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.

I absolutely loved this place. Six rooms only which makes it very secluded. Its an hour drive from the airport and the center of the city. The staff are very friendly and amazing. The food was okay not great though. The neighborhood is basically a village which gives you great interaction with the locals. The rooms are clean and airconditioned....

The restaurant offers a different menu every night...

After climbing Kilimanjaro and adventuring out on a Safari we wanted to relax a few days before heading back home. We chose Mamamapambo for a five day stay and it turned out to be a great choice for wrapping up our vacation. The large, comfortable rooms overlooking the ocean are tastefully decorated. The location is right on the beach and...

We stayed one night at this lovely place. The room (Nr. 2) was clean and one of the largest on our whole trip through Zanzibar. The breakfast was delicous and the service perfect. The only negative thing was the noise in the night and in the morning. Our room was unfortunately near the reception and so the night end around...
