We stayed here for 3 nights and loved the easy access to the beach, the friendly welcome. It's well priced for the bungalows which are literally a stones throw from the beach, beers cold and good choice. Bar is a great place to meet people and its lovely to sit by the fire.

Breakfasts were fine - bread, jam and fruit and unlimited tea and coffee.

Thursday night is party night which goes until the wee small hours, and maybe we'd have avoided this if we'd have know as we were looking forward to some peace and quiet after a hetic few weeks and its a bit noisy. Plus side is that it attracts lots of locals as well as tourists.

We didn't stay at the Garden Bungalows, but did frequent the bar often during our stay nearby. Jennie who runs the place is an absolute treat - really nice lady - and the bar is very well stocked, MUCH better than most places in Jambiani.

On one night, 5 different groups from our nearby hotel were at the Garden Bungalows bar!

Hopefully you'll enjoy using it as a hotel, but we really loved it as a local nightspot!

We were travelling along jambiani staying at various different hotels. We stop off here one night fora few drinks and some food. We met the owners Jenny and Ali who were lovely and friendly. They work really hard trying to make there place look beautiful, and it really does. Fantastic location and food is beautiful. Fresh fish everyday (perfect). I recommend this place highly.

The simplicity of this place in an incredibly beautiful natural setting right on the beach makes for an unparalleled relaxing experience. I am planning to go back at the first opportunity I have.

The place is very harmonic and the breakfast delicious! directly at the beach you can just relax and get a drink at the nice beach-bar. Jenny and Ali are very helpful and nice persons who you always can talk to and ask for advice!
we were there during low-season but everyone was wunderful and made sure that we felt comfortable. I wish them all the best!
