Staff were nice and polite .
Electricity stopped multiple times for more than six hours; cockroaches in the room and on the pillow, lice, a very dangerous hole in the balcony where you can break your leg; place is very dangerous in a village and opened from the seaside. No security no safety only one guard at the entrance however the place is opened from the beachside where anyone has access. Very old and dirty. There is zero safety, the stairs are slippery and the entire place is unsafe as my husband even slipped on the stairs as we were going down to the beach. Nobody wiped the stairs from water. When it rained, the water dropped from the ceiling inside the room and in the bed. Disssapointing. Breakfast was miserable, was supposed to be a buffet, however for buffet we’re only allowed coffee, tea and bread. You are allowed to choose one omelette only and a finger sized slice of cheese and if you order sausage they bring a very small piece on a big plate. Fruit platter has one slice of apple one slice of mango one slice of orange and half a banana. If you want to order anything else it takes a very long time. We depended on the comments and reviews, but they were not accurate with what we experienced. We only appreciated the staff attitude.
The room with ocean view was such amazing. It comes with a balcony which make the stay even more pleasant. Decoration is nice and enhances the pleasure for staying at Sunshine. Restaurant as well as the swimming pool both located by the beach are nice to relax.
Nothing except the hotel pricing for Taxi transfers : 50$ airport to Hotel & especially a 90$ hôtel to Jambiani ! You can easily divide by 2 when asking locals directly. I would recommend to grab a taxi upon arrival that you can negotiate at 40$ and keep the phone number for further transfers.
The staff is super friendly and funny, especially at the restaurant. Pool area is very nice and the rooms are fantastic. Very big and comfy bed and big balconies. The restaurant is good and the breakfast more then enough (you can choose eggs, fruits, pancakes, etc)
The restaurant is very nice but a bit expensive and the portions are quite small. Also there was no music until we asked them to play some. It was super silent before but with a bit of background music it was OK. The beach is beautiful but unfortunately full of seaweed (not the hotels fault but they should at least try to keep it clean)
Everything was perfect. The food as well. Personnel very kind and attentive to your needs. Bicycle for free at disposition
Great staff, room and facilities. Infinity pool view was amazing. Also recommend Elizabeth at the spa. And free bikes to use along the beach! Make sure to go to beach about 20 mins before sunrise, it was stunning!
There were only three options for main meal in evening, one fish, one meat and one veg. As a vegetarian I would have liked a bit more choice of dishes
