    The Double Tree was an amazing experience for my wife and I. The staff was simply amazing, they made sure to meet and exceed all of our expectations. The pictures online does this place no justice because this place is a paradise. The customer service is the best I have ever experienced in all my travels around the world. I will definitely be back to Zanzibar and when I go back my accommodation will be the Double Tree by Hilton in Nungwi!!!

    Overall a nice property but not for me - it's well suited for your classic baby boomers about to head off to safari, not younger travelers. I also was annoyed at how expensive the meals & drinks were - they are 2X to 3X more than you'd pay in the posh neighborhoods in Dar. I didn't sign up for the all-inclusive and it was impossible to pay for breakfast ala carte - it's not an option - you have to walk down the beach to another hotel.

    Beautiful Beach Hotel

    Beautiful beach. One of the best hotels at Nungwi. Food was excellent with rotating dinner themes. The staff there helped us celebrate our 15 year anniversary, very thoughtful and kind. Would recommend this hotel.

    The magnificent Double Tree Hilton at Zanzibar Nun

    We had checked out several other places before we narrowed down to Double Tree Hilton at Nungwi. The right word to say is that it was fabulous. The ambience, the property, the facilities are all like many other resorts we have stayed at as a couple. But the most outstanding part was the treatment we got from the staff. It was evident they were putting a real extra effort to ensure we were happy and comfortable. Starting from the Reception staff, the staff at restaurant, Dolphin Bar, Sunset Bar, the cleaning staff and the customer relations team everyone were top notch. This is what made the stay special. All promised of hotel pickup drop etc was prompt. On the day of departure, since we were doing an early check out we were given individual packs of breakfast for our journey. It was a very pleasant stay. Would recommend to anyone flying to Zanzibar for a retreat..the stay at Double tree will make Zanzibar which by itself is a wonderful country Spectacular....
