“Brilliant deal and a thoroughly enjoyed stay!”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

We travelled to DoubleTree in August 2013. We stayed for 6 nights and had a wonderful stay. We were warmly welcomed at the reception by the lovely staff whom promptly brought us delightful beverages. We were then shown to our room; we had a balcony with a sea view and the room really was lovely and well equipt with the extras which really showed how professional everything was. The pool was very clean and well maintained and the pool bar was also lovely (although there were a fair few flies although I guess that can't be helped?!) The beach was absolutely gorgeous, I don't understand how anyone can even dream of faulting it?! All of the beach guards were friendly and chatty, I even enjoyed having conversations with the beach sellers as they too were lovely people. Infact, all of the staff were extremely professional and polite, I enjoyed trying out my Swahili with them! The food was lovely every day with a great variety and the also had a wonderful BBQ and fish grill which was absolutely exquisite.

My only problem was that our room had rather bad damp which was exaggerated by the amount of water left after the cleaners had mopped, although this was sufferable to stay in such a wonderful place.

Modern, clean room with two king sized beds and a large bathroom. Fresh flowers a nice touch. Lovely pool and gardens. Staff were pleasant and friendly.
Felt safe, security around the grounds. Full breakfast buffet with lots of choices.

Everything worked and was clean and neat. The staff were courteous and friendly. The Swedish Massage was exceptionally good. Maryam looked after all 4 in our group. The beach area was patrolled by security to minimise intrusion by beach hawkers. The latter are colourful characters but rather wearisome in their insistence.

A holiday in Zanzibar was not on my bucket list. It just happened. The location is fantastic because the beach seems private. Not as in the other places that are 15 minutes walk away from this location that seemed crowded and commercialized. We liked best the personal service from the staff. Although the hotel was fully booked, I noticed staff enjoy a caring and friendly relationship with all guests. Food was well prepared. Caters for all palates. Executive chef, Mayur is so friendly and accommodating. He prepared a mouth watering dish with the fish we purchased. What I liked least was the water problems. Flow of water in shower. There seems to be a general problem with plumbing. Despite this we had an awesome holiday. A great vibe prevails and where one can interact with and experience local culture. Free wi-fi was a bonus. It was easy to keep in contact with family/ friends by sending photos.

Room Tip: Personally I loved the room that we were in as it was a building that had 4 units. Spectacular view...

Dear prem158,

thank you very much for the great review and taking the time to share your experience.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Most probably the problem with the water
pressure was caused when all guests are showering at the same time.
Regards from Chef Mayur!!!
Hopefully we can welcome you again!!

The best part is the area between the beach and the pool. I would find myself a shady spot and spend the whole day swimming, lying about, watching the local do what they have been doing for centuries catching fish in the sea, surfing the net, reading, eating, drinking....... Its idyllic. The rooms are great, the food is great, the service great. I will go back.

My partner and I stayed at this property after a 3 week safari. Staff were excellent, pool amazing, room was way better than could ever be expected. Only small comment was that a shower curtain could be added to the shower so that water does not leak into the rest of the bath room. Staff were amazing! Lady that cleaned the room spread an incredible display of flowers on the bed each day. Room was clean and absolutely perfect. Room looked over the sea, was quiet, had most incredible view of the sunset and sunrise. Property right on the beach! Tide is extreme but perfect swim while tide is in.

This hotel is located on an excellent stretch of beach and is a typical, though quite nice, four star chain hotel. The Doubletree has wonderful service and the rooms are very nice. However, the food isn't great, but there are plenty of great dining options withing walking distance from the hotel; up or down the beach.
