It seems that there are three names for the hotel (same pictures and address; the names range from: Resort, Getaway and Sea View). We stayed in this hotel for just one night simply because it is close to the hotel, as most reviewers have pointed...More

About
Description
THE ISLAND SEA VIEW is your perfect vacation getaway or a start to an island holiday. Located on the beach with the endless Indian ocean in front of you​, yet literally 3 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes ...More from stone town. There is no other convenient location you could wish for. Lots of clean restaurants and bar shacks buzzing with tourists can be found very close by in walking distance from the road, and you can scoot your way to stone town just 10 minutes away for all the tourist attractions, pubs and nightlife.
