Every time I've been Jambiani I'm usually next door Red Monkey but this time I was invited to check out the Acoustic Mondays and since then I just fell in love with the place. The staff is friendly and the food is really really good. I didn't sleep there but my friends who spent 2 nights there highly recommended the... More

We stayed for ten nights in a sea view bungalow. Every night we fell asleep to the sound of the waves and woke up each morning with the sun rising just outside our room. The rooms are clean and have everything you need but no luxury. The staff is super friendly and help you with all your questions and needs.... More

We stayed here with my wife for 3 nights, we were able to get a room even though we didn't book in advance. The beach is very beautiful here - the hotel is in a nice location that has a good access to the water, even on low tide. Even though there was a nice view from the restaurant area,... More

We arrived tired and stepped out of the car to the most amazing view....the sun was just going down and the beach which faces to the east just looked fantastic. Unfortunately there was a problem with our rooms - two couples but we were sent along the beach a little to a Beach House, which wasn't quite what we expected... More

The Red Monkey Lodge is for sure the most beautiful, hospitable and friendly place I have ever visited. The view from the beach is like nothing I have ever seen :) The hospitality and kindness of the staff was unbelievable. I would absolutely recommend it to everyone!!

Red monkey lodge has a great view, good location, very helpful staff, beautiful and clean bungalows on the beach, we totally recommend it for vacation on Jambiani beach. The beach itself is phenomenal with the tide, white sand, amazing water!

The Red Monkey Lodge team was helpful and welcoming, the hotel clean and comfortable, and the food delicious. Who could ask for anything more?! I also had a great time playing with local and traveling musicians alike during their Monday jam session.

Perfect end to a 3 month holiday in Africa. White sand beaches, perfect weather, clean, comfortable rooms, absolutely delicious food, lovely, friendly and helpful staff. Barefoot and Lazy is there motto....and well we definitely lived by that! 5 nights here, never wearing shoes, lazing around watching the waves and reading a book from their bookcase selection, fresh fruit and juice...

We spent a couple of days here in March 2014 when we were staying elsewhere in Jambiani. The atmosphere was very welcoming, staff was friendly and we just lazed around an entire afternoon (apparently "barefoot and lazy" is their motto - i can only subscribe to that!), nibbling on delicious lunch snacks, having latte macchiato (the good coffee must be...

First off, I am a very spoiled and finicky traveler. I travel for a living and spend more than 150 nights a year in Western and non-Western hotels. I booked the Red Monkey Beach Lodge based on the Trip Advisors reviews. Upon arrival, I was a bit apprehensive as this was definitely out of my normal element. The accommodations are... More
