8/10 Very Good

Comfortable for a short stay
Great little backpackers. The private room is small but adequate and the ensuite an added plus. Hosts are kind and very helpful and the beach just a 3 min walk away.

2/10 Poor

Absolut nicht zu empfehlen. Man fühlt sich von der ersten Sekunde an nicht wohl. Die Zimmer erinnern an Gefängniszellen, die Ausstattung ist miserabel, Moskitonetze sind zu klein oder kaputt, die Klimaanlage kostet extra, die Zustellbetten sind Strandliegen auf den man defintiv nicht gesund schlafen kann. Der naheliegende Strand ist zwar schön, aber KOMPLETT leer, es gibt in der nahen Umgebung weder Läden oder Strände.

Abbiamo soggiornato a zanzibar dream lodge a natale,quindi nella calda estate zanzibarina.abbiamo occupato una camera doppia ed una tripla con bagno privato. la struttura si compone di una parte comune-reception, ristorante con bellissima terrazza, e casa dei proprietari-e di una vera e propria casa a parte dove sono le transfert dall'aeroporto è stato puntuale e cibo è davvero OTTIMO ed i prezzi onesti.maria luisa è stata molto gentile nell'organizzazione di 2 giorni a nungwi e nel proporci un cenone di natale eccezionale. purtroppo abbiamo usufruito solo di 4 notti sulle 11 prenotate perché la totale mancanza di areazione nelle camere,che pure sono dotate di rumorose pale,e l'assenza di aria condizionata,hanno fatto si che fosse per noi impossibile temperatura infatti era ingestibile soprattutto nella doppia nonostante i ventilatori aggiuntivi fornitici la seconda siamo visti costretti,avendo 2bambini piccoli,a pernottare in altre strutture di cui una senza a/c e abbiamo potuto riposare grazie a migliori condizioni di circolo d'aria.le camere sono esposte al sole tutto il giorno ed essendo circondate da altre abitazioni non riescono a beneficiare del vento marino presente tutto il giorno e dell'abbassamento notturno della è stata proposta un'altra camera ma comunque sempre senza aria condizionata,e solo l'ultimo giorno una con a/c con pagamento di sovrapprezzo.

The breakfast is Health ; Coffee, tea, eggs, some bread, sometimes chapati, sometimes pancakes, fresh fruits for sur, toast With marmelade/ butter.
