We had booked a 6 nights stay at Amaan Bungalows after climbing Kilimanjaro and doing a Safari like so many before us. The drive to the hotell from the Airport was nice but when we got closer to Nungwi it was pretty much horrible. Litter everywhere, especially plastic bags etc. This changed when we entered the hotell part of Nungwi and after that no complaints on my part on the cleaning. But I do feel sorry for the locals having to live with that much litter probably caused by tourist.
The hotell it self was low key and very relaxing, something that we were very much looking forward to. It had its own little shop aswell as a massage place. There are several restaurants lining the entire beach so i would really recommend going to different places every night since the food at the hotells own restaurant was not really anything to brag about.
We had booked both a deluxe room and a sea view room and I must say that the sea view room was really worth it! It felt a lot brighter and cleaner than the deluxe rooms and the fact that you woke up with the sounds of waves crashing righ outside your door and the view of the Indian Ocean sparkling through the windows is hard to beat. Remember that you have to give in your key to have it cleaned everyday!
So to sum things up, we had a great time in Zanzibar and Amaan Bungalows did nothing to spoil that stay. If you are looking for a resort then you will probably have luck looking somewhere else, but if you are looking for a decent hotell right on the beach close to everything in Nungwi then Amaan is it.
Btw, there is a outdoor bar not far away if you want to go out and have a drink. And it is in decent distance so that they don't keep you up at night if you want to relax.
