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

On first appearances, this seems to be an ok beach hotel. The rooms are fairly clean. However, there was a smell of urine in our room. Our toilet leaked and there were cockroaches in the room. The hotel staff played very loud music until late at night in the bar. However, things went from ok to horribly wrong. On our... More

It is one of the more affordable hotels in this popular area of Zanzibar.The beach is beautiful and the bungalows are virtually on it whereas the apartments are a bit higher. The entrance is a bit secluded, but 50000 TZS should be more than enough for transport from airport or port (though the taxi drivers at the port asked for... More

We have been here 4 night in February 2015. We got bad experience with Credit Card Payment: they accept credit card but they charge if you pay with it, although it is not written on the info. The reader of credit cards had problems, so they charged me 4 times the same amount of the restaurant, and the dispute with... More

If you're looking for a perfect slice of beach, this is it. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, but who cares, because you're on the beach anyway. The only ding is that the bar and restaurant staff weren't that interested in serving us during the day -- there were a lot of employees(?) hanging out and you really had to... More

Despite having one of the rooms the furthest away from the beach, I still can't fault the location of Sunset - it takes 2 minutes to walk down to the most beautiful beach. The hotel have their own sunbeds in a certain section of the beach that you can use for free, and both beach and shower towels are offered... More

Our room looked out over the beach and the view was beautiful. The rooms are simple, a bed, fan, aircon, mosquito net, and a big bathroom, but it was perfectly suited to our needs and was very comfortable. Although the shower only got to luke warm, the weather ensured that hot water wasnt needed. The laundry service was great, inexpensive... More

We stayed for two nights at Sunset Bungalows. We found the rooms to be comfortable and value for money. Theyre not extravagant, but if that's what youre looking for head up the road and you'll find it at the resorts, you'll pay for it too. The restaurant served average food, well priced, but always slow to come out. Breakfast wasnt... More
