Stayed at the Union Beach Bungalows and it was wonderful! Had a room on the beach within earshot of the ocean waves. The room had mosquito nets, a ceiling fan and was quaint, clean and spacious with a small porch to sit and enjoy the scenery. The cost includes breakfast which consisted of fresh seasonal fruit, coffee and a cooked... More

It was ok but the room I had was right on the beach (shouldn't complain) open the door and hey it's right in fron of you. however because of that I didn't feel secure. There were guys hanging around a stone throw away all day and people can see in every time you open the door. Maybe the other rooms... More

I stayed at the union beach bungalow to escape the hustle and bustle of Stonetown. I wasn't looking for anything extravagant, just a clean place that I can lay my head down for a night as I only planned on relaxing by the beach. Upon initial inspection all appeared well with two single beds, mosquito nets, air conditioning, and clean... More

This place is zero frills but the price is right and , moreso, I havent found a place that is truly that much beachfront. If you get the rooms right upfront you are very close to the water. No long treks or impeded views. Isn't much to entertain yourself here so as long as you are comfy with walks and... More

Very quiet resort, probably not ideal for families with young children as there is not much entertainment for them and not ideal for party chasers either. Nice food at the restaurant and other places to eat a short walk down the beach. Decent sized rooms, not luxurious to any stretch of the imagination, but by far nice enough for a... More

I stayed two nights with two friends at Union Beach Bungalow. We hadn't booked anything in Nungwi, and as we were budget travellers, we chose Union for its good price ($45 per night). But we soon started to regret we hadn't spent a bit more on a better place, because the room was far from decent standards. There were two... More

Stayed here fore one night - quite enough. Although its located with beach-frontage its not to recomend. I think were were given one of the worst rooms in the hotel. Were not given any bed-sheets and towels (we are no demanding persons but to pay and sleep at a hotel you could at least have bedsheets there). Finally we were... More

The friendliest owners of nungwi! we just stayed there for 8 nights and although we hadn't booked we managed to find a room on the spot and for a very cheap price also.

We booked this place last minute because they had openings. They were a little more pricey then some of the other hostels we stayed in. I have to say the beds and linens were clean. The bathroom had a broken toilet seat on the floor, scolding hot water, and a sink that had no faucet. I know beach bungalows are... More

Me and my partner stayed here over the new year period and were very disappointed. We booked ahead for a room on the beach front but when we arrived we were taken to a room out the back (through a building site) and told this was the only room left; after arguing we were given a small discount, So, the...
