We stayed in this place for a week in August 2012. We did some research beforehand and decided to stay on Jambiani beach. We then came across this little boutique hotel. I can only say that we were so lucky to have found this place and to have been able to stay there. The place is just amazing. It's no ordinary place. The rooms are all special and nicely designed, each piece of furniture and decoration in the room is well thought through and tasteful. The rooms are big and very comfortable. The food they offer is of superb quality. We travelled quite a bit in Tanzania and we can honestly say that the quality of the rooms, the food and the price is a good value for money. It's not the cheapest, but it's fair for what you get in return. We did not stay in a room with a sea view, but it didn't matter at all because the beach is just there as you step out of the room and there's a little terrace area just facing the sea where you can relax and enjoy the sun without even leaving the hotel premises. Lastly, we would like to mention that the hosts were super welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. They really made us feel welcomed and like part of their life there :-) We wish to go back there someday. So anyone thinking of where to stay in Zanzibar, we recommend first of all to stay away from parts of the island that are filled with big tourist resorts and to go with something a lot more special and closer to local life like the Jambiani beach, and secondly to stay in Mamamapambo. You won't regret it!
