Mamamapambo is located directly on the beach in Jambiani, as soon as we arrived we had the impression of being welcomed in a special place and we were not disappointed. Everything was special for us, who were on honeymoon, and there was organized a wonderfull private dinner in the flowered garden, lobster, prawns, crabs and giant great champagne. Unforgettable. спасибо

Very friendly hotel on a beautiful sandy beach, we stayed in two different rooms, first without sea view is identical to the ones with sea view, of course, the view is different but it has a very competitive cost, for us who stayed two weeks.The staff is always been very attentive to our needs, transfer from the airport on time...

Mamamapambo is the best place in Jambiani, the location is accurate in every detail, the sumptuous breakfast, the large rooms, clean, nicely decorated in african style, the memorable view from the hammock on our porch will remain deeply in our hearts. Staff attentive and friendly, well-stocked bar and food with great selections.

The 6-room hotel is located in Jambiani, a very quiet and untouristy place in the southeast of Zanzibar. Perfect location at the beach, very personal setting. Nice food, friendly stuff and wonderful atmosphere made it one of the best places we have ever been to! Highly recommended for people who just want to relax and discover a bit from typical... More

My stay at Mamamapambo was a real treat. I spent just a few days there but wish I could've stayed longer! It truly was heaven on earth and the perfect ending to my safari adventure. The staff were extremely accommodating and made my stay really special. As many of the reviews mention, staying at Mamamapambo is like staying with a... More

If you feel like ACTUALLY getting away to a cozy, friendly place this is probably a great choice, great food, comfortable rooms (no air conditioning though) but fans are good. The food is specially great and the people who help around the house are a trip.

If you prefer a big resort with a big swimmingpool and distant from the local community - dont go to Mamamapambo. But if you prefer a cosy, personal and quite place with good food and neighbouring a local village - go here! Beware that it can become very hot and humid on Zanzibar in rainy seasons, we thought that it... More

We are delighted to have found this secluded, intimate and uniquely beautiful hotel. It is a small hotel, with only 6 rooms, and is located in a peaceful, local village. The hotel’s interior is adorned with beautiful ornaments; each carefully selected to create a typical African ambiance blended with the romance of paradise. The exceptional hospitality of the staff invites... More

We enjoyed the friendly people, the good service and the food in Mamamapambo Hotel. It's a good place to relax. We liked the silence and the amazing blue ocean (unfortunately big difference between ebb and flow).

At his small, intimate hotel located at a quiet part of the beach you will wake up to the calming sounds of the ocean (Book the rooms with sea view! Room no 4 is the best!). From the swing beds at the porch you can watch the locals; kids playing with miniature boats, women working with the seaweed plantations &... More
