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 friend -- so much warmth, hospitality, and personalized touches.
The food was also excellent -- fresh and tasty! The homemade jam is incredible!! The cocktails were quite good as well, but can be expensive. They offer a variety of different tours and activities (e.g. snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, etc.) - lots of options for those that want to explore the island a bit more. I spent most of my time laying around in the sun beds which was delightful. :) It's very peaceful but it's also situated in a neighborhood with families and children so sometimes you will encounter children selling sweets but nothing too disturbing.
I stayed in Room 6 with a perfect little veranda overlooking the beach. There's no air conditioning, only a fan - so it can get warm at night. If you open up the windows you can get a nice breeze going. The room was very spacious, with a waterfall shower in the bathroom -- really fantastic! I also loved the decor of the entire place, so charming.
My only regret is not staying longer, I would definitely go back and stay there again! A big thank you to the Mamamapambo staff for such a lovely holiday!!
