Mama Mapambo is a lovely boutique hotel with fun and relaxed Italian owners. I stayed for one night in March as part of a short break in Zanzibar. My romantic partner and I walked the length of Jambiani beach looking for a place to stay and knew Mama Mapambo was perfect for us. Each room was individually styled and the en-suite bathrooms were unique and quirky. As it was nearly the end of the season we had a choice of most rooms and opted for a ground floor room overlooking the sea with doors opening onto a small semi-secluded deck leading to the garden. We slept well and awoke to the sound of the waves on the shore. Fabio, Stefania and the staff team made us feel extremely welcome and ensured we had everything we wanted without being fussy. The food and drinks were absolutely delicious. I live on mainland Tanzania and it was a delight to enjoy Italian-inspired locally-sourced fresh dishes, fabulous juices and Italian liquors. The overall vibe was relaxed yet sophisticated beach chic in a down-to-earth and friendly way. I would definitely recommend Mama Mapambo to anybody looking to stay on a chilled beach with good food, fantastic accommodation and great company. I'm looking forward to being there again!
