Awful experience!! My colleagues and i stayed here and the experience was terrible!! We checked in at night and by the time we were having breakfast the following day we had all decided to relocate to another hotel. I would not recommend it for business travelers. Also nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to food

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I spent 6 wonderful days in this fabulous hotel resort. It is along the coast next to a few other famous hotels, but unlike Smiles hotel or Flame cottages, Double tree is really standing out as more chilled and upmarket hotel resort. The place is like a paradise in the middle of the tropical island, the rooms are spacious, all...

Restaurants were ok. Beach was a let down. The tide goes out in the morning and comes around 3pm. So you have an hour to enjoy the sea before the strong tides come in and crash by the rocked fence. The water is cold - but if it's a pool holiday with nothing to do then this would be good!

After visiting Pingwe and Jambiani, Nungwi was a bit of a disappointment, especially the "beach' area which is not really a beach compared to other places on the island. In addition, the room we booked (ocean view) did not resemble the one shown in the photograph on booking.com. However, the service was good and despite the 'mass catering feel', the...

I booked feeling elated and of course what could go wrong since I booked as I normally do with Pentravel. Before leaving, the stories came, and my elation became one of a tad bit anxious .... for absolutely no reason. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I think perhaps coming from SA the poverty of the Island...
