We stayed for two nights in January. Our room was the "Ocean view" which is precisely what it is. You have a little front porch, with chairs, and loungers just ahead of that. It's really lovely. Great shower, small but really well designed room. It was very quiet, so quiet that when our next door neighbor apologized for her baby... More

Mixed feeling about this place. Jambiani is a lovely spot, long beach where locals and tourists form a nice blend, no big resorts. Sea vie lodge has been taken over by new (Italian) owners not too long ago, they have created a beautiful pool area and a nice looking reception with a small shop. The location is great right on...

My wife and me were staying in the Sea View Lodge in the beginning of December 2014 for one week and we both absolutely loved it. Beautifully set on the amazing beach of Jambiani it offers 8 small houses, we had beach front with great sea view and a superb pool. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. The... More

We stayed for a weekend at the Sea View and loved it. The public areas were clean and pretty, the bungalow (sea view) was nicely furnished and decorated. Comfy bed, great AC (a big draw for me and most of the places around didn't have it no matter how nice they were), safe in room, nets around the bed were... More

This was a lovely place to relax and so peaceful. My room was right in front of the beach a great view of the blue coral sea. The room was spacious and had A/C and a great big fan, which kept me cool on the very hot eight days and nights I was there. Very spacious clean room with spacious... More

This resort is on the east side of Zanzibar, so it's a bit of a trek to get there, but worth it. It's clean, the food is great, the drinks are icy cold, and the staff goes out of their way to make sure you're comfortable and have everything you need. Make sure you bring cash if you aren't doing... More

This cozy place is perfect. The room was large, very neat and clean. All staff members where very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is very good. They even made (homemade) ice tea on request. The pool is very nice. It's just a little paradise. Don't expect nightlife. There are plenty possibilities for tours. We did a dolphin... More
