect after a day in the sun. From my room, the pool was maybe 20 meters away. The beach was about 70 meters. I did not like the approach to the property so much. The public area outside the hotel is somewhat of a poor area and the access road is not paved and is in poor condition.

Room Tip: Save money and stay in the Pool View Rooms. Good value and just as close as beach view rooms.

Hotel's Favorite
I was I Dar Es Salaam on work and decided to spend a few nights in Zanzibar Having looked at all the options on the internet, I chose the Double Tree Hilton in Nungwi and in retrospect am so happy I did, as it is truly a fabulous resort, with a great location and has everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The beach is pristine with white sands and emerald blue waters and unlike some of the other resorts I was in Zanziba that I read about, there’s no issues on this beach with the low tide where one is able to swim at all times during the day and is a great plus point. The pool is also nice and big with a swim-up bar and really friendly bartenders! Food and drink quality is excellent with a wide variety of cocktails to choose from. I reccomend the full board option as it is great value for money. There are also great options for nightlife with popular nightspots only a short walk away on the beach - should you feel like partying. Most importantly, the whole resort is well sanitised with high standards of hygiene - everyone has to wear them while serving at the restaurant etc I will definitely be back here with my family the next time and reccomend the resort for couples and families with children. Hats of to the Mr Salah and his team in providing the guests a memorable stay and more importantly help us to forget about all about our daily cares of the world - and most of all provide a brief respite from covid.

I came here for my 40th birthday trip after a long time of no international travel, so wasn't sure what to expect. Regarding cleanliness, this hotel went above and beyond to ensure all areas were cleaned...felt totally safe! As a diamond member I was upgraded to a nice room right on the beach. Huge walk-in shower, comfy bed and linens, and the A/C worked perfectly. The food was exceptional! From breakfast, it was nice to see the staff enforcing guests to use gloves when using the buffet....great selection of foods and a changing menu every day. Had dinner at Fisherman's Grill the first night...ended up going back a few more nights it was so good. The service was top-notch and the employees were very friendly. The area of Nungwi was really cool and everything was walking distance. It was nice to stroll out of my room to the beach and go for a walk....there are a lot of hustlers on the beach, but they are contained there. The resort had security around the clock to make sure non-guests were not coming up to sell to the people on the lounge chairs. But if you want a fresh coconut, souvenir, massage, etc....simply walk down and anything is yours. My wife took advantage of a massage package....great value. She never wanted to leave! And I spent my time at the beach bar and pool bar....the entire bartender crew were fantastic!!!

I had the best stay at this resort in Nungwi. To begin with, the staff are extremely friendly and they welcome every guest with a yummy homemade cookie. I swear, they are so good! Second, they have the second best restaurant in Zanzibar (I'd rate it as the first since I like the food more than The Rock). Five stars are not enough for this hotel. Everything was perfect and I enjoyed my stay so much! I highly recommend this resort and I will definitely come back.

We spent 12 amazing days in this resort. From the day we arrived (early check out in the morning thanks to the Hotel) until the day we left (late check out was available for a fee, with buffet lunch included) All inclusive package was perfect for us. Very attentive staff, always happy and taking care of us. Really comfortable beds.(rooms were cleaned everyday) Good, tasty and fresh food. Nice drinks. Live band a few nights (good music!!) we will be happy to go back there!! Asante sana. Hakuna matata
