My partner and I are both Hilton Gold members and we were welcomed by the hotel manager and offered an upgrade - a beautiful room with ocean view + wine bottle and fruit salad. The VIP treatment continued: they solved three problems for us in a matters of minutes: brought us a painkiller as I had a terrible head pain,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I spent 6 wonderful days in this fabulous hotel resort. It is along the coast next to a few other famous hotels, but unlike Smiles hotel or Flame cottages, Double tree is really standing out as more chilled and upmarket hotel resort. The place is like a paradise in the middle of the tropical island, the rooms are spacious, all...

Double Tree by Hilton is a pretty decent hotel. Our room was located on the ground floor at the back. The hotel was empty and we asked for a sea view, but we didn't get it. The drive to the hotel is a good 1 hr 20 min or a fairly good single lane road. Once you come of the...

Extremely picturesque hotel at great location, near bars and restaurants along the beach side. The Hilton pool offered fantastic tanning next to a strategically located pool bar. The hotel is just next to the seaside, which makes it easy to go in for a swim when the tide is high. Restaurant food was pretty good, but on the expensive side....

We are two couples , who stayed in the hotel for three nights during our vacation in zanzibar . The distance from the major island's attractions ( about a hour ) is really compensated by the great nungwi beaches and the excellent hotel .

Awful experience!! My colleagues and i stayed here and the experience was terrible!! We checked in at night and by the time we were having breakfast the following day we had all decided to relocate to another hotel. I would not recommend it for business travelers. Also nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to food

Restaurants were ok. Beach was a let down. The tide goes out in the morning and comes around 3pm. So you have an hour to enjoy the sea before the strong tides come in and crash by the rocked fence. The water is cold - but if it's a pool holiday with nothing to do then this would be good!
