I stayed here with my parents in Nov 2015 for 5 nights and had a lovely time. Couldn't fault Rama, Mr. Stonefish and Habib for how helpful they were and loved staying right by the beach, Jambiani was a great choice too, very peaceful and quiet - brilliant few days post safari! The minor negatives were that the rooms at... More

You just don't end up in Jambiani guesthouse by accident. I stayed here due to strong recommendation of my wife who had been there back in 2012 with her friends. She had thoroughly enjoyed her stay back then. And so did my friends and I. To begin i got in touch with the owner of the place through email and... More

I recently spent a wonderful week at Jambiani Guesthouse. I was there with a group of friends and we rented the whole house. It was just fantastic. Unlike many places that you book on the net where the photos are misleading and you feel disappointed when you arrive this place met or exceeded all our expectations. The location couldn’t be...

Jambiani Guesthouse is situated right on the beach and there is a perfect atmosphere with the indian ocean and the palm trees, right in front of you. The staff in the guesthouse are friendly people, very helpful. The house was clean, but please dont do your laundry there. Although they offer this service and they charged us for that, the... More

The staff at Jambiani guesthouse are fabulous! We spent 2 nights there and I would love to spend more. We stayed in a room without a bathroom inside but there are several very clean bathrooms just down the hall with hot water and flush toilets. The hotel is right on the beach. Clean rooms, great staff, absolutely stunning beach. Besides... More

We spent three lovely days in Jambiani Villa, Zanzibar, Staff was friendly, food was good and sea so green! Even if in Stone Town (western coast) there was raining, on the eastern coast it was still sunny all the time. It is really fantastic place to stay, even if it was too hot for northern people like us :-)!

I had a perfect stay at Jambiani guesthouse, right next to the ocean, the location could not be better. The caretaker spoke very good english and was very helpful with everything, especially when giving tips on what to do in Jambiani and the whole island. Very nice house clean and local atmosphere.

I have come to the Jambiani Guesthouse several times and will keep coming back. The house and rooms are clean and well kept. The location is the greatest possible right on the Indian Ocean facing the sunrise every morning. The house has a small front yard with a beautiful veranda from where to observe the sea and the local life.... More
