“Holidays in paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

Great holidays in a beautiful place! If you are looking for quiet and relaxing holidays - this is the place to go! Comfortable rooms (no luxury but all what you need), private beach & amazing ocean with hundreds of different colours during the day. From the first glance - it looks like a paradise and after 9 days of staying there - we can honestly say - it was a paradise!!! Great service (amazing guys very caring for you and taking seriously your every wish) & good food, however food I would say is one thing that was a bit surprising. We expected plenty of seafood, perfectly done but actually the best dishes were the Italian ones not local ones as the owner comes from Italy :). Nevertheless we enjoyed a lot and you must try risotto or past with seafood :). No rush here, just 10 rooms, detached from crowded Paje beach that made our stay great & almost like a private one. Enjoy! PS. When you wrote to them to check availability, they were the only ones who wrote back within 1 hour! Client oriented team!

If you want a relaxing holiday with your family or friends I think this place is the place to go. When you go out of your bungalow the beach is only a few steps away. The blue water, the white sand and the beauiful palmtrees really do look like paradise.

My friend and I stayed at Sun and Seaview for nine days. The beach, the bungalows and the people there are sooo nice! The food is also great and we enjoyed every meal there :) The service is incredibly friendly and all in all our vacation there was just wonderful...

Dear all readers of this review
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Sun and seaview over Christmas 2009, and had a fantastic experience. Waking up to the sound of the Indian Ocean, feeling that you have the eastside of Zanzibar for yourself is just romantic and amazing. The bungalows are just a 20 min wander down the beach away from amazing diving and Kite surfing spots.
And the service..... The service at the hotel was great.

A twist to the story was that my girlfriend and I were in a traffic accident just outside Paje and the staff at the hotel was just fantastic and very helpful. They helped us at the hospital, visiting us and helping bringing our luggage from the sun and seaview to Stonetown be course we needed to go to Dar Es Salaam for treatment and needed our luggage with us. We did not return to the resort this time but next time we visit Zanzibar we know where to book.

Thank you staff at the Sun and seaview you will always be in our thoughts.

After finishing a safari in Kenya and trying to escape generally stressful jobs, my girlfriend and I chose Sun and Seaview Bungalows in east Zanzibar for a bit of relaxation. We weren't disappointed. In addition to the beautiful, wide white beaches just on the other side of a line of trees from our bungalow, Sun and Seaview had a very attentive staff that knew when to cater to you and when to leave you alone. Led by Federico, the eccentric Italian married to a beautiful Kenyan woman, the staff made our stay very comfortable; we were also lucky that we were the only ones staying there during our four days.

Snorkeling is a short walk down the beach to Paje and can be organized by Federico. The breakfast (included) was simple but tasty, lunches were adequate (a la carte menu), and dinner (rotating menu) was something that our Italian host obviously took pride in. All meals were served with views of the ocean in a restaurant that was cozy. The rooms were simple; not 5 star but enough to be comfortable. The mosquito net was key and the housekeeper even made it a point to put rose petals on our bed every morning.

All in all, if you're expecting supreme luxury you should probably look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a comfortable and charming escape from the world, set in one of the most stunningly beautiful settings (although it's on the eastern side of the island, so if you want to see the sun at its finest you'll have to get up for sunrise) in the world, this is your place.

Me and my friends stayed here for 4 nights near the New Years 2009-2010. We enjoyed it a lot. The place was a good value for our money (I think we got it a bit cheaper because some of us are residents). The main electricity cable had been broken and it took 6 weeks to repair it but we didn´t have any problems without it. The food was good even without milk etc. products. We had electricity for couple hours during the evening and morning with the generator. The staff was helpful and nice, thanks to Emanuel who´s working in the restaurant. The place where just good for us to relax and enjoy the sun and beach and books. There isn´t much more to do but we didn´t need anything else :) There is couple of other hotels nearby but they didn´t look as good as ours. We had a lovely New Year´s buffee dinner at the beach with other guests, food was good and the atmosphere excellent. I cannot imagine better way to start a new year.

My friend and I spent 2 nights and 3 wonderful days at the Sun & Sea View. The experience was incredible. The location was perfect! Our bungalow was just a few steps from the beach where we enjoyed the relaxing sunbeds. We loved it so much that we are planning our return trip for 10 days in November. The staff was friendly, professional and accomodating. They made us feel at home without being intrusive. We ate at the restaurant several times because the food was excellent and well prepared. Each morning we enjoyed a lovely breakfast and our table was beautifully set, ready and waiting for us. If you are planning a trip to Zanzibar, I highly recommend staying at the Sun & Sea View. You will love the east side of the island and the quiet vilage Bwejuu. This fabulous hidden gem has thought of everything to make your Zanzibar vacation a completely awesome experience. I cannot say enough wonderful thinmgs about this place! I loved it!!
