The food was the same over the period I was there and they didnt have most of what was on the menu (no prawns). Breakfast was the same everyday, no...

The room comfort is simple but more than sufficient. Bathroom was clean. The food was fine. Menue is changing every week and has two choices. The team was excellent (Lobby, Restaurant,...

I visited this hotel with my partner. It's so private with very few guests. Absolutely loved the the staff and beach and felt like we had our own piece of heaven. Tip it's secluded so not for those that like the hustle and bustle

Our wonderful trip to Zanzibar in January was met by having the Dongwe Ocean View as our base. The hotel is located on the south-east section of the island, and is about a 1 hour and 10 minute drive from the airport. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Juma and Anita, and with us arriving at midday and normal...

The service was excellent, staff were very helpful and courteous. Room very comfortable and clean, virtually leading onto the beach. Food was excellent too, loved the selection of local fruits and juices and the addition of spiced tea. Gardens were nicely laid out and well maintained. The hotel tailor was most helpful and made us a fine selection of Zanzibar...

We stayed here for 5 nights in December. Everything was perfect. Our room was on the top floor, with a balcony overlooking the ocean. Everything was very clean. The tides didn't bother us at all, since the pool is absolutely awesome. Most importantly, the staff are very friendly and they really care that the guests have a great experience. Especially...

We loved our stay at Dongwe Ocean View. It is located in paradise. The pool and open air restaurant are located steps from the beach. There is a wonderful area to hang out in at the open air restaurant. The beach is incredible. The low tides allow one to walk out a long way. The water is so warm it...

Dongwe Ocean View is really a perfect place for relaxing! Nice surroundings, service minded staff, paradise beach and the view from the hotel and rooms is fantastic. Food was OK and the rooms could need renovation, but if you are not picky, the rooms are OK. If you are looking for party nightlife this is not the place to go...

This is a small hotel; mostly couples and small families during my stay. My room large and was kept very clean, had necessities (bed with net, safe, clean washroom with hot water, tables, wardrobe) and large windows looking towards the ocean. Housekeeping came twice daily. There is a communal covered area with games and tv that is relaxing to sit...
