Having been to Zanzibar half a dozen times this was my first stay at Sunset Bungalows and if I was going back to Kendwa.. I would stay here again!
Six of us shared a room with three double beds and still had plenty of space! We only used the room for sleeping and showering but it was a very nice room with a huge bathroom, great shower and two sinks (used one to keep our drinks cool). The room had AC & a small veranda. The hotel is cheaper than Kendwa rocks next door (especially if you split a room 6-ways!) and we walked next door on the night of the full moon no problem (friends were staying there).
The restaurant is not particularly fast (Tanzanian Time??), or amazing cheap, but it's pretty good when it gets there and the prices are comparable to other places along the beach. If you want cheap food try the 'Fishermans Restaurant' which is one road inland and is literally about half the price.
The beach is beautiful, sunsets lovely and the Friday night party at Sunset is a lot of fun. No pool, but you can put a pool anywhere... you cant swim in water that clear & blue like you can in Zanazibar.
