Very comfortable rooms, almost sea views if it was not for the lush palm trees. Good, but small, Gym, good seating around the pool, with sea views. Wifi worked well and breakfasts were more than adequate with a wide range for all tastes. Good service once more. Good location near Slipway for more restaurant options, supermarket and craft shops.

We have been to Double Tree many times and have always had great service and friendly smiles from everyone. Greeting us like long lost friends. The manager always remembers we are here to visit our daughter in Iringa and asks after the grandchildren. This is something you don't get everywhere and makes us feel special. I personally love the cookie...

The hotel does not have clear signage from Ali Hassan Mwnyi Sreet so I could a bit of difficulty in locating it. There is a need to provide enough beach beds even for non swimmers. The gym also needs to be expanded
