“Great for families”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This was the perfect place to stay after 3 weeks of roughing it in the bush. It was clean, comfortable and in a great location. Our children really enjoyed it here and never got bored. It's right on the beach, has a pool,on-site water sport rentals and pool/ping pong tables. The food was good most nights. It's a buffet so we were always able to find something the kids would eat. The staff was friendly and helpful and even took us on a tour of the local village.

Stayed July 2012, traveled with family

Nice view, on the beach, and surroundings are very interesting, getting to know the local villagers. Food not that great but you can get other meals within 10 min walk. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Rooms clean, big and comfy. Nice pool area with bar ordering within the pool. Gym equipment good except for cardio equipment, not working. Overall good.

Room Tip: Pool view or sea view, both very good but with the pool view you can still have a view of the beach...

I spent 3 glorious nights at this property from 12-15 October following an 8 night safari. It was the perfect ending to a wonderful vacation. Mr. Godfrey Mahimbo, the front office manager,is a competent dedicated supervisor that was instrumental in making my stay one of the most enjoyable Hilton stays I can remember (and I've spend many a night with Hilton). The room was impeccably clean with a gorgeous beach front ocan view. Wireless was fast, baths were hot and everything (safe, alarm clock, refridgerator) worked great! I was greeted by a bottle of fine South African red wine upon entering the room, a daily fruit plate along with 2 of my favorite local beers per day. I should mention that I am a Hilton Honors Gold member. If you are gold also, this is a property you don't want to miss. The staff here understands how to treat their higher tier guests!!!! I considered staying at Hotel Z, but in retrospect, I am so glad I selected this property. In short, it's a 5 star property at a 3 star price!

Room Tip: Room 226 was magnicificent.

I have been a Tanzanian resident for 6 years and I know the Tanzanian/Zanzibari culture well...I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of service and food here knowing the challenges of running a business in Tanzania. I would highly recommend this hotel --a great beach, good pool, good spa services, quality food and staff that really take pride in their jobs which believe me is HARD to find in Tanzania. Overall would visit again..and will..very relaxing setting and everything is all inclusive so you do not need to leave the compound....

Stayed 2 nights here at the end of our Safari travels. Like a lot of others that have reviewed this hotel it is like a lot of resort hotels and once your in there you would not know if you were in Zanzibar,Fiji or Thailand. (Except for the staff of course)

This place has nice rooms with average shower pressure. Beds are soft and wifi throughout the resort. Buffet meals are ok but due to location maybe not the best food ever cooked. The service is friendly as always but very slow. Theres not much you can do about the speed of service, like 1.5hr for a burger from the pool bar...

The location of the resort is at the tip of the North. The beach is not the best for swimming due to the tides an seaweed so here is my advice:

Stay here if:
You here with family/girlfriend and don't want to leave the resort and just relax.
Stay somewhere else if:
You are traveling with friends and like to mix in with other travelers

We paid $135US per night which compared to some was a bargain.

We spent at Hilton double tree 7 nights after our Tanzania Kilimanjaro and safari vacation.
From the moment we arrived till the day we left the hotel staff/ service was warm and welcoming!
The location and facilities were just what we were looking for.
A large and pretty room with a balcony to the pool and the beach with wonderful sunsets.
Our honeymoon package included breakfast, lunch and dinner all with a wide variety of options, great fresh fish and seafood, vegetables and fruits.
Pool activities were lots of fun (aqua gym, water polo, volleyball), but the most important thing was the peace and quiet!
Great value for money.
Thanks for an unforgettable honeymoon.
