4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location, pool, room and staff were excellent. the food was very average. The evening entertainment they advertised was non-existent. as was the day time activities that were advertised. When I queried this the front desk answered that they were only half full so they did not bother. Maybe they should change their write up to say that they will only provide what they advertise when they feel like it.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. We were very happy with the excellent service, nice clean rooms, fun pool scene and proximity to activities such as parasailing. The pool was a good mix of upbeat activity without being too intrusive, all just a stone's throw from the beach. The food in the dining area was good and plentiful, and the staff offered superb service. I would recommend this hotel.

The location is superb with almost all rooms having a view of the sea from the balcony. There is a good variety of food... we stayed for 11 nights and enjoyed every meal. The Staff are so friendly and helpful. Rooms are great, air con and fans keep you cool at night and rooms are clean. Over all this is a fantastic place... only bad element is the tears when you leave.

This resort provided comfort in a beautiful location on the northern tip of Zanzibar. The rooms were comfortable and our 3rd floor room had a wonderful view of the pool and ocean. The beach itself is not the best for swimming, but it is great for watching local life. Pool was very clean and staff are friendly and accommodating. Location is great as it is close to village and many restaurants. The main onsite restaurant only offers a one price option (pricey), which we did not use except for breakfast. The specialty restaurant, Fisherman's Grill, had excellent seafood. Overall, a great option for a relaxing vacation.

Beautiful hotel, incredible location and exceptional staff. Everybody was extremely kind and helpful and were always happy to accommodate our every need. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and impeccable, and they are sprayed every night to make sure they stay mosquito-free. I strongly recommend to take an ocean front room...the view is unique. The cocktails at the swimming pool bar are made to perfection and the restaurant offers a good variety of food and live shows. You won't find a better place to enjoy a nice dinner. My husband and I booked a candlelight dinner at the beach and it was just wonderful! Special thanks to Anatolia and the manager, George, who took the time to sit down with us and go over the menu so that we could adapt it to our taste. George and the chef himself stopped by at the end of our dinner to make sure we were satisfied and happy. They even sent us a little cake since we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. They really gave us a beautiful night and an overall lovely stay.

It was warm well come by staff and timely services made our stay grate, comfortable rooms. location of the hotel is out standing. the location of the pool near the beach make the scene lively. food was nice

I was not impressed at all! I traveled for vacation and my experience did not meet my expectations. Also, I read so many nice reviews about their staff being nice on Trip Advisor but was disappointed to find out that does not apply to everyone. If you are an African, woman, traveling solo, good luck with all the biases you will encounter! I paid my own good money to be treat less and was not a fun experience.

Visited the hotel with friends and had a very pleasant stay. The location and setting are great. Definitely not your usual Hilton standards , but pretty amazing for Africa. The only thing I didn't like was that the walls were damp, but the beach and service compensated.

Truly amazing 8 nights in Double Tree ! All Staff is very welcoming and very helpfull. Nice size swimming pool, very clean. Beach is just amazing ! White sand, turquise water. Ocean view from our room was just breathtaking.. Really recommend this hotel. ! Hotel Restaurants with good choice of different cuisines. I wish we could stay a bit longer in Paradise..

The hotel is right located at the beach. They have great rooms with ocean view. A pool bar is well located just at the middle of the hotel with long list of well prepared cocktails (make sure you don't miss happy hour) . Very friendly staff from the reception to the restaurant. They have a small spa but they offer a good spa menu.
