Beautiful gardens, beautiful beaches, great food, varied entertainment..... Good service from all except the management team which at the time was a French couple. The local staff members were all 100%. Had a really good time. Rooms are spacious and airy and very clean....highly recommended... Jambo & Asante sana

This Hilton is incredible! The pool is beautiful, and the hotel is right on the beach and has a private beach so that the locals trying to sell you tours and items don't bother you. But most importantly the Staff was INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!! First, we were greeted warmly by Stanislaus, the Champion (assistant manager) and he arranged and helped us in... More

This was our first time to Zanzibar. We trawled online to find a hotel in a good location and read that Nungwi was a great place to be on top of having one of the best beaches in Zanzibar. It really did not disappoint. Once we had booked our trip we spent a lot of time looking online investigating visas... More

Visited in late September for a week and we had an amazing and relaxing week. On arrival we were greeted at the front desk by very helpful staff and given a welcome drink and warm cookie - much needed after our long journey!

This is the second time my husband and I stayed at the hotel! Again, I only have praise for the friendly staff, the wonderful food, great location.

It is the second time I've stayed at the DoubleTree in Nungwi. Like the first time, it was a great stay. The rooms are very nice and spacious and even though we had a pool view room, we still had a great view of the beach. The food was this time better than my first visit. There were great choices...

After 3 weeks on the go with safaris and trekking we wanted some R&R and stayed here for 2 nights. We wish we had stayed longer.
