This review is long overdue but time goes by fast! My boyfriend and I stayed at Mamampambo after we had spent time in Tanzania climbing Kilimanjaro. We were so pleased we had chosen this hotel, it was the perfect place to relax, very chilled and away from the busy hotels in the North. The Italian owners were extremely welcoming and friendly but not too in your face. Our room was modern with 4 poster bed and nice little touches like chocolates on the beside table and candles, the shower was also great and powerful enough. The owners are happy for you to walk around in your swimwear and no need for footwear as you can walk straight from your room out into the terrace to sunbathe and lounge on the sunbeds. Breakfast was served pretty much when you were ready to get up, tables were already laid out ready for the chef to serve fresh fruits, orange juice and coffee, followed by eggs and toast. The menu for the evening is displayed on a chalk board and evening meals need to be ordered by 11am, the food was amazing, fresh fish everyday and pasta dishes and all delicious, wine and beer also available! The beach is down a few steps and the local children wil always stop by to say hi but if you ignore them they soon leave you alone. Ensure you take enough cash to settle up as there are no cash machines anywhere near by! The owners can also arrange trips if you fancy going snorkelling or to see the mangroves, I would stick with just the snorkelling as the mangroves are a bit of a walk in the baking sun. I would defintiely stay at Mamamapambo again if I ever return to Zanzibar.
