I stayed at the Sunset Beach Resort with friends in the busy holiday season in December 2013. The place was packed and therefore (I hope that is the reason although it shouldn't be), overall service was slow and not too friendly, the electricity was out so no aircon at night i.e. VERY sweaty, and the food in the restaurant in...

Although they renovating it was a beautiful room well situated on the beach. Rain the first day but had a party in the evening at Kwenda Rocks. The Breakfast if include should have more choices but otherwise a special place to stay. Beachboys are notorius for the area but the security is there to stop them. We had a blast... More

Really enjoyed our stay here - good value, right on the beach, great food and drinks! (try the coconut mojito) Wouldn't bother forking out on a room close to the beach - its a fairly small hotel so you are never far away and if you are travelling on a budget like we were then its not worth it (save...

We moved to this hotel from Ora Resort next door where our room was awful. This hotel was fantastic in comparison. We were given a sea view room at no extra cost. The resort is really picturesque, the rooms are clean and a great size with big verandas. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Our stay... More

I stayed here with a friend in Oct 2011. Upon arrival our room was well prepared and very spacious, however there was a banging noise we could hear that was quite distracting. After trying to ignore the noise we eventually went to the front desk at about 3am and the chap there helped us move into another room. This was... More

I wish to express my satisfaction during our short stay a tZanzibar. I noted the welcoming response right from the time of my email inquiries which gave me an encouragement to give the hotel a trial. With all sincerity, the services did not disappoint us; the staff response time and cheerfulness are commendable. The meals were also nice and fresh.... More

Wow!!!!!! What a lovely holiday. We had heard that there was no electricity in zanzibar and obviously thought OMG now what? Having booked and paid for the hotel online without knowing anything about it we did not know what to expect. The tour operators in zambia could not book it cause it is mainly sold to the Italian market. The... More
