Lovely hotel with fantastic staff, good food, very good bed and nice surroundings. It is quite remote - most sights and airport is 1,5 hours drive away. The beach beautiful but not good for swimming at low tide or if it is windy at high tide. But then you can use the nice

We had some concerns about coming to Zanzibar, an island not well known about in The States. We chose Nungwi because it is listed as one of the best beaches. A high season 11- night-stay limited our budget to a 4 star and we wanted the known quantify of an American standard

My wife and I stayed in the delightful Double Tree for 10 days in February after we had already spent three days in Stonetown. On our first day, we instinctively felt that we really had found a gem, and little we experienced over the next week and a half did anything to dilute

The Nungwi Beach is extremely beautiful! Watch out when swimming barefoot in the ocean, you can easily get a bad sting from back needle-like sea urchins so pack your aqua shoes (also sold at the Double tree Hilton tourist store) The rooms were lovely,beds were really comfortable

Me and my friend we stayed at doubletree 5 nights. Unfortunately we had an inconvenience when we checked in because our room had plumbing issues and they transferred us to Royal Zanzibar ( more luxury’s) for the first night. We are really disappointed but the front office

We did not take the inclusive plan but i did notice that they had spaghetti a good selection of breads and vegetables and rice at every meal. The omelette man( if you eat eggs) is great. There are a lot of indian dishes available. Carrots zucchini and mixed vegetables and beans are very popular here Tomatoes and fresh friuts are easily available- lettuce of any kind are more rare( since the hot weather and water can not support them.Sweet potatoes are a biggy here

Hi there are lots of lounge chairs facing the beach. They have Built a sea wall because certain times of the day the tide is quite high and the waves crash against the wall. When the tide is out the “ beach boys” will be down below the sea wall. Your beach lounge chairs are at the top of wall looking out to the sea. It’s a great vantage point to watch the sea and the village activity as the local people fish, gather oysters and octopus while the tide is out. You can go down the steps and swim and yes you run the gauntlet of young men trying to earn a living. They are all charming and you can just politely say no. It takes a few minutes but once you are in the sea no one bothers you and no bothers you in your lounge chairs. In fact it’s quite safe at the lounge chairs you can leave your belongings and go for lunch or a swim there is always a guard on the sea wall to make sure you feel safe and comfortable

many shops, restaurants are along the beach 10-15 min from the hotel. For restaurant go for Langi Langi or Baraka. For activities again many sellers on the beach. If you can do diving, it was pretty good.
