We stayed from 7-14 April 2014 at Dongwe. Everything … I mean everything!…was more than we could have wished for. We had the middle room on the top floor (room No.108). The room was very comfortable, spacious cupboard space and kept nice 'n clean. The balcony is large and the sea and beach-view is fantastic! The restaurant provided wholesome meals,...

I went to Dongwe with my wife for our honeymoon. We surely didn't want to leave because the place was worth every dime we spent. From the time we arrived at Dongwe to the time we left, the staff there ensured we were very comfortable and happy. We were warmly received and briefed about the place by receptionist (Anita) who...

Dongwe is small, friendly and relaxed hotel right on the stunning Bwejuu beach on the Indian ocean. It is decorated in a minimalistic way, with natural materials. Our room was perfectly positioned, on the gorund floor, just few steps of the beautiful turquoise water and white coral sandy beach. Staff is very friendly, always ready to help, our manager Samson...

After having spent a week here I can definitely recommend it! After having climbed Kili and endured a roughroad-noshower safari our standards weren't really that high but Dongwe exceeded all of them! Staff was very friendly, food was great - especially breakfast - and the rooms and the view and the hotel itself was just incredible. Be aware that this...

Had a wonderful, relaxing time at Dongwe Ocean View. As a couple with a young child we guiltily left at home with grandparents, what we most wanted was to unwind, and this is the perfect spot: great food, beautiful beach, and friendly staff. But there was also plenty to do, including snorkelling, spice farm, a trip to Stone Town, and...

My husband and I stayed here over Christmas. The honeymoon suite we booked was light and spacious, the bed comfortable and the room was cleaned every day. The view from the balcony was also delightful. The food at the hotel was also surprisingly good, particularly as we are vegetarian. We were expecting limited options, but actually vegetarians were reasonably well...

Lovely hotel, great value for money. We had a large room facing the beach and a great balcony. The pool is always clean, there are lounges around the pool and on the sand below. The dining area/lounge is great, awesome food (buffets for breakfast and dinner, ala carte at lunch). Complimentary tea time and a nice lounge/lobby area with a...
