“Disappointing Sunrise Guiest House”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2006

Booked as a result of Tripadvisor review, but it was not like the description, tired looking, in need of refurbishment and a good clean, indifferent service, average food, very poor breakfast and overpriced at 80$ for one person B&B,The Belgian owner does not appear to be doing the cooking now! The beach is lovely, but there is a wide choice on the East coast and they all have a lovely beach
Compared with the Peninsula Boutique Hotel in Dar es Salaam at less money it is very poor value
There the rooms have sea view, room service and the food is excellent with a full English breakfast included in the price

While the beach was beautiful and it was great to have a pool (can’t swim in the sea at low tide), the rooms and the grounds were very simple and rather rustic. The bathroom in our room was not especially clean (large dirt stain in the shower) and there were ants everywhere, including on our toothbrushes (and we had no food). Also, the water was quite salty – we needed bottled water for brushing teeth.

The restaurant was very good, if a bit pricey for Zanzibar, but it was very quiet in the evenings. Definitely have to bring lots of books or borrow the board games.

Overall, we felt the rooms were overpriced and the hotel a bit rundown. Not really worth $90/night.

This is south of Breezes Beach Club (qv), about 45 minutes walk away along the beach.

I don't know how many rooms it has, not many probably, and only one couple were staying there when we had lunch, but the pool and dining room looked nice and the food was fine, although there weren't too many bottles of drink behind the bar. The bar toilets were a little tired. The beach is the same quality as Breezes.
