Sun and Seaview Bungalows
Ranked #8 of 10 Hotels in Bwejuu
Reviewed October 20, 2013

This is a heaven at Zanzibar. I highly recommend Sun & Sea view bungalows who wish to stay near Paje & Jambiani, where most beautiful & calm beaches are located.
We have spent half day to find a hotel which located near paje in a budget 50USD. I have reached the hotel by 2:00 PM. Once I seen the location & room, I have taken my decision.
I am very sure that, you cannot find another hotel near this beautiful heaven, with this budget price.

Advantages:-
• Location, Marvelous beach with bluish water
• Excellent service
• Nice food
• Perfect for budget travellers
• Very near to Rock restaurant, Butterfly garden, Red colobus monkey park & dolphin safari start point
• Calm and quiet beaches , perfect for couples

I highly recommend you to go and see this hotel, before choosing another option. I am very sure you will not think about another option once you visited here.

We stayed here in September and as it was off season there was only a couple of people around. Most days the whole beach to ourselves. The bungalows were clean, the beds were comfortable and bathrooms were great. we were travelling on a budget and so to find this place for $50 (I think it is more expensive in the peak season) a night was perfect.

The food was reasonably priced but still good portions and very tasty. Personally I was a big fan of the seafood, coconut risotto.

Highly recommend this place.

A beautiful set of bungalows (sturdy cement and well made!) right on the beach in Paje. Extremely romantic feel given the number of couples here and the relative isolation from hustle and bustle. Easy walk down the white sand beach to elsewhere. Very clean and neat bungalows with wonderfully hot water showers. A bit older looking bathrooms, but that does not detract. Susan is a great manager and has shown nothing but genuine kindness and helpfulness. Restaurant can be a bit slow with the meals, but that is most of Tanzania. Overall a great little spot on the water with Paje being the nice seaside escape we needed!

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be about equal!

Stayed here 3 nights in June.

Pros: service was awesome (especially Susie). Bungalows were simple but clean, spacious and had a great view. Right on the beach and as easy walk to Paje if you want more company or food options.

Cons: food was okay, but got tired of it after a few days. No AC in room, but we knew that going in. No pool, but not a big deal as beach is right there. A bit away from stuff - 20 to 30 mins to Paje, otherwise nothing else is really around.

Would come back. Awesome value as was just $60 a night! Perfect for a quiet, chill getaway.

Spent 2 nights here and loved it. So close to beach and so relaxing. Beautiful setting. Romantic and very reasonable. We were on our way round the island and probably would have liked to stay longer.
Room was on the small side but certainly adequate. Had clean bathroom but unfortuantely no AC and only a smallish fan. The room had lots of windows so there was a nice breeze but it was still a little hot at night at times.
Breakfast was served in the open air restaurant and was lovely. We had a few other meals there too which we enjoyed. All in all a lovely experience. Thank you Suzannah for making our stay so pleasant and memorable.

This is a simple place which is reflected in the pricing. The rooms are very simple and there is no pool. However, staff is very friendly and the food in the restaurant ok (we only had lunch).

You can swim in the sea but at low tide you need to walk quite far out. You will find sun chairs and umbrellas on the beach. To go to the “main-part” of Paje, it is a 20-30 minute walk along the beach or a 5 minute cab ride.

Best – Staff friendliness

Good – Rooms

Not so good – Nothing

I was a solo traveller spending a week here after a mental few weeks travelling through Kenya.
Accomodation was faultless. Linen changed everyday, with a few rose petals thrown in for effect, and towels changed dailys. Only negative would be the lack of air conditioning, travelled in November and it was most definetly needed.
Food was fine, but a bit samey, though a walk either direction along the beach brings up plenty of other eateries.
Accomodation is right on the beach, very quiet and relaxing
