Wow! If you want a secluded quite romantic getaway... This is the place. It was a dream! You'd get consulted daily or however often you wanted on what you fancied eating. Anything from authentic Zanzibari food to Spanish, English, American or let them surprise you. Plenty of fresh exotics and usual fruits as well. We went with our two girls... More

The Mangrove Lodge is a very pleasant hotel in a beautiful setting, giving access to a small estuary where the tides and the mangroves set the scene and fisherfolk, village children mix with tourists and visitors. The shady gardens (trees, flowers) also give access to a beautiful sunset beach, Nearby, at walking distance, are the picturesque 'ruins' of another lodge,... More

Shelley welcomed us with a nice juice. Everything was handled with care and attention. The grounds are incredible, well kept, and a perfect getaway if you are looking for some romantic two-time. The rooms are spacious and have a beautiful cozy design. Thank you!

A avery price-worthy eco-lodge at the west coast of Zanzibar, not too far away (North) of Stone Town. Nice atmosphere is created by the Italian/Zanzibarian owner couple. I could not find a more comfortable and ideal place to explore Zanzibar than this one for 50US$ per night (!)

If you want to stay at a place which portrays the true Zanzibari spirit and that is respectful of both the social and natural environment, then this is the place for you. Mangrove Eco Lodge is everything we imagined; peaceful, beautiful with friendly staff and owners and an excellent restaurant on site (as well as ice cold beer and wine!).... More

Although we visited outside the formal tourist season we were very well looked after. Haji, Marina and their staff provided us with a wonderful few days of relaxing. The bungalows are set in forest and there is easy access to both the mangroves and a sandy beach which is the perfect spot to watch the sunset. The road from the... More

The staff were really friendly and the lodges were nice! It was close to the beach, although the beaches on the east side are much better than those on the west side of Zanzibar. They had their own area at the beach, with beds and shade. The whole hotel was situated in a "jungle" environment. It was quite far from... More

Set a short walk from the beach up on the hill the view of the bay is beautiful. The owners have thought of every detail and the surroundings are traditional and designed for relaxation. African music. Soft cushions and swing beds. The rooms are clean and the beds are huge and comfortable. The beach and the sea are stunning. They... More

We stayed in mangrove for 4 days over New years and were very happy. Marina and her husband as well as all the other staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are big and clean, the kitchen very good (but also very expensive compared to town) and the view during breakfast super nice. The beach is not great and... More
