We booked three nights here, and they screwed up--double-booked. They apologised profusely when we arrived, and for the two nights they were double-booked they put us up in a fancier place 15 minutes away. We were completely satisfied that, while they made a mistake, they acknowledged it and took good care of us. So overall that wasn't a problem. The...

A lovely stay at a really beautiful place. The staff were fantastic, the room was beautiful, as was the location. It had lots of little touches to make our stay there that much better and we couldn't fault it. We'd definitely stay there again! It was lovely to have somewhere quiet. Thank you guys for a really memorable and relaxing...

We stayed in the honeymoonsuite which was absolutely amazing. We had some rain during our stay but due to the fantastic room this just wasn't a problem. Food is good, location is good and staff is great. One point of attention; prices of activities, taxis etc are rather high so better arrange yourself.

We spent 4 nights as Bellevue Bungalows in Bwejuu during our honeymoon, and really enjoyed it! It was a great place to unwind after our dusty safari. It is not a place to go if you want hopping nightlife or to swim 24/7. Try Nungwi and the West Coast for that. My husband and I just wanted to relax, and...

During our 3-week holiday on Zanzibar, we (family of four with two children 10 and 13 years old) stayed for five nights (July 06-11, 2011) in a Deluxe (downstairs) and Jungle (upstairs) Bungalow adjacent to the main reception/dining open space house. We all loved our stay at the Bellevue Guesthouse, accompanied by delicious breakfasts and stunning suppers. Very practical setup...

I can highly recommend Bellevue!!!! The staff is very friendly, the owners, Melanie and Dim are super nice and do everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Melanie has made Bellevue a really outstanding place. Not just for Zanzibar. I have almost 40 countries on by back but I have seldom seen a place made with so much individualism and seldom met a host giving such a personal treatment. Do read the website to be sure where you are going. Bellevue is not for everyone but if...

We stayed at Bellevue for 3 nights in Jan-Feb 2011. Bellevue was friendly enough but did not offer the facilities and services you expect for the prices charged. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious. The beach is a (very) short walk away, with hardly any shade at all at the beach and when we were there at low tide the sea...

We made our trip in July, start of high season, to the homeland of my husband. We felt very welcome at Bellevue. We got a deluxe room for the price of a standard, so we had the luxury of hot water in the shower. The rooms are very nice furnished, very clean and everything worked. The place is stunning, beautiful...

Stayed here in early dec 2010. Very welcoming, great food and lovely rooms. Melanie is the perfect host, she organised our trip to swim with dolphins and bellevue provided transport to the kitesurfing school. Zanzibar is an amazing place to learn to kite! We'll definitely be returning to Bellevue. (2 x female 29-32)
