Stayed for 8 nights in Ocean front room. Comfortable bed but room smaller than we expected and a little tired looking. We chose the B&b option. Breakfast was standard buffet fare, though quite varied. Had a couple of evening buffet meals, nothing special and overpriced. Fisherman's Grill was better but again pricey. Glad we had the option to eat out,... More

A nice hotel, rooms are ok. I think the room prices are a bit too much. Staff, especially at the reception, were not so friendly and what surprised me the most is that they did not have warm water! Breakfast is really good. Wifi is also restricted. I took a message at the spa and that was amazing!

Positives - Staff are very helpful. Lovely beach location. Pool and bar are great. Bed comfortable. Negatives - Rooms are tired looking and need a revamp. Wifi keeps dropping out. Also the area is very noisy. Kept being woken at night. Never experienced so much noise before

Is it worth? Will it meet the purpose? This are the questions I asked myself after reaching here. I spend three nights here with my family from 7th of July. Nungwi is on the extreme north of Zanzibar, which take approximately 1 hour 30 minutes’ drive from Zanzibar airport. To reach the hotel we have to drive another kilometer, from... More

We had the opportunity to stay at the Doubletree in Zanzibar. We chose this hotel because I am a HiltonHonors member so I typically stay at Hilton hotels when we travel. The hotel is the closest hotel to the small village. I'm not sure how old this property is, but it is starting to show it's age. Check in was... More

We stayed at the resort for 8 nights. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the location of the hotel and the closeness to the waters edge was out of this world. We had a really lovely time. A special thanks to the assistant resort manager, Sean for making our stay very special.... More
