We stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour. It was great value for money and we had a huge room with a 4 poster bed. The staff were incredibly friendly and we thought it was really good value. The breakfast wasn't amazing but I would still definitely recommend.

This is a review only for the restaurant. We stopped here one day for lunch; 7 of us ordered the pizza. It was just barely eatable. Most likely one of those ready packaged ones to warm up. The girl waitress was nice and courteous. The place is nice but the experience had better be avoided. Also very expensive: the bill... More

After spending a week camping on Kilimanjaro, this hotel felt like paradise with restaurants and a bar right on the beach, so for the whole week we never left the beach! Although breakfasts were basic, and there were a few communication issues with staff who at times were less than friendly, overall a really enjoyable stay at Sunset Bungalows! The... More

Staff friendly and well conversed. The reasonably priced menu held mouth watering dishes and the prompt beautiful presentation made this an occasion to remember and return to..the selection of music was... More

This hotel was paradise after two weeks of camping (we were part of an overlander tour), a beautiful spacious, light and airy, clean room with a view out towards the sea (though largely obscured by palm trees). The room was a minute's walk to the restaurant/bar and beach and towels and loungers were included which was a great bonus. I... More

Amazing location. We ended up choosing this place last minute and were extremely happy we did. Beautiful beach! The best in the region really. The hotel is right on the beach. They just finished building a new bar on the beach (absolutely stunning and very ''boutique hotel'') and are working on a new restaurant. This place is already great and... More

Really nice hotel after camping for 2 weeks! Lovely staff, super cute cat that hangs around. Beach is lovely, local ladies offer braiding, massage, manis and pedis and also hena. But the hena is black which I've heard is bad so didn't get. I was in a twin share single beds room. Really nice with amazing showers. Restaurant is OK... More

This was my second visit to Kendwa which is one of the most spectacular beaches imaginable. Sunset is long established and looking a little tired and dated but remains affordable and perfectly comfortable. Wifi, air conditioning and the bungalows are moments from the beach although are side on so dont have a direct sea view. The bar/restaurant area is comfortable... More

The hotel is located in the wonderful stretch of beach leading to Nungwi. The room are OK and basic however the toilet are to be improved on since we've had unpleasant smell from the toilet. The room was well cleaned , however the sleep quality was at times disturbed by the music from the bar. The food was of reasonable... More
