    Gorgeous pool and beach

    - Lovely setting - good sized room - good service - Beautiful beach and pool - you have the best of both worlds - nice spot to walk out on the reef and watch the local women and children collecting things - the village walk was lovely - Great selection of food at buffet Things needing attention and spoil what would be a perfect location: - The overpowering smell of mold when you walk into the room from the airconditioning - need to be thoroughly cleaned far more often (every couple of months) - more mold on the mattresses by pool and beach - they need to be cleaned and dried and stored properly or replaced - the local string sun beds by the beach are saggy and uncomfortable; I like supporting local-made furniture, but these aren't great - I'd love to see the rooms with some colour added - some lovely local cushions would be nice like in reception - another small thing, but it's disappointing to see paint splatters on the gorgeous locally-made handcrafted furniture in the rooms - floors in the room are mopped with rubbish mops and dirt and fibers all over the floor

  • 2.0.Poor

    This hotel leaves a lot to be desired. It was probably the best hotel on the strip in the 70s but now it is badly in need of an upgrade. The sheets and towels are obviously old and need to be replaced. There is wood paneling all over the rooms that absorbs moisture (it rains a lot in this tropical destination) and has caused mold throughout the rooms. Their covid policy seems to be so exaggerated that the food here was the worst I've had on the island. The one saving grace is that the staff is absolutely amazing. They really try their best but they can't turn water into wine. I would never stay here again.

    The Double Tree was an amazing experience for my wife and I. The staff was simply amazing, they made sure to meet and exceed all of our expectations. The pictures online does this place no justice because this place is a paradise. The customer service is the best I have ever experienced in all my travels around the world. I will definitely be back to Zanzibar and when I go back my accommodation will be the Double Tree by Hilton in Nungwi!!!

    Recent stay

    Great location and service but interior is a bit dated and could do with a revamp. Ideal for direct access onto the beach. The drive up to lthe gates of the hotel is disappointingly bad and this needs to be addressed. Breakfasts were 7/10 with the fruit and egg stations scoring best. Pity that the juices are not pure. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
