Recently returned from this lovely boutique hotel. For complete relaxation and comfort I could not have found better. The staff were so attentive and kind keeping all areas of the hotel immaculate. I ate in the hotel each of the nights I stayed and found the food delicious and always well presented. Although I did not do any trips these...

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...

Rooms are beautifully decorated. It's not too crowed as there are six rooms to accommodate. The hotel sits right in front of the beach though during quiet season not many people can be seen swimming in the water as it can get quite rough in the evening. The staff are friendly and very attentive. Our room did not have an...

The room where we stayed on the first floor fills the soul with its African spirit, waking up each morning to the sound of the waves and see the Indian Ocean with its incredibi color has no price. Great service from a staff always attentive and well organized, considering...

We stayed at Mamamapambo in the beginning of our memorable 2-week journey in Tanzania. We really loved every minute of our stay in this area of Jambiani village. The views are just breathtaking, with low and high tides making your every glance at the ocean absolutely unique. The rooms are big, tastefully decorated and comfortable. There are quite a few...

Fantastic stay after a week safari in northern Tanzania parks. Mamamapambo and his staff have been for us the best end of our holiday, after the efforts of the safari we were pampered with all the attention. Small hotel and well cared in all aspects, really very good food served in the romantic restaurant space. Jambiani is very quiet village...
