I recently spent a wonderful week at Jambiani Guesthouse. I was there with a group of friends and we rented the whole house. It was just fantastic. Unlike many places that you book on the net where the photos are misleading and you feel disappointed when you arrive this place met or exceeded all our expectations. The location couldn’t be...

We spent three lovely days in Jambiani Villa, Zanzibar, Staff was friendly, food was good and sea so green! Even if in Stone Town (western coast) there was raining, on the eastern coast it was still sunny all the time. It is really fantastic place to stay, even if it was too hot for northern people like us :-)!

I had a perfect stay at Jambiani guesthouse, right next to the ocean, the location could not be better. The caretaker spoke very good english and was very helpful with everything, especially when giving tips on what to do in Jambiani and the whole island. Very nice house clean and local atmosphere.

I have come to the Jambiani Guesthouse several times and will keep coming back. The house and rooms are clean and well kept. The location is the greatest possible right on the Indian Ocean facing the sunrise every morning. The house has a small front yard with a beautiful veranda from where to observe the sea and the local life.... More
