Not a bad place to stay, its clean, food is good, service is not bad they are quick to resolve any issues. I reccommend availing of their spa services, very well priced and lovely way to relax. The beach at this time of year was not walkable due to coral and seaweed but it was nice to sit back and... More

Spent 14 nights at this hotel. It started a little bad since we didn't get the same room number that we booked, but the receptionist says the new room is better. Getting to our new room, it's located further away from the pool, restaurant and bar, and the hot water was not working. Telling this right away to the receptionist... More

We stayed three nights/4 days at the Mnarani Beach Cottages. In general this is a nice facility, located just outside a village and right on the ocean. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, with a main reception area and then several cottage buildings and a newer condo like building all situated within steps of the water. The bar was...

The place is not worth the money that you pay.The mosquito net was full of dead bodies of different animals, I calculated at least 30 and added them 10 more in two nights.The breakfast that they give is very poor and the dinner average. The waitress are not friendly nor helpful.and the service was so slow so that I felt... More

We have booked a Standard Room for 3 weeks (21/01/2014 to 12/02/2014) and our booking was immediately confirmed. All of the personnel was very friendly and helpful, also smaller problems were solved by the reception immediately and very kindly. Everything we expected from our trip was fullfilled: we had a very nice and small hotel with a great familiar atmosphere,... More

It was wonderful lying in a hammock on the deck, rocking in the wind, and enjoying the view of the blue ocean. This is a quiet hotel-not for any one seeking a lively nightlife- but you can do water sports if you want. We were on half board, and the meals were fine, but be prepared for Swahili buffets. Staff... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Mnarani Beach cottages. The staff was friendly and help full and the food was good. It was clean and comfortable and there was lots to do. You can walk to different bars and other hotels and the Hotel organizes tours and has canoes that you can rent that is very nice to do.

Stayed for 4 nights after a tiring safari. It was clean, quiet and the suite was large and comfortable. Beautiful view from my balcony of the ocean. A very nice place. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to help me retrieve my iPad after I had left it in a taxi.

We stayed in Zanzibar a week, from that 3 nights at Mnarani, garden cottage. The room was tiny but well kept. Halfboard was very good, dinners were delicious and big. We only had lunch there once and it was tragic...cheesburger came without cheese and a salad was mainly a whole onion. The waiter had very limited english which was frustrating.... More
