This place was highly rated in Lonely Planet - that may explain why we were disappointed. The beach is OK, but we were not able to swing - the tide always seemed to be too low. The biggest disappointment was the room - not so clean and towels were not replaced after 5 days, the glasses were not replaced. The...

I recently stayed 2 nights at this beautiful authentic guesthouse on Zanzibar's east coast. It really is a special place. The management and staff are super friendly and the food is fresh and excellent. There are little colourful touches everywhere that make the place feel really homely. Lots of cushions and little seating areas, hammocks, books to read and beautiful...

The managers, a lovely pair from Europe were great. They were heading home soon after we had left, but I'm sure their replacements are just a good. They, as well as the staff, were very helpful when we were booking excursions. Take the Blue Tour... its excellent! The location is quieter than the area around Paje beach and its easy...

The Bellevue Guesthouse is a very good place to stay if you are looking for calm and relaxation. It would be the perfect stay for a honey moon or for a retreat with friends. But if you are looking for parties, learning kite surf or things like that maybe it would be better for you to go closer to Paje....

Our stay here was amazing. You could literally never move from the property as it was breathtakingly beautiful with pool, beach (who are these people who complain about the distance?? It's practically on the doorstep) and wonderful food. Ask for the veggie menu though if the daily choice isn't to your liking....we only discovered there was one later in our...

This hotel is situated on the west-coast away from the crowded touristic area . Very nice garden with sandy paths to the various bungalows and the villa where we stayed . The view from the first floor room with a spacious terrace (narrow staircase) was amazing. Very quiet beach , no tourists , only locals looking for seaweed and fishes...

We arrived here after spending 5 days on safari and really enjoyed a relaxing stay here. During our stay the managers were in a handover period but all four of them were very welcoming and went out of their way to help when my wife was feeling ill. Thanks for the great hospitality.
