Mangrove Lodge is beautiful, quiet, clean, efficient, and extremely well-run. We stayed there for 5 days and were sad to leave. Marina and Haji, the owners of the hotel, are wonderful people who made us feel as if we were simply visiting friends at their home. Service was impeccable from the moment we arrived to when we left, if you have spent anytime in Tanzania, you know that is not usually the case...even in 5 star hotels. The food is amazing; breakfast is filled with fresh juice, fresh fruits, mandazis, crepes, and chapatis. There is a menu for lunch and dinner of seafood and pasta, I highly recommend the octopus curry. Haji will arrange for tours and drivers for you so that all you need to do is enjoy your day. The drivers they use are careful and very reasonable in price. I cannot find a single thing wrong with the Mangrove Lodge and would stay here over my usual 4 and 5 star accommodations any time.
