Set a short walk from the beach up on the hill the view of the bay is beautiful. The owners have thought of every detail and the surroundings are traditional and designed for relaxation. African music. Soft cushions and swing beds. The rooms are clean and the beds are huge and comfortable. The beach and the sea are stunning. They... More

We stayed in mangrove for 4 days over New years and were very happy. Marina and her husband as well as all the other staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are big and clean, the kitchen very good (but also very expensive compared to town) and the view during breakfast super nice. The beach is not great and... More

Paradise is not the word I have ever chosen to describe a property. Mangrove Lodge, owners Marin and Haji, and staff, however, earn this superlative descriptor. What other reviewers have written capture much about our 2 night stay. One unique experience, highly worthy of mention, is the hour boat ride with a local fisherman and his mate. We sat on... More

Set in a forest with private access to a perfect beach and a tidal mangrove bay for sunbathing or watching the sunsets, this hotel is owned and run by Marina and Haji and they made us welcome from the start. Individual bungalows for guests were beautifully furnished with clean en suite shower rooms and huge 4 poster beds with mosquito... More

Hotel is in the middle of jungle so during the night its incredible to hear a lot of animals. I would like to mention also about owners, they are the soul of this hotel. Every spot... More

I spent 10 wonderful days at Mabgrove lodge and i felt like living with friends. Marina is adorable, funny, lovely and nice. Haji is also very nice and polite, but because of his work i din´t see him that much. I was sick for one day and Marina and the staff cared for me like real friends. Marina also organized... More

I was staying in a nice and spacious room (no. 4) with fan, a mosquito net at the bed, as well as all windows fitted with fly screens. Every day the bed was nicely decorated with flowers (see photo). However, some might find the bed too soft. The shower had hot water with limited water pressure. The bungalows are situated... More

After being in north of Zanzibar which is quite touristic with long nice beaches, we spent two nights at Mangrove, which was a perfect combination if you like relaxing, beautiful nature and "african" environment! It's close to Stonetown and we even asked a man to take us back by boat at sunset one evening which was very nice! The staff... More
