We landed up at Dongwe Vacanze Club by default. We hired a car and decided to "walk in" our way around the island. On the east coast mid Dec is apparently a quiet time so so many of the lodges were empty and felt deserted. Also, the quality vs price was ridiculous. Perhaps because this was essentially peak season. Anyhow,...

We stayed at Dongwe club for 8 days and everything was fantastic. The service is excellent, the staff speaks English and Italian very well. The beach is beautiful and there is a very nice jetty, with sun beds, a bar and a restaurant at night.My children enjoyed swimming in the pool and walking on the reef at low tide. The...

This club vacanze hotel is as luxurious and comfortable as one can imagine. It sits on a perfect dream-like beach, in a slightly more isolated area than the rather busy Kiwengwa or Nungwi. There is not much to say about the facilities, which were close to perfection, from the swimming pool to the tennis courts and the restaurants. As a...

I am a resident in Zanzibar, living in Stone Town. When I have time for a break I often go to Club Vacanze to relax and enjoy the Italian hospitality provided by this luxury hotel. They have an amazing jetty and a super chef. I strongly reccommend this hotel for visitors of the island and its residents.

My husband and I stayed here for the first 3 days of a month long trip. We arrived exhausted, jet lagged and missing one bag. The manager, Samson and his friendly helpful staff were wonderful in getting things sorted and were able to locate and get the bag here within 24 hours without any follow up by us. Our room...

Steve and I stayed at the Dongwe Ocean View for 3 nights at the end of August 2014. From the minute we arrived the setting, staff and local area have charmed and impressed us. There are only 18 guest rooms that are set in 2 different buildings, complete with a separate reception, social and bar/dining area. Around all the buildings...

Although I have seen many beaches in my life, I have to say the one in front of Dongwe is one of the most beautiful ! The fact that we had it almost for ourselves makes it even better. The hotel itself is very nice and well priced. The room we got was large, pleasant, and with a direct sea...

My husband and I stayed early March at this lovely resort on Bewejuu beach. Only 1 day of rain and lots of sun to our surprise.

My wife and I just had a terrific vacation at the Dongwe Club. The most remarkable thing about this resort was the service. Truly, neither of us has ever been so well cared for, and we have both traveled extensively. The staff, led by Sulaiman and assisted by Hamad, Becca, and a number of the waitresses, was constantly checking with...
