“Nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Good, but too many Italians. The hotel is runned by Italians and they are not used to other nationalities. Great animation, specially Andrea! Excursion offered also in English, but guides
Speak basic English. Otherwise, nice hotel and location.

We stayed at the hotel from the 18th to the 25th of June 2013.
The rooms were newly renovated. The staff is very helpfull and friendly.
The TV did not work the whole time we were there and was reported.
Beautifull beach with plenty beach chairs etc. and within walking distance off other hotels, restaurants. Fantastic vibe. Safe environments.
Towels not the best. Beach towels very old and faded.
Food is average. Breakfast is very boring. Same food served all 7 days. Lunch and dinner is 4/5 courses and good value. Take your own coffee. Their coffee is not the best, except for expresso etc. Overall impressed. Good value and will return.

A friend & I arrived there on the 4th of June and sadly left on the 11th June. At first the food was a bit basic but then it improved tremendously - I put this down to it being out of season.

Ally was the most fantastic host one could ask for. He is a man who knows his job very, very well & wants to make sure that all the guests are happy. We could ask him anything & he would sort it out. All of the staff were very, very nice and friendly. The Masai are also great people & having them as security was very reassuring.

I would definitely go back there as I was made to feel right at home. The only drawback is the chaps on the beach who pester you to buy stuff or sell excursions.

As we were there in the rainy season it was not too busy and they were renovating some rooms , but we had a free upgrade to a villa right on the beach so it did not bother us at all,it has recently come under new management and there was very friendly and helpful staff. Good chef en good food! 3 course lunch and dinner with free soft drinks and water. We extended our stay with one night and I would surely go back again!

Room Tip: There is no fitness center, but there is on site massage.

I stayed at my blue hotel for 7nights (14-21May)and my experience there was amazing! I got a huge room with sea view. The food was great, the fruit! Yummy! Delicious, I ate everything and I Never got sick!I was lucky to have Roger as my tour guide, he took me everywhere, made me feel welcome and made sure I got a unique experience of the island. The staff is super friendly the guards (masai) are also very nice and make you feel safe! Well done my blue hotel!

Dear Guest, thank you for your friendly writing.
Breakfast always offers some different selections of English and Continental menus in a large amount.
Everywhere it is normal to find less choice in the last few minutes of the breakfast time, even if the buffet had been regularly replaced.
However it is really good if our guests are able to relax in spite of few minus.
Best regards.

The beach here in Nungwi is more beautiful that your imagination can perceive. Therefore you have to see it. We stayed in the front bungalows (1st floor), which are more expensive, but worth every cent.

Room Tip: front bungalows, 1st floor.
