8/10 Very good

Staff: great Room: great Pool: great Food: great Beach: not great at all (you are constantly approached) Walk to beach: not great at all (you are constantly approached). If there could be a way to stop that. Nungwi Beach (and Zanzibar) actually would be a really nice place to visit. We felt harassed and would not recommend Nungwi Beach to anyone. We wanted to stay at the quiet end of Nungwi Beach. We felt we were constantly approached. More on the quite side than on the main beach.

2/10 Poor

Terrible experience. Had booked a 2 night stay ans changed it to 1 night because of how bad it was. First they got our booking wrong and then made us run around to sort it out, with not a single care in the world. Secondly, there was no power for over 12 hours! We were promised a refund and a discount for the first night- However we were charged the full initial amount, for an experience that wasn’t worth even half the price. Extremely disappointed.

10/10 Exceptional

The accommodation is excellent, if you want something cozy and private. The conditions were very good, if you take into account the location. There were some small flaws here and there, but they were all minor. The biggest downsite is the fact that it's not on the beach but 2 minutes away from one. For us this was more than acceptable
