Annan, United Kingdom

Just back from a weeks stay at the diamonds mapenzi, couldn't recommend it enough.. stunning beach setting, delicious foods and attentive staff. Visited with my husband and we spent majority of our time on the beach, hawkers can be persistent but say "Jambo" humour them and you'll have no hassle. Sea is shallow and very warm just perfect ! Pizza restaurant on beach is worth a visit we had the sea food pizzas which were delicious. Good quality local spirits and beers, mini bar in room which is replenished regularly. All in all would highly recommend this hotel.

Another day in paradise

Vienna, Austria

Staying 12 days in Mapenzi Beach Resort, Enjoyed all the amenities, perfect service, fresh and delicious food, as well as an incredible 'warm’ care. The leisure activities are varied, during the day and in the evening, you can do everything but the requests are discreet and if you get up for aqua aerobics, shortly after breakfast it is very funny. We have made excursions (Stone Town, Spice Tour, Safari Blue) highly recommended. And there are many little things, such as daily fresh flowers in the room - you can really feel welcome here. If you wanna get a glue of paradise - go to Mapenzi Sansibar
