The location is spot on. Right on the Beach with the most spectacular sunset. The rooms ok and clean enough but need some maintenance - especially the bathrooms. Rooms are cleaned everyday and clean towels are provided.

Food ok, place avg.
Was in Friday party, only one more turist, but was ok to meet local friends I made by that time....
suddenly while we are at the bar, one staff started, out of the blue, to insult me and talking macho to me. A pimp up guy, unknown to me, who starts shouting bad words and insulting...
Disgusting narcisistic angry barman....no comment...

Waited 1 1/2 hours for lunch for 4 and it was less than mediocre.  We all ordered chicken dishes which arrived with hardly any chicken between them and what there was was not cooked well at all. One of the party actually found their chicken burger inedible. The rest of the food was very underwhelming especially for the price. There are so many superior places to eat which are cheaper and much better value

Bed, toilet, shower, wifi. No bottled water, no little soaps. But you're not in Zanzibar to hang out in your room, and the location is unbeatable, right on the perfect white sand beach. $50/night with breakfast is a bargain for Nungwi, so you can save your money for the fun stuff. Owner Salima is very welcoming, responsive on email, and happy to help you with arrangements for transportation or anything else you need.

Areas for improvement: my towels were streaked with rust and someone else's lipstick. I spent my first 20 minutes there in a cage match killing all the mosquitoes over the bed since housekeeping left the mosquito net up. (Fortunately they are fat and slow.) The hotel only takes cash, and there are no ATMs closer than Stone Town. Getting to sleep before 2am on Friday nights is not possible with dance music turned up to 11, so plan a nap for Saturday afternoon.

If you want to be pampered check out the Z Hotel next door, which is lovely and 5x the price. If you just need a place to crash while you enjoy the beach, the Nungwi Inn has you covered.

I have been there several times (only in the restaurant, never stayed in the bungalows). It's pretty located at a lively beach with amazing views for the sunset. There is one man working there which is sooo nice. The only one, as the others are not as friendly. Service is too slow. Even if you ask for a bottle of water it takes ages to come. Toilets need improvement in cleanliness. Friday nights' parties are good though, you can find nice music and great ambience.
