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 the beach, there isn't much else to do in the town but the beach and ocean offer plenty of entertainment. We organized a trip on a dhow, a wooden sailboat, through Jambiani Guesthouse and it was excellent. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Included bathroom is not necessary

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.
The staff is very friendly and ready to help you with everything from laundry to tour planning.
In general a great place to stay for your holiday in Zanzibar!
