Sea View Lodge is a wonderful hotel. It's very cozy,clean and with amazing location. I have visited all island and for me beach in Jambiani was the best. What is more there are only 18 rooms so it's perfect place to just relax. Food was very tasty. Maybe the only minus was small dinner meals but you could always make up with starters ;) Stuff is very friendly and always happy. I definitely recommend that hotel

the place location is wonderful right in front of the ocean with a private beach few steps from our room, clean rooms and very welcome staff and service, our flight back home was late at night 11:35 PM and they agreed to extend our stay for late checkout until 4:00pm without extra charges although the hotel was fully booked, thank you so much for hosting us and we will surely consider staying here when we come back to Jambinani.

Putting it a 4 * is a misunderstanding. Many will write that it is other 4 * - non-European, etc., for me it should be a determinant of quality, especially when the price of the entire trip, compared to the quality, is significantly overstated. For me, the standard is poor 3. From the beginning ... rooms themselves are rather dirty and old, bathroom with damp and peeling plaster. There are holes in the sheets and cracking mattresses underneath the sheets. Many rooms have no mosquito nets and the air conditioning is not working. The smell of moisture is quite noticeable. The staff tried a wonderful cleanliness and that's a big plus for this place. The working people tried very hard and this is one of the few positives of this facility. Property is managed by an economic expat from Italy. Managed poorly. The food is modest and tasteless. There were dinners untouched by all the guests (banana in the main course with dry chicken and the same banana as dessert). Coincidence? I do not think so. Well, despite the pandemic and the inability to serve in the form of a buffet, we expected that in this sunny country we will find variety of fruits and vegetables with high quality and quantity. Perhaps elsewhere so - not in Sea View. Small portions and quite poor quality. It happened once she received an octopus but it was so rubbery that ... it was impossible to eat it. No animation. The pluses as above: employees, nice, unobtrusive, clean, with a sense of humor. The hotel is intimate with nice local "houses". The weather is probably everywhere there not just in SeaView. I do not reccomend if you expect nice food and proper quality of facility.
