I write this review with still in the mind and heart the memories of a wonderful holiday enjoyed in Jambiani . Mamamapambo is a small hotel where you feel at home, very nice and with a strong African spirit but to live comfortably barefoot. Cristina and Paolo the two Italian owners have an exceptional staff, we spent unforgettable moments with...

The rooms are very nice decorated and each room has a lovely terrace where you can relax. Breakfast was good and enough (fresh juice, fruits, eggs, jam etc). The dinner is a bit expensive compared with the rest of the restaurants in the area and there are not many restaurants around. White sand beach in front of the villa. The...

Really unique property that really highlights it's awesome location alongside a beautiful beach. Jambiani is difficult to negotiate at night due to the lack of lighting but that's not a reason not to go. It's utterly unspoilt. Stay - you won't regret it

If you are looking for a peaceful place with an amazing staff, delicious food and tasty coctails, this is the best place you could ever think of!

Just as we had imagined : a very nice, peaceful, beautiful AND simple place to stay in one of the remaining "wild" places in Zanzibar (the rest of the island is full of resorts). We really enjoyed our stay. Cristina and Paolo where very welcoming and helpful in any of our request as well as the all staff.

First off if you are looking for a beach holiday in Zanzibar Jambiani should be high on your list. It combines a luxury, tropical holiday with an authentic African experience as Jambiani is a village of 6000 local population and you can get a taste of their life and daily existence, In the afternoon and when the tide is out...

Christina and Paolo were nice and welcoming host who were very helpful and made our trip very memorable. I love Jambiani. This our first trip to Zanzibar in Tanzania. The hotel is right by the beach with lovely sceneries is the ebb and flood that dominates and rules the life of the sea in Jambiani. I love Africa

A small Hotel with only 6 rooms led by a nice Italian couple. The rooms are very big, also the bathroom. The area around the Hotel is small so you feel very private but also a little limited. No deckchairs on the Beach but in the garden of the hotel. Food is good.

Great location on the east of the island. Boats and fishermen galore. The room was spotless, the food was amazing and the view cannot be beat. Friendly Italian owners that made us feel right at home. Highly recommend.
