Hotel's Favourite
I came here for my 40th birthday trip after a long time of no international travel, so wasn't sure what to expect. Regarding cleanliness, this hotel went above and beyond to ensure all areas were cleaned...felt totally safe! As a diamond member I was upgraded to a nice room right on the beach. Huge walk-in shower, comfy bed and linens, and the A/C worked perfectly. The food was exceptional! From breakfast, it was nice to see the staff enforcing guests to use gloves when using the buffet....great selection of foods and a changing menu every day. Had dinner at Fisherman's Grill the first night...ended up going back a few more nights it was so good. The service was top-notch and the employees were very friendly. The area of Nungwi was really cool and everything was walking distance. It was nice to stroll out of my room to the beach and go for a walk....there are a lot of hustlers on the beach, but they are contained there. The resort had security around the clock to make sure non-guests were not coming up to sell to the people on the lounge chairs. But if you want a fresh coconut, souvenir, massage, etc....simply walk down and anything is yours. My wife took advantage of a massage package....great value. She never wanted to leave! And I spent my time at the beach bar and pool bar....the entire bartender crew were fantastic!!!

I stayed at Double Tree by Hilton Zanzibar - Nungwi for 2 weeks in November 2021. Myself & my friend had half board (breakfast & dinner) and arrived at the Hotel in the morning prior to check in. We had breakfast in the Hotel and was charged $20 dollar each for this. I spoke to management and staff at reception, however they refused to waiver the fee, which they could have done if there were being reasonable. The room had one double bed and on arrival requested two beds, however there were no rooms with two beds available. We were offered a single bed in the room which would cost $200, however a week into the holiday we were given the bed for free which I was grateful for. Food was not up to scratch 70% of the time, and would describe it as being edible. Cocktails weren’t that nice either so best to stick to wine or beer. The room was not cleaned properly, on two occasions the cleaners removed the clean towels and forgot to replace them. What is of more concerning is that fact that on these occasions the cleaner left our room door open x 2. Thankfully nothing was taken. I complained to reception and all I was told was ‘sorry’, I doubt they did any investigation to see what cleaner was responsible or take any action. The swimming pool had a thick ring of grease around it, and if you touched it your hands get sticky. Another guest complained about it and this was cleaned by staff. Most of the staff were helpful and friendly especially James (restaurant in the evening) and Halima. The Hotel in a good location and is on the beach front, there are local shops, restaurants, bars, clubs etc within walking distance. At the Hotel and beach you can wear what you want, however due to local customs and traditions you will be expected to wear moderate clothing especially if you are going into town. Zanzibar is a lovely island and would definitely visit again.

We had five lovely days at this resort. Although the buffe food might not be top-notch, it is still worth paying for all-inclusive. We always found some tasty food in the end. Staff is fantastic. They will do anything for you. All the guys working at the beach bar are worth a special mentioning with their professional behaviour, serving drinks with a smile everytime. Plenty of sunbeds to choose from right at the beach. Will definately return to this place.
