We stayed from the 23 June - 30 June 2015 Food was great, there was good variety. Drinks were also good, up to 21 cocktails, local beers and rum. WIFI only in the lobby, which is great because it forces you to stay out of the room. Muhammed is always doing daily activities with the guests such as Volleyball and... More

Our stay at Mapenzi was awesome!! Even though we didn’t take a seafront room our room was perfectly located for us and we wouldn’t have traded it for a seafront room! The staff is really simply the best! They are always friendly, very helpful and the service is really in a class of its own! It’s a stunning hotel!! The... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights here with two other couples, winding up our 4 week Africa trip. Great setting with beautiful sand. Was fairly windy in the afternoons. Our cottages were very nice and had A/C. We enjoyed the pool area some days, the beach other days. Nice to go for a walk when the tide is out... More

Once we arrived at the hotel we were stunned by the architectural design of it. High thatched roofs with lots of beams, terraced layout, tranquil sitting areas with breathtaking views over the sea. The location is spot on. Great beach area, clear water, reefs, sea life, you name it, it is all there. The hotel is very quiet, no kids,... More

Stayed with my family during the Easter holidays ... A great place to relax and unwind. About 45-50 mins drive from Zanzibar airport, its located in the north east part of the island. Offers a perfect vacation for the family. Good kitchen and a friendly service, with a comprehensive full board package. Only issue is the distance if you want... More

This was an absolutely incredible hotel and experience - and I can not understand anyone's complaints! ALL of the rooms have a beautiful view! Don't go paying extra. The whole resort is amazing! The rooms are really beautiful, and have a lovely porch area with a day bed out front. The beauty is overwhelming. I can't understand people complaining about... More

I don't understand the good reviews this Hotel or Resort is receiving. The reason I booked here was because of the reviews I received. Let me explain what a "Superior Garden View Room" means for 325 USD Per night. (Including tax) No Television in your room No workable wifi in your room. Poor Internet in the wifi serviced areas Very... More

We have just returned from a week at this resort.Friendly staff, yummy food and a lovely setting. The beach boys are a big problem and make walking on the beach a bit unpleasant.We noticed guests giving the beach boys drinks which is definitely not a good idea.That encourages to hang around the resort.You need to be firm with them and...

It is the best hotel!!! The staff is the friendliest ever! Probably you can find more modern but if you are looking for a quiet, friendly and nice hotel must to choose Diamonds Mapenzi Beach! The only problem is that you won't go to home or want to be back asap. ;) The best choice!!! :)
