The rooms are very clean and have everything you need, including your own bathroom. The location is excellent: directly at the beach with a perfect view onto the amazing ocean. The staff were very helpful... More

We, a group of three couples stayed for a week in July 2014. After a drive of an hour from Stone Town we arrived at the inconspicuous small gate of the hotel. Since we booked in advance we already got welcomed by the new managers of the hotel. We got told that after the recent change of ownership and management... More

Amazing place with great beach and perfect for families with small kids. The Bar is amazing and the staff was great. The rooms are super clean, have a shower and toilet. The restaurant is set back from the beach and offers great individual meals. Best place for long time. Definite recommendation.

My wife and I stayed here for four weeks in January and February 2014. Strengths: • Fantastic position directly on the beach, but just some meters away from the maximum high tide that allows the structure to avoid the risk of being flooded by exceptionally high tides, which frequently happen (such a risk is taken by the 90 % of...

I'm very confused by these previous reviews that convinced us to book this hotel. Apart from the hospitable driver that picked us up the place was dreadful. Our room had stained curtains, stained ceilings, cockroaches in the bathroom, ants all over the bedroom floor, no lock for the safe, the window shutters didn't close properly, cold showers, holes in the...

Luxury hotel : pay and enjoy your breakfast. One of a kind place : enjoy the conversation. The stories. And every moment of it. 25 years ago, a young German woman from Hanover was the first European to open a hotel, six bungalows rather, in Jambiani on Zanzibar East coast. "Malice" aka Marlies Lehmann, is still alive and kicking today.... More

Jambiani beach Hotel is a neat pin. The staff is supportive and mostly warm. We had our own custom breakfast that wasn't in their menu since they are BB hotel. The rooms are spacious something you would need when in a beach environment, you wouldnt want sand all over your resting sanctuary. If there is a place to be in... More
