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

though not so close that you can actually see the beach depending on your room. We stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour and as we've mentioned in another review, not knowing how much you've paid for your stay makes it difficult to put things in context (expecting five star value if you pay for a two star hotel...

Could definitely be described as a paradise. Sunset Bungalows was a gorgeous hotel, the rooms were bungalows scattered across the hotel site. There was a bar with pool tables and a restaurants, hammocks and a fire that was lit every night. The bungalows are right on the beach, the rooms were clean and the hotel was also safe and protected.... More

This place lies some place in most people dreams. Its a huge site with houses dotted everywhere, the rooms were clean and large, although little time is spent in them. One issue was the saltiness of the water, better filters are needed. The hotel is large, so there is much walking to be done from the hotel room to the... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Sunset Bungalows. As far as our experience in Tanzania was concerned, this was the place at which the most amenities worked without issue. The water was hot and didn't smell, the room was clean and everything worked. Hurrah! The restaurant was good. We enjoyed the meals we had there and the prices were... More

Good value, not exactly beach front...but close enough. Threw down the backpack and camping gear and got into beach mode. Rooms were wonderful and clean with awesome verandas, ours had the tiniest of ocean views. Wasn't in the room much anyways! THE BEACH was amazing! I spent most of my time next door at Kendwa, as their restaurant food was... More

The flat itself was spacious, had AC, but we did only use the fan, was clean, a nice veranda with view to the garden. We did have problem with the safe, but... More

We booked a beach front bungalow and got just that. Good value for money at $96 usd per night. Restaurant was good and lounging at the bar was a very popular past time for many. Lovely stretch of beach and close to other resorts if you feel like a different restaurant. Only complaint would be that the bathroom was very... More

I stayed here last year in September (2013). After camping and backpacking, this was a majorly relaxing place. I will note that it is probably not sufficient for a business traveler, as they don't have good WiFi service. The staff struggle with English a bit, but enough to get through their jobs. The restaurant is slow, but you can order... More

we arrived at the hotel late at night after a long coach journey, so did not appreciate the view on the first night, although were very surprised when we were shown our rooms! we had a massive double bed, sofa seats and free safe and free aircon all in our room. We turned the 'please clean our room' sign over... More
