We went here on our honeymoon - the rooms and beach are awesome, so are the staff. The food was a major down point and I would almost say it made our entire trip unpleasant. Three buffets a day with nothing spectacular on the menu - very little seafood. There was also absolutely no option of getting anything else made.... More

Just what we needed after Kilimanjaro. It has a good pool, good beach, lovely rooms (huts) good amount of activities and the food/drinks are good quality. Always dome sort of food or drink on offer and staff make you feel very welcome. Dont be afraid of "beach boys", they do not hassle and trips are worth going on. Very relaxing... More

Enjoyed a 7 day stay at Mapenzie Beach, and our first visit to Zanzibar Quick rundown of hotel: Aprox 45 min drive from Airport Garden room was beautiful, spacious and appreciated the air conditioning :) We were right next to the pool - great proximity to everything. I really enjoyed the food variety ~ Breakfast, Lunch & Dinners were great... More

I have had the pleasure of twice visiting Mapenzi. The experience was amazing, the staff beyond friendly and efficient, the food delicious, the cocktails sublime and every time I've left, I've wanted to go back! Highly recommended

We had three rooms on the beach ( at extra small cost ) and highly recommend the extra expenditure as the rest of the Hotel is on a hillside and there are steps after steps. Buffet style meals cater to an all inclusive clientele, so are repetitive and unimaginative.The supplementary restaurant on the beach ( extra cost) is better with... More

Wow - this was my first all-inclusive experience and although I was impressed, I'm not sure I'll do it again. Our room was gorgeous - right in front of the ocean and surrounded by sand. Inside, it was clean and beautifully decorated. The food was tasty and the chefs seemed to really value freshness. After a few days though, no... More

Nice hotel in Zanzibar with good service and not bad food. Lots of Italians and French. Ocean coast not very good and pool quite small. Pretty sand, some different sport games makes some differ during the day. Locals are annoying, but not allowed to the territitory. May be excellent for some "relaxing" rest cause no any disco or other entertainment... More

We spent a week at Sansdies Mapenzi Beach Club in November 2013. Once we arrived, we were greeted with a cold drink and a refreshing towel. After getting the key to our bungalow, we were led to our accommodation. The hut we were staying at, was separated from other similar buildings, very spacious with comfy beds, mosquito nets, AC, large... More

We have just come back from a week at this resort on the East coast of Zanzibar. The rooms, staff, facilities and food were all of a high standard. The excursions we went on included swimming with dolphins, touring a spice farm, exploring the mangroves exploring Stone Town, a forest experience with red colobus monkeys, a trip to the north...
