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

stayed here for 3 days after hiking mount kilimanjaro and could not have picked a better place. The staff was impecable, the food outstanding and the location unbeatable. i'm not sure that we could have gotten our room any closer to the beach, it was so peaceful to wake up and hear the waves of the ocean. Great drink/wine/beer selection... More

We had a wonderful time at Mamamapambo Boutique Hotel located directly on the beach of Jambiani. The hotel looks a bit like a mix of a Safari-Lodge and a weed covered indigenous house from the center of the island decorated with artifacts from different African regions. The manager and the staff are very friendly and helpful for any issue you... More

Mamamapambo is not a common place, it is a small hotel with only 6 rooms, the location inside the african village of Jambiani , allows a unique experience of contact with the locals, we were able to observe closely the collection of seaweeds by women of the village, we also went out fishing with the traditional boat discovering the unique...

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.
