What a fabulous time we had here. Food was really good and varies from day to day. You can also eat lunch on the beach each day, but the menu doesn't vary. They serve dinner one night on the beach and one by the pool each week.The hotel was not too big to be impersonal , but big enough. Wifi... More

My husband and I holidayed here with our two young sons and we highly recommend it. The staff are really the best part about this hotel - warm, friendly and attentive. Food was excellent. Many options and great seafood daily. Excellent curries too. Plenty of other options. They made an effort with setting up at different areas of the hotel... More

Stayed for five nights recently in a beach front villa. Room was large but dated and all a bit mouldy. Rooms were turned down each night but minibar consisted of four soft drinks so no chance for a glass of wine overlooking the beach. All inclusive was ok but buffet meals were ordinary and no flair at all. The week... More

Beach at Mapenzi is stunning. I enjoyed the warm sea temperature and spent lots of time in the sea each of our 7-day stay. We took the all-inclusive package and the food and drinks (including cocktails) were excellent. If you want the best food all round from starters, pastas, fresh fish, dessert, etc. this is your place to stay. Plenty... More

This is the most perfect hotel ever! I stayed here with my best friend after being on a 6 day safari in Tanzania. We needed to relax before flying home & this was definitely the best way to do so! On arrival we were taken straight to the restaurant for tea which was lovely as we were hungry after travelling.... More

This resort is luxurious and laid back at the same time. Our beach bungalow was in a beautiful spot right on the beach, overlooking the crystal clear Indian Ocean. The all-inclusive package was excellent. There was a huge choice of food for all meals, which was of a high standard. The freshly cooked grill and pasta stations were particularly good.... More
