A beautiful hotel with an amazing garden vegetation. The facility is situated by a beautiful, wide beach with white and soft as flour sand .This is the only beach that was cleaned daily by hotel staff and really clean. There was a lot of algae while walking on the beaches by other hotels. The hotel owns a beautiful private pier stretching out into the ocean. At the end of it there is a great restaurant where you can have a drink and order food. There are a sun beds and you can go down to the ocean where you can swim with colorful fish. Amazing experience!!! The colors of the ocean are amazing!!! The Dongwe Beach Resort met our expectations 100 %. The food is very good. Great hotel service! There are very friendly, smiling and helpful employees. Everyone is amazing!!! Special thanks to Salum from the reception who was always helpful and extremely polite. All the service there is a treasure. Thanks to everyone!!! The hotel manager is an Italian who knows how to maintain a high level of service for guests. On the day of departure he extended our stay in the rooms until 6pm. and organized a delicious dinner for the departing guests. A big plus for him, because you usually have to leave the rooms at 11am. We were also said with bottle of wonderful red wine and fruit that were waiting for us in our room. We give 6 points out of 5 !!! We will definitely come back to this beautiful and friendly place!!! I recommend one hundred percent!!!

What to say about the Dongue club Zanzibar? Simply fantastic. Arranged in a huge park, with various housing solutions, as sea view rooms, bungalows and suites in the park, in front of a beautiful sea. A swimming pool reminiscent of a small lake, a restaurant with excellent cuisine. The opportunity to go out to sea for snorkling or fishing, or to rely on the diving center for the entire range of PADI courses. In addition, evening entertainment and sports such as tennis, volleyball and archery will fill the days of those who are more demanding who are not satisfied with idleness on a white beach, basking in the sun. Furthermore, last but not least, the wharf. A structure that extends over the sea for 240 m, at the end of which there is a well-stocked bar an exclusive restaurant, ideal for a romantic dinner, which overlooks a stretch of sea in which to swim in peace, surrounded by curious fish and for nothing afraid of the human presence. It goes without saying that the staff is more than attentive to ensure that everything is perfect, thanks also to the direction of its Director Giorgio, who discreetly supervises everything. What else to say? seeing is believing

Myself and my friend James came to Dongwe during off-season and found it to exceed our expectations of what we had imagined. The receptionists are extremely efficient, pleasant and helpful, who greeted us with a welcome drink. In front of our rooms, we would find ourselves anxious to workout on the beach each sunrise. The luxury of floodlit tennis courts is also available. Evenings always felt safe as there were guards patrolling round making us feel relaxed for our evening stargazing. Swahili night events at Dongwe Resort were the most exciting. Each performance beat the previous one, with acts every Thursday night. The most true mix of traditional dancing, acrobatics, and snake charming is thoroughly entertaining. Experiencing the local vibe was definitely a highlight! The food also hit a home run. A consistent spread of factory made wood oven pizzas, to all you can eat pasta and the most authentic sauces. Fresh fruit and seafood is in abundance all year round and at Dongwe resort pay special attention highlighting local flavours. Dishes such as Urojo, mango soup, as well as boiled Pweza, octopus soup, which is believed to aid libido for men. An island and local speciality.
