Visiting all points of Zanzibar

We stayed at the Doubletree in Stonetown. The hotel was 4 stars! We ventured to the Doubletree at Nungwi and was really disappointed. The entire staff was focused on the "all inclusive" package. The buffets were bad. The drink service offered under the all inclusive was OK if you like beer and box wine. After refusing to eat another bad buffet, I requested to pay for my meal al la carte and was told the kitchen was closed at 11 am. After much complaining i was offered a sandwich. We left....

Relaxing after Gorilla Trekking

Staff absolutely GREAT!!!! Overall we had a wonderful time simply relaxing after gorilla trekking in Rwanda. The food was a bit disappointing though, but the location was great and we were able to walk off grounds to try other restaurants.

Keep an eye on your shoes!

The hotel is beautifully situated and clean. Good welcoming tea and hot cookies. Rooms looks good with fresh flowers on the bed. Decoration in room is lovely. We were put in a room that had  just been varnished and the smell was strong and dangerous. We got a different room the next day but I noticed that our old room was rented eventhough the hotel was far from full. On our first night we were awakened on 3 occasions in the middle of the night by a very loud motor noise , We were first told that we should not hear that noise because the compressor was far from our room...in the morning we found out that it was a truck filling up the water tanks.  We got up early to walk on the beautiful beach and left our sandals near the gards( 2) when we came back they had mysteriously disappeared ... One pair came back but the leather sandals never were seen again...so one of us that has difficult feet was shooless on the north part on Zanzibar. The higher management tried their best to resolve the mistery but the other staff seemed to think it was funny. Too bad for us as we had to spend a lot of our short 3 day anniversary vacation talking to the front desk and managers about our hotel problems...

Great location, poor services

The location and the rooms at the DoubleTree were great - right on the beach and room were comfortable and clean. However, the staff and services were much to be desired. There was no ice anywhere on the premises so drinks were lukewarm at best, food was medicore and took hours (literally hours) to arrive - without utensils, napkins, glasses, etc. which took additional time. Hard-boiled eggs were almost raw, there was no running water one evening, and the taxi we reserved for the airport the night before was never reserved so we were almost an hour late getting to the airport. I think the real problem is the overall management and lack of supervision. We discussed all of these problems with 2 different managers who showed little interest or concern. It is fine if you just want a nice room, but I expected more from a Hilton property.

Great place to stay!

I really enjoyed the hotel and the location. Just a note to first timers to Zanzibar: this hotel is approx. 1hour by car from Stonetown. This means that if you are planning to stay only for 1-2 nights, it might not be worth the travel. This hotel is located in front of a beautiful white sand, light blue water beach. Great for couples and people who want to relax. Very close by there are a few small restaurants and bars. Breakfast is very good. I had a great experience. The rooms are very comfy and with free internet. The fitness center didn't impress me, but is okay.

Manduka restaurant (Spanish). Very close to other bars. I Think that the nightlife of that area is right there.
