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

We had a great stay at Sea View Lodge. The location and sea are beautiful and the lodge is cosy, personable and has the best staff you could wish for. Everything looks exactly like the potos promise, apart from the pool which is in fact bigger(!) than the pictures suggest. Don't expect a lot of nightlife or an all-inclusive resort-type... More

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.

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.
