"Now one of my favourite destinations!"
I have been meaning to post this review for weeks after a lovely holiday at Mapenzi Beach ( We were there in August). The beach villa was lovely, spacious, clean and attended to twice a day. The view of white sand and palm trees is great but donâ€™t think you are at the same level as the sea, you walk down some steps to beach and sea. Be prepared to get pestered every time you venture near the wall/steps or down onto the beach, but if you just say you do not want or you already have they will mostly leave you alone (no one is aggressive in any way). We made some purchases early on and got a guide to take us out on the reef and we could genuinely say we had done or had and they were fine and the guys we bought off remembered us and just greeted us every day. The food was good and even though I am a fussy eater there was always something I could find to eat. The beach and pool barbecue nights were great when they would completely move the restaurant down to the sand or pool area. Wine was drinkable (Iâ€™ve had worse) and there was a good selection of cocktails, you could even get them to adapt or make something new for you, Gin and Tonics can be recommended! The resort does seem to be aimed at the Italians and as such the animation team is made up of three Italians who seem to be in charge and then some local team members employed by the hotel. At first we felt a little ignored as in our first week we were the only Brits there and the Italian animators would walk past and ignore us. It was only after David one of the animation team started talking to us every day that the Italians actually stopped ignoring us! David was great, he took the time to get to know us and even tried to help out when I got a little poorly getting aloe vera for me and coconut water. He was obviously hard working, took the time to talk to all guests whatever their nationality and enjoyed his work. We pre-booked our trips from a company called â€˜Zanzibar Differentâ€™ and had our own personal guide for our trips to Stone Town, Jozani Forest and Spice Tour all of which were great. We also did Cheetahs Rock which I cannot recommend enough! My husband is a diver and also enjoyed his dives which were arranged through the hotel. The staff make this resort, David, John at the bar, Ali at reception and all the cleaners and beach guys. Always happy to help, always smiling and greeting you as you pass them by. After booking a Zanzibar holiday we were a little worried after reading some reviews about safety when out and about and the condition of the hotel. We should not have worried, we felt perfectly safe in Stone Town and when travelling around the island and loved the hotel! We would definitely recommend this resort and go back another year despite us usually wanting to explore new destinations. "Hakuna Matata" Thanks everyone for a super holiday!
"Wonderful relaxing break after safari"
This is the second time we have stayed here. We are just back from 10 nights all inclusive. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The animation team were great and I liked the Zumba and water gym. I stayed with my husband here after a great safari in the Selous. The hotel was spotlesslessly clean and the staff worked very hard. They always had a smile on their faces and a friendly Jambo welcome whenever you met them. The location is perfect. Right on a beautiful sandy beach and the water colour was amazing. Thanks to everyone for a wonderful time. We will be back again.
"Perfect end to an African holiday"
My family and I spent a few nights here at the end of a long South African holiday, and it was just what we needed. We stayed in one of the beach villas (highly recommended). We arrived late at night to find that the resort was still holding the buffet open so that we could get dinner that night. We were extremely grateful as we had spent a long day traveling and we were famished. Let me say that the food was plentiful and delicious! We never had a bad meal the entire time that we were there (except the boxed lunches to go that we ordered to take on a yacht cruise on our last day, which were not very good). On our first night, after dinner when we were finally taken to our cottages, we were greeted with the sights and sounds of the Indian Ocean lazily lapping the short sea wall which extended right outside our front porches. The following morning, we awakened to beautiful vistas of white sandy beaches and the sea at low tide. A walk along the beach revealed all kinds of sea life, including octopus, star fish, sea cucumbers, small sand crabs, and sea urchins. There were also â€œbeach boys,â€ locals who relentlessly attempt to sell you their goods/ souvenirs. They were a bit of a nuisance at times but not aggressive in any way. The resort posted security guards to prevent them from coming onto the premises and to rescue any tourist that had become overwhelmed with their constant sale tactics. We mostly rested while at the resort. The rooms were good. We had A/C and ceiling fans. There are mosquito nets surrounding the beds. The bathrooms are large. My only suggestion to management would be to invest in some bleach spray to use around the bottom of the shower tile. There was some mildew, but it was not a deal breaker. Otherwise,the rooms were nice and clean. The wait staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room safe didn't work, but we had no valuables stolen. It's truly a relaxing little paradise. I celebrated my 50th birthday there. The restaurant staff set up a special table for us during dinner, brought out a birthday cake complete with candles, and sang a Swahili birthday song to me. It was a nice and unexpected gesture on the part of the resort. We really enjoyed our time there.
"Incredible surroundings and great style"
This location and hotel is soooo beautiful! The hotel style integrates itself perfectly into the island's scenery and African feel. Nothing was out of place. Not having a TV in the room may come as a disadvantage for some travelers, but we enjoyed it so much since we had detached from our daily routine and focused in soaking in the relaxing experience. The food was good, but it had little variety at breakfast and had too few local dishes, or near to none. We would have enjoyed eating more local and not so much Italian food. The personal was lovely and very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed interacting with them very much. The management was very helpful as well and tried to solve all the problems in the best interest of the guest, but in the same time, they had large fees for any additional service. If you can, try to not forget any medicine at home, since this is Africa and the hotel doctor charges 60$ for a 10 minute visit and 10$ for any kind of medicine (10$ for Ibuprofen which cost about 0.3 $ cents in local pharmacy, and 10$ for 3 days of antibiotics - which it is known that it is not enough). The good thing is there is a hotel doctor that you can see, if you need one. All in all it was a great trip and we would return at this hotel anytime.
"Great Chillout Experience after Kenyan Safari"
We arrived at Diamonds Mapenzi after a fantastic 5 day Kenyan Safari. After the early morning game drives and substantial road journeys between each safari location (we went to Aberdare, Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara), we were really looking forward to relaxing and chilling out, and Diamonds Mapenzi was just the ticket! We were travelling with our 2 sons aged 11 & 13 and arranged for 2 Garden Rooms side by side. The rooms were well equipped and extremely clean. Mind you the built in hairdryers aren't great, which didn't bother me, but if you need precision to style your hair, using a dryer, bring your own (a small criticism). There were 2 UK sockets in each of our rooms however if you need to use more than that, you need to bring adapters (or ask at the cashier) as Zanzibar standard power sockets are not the same as Kenya/UK. Each room has a safe which is easy to use and free i.e. no deposit required. Every day our lovely maids decorated our beds with flowers from the gardens which was a nice touch. Absolutely ALL the staff, without exception, were very friendly and welcoming and genuinely looked happy in their work, which was refreshing. When ever we travel to a new location abroad we always make the effort to try and learn some basic phrases from that Country's mother tongue, so we learned very basic Swahili at safari e.g. Jambo-hello, Asante Sana-thank you very much, Kweheri -goodbye, Habari Gana- How are you, Nsuri Sana -very good. I really think it makes a difference when you make the effort to talk in the host's language even if it's extremely minimal like we were, and I think the staff etc appreciate the effort too. Ali in reception couldn't do enough and was always happy to assist with any requests or questions. Mohammed in the Beach Bar was a pure tonic! Good barman and great company! John & Hussain (Trainee) always looked after us well at the pool bar but all the barmen are great at their cocktails and our boys can thoroughly recommend the variety of non alcoholic fruit cocktails made for them during our stay. The Pool boys were so attentive in their role keeping the pool area clean and tidy and providing towels etc. There is a $25 deposit charge for the towels-you get a towel card, per towel, from the cashier by reception and each day you swap the card for a towel with the pool boys and when you return the towel(s) they give you your card back for use the next day. At the end of your holiday, unless you return these cards to the cashier, you'll be charged the deposit fee. Fair enough and it works well. The food, and variety, was delicious. Location of restaurant overlooking the pool and beach grounds area was so relaxing and very pleasant to enjoy each meal. Service very good & efficient. Each week the restaurant hosts an African theme night on the beach area and a Pool Gala Dinner. The effort and work that goes into setting up these evenings is quite astonishing! Basically the whole buffet/kitchen moves to these locations for each of these evenings not to mention the seating and tables etc. The Pizza dinner, that you need to book a day in advance and is served down by the beach bar, was gorgeous, but be warned; the pizzas are huge we couldn't finish ours, so make sure you're fine and hungry before that meal! Also, on the subject of pizza, they cook some pizzas around 5pm each day at the beach bar and they bring up a few to the pool bar and the beach bar so that you can help yourselves to a slice or 2 (or 8 in my Pizza head son's case!!). it took us a few days to figure this out and they were always gone by the time we discovered them, so just so you're in the know! The beach area has plenty sunbeds and mattresses are provided. There's usually a very pleasant breeze down there, where as the pool area is hotter with less breeze, so it's nice to have the option. Beach boys are keen to sell you so many wears. They're harmless and friendly and we bought almost all of our gifts & momentos from the shack shops on the beach, but as ever be prepared to haggle- mind you, a lot of work goes into many of the items and Zanzibar is a poor country so my motto is pay what YOU think it's worth rather than trying to work out a percentage etc. And also look around before you buy the first thing you see/like. As an example- I paid $7 for a lovely Sarong. We used Ali-Baba on the beach for a fantastic snorkeling trip. He arranges all sorts of trips and we would thoroughly recommend him, and he's much cheaper than formal tours. The Security by the beach is good - they're vigilant, and do ask the beach boys to back off when they get too close to the small wall. The tide goes way out in the morning but comes back all the way in during the afternoon . When it's well in, it's really safe and enjoyable to swim in, as it's sand underfoot. The animation team are great at getting activities going but don't apply pressure at all, which is nice. We played beach volleyball as a family practically every day which was great fun. There weren't many kids when we were there, but our boys did hook up with a couple around their own age, and the animation lads were great - looking for them each day and getting them involved in activity e.g soccer/pool etc. In other words, our boys were spoiled with the attention which was a treat! One of the Animation team invited us to go for a casual visit to the local fishing village just up the beach from the hotel. We did, but be prepared for the poverty. We bought a big bag of lollipops for the kids, but became swamped very quickly. They were so excited and keen to get one they started coming from all directions. It was a good idea, with the best of intentions on our part, but not sure it was the wisest idea, as we soon ran out of lollipops and felt really rotten for the little ones who didn't get one. We also visited the school and the hospital, where we were invited to give a small donation. If you can fit anything in your luggage that would benefit the school, I would recommend you do i.e. paper, pencils,pens, chalk etc etc. We also brought a soccer ball and a pump to blow it up and gave it away, as they're mad into soccer in that part of the world. With regard to currency/cash, we brought $'s, as was recommended by our Agent, but didn't think to bring some in small denominations i.e. $5's & $10's (we only had $20's & $50's on arrival to Africa) which was a pain when we wanted/needed to tip (which was only when we used transport-transfer to/from airport, porters etc) & to give donations. So make sure you bring some smaller notes. A mention to the mozzies; there are plenty although we didn't see or hear them, I was eaten alive on my legs/feet even after using repellent! I don't normally get bitten but on this trip I must've been tastier than usual!! As long as you don't give into the temptation to scratch it's no big deal, just a bit unsightly on the legs! (oh, and by the way, I got no less than 8 bites on the plane returning home Zanzibar -Adis Abiba -Dublin, so I suggest apply repellent for your flight home!) In summary, Diamonds Mapenzi is very relaxing, with a warm and welcoming environment; provides a very efficient service in a pleasantly understated manner. As a family, we would thoroughly recommend Diamonds Mapenzi and are definitely hoping to return soon to enjoy the experience again! Thanks to all at Diamonds and for those of you reading this already going, or thinking about going, go and enjoy!!
