A great place for a holiday

Location, pool, view

An outdated property with wonderful staff & locale

Staff, locale, pool
Our stay was fine. The rooms need serious updating and cleaning. We were assaulted by a toxic smell upon entering the room. My guess it was the noxious cleaning agents and mosquito repellants used before we arrived. The linen had a faint mildew smell. The buffet restaurant was attacked by hordes of flies. The staff were ever so helpful and apologetic as they explained the influx of flies was due to the rainy season. They did their best with the hand they were dealt, but I was still disgusted by seeing so many flies in, around, and on the food. The pool and fitness equipment - along with the wonderful staff - were saving graces for this place. If they update the property and it isn't rainy season, I'd definitely return.
Vintila G. Groups Romania, February 18, 2015
beach view great, but location is horrible.

pool, beach view, can't find a 3rd good thing...
Really far away from the aorport 1 and half hrs driving, they charge 70$ for pick up. And we had to wait for the room to be ready about 1 h, even though the reservation was made almost 1 month in advance. Not impressed at all... It doesn't look like any othe Hilton I've stayed in before, overrated would be the perfect word. Furniture is old and the pillows smells disgusting, even after changing the cover many times, we just couldn't use it. Staff are pretty slow in everything, some were nice though. They have alot of weird rules like: not allowed to stay on the sand area during night (even thought they have guards patrolling) or if you have a visitor, just to go to the room , the visitor has to pay 50$ ... Wow! Not like you get an extra person staying over...but juat because enters yourroom! Lol Overall, i wouldn't suggest or choose again this place. There are few other hotels nearby that were looking really nice from the beach side, check it out! :)

American resort in African village

- great location, quick service when something need to be fixed, safe
We lengthened our stay coz we liked the easy-going atmosphere. It seemed a hell of a job to keep a hotel running accordingly Western standards. They manage but not enough at the swimmingpool and the roomservice. Their service is not efficiënt (unattractive, slow and with mistakes).

beach, infrastructure around the beach
Fanny A. Couples France, January 20, 2015
A litlle bit disappointed

Location is great , beautiful beach , great staff
Nungwi is the best location in Zanzibar . The private beach is awesome. Food of the hotel could be more improved for Hilton hotel. The rooms are very humids and bed not comfortable at all. The hotel is a bit old some renovations have to be done. The staff is very friendly and helpful

The property is located on the northern most tip of Zanzibar Island and located in the historic traditional fishing village of Nungwi. The village is safe and accessible by a 2 minute walk and located within walking distance is the Fish market where all the fisherman bring their catch of the day. Several natural depressions which fill up with the tides also serve as sanctuaries to the endangered Green Turtle species as they have their breeding grounds on the beaches of Nungwi. Traditional village craft activities such as hair weaving and application of attractive henna tattoos and traditional Arabic designs on hands and legs can be tried out. Local communal transport is available, for a fun ride to and from town and the locals are very friendly. The ride may take 1-2 hours as there are many stops and pickups n the way to town as its 40 miles away. Deep sea fishing diving and scuba diving excursion sites are within a 1.8 mile radius of the hotel beach. Traditional wood craving and boat building activities can also be viewed in the village as this is an age old art.
