Fabulous 8.6 From 59 reviews

Very good 8.0
This is a 3 star hotel with old, stained towels and the rug in the room really needed to be replaced. The price was exorbitant, the food lacked variety, the pool lacked adequate lounges and you could not swim in the ocean there.

Very good 8.0
The staff at the hotel are very accommodating aLways willing to go the extra mile to ensure great service. Hotel s quiet and peaceful away from the hustle of the main village but enough If you want to go there.Pool is adequate and overlooks the ocean for great views. The hotel sits on the beach , but tye beach and ocean itself is not the best beach in Nungwi for swimming. The Nungwi main beach is a quick taxi drive away however and for me was not an issue.Food at the mantis was good and i found it reasonably priced, and the hotel has some themed nights for dinner with live entertainment. The only issue with food was with breakfast with the chefs not quite getting easy over eggs correct but the breakfast was enjoyable.

Poor 2.0
Stay Away: Unprofessional Staff, Mediocre Rooms
I chose this place b/c of the good great reviews. So let's start with the good. The views here are really beautiful. The only thing I liked about this hotel was pool area and looking out at the beach. Here is the truth, even though they say that it is on the beach, you really can't swim. The beach is all rocks that you have to walk across it to get to the water. Also, beware of urchins. That was something everyone told us to be mindful of on the beach. The staff was TERRIBLE. I mean beyond unprofessional. The front desk lady was so shady and she also scammed us our first night. We were looking for a taxi, she said she could call one for us & tried to get us to pay 60 USD to go ten minutes round trip. Since it was our first night, we declined and paid one way for 30 USD. We know she was a scammer b/c the rest of the week, when we asked other staff to order a taxi it was 10USD. The entire staff was unorganized and frankly pretty clueless. The breakfast was bland. You had the same food every morning. There were flies all over the pastry section and the staff never made an effort to cover it. To be on the safe side, I ordered omelettes since they were made to order and was not just sitting out. Do yourself a favor & stay at the Z hotel or Doubletree or somewhere in that area on swim-able beach. We took taxi every time we wanted to go to the beach. I don't know what their rooms are like at those hotels but we enjoyed the beach in that area & you can actually swim there.

Stunning and quiet
Beautiful hotel in a quiet, stunning location. The infinity pool overlooks the private beach which is amazing! The only thing we didn’t like was the dining could’ve been located in a nicer, more picturesque part of the hotel or at least decorated in a more aesthetic manner..however overall the place was beautiful and the staff were very helpful and accommodating! It’s a little bit away from the main area of Nungwi however the hotel can organize a taxi or even a boat(which we did!) to Nungwi or even Kendwa!

Good 6.0
Very mixed bag. Friendly and attentive service from some staff, others seemed to be going though the motions. Rooms are spacious and quiet, but it's too far from the bars and restaurants to walk, so bear this in mind. PS airport transfers booked through the hotel are very expensive.
