Very African experience. The accommodations is not for the ones that fancy 5 star hotels, but it`s perfect for really understanding Africa. Very good and fresh food, very hospitable people! We felt like moving there for good after staying 10 days in this magnificent place! I totally recommend visiting Zanzibar and staying at Evergreen Bungalows. Also, speak with Edmond (the... More

To be clear, the location is excellent - right on the beach. (Although you need to be aware of the tidal water. At low tide, the water is about 2 km from the beach... The timing of the lows and highs moves across the day, but you can swim safely at peak times and +/- ~2 hours.) The food is... More

Although Evergreen Bungalows is beautifully located, you need to be prepared for some very basic accommodation. We were located in the upstairs room which had no screen on the side window and allowed the mosquitoes to enter freely. It was as if we were not expected despite our reservation. There was only one sheet on the beds, no net over... More

I stayed at Evergreen for a week vacation and it was so fantastic. The tours offered through the hotel were affordable and so much fun, and I felt welcomed and comfortable. The food was amazing, the location was beautiful, and the people were so kind. It was a great destination for anyone who wants an amazing experience in Zanzibar.

Overall the place looks beautiful including the bungalows, and the staff is very nice, but there were a few issues. I stayed in an upstairs room in a bungalow, there was a great view of the ocean, however there are no screens or glass over the windows which allowed quite a few mosquitos to get in. Despite spraying the room... More

Evergreen Bungalows is a quite and peaceful little paradise. There is something surreal to it, it feels like the days blend together and it's all just ocean, hammocks, food, diving, ocean... - you get the picture. It feels like you could really get hooked in this place. Actually, I thought about NOT reviewing there won't be more guests when I... More

We stayed at Evergreen for the first three days of our holiday to Tanzania. The bungalows are located on an amazingly beautiful and very quiet stretch of beach. The only ones passing are the local women who collect sea weed and some cows (no kite surfers here). The hotel offers all kinds of day excursions for if you want to... More

First off, this is probably the most amazing location I have every stayed at. The bungalows are literally right on the beach, like 20m from the ocean at high tide. The food was really wonderful, diverse menu with local dishes and fresh seafood. The issues I had was with the service and with my accomodations. I was very disappointed with... More

Had an amazing stay here last month. Great hospitality, they always want to know what they can do for you to make your stay the best. They offer lots of excursions (dive, snorkeling, arrange sightseeing) if you want or you can just rent a bike and explore the beautiful beach. If you expect a 5* hotel you might want to... More

We spent 3 nights in a self-contained room on the top half of a bungalow on the beach. It is a low-key beautiful place to stay on the beach at Bwejuu. We were looking to relax and recuperate and we did exactly that. The room had a funny curtained off bathroom that worked well (reminded me of Robinson Crusoe), we... More
