We travelled as a group of 3 friends and really enjoyed our stay in Sea View Lodge. There is a beautiful beach - you can walk for an hour each way from the hotel and still have further to go! There are red colobus monkeys in the trees at one end of the beach. The restaurant in the hotel is... More

My room on the ocean was great. It's not the Ritz, but I didn't want the Ritz in Zanzibar. The restaurant was great and the staff worked very hard to accommodate any request. The owner was readily available and very helpful. I suggest a bite at the Belvedere Resort down the beach for something different.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Sea View Hotel. The room was extremely spacious. My friend and I had our own bathroom, there was A/C, a fan and it was very clean. The pool was very nice and clean, and we were steps away from the gorgeous beach. The food was absolutely amazing. Each time we needed a taxi,... More

If you like a quiet place there the whole stuff care about you, you will find it here. If you need bars and party life, it will be the wrong place. Everybody is friendly and helpfull. The price for trips over the island are a little bit higher compared to others.

If you're looking for peace and quiet combined with awesome scenery: don't hesitate and go to the Sea View Lodge. I spent one week here and can only be positive. The rooms are comfortable: good bed, mosquito net, large shower,.. and very clean. The hotel grounds are very well kept. Swimming pool although not too big is deep, which I... More

We spent one week at Sea View Loge as part of our honeymoon trip. We had high expectations, notably in terms of quietness and tasting of local food. And Sea View Lodge surpassed all our expectations: - The place is very quiet, enabling to have a good rest. The owner pays a strong attention to ensure quietness. - Rooms are... More

Lovely experience! very comfortable stay. Host is very friendly. Ocean front and very quiet. Not many tourists in that area so it is very peaceful. Food at the restaurant is very good. Best part is that its not crowded.

Our 6 night stay was exactly what we were looking for. Not being high season, the area was pretty quiet, but the hotel was full throughout most of our stay. Our room (beach front) was simply, but tastefully decorated. Storage could have been a little better, but the bed was comfortable with good mosquito nets and the bathroom had a... More
