I can't recommend the Dongwe Club enough. The value for the product was exceptional - though I think we were given a special rate. We received VIP attention from Giorgio the manager and Salvatore the Chef. The Club is expansive on a private white sandy beach. It is additionally unique because of a private Jetty with restaurants at the end... More

We landed up at Dongwe Vacanze Club by default. We hired a car and decided to "walk in" our way around the island. On the east coast mid Dec is apparently a quiet time so so many of the lodges were empty and felt deserted. Also, the quality vs price was ridiculous. Perhaps because this was essentially peak season. Anyhow,... More

The beach is beautiful and there is a very nice jetty, with sun beds, a bar and a restaurant at night.My children enjoyed swimming in the pool and walking on the reef at low tide. The... More

This club vacanze hotel is as luxurious and comfortable as one can imagine. It sits on a perfect dream-like beach, in a slightly more isolated area than the rather busy Kiwengwa or Nungwi. There is not much to say about the facilities, which were close to perfection, from the swimming pool to the tennis courts and the restaurants. As a... More

I am a resident in Zanzibar, living in Stone Town. When I have time for a break I often go to Club Vacanze to relax and enjoy the Italian hospitality provided by this luxury hotel. They have an amazing jetty and a super chef. I strongly reccommend this hotel for visitors of the island and its residents.

My husband and I stayed here for the first 3 days of a month long trip. We arrived exhausted, jet lagged and missing one bag. The manager, Samson and his friendly helpful staff were wonderful in getting things sorted and were able to locate and get the bag here within 24 hours without any follow up by us. Our room... More

Steve and I stayed at the Dongwe Ocean View for 3 nights at the end of August 2014. From the minute we arrived the setting, staff and local area have charmed and impressed us. There are only 18 guest rooms that are set in 2 different buildings, complete with a separate reception, social and bar/dining area. Around all the buildings... More
