8/10 Very good

Friendly clean lodge a short walk from the beach, small clean pool, good Wifi at reception and restaurant (but not in rooms or at pool). Restaurant serves good but rather expensive food.

Right from before arrival, managers confirmed our room as well as shuttle pick up. Room was ready for us to sleep in late at night. Staff is very welcoming and friendly. Guesthouse is lovely with comfortable beds, fans, great meals, water shoes available, lounge cushions, walk to beach, advice and booking of tours, Pool is a cool alternative to the ocean. Beach is lovely. Price is very reasonable. It is a lovely, intimate, quiet, friendly place.

Perfect mix of free spirit bungalow style and comfort convenience. The host team is very friendly, welcoming and can make all local arrangements for guest's adventure travel in the area. Decorations in common areas and inside bungalows are thoughtfully funky and unique which reminds you at every turn that you are in a very special corner of the world ... Zanzibar !

10/10 Exceptional

This has to be the best guest house I’ve ever stayed at! Before we arrived, Paul arranged transport from the airport, even though we arrived pretty late. From the moment we got there, we felt as if we were home. Paul really knows how to make you feel welcome, so much so, we didn’t even leave the guest house the entire second day we were there and even ended staying an extra night! They even have their own kitchen & the food was delicious!! Being in the customer service field, I really appreciate that he went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. I travel the world looking for unique places to stay and the bungalow did not disappoint. The property has monkeys in the trees, geckos all over, and even bush babies come out at night! I cannot say enough good things about Bellevue! Thank you Paul & staff for making our stay in Zanzibar a time we will never forget!

Cute, simple bungalows a short walk from a stunning beach! Dutch couple owners exceptionally helpful and friendly - arranged our taxis and last minute dinner at The Rock in a couple minutes. Hot showers, nice restaurant, comfortable lounging area and pool. A perfect place for real relaxation for a few days!

8/10 Very good

Small, Friendly, Relaxing
An attractive and friendly small guesthouse. Attentive staff and management, good food. A good place to decompress, read and relax. Beach access is indirect but reasonably good; however, the nearby beach is quite dirty (including broken glass, etc.), and we walked the beach far less than we had intended.
