Staying at Evergreen was like a dream come true. It is truly a piece of paradise an hour away from Stone Town. The bungalow was cozy, clean and well-maintained. I had a beautiful sea view from my window and the beach was just 50 meters away from my door! I have never met such hospitable and caring people before. The...

Great location and reasonably priced but our room was not what we booked. When we arrived we were shown to our room where we had to negotiate a very precarious uneven ladder with our luggage. The ladder was steep, all different widths and depths. Getting up and down was difficult for us so I wouldn't recommend to anyone who might...

Basic accomodations, but beautifully located on the beach, as close to the sea as you can get! Very easygoing, friendly staff & good food. Lots of excursions to do which were easy to be arranged. Overall a fantastic experience!

Very African experience. The accommodations is not for the ones that fancy 5 star hotels, but it`s perfect for really understanding Africa. Very good and fresh food, very hospitable people! We felt like moving there for good after staying 10 days in this magnificent place! I totally recommend visiting Zanzibar and staying at Evergreen Bungalows. Also, speak with Edmond (the...

To be clear, the location is excellent - right on the beach. (Although you need to be aware of the tidal water. At low tide, the water is about 2 km from the beach... The timing of the lows and highs moves across the day, but you can swim safely at peak times and +/- ~2 hours.) The food is...

Although Evergreen Bungalows is beautifully located, you need to be prepared for some very basic accommodation. We were located in the upstairs room which had no screen on the side window and allowed the mosquitoes to enter freely. It was as if we were not expected despite our reservation. There was only one sheet on the beds, no net over...

I stayed at Evergreen for a week vacation and it was so fantastic. The tours offered through the hotel were affordable and so much fun, and I felt welcomed and comfortable. The food was amazing, the location was beautiful, and the people were so kind. It was a great destination for anyone who wants an amazing experience in Zanzibar.

Overall the place looks beautiful including the bungalows, and the staff is very nice, but there were a few issues. I stayed in an upstairs room in a bungalow, there was a great view of the ocean, however there are no screens or glass over the windows which allowed quite a few mosquitos to get in. Despite spraying the room...

Evergreen Bungalows is a quite and peaceful little paradise. There is something surreal to it, it feels like the days blend together and it's all just ocean, hammocks, food, diving, ocean... - you get the picture. It feels like you could really get hooked in this place. Actually, I thought about NOT reviewing there won't be more guests when I...
