      Exceptional”

      Sunshine hotel is a wonderful place to relax and quite. The staff and hotel rooms are top class that makes you feel you somewhere on a secluded island. Dinner might have more options available especially if you don't want to spend 14-18 doller every night. Regardless of this it was a wonderful holiday.

      Excellent experience- Will visit again”

      The location is about an hour drive from the harbour. We got a complimentary upgrade to Honeymoon Suite which was extremely beautiful and offered a full view of the turquoise blue Matemwe beach from the bed. The place is a quiet, quaint, well kept secret. The managers there went the extra mile to ensure we were taken care of. The chef made vegetarian dishes specially for us. On early morning checkout, they packed us a breakfast at 5 AM in the morning. Felt loved and cared in this place. Must see.

      Nice location, wonderfull facilites with greate service

      We stayed at sunshine hotel for 3 nights and had a wnoderfull time just chilling by the pool and beach. The hotell has a greate location next to the beach (wich is much more nice here then the south of zanzibar) and two relaxed pool areas with a view over the beach.

      Extremely disappointed!”

      Easy access to good diving, spacious rooms, friendly waiters

      The hotel was very pretty but unfortunately the management doesn't seem to have their act together. Despite their clearly long experience in the industry the managers seem to have become too comfortable in their positions. On two occasions breakfast was an hour late to start which was very inconvenient as many of us had diving trips booked. On the first such day we couldn't finish eating before we had to leave and on the second occasion we literally had to scream outside the managers room to wake him up to open the kitchen. The food was extremely limited especially for non fish eaters and as the hotel was relatively secluded we were forced to pay a lot for such dishes as chicken with French fries for dinner. The included breakfast was also limited and did not offer options like potatoes. The management did not offer compensation or options for our inconvenience and only apologized when confronted. One manager yelled at the staff abusively which made it very uncomfortable. Although they claim to spray for bugs we found numerous cockroaches in our bed which we did not have in another zanzibarian hotel.

      最高のバルコニー”

      空港から1時間強と少し遠いですが、ホテルとしてはとてもいいです。たまたま最もいいビューの部屋の1つだったので、目の前にプールと海が広がり、広々としたバルコニーでコーヒーを飲みながら見た朝焼けとサンセットは特別な時間でした。
