My friends and I lodged her for 4 nights. The hotel has a private beach and the water was amazing. I spent 2 days relaxing at the pool and the beach. The Dolphin Bar at the pool had the best service at the hotel. The food was decent but 2 orders were a little disappointing. (Do not order the chicken...

After 3 weeks on the go with safaris and trekking we wanted some R&R and stayed here for 2 nights. We wish we had stayed longer. Whilst not a fan of resorts I must say this has changed my mind somewhat. The location is perfect, the food amazing, the service great and the facilities very good. They take pride in...

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your positive review. When it comes to the forms of entertainment, we like to support the locals and might not always seem "polished" :-) but they try their best, shame. Thank you for kind understanding regarding your air-conditioning and WIFI problem. We would be honoured to welcome you back one some day. Kind regards,

Rooms were spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable, staff was friendly and free wifi. The beach can either be very low or very high depending on time of day. The food was ok, overall we enjoyed our stay.

Would like to say that I have really enjoyed being there.. the hotel is very clean and the staff is so friendly but the way to the hotel is really bad, too far from the main town (stone town) you need maybe 1 and a half hour to reach it.

Perfect location overlooking a white sandy beach with clear, blue, warm sea (think front-cover of a holiday brochure). Thatched roofs on buildings creating a cosy cottage feel with Queen Rooms 15 steps from the beach. Welcoming, attentive, friendly staff who (mostly) are always smiling! Spotlessly clean rooms with all you need. A choice of buffet restaurant with an abundance of...

We have visited Double Tree in Zanzibar twice, i.e. Sept 2013 and Sept 16, and are Dying to go again. The resort is right on the beach, with only wooden dhows as far as you can see, and the beautiful turquoise sea that is always so warm and inviting. Definitely not as commercialized as some of the larger resorts. There...
