Dongwe Ocean View is a great place to stay. We had a warm welcome from the nice staff. We got a honeymoon suite with ocean view. Indeed the view was great and the room itself clean and air-conditioned. The pool looks out on the sea and the withe sanded beach. The food is good but gets a bit boring after... More

After 3 weeks in Tanzania our last place to stay was Dongwe Ocean View. Perfect! Great staff and great place. Besides the location a special thanks to all the staff. I had an accident at the beach and had to visit the hospital. The staff arranged everything and they took good care of me. Even with this problem I had... More

We stayed at the Dongwe Ocean View after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. It was the perfect end for a remarkable trip. Our goal was to relax, relax, relax. We achieved that and more. All the staff here treat you like royalty and go out of their way to make your stay a pleasure. Every room is ocean view. Looking out over... More

compared to other places we left in Zanzibar because of insufficient standards (Double Tree) we had a very good time and incredible service here at Dongwe Ocean View by Anita and the staff. Very nice facilities, perks, support and great location

Me and my family stayed at Dongwe for 3 nights, and for a family at vacation this hotel was wonderful! The staff did everything to make the guests feel welcome and they did happily fix any kinds of problems. The area with the pool and the beach is just as the photos. It's heaven on earth. And the food is... More

I stayed at Dongwe Ocean View for 5 nights with a friend. The hotel was lovely and quiet - more suited to couples and friends although there were a few large families staying whilst we were there. The rooms are very spacious and clean, all with balconies overlooking for pool and ocean (great for morning sunrises). The pool area was... More

The hotel is lovely and quiet with only a small number of rooms surrounding the swimming pool and overlooking the beach. The service was amazing at this hotel, the staff remembered your room and you had your own table at meals. They were all so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The hotel is right on a white sandy... More

We stayed here for one week. There is nothing wrong with this place, its quiet, relaxed, decent food and the staff is nice. Clean, good AC. Internet is slow but that is common in Tanzania in general. We had breakfast and dinner included. So why only 4 stars? Well, the place is a little off. There is little to nothing... More

Nice hotel, but services :(( The trash can was plenty when we arrived in our room. Bad smell in the room. Staff nice but bad responsiveness. No soap in the room. We had to ask for new towels. Very isolated hotel. Nice for those who want tranquility, but no activities.

Spectacular views. Great location. Comfortable rooms. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful swimming pool. Some of the areas a bit dated. Very limited choices for breakfast, with the same options being repeated every day. 😔
