My friend and I had the most amazing time in Zanzibar staying at Sea View. Unfortunately it was rainy season so had limited time to spend sunbathing. However, the staff were very helpful and arranged for us to do tours into town and the spice farm. Had an excellent massage by the resident therapist. Food at the restaurant was very good and fresh, as was breakfast. The staff made the experience for us, they looked after us and took us out to the local parties and we had so much fun. Definitely recommended for everyone- families, couples and young travellers like us. Thank you everyone at Sea View!

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights after a long safari in mainland Tanzania and 7 nights in the quiet, restful Michamvi. We wanted to stay close to Stone Town, but not in the center as we wanted to relax before the long flight home. Hakuna Matata did not disappoint - it was a beautifully kept lodge, respectful to the natural environment and showcasing the ancient ruins. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the bungalow we stayed in was stunning with a view over the private cove. One of our best nights in Tanzania was having a cocktail on the terrace overlooking the sea, watching thousands of bats fly overhead from Prison Island to Stone Town - a real spectacle! Can't recommend highly enough for a peaceful, luxury break just outside Stone Town.

"Wonderful stay at a relaxing and comfortable lodge"
The Sunshine Marine Lodge is a great relaxation escape! The grounds and setting are beautiful and all the rooms enjoy great views. The restaurant is reasonably priced with attentive, polite staff and good food at all times of the day. We sampled a wide range of drinks from the bar which were great. There are plenty of places to relax like hammocks and loungers round the pool. Room furnishings are very comfortable compared to other places we stayed in Tanzania (although this was a higher price range than those others). The snorkelling trip to Mnemba atoll was well worth it even in the rougher weather and we swum with dolphins! We did walk to the beach at low tide and explored the rock pools but spent most of our time chilling out. Allow 3 nights or more as it is a reasonable trip from Stone Town. I recommend that most of your Zanzibar excursions are done from a Stone Town base and then you should come here mainly to relax.

We cannot say enough about this resort. Everything was beyond perfect. We worked with Asia in the tourism/trip office there on the premises and she arranged a different excursion for us everyday - from swimming with the dolphins to a fishing village visit to the spice farm to the monkeys in Jozani Forest. The food was great, the ocean clear, the premises spectacular. If you want a great place to stay in Zanzibar please choose Neptune Pwani. You will not be disappointed!!
