Few rooms, cleaning and care in every detail, the African style is breathed in every corner of this beautiful hotel. Excellent cuisine, offering dishes of fresh fish every day and the delicious buffet of traditional cuisine in organized beach. Convenient service from the airport and... More

We had a nice feel of Zanzibar at mamamapambo. We interacted with friendly locals, and felt like we belonged there. Staff was warm and friendly, and the food was very good.... Basically we had a nice time.

I was drawn to Jambiani and the Mamamapambo Hotel online and was not disappointed. After two weeks of fantastic but exhausting safari traveling, the Mamamapambo was a perfect oasis. My room was private with a large deck with hanging chaises overlooking the beach and I spent hours relaxing here while enjoying the local activity, such as women collecting seaweed at... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights after safari. The hotel itself is nice and right on the beach. Staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. Dinner was very overpriced by comparison to other local restaurants, where the food was just as nice and if not better. It was disappointing that there were no tea or coffee making... More

This hotel is a nice construction organised around a quiet patio. The house is beautiful in line with typical zanzibari architecture. The rooms are spacious with AC and nicely built. The hotel is right on the beach. Great fusion food – though portions could be a little bigger. Held by a lovely Italian couple who know about food and service!... More
