"Best holiday ever"
Weâ€™ve just returned from Zanzibar Diamonds Mapenzi Beach resort. We went on our own. This is excellent hotel. Hotel staff is very pleasant.The rooms were very clean, fresh towels every day. Every room had air condition, but there was no need for this, only sometimes to dry our stuff. Very big bed 2x2m with baldachin. WiFi was not available in the room but in other parts of the hotel it was available. In such a paradise, internet is not needed. In the hotel there was most of Italians and Germans.There was few people French, Dutch, English and Poland. But all the staff spoke a range of languages. Food was always a buffet in the main restaurant, beach area and pool once per week, and it was excellent. Mix of European and African cuisine with a lot of choices. Everything we tried was very good. There was also a catch of a day, fresh fish. Beach was 5 min away from our room, very peaceful. There was a low and high tide, when the low tide time is, the sea is away about 2km, but then you can go and see shells and sea stars in many colors. Only boring thing were the beach boys, but in a few days, they left us alone. We had best holiday ever. Thank you Mapenzi for everything! We would like to go back.
"Great holiday in a good hotel in a lovely location"
Weâ€™ve just returned from a week at the Diamonds Mapenzi Beach resort. Overall this was a great hotel. Iâ€™ve provided some feedback both for other travellers and for hotel management. The hotelâ€™s own website gives a good overview of the facilities. The hotel sits in its own grounds and has a mix of spread-out garden and beach villa guest accommodation. The garden villas are set back from the beach on sloping ground around the main/reception block, and the beach villas are on a large area of level sand which ends in a 6â€™ retaining wall with several steps down to the actual beach. The main block has the reception, bar, pool area, guest shop, massage rooms, gym, entertainment, and relaxation areas, with a large restaurant attached. The building style is traditional/rustic with whitewashed walls and palm-frond roof tiles over a timber (tree branch) frame. The hotel is in a great location with well-tended gardens, the sandy area is swept every day, and thereâ€™s a lovely aqua blue vista out to sea Most guest suites are semi-detached (two suites per villa building) although some are three and perhaps four. Each guest suite has its own bathroom. We were in #114, which was in a good location - very close to the main block, yet away from the noise in the evenings. While the rooms were lovely, the bed (at least in our villa) was only 6â€™ long. As Iâ€™m 6â€™ tall, it meant that when lying down with my head on the pillow my feet hung over the raised bar at the end of the bed â€“ this was uncomfortable, and I donâ€™t understand why the bed was so short. The hotel catered mainly to Italians, then Germans. Probably 50% of the guests were Italian, 30% German, and the rest a mix of French, Dutch, English and other nationalities. But all the staff spoke a range of languages. Food was always a buffet in the main restaurant, and it was excellent. There was a great selection, with salads, pasta, vegetables, various meat and fish dishes, a freshly cooked fish and meat station for the catch of the day as well as chicken, beef, lamb or pork, plus delicious deserts. It all tasted great, the house wine and local beer was OK, and the table service was of a high standard. Staff were always welcoming. You could also eat at the beach bar/restaurant, but we didnâ€™t try this. On one day the main restaurant moved down to the beach area where the volleyball court normally sits, and on another to around the pool, which created some great dining experiences. Resort hotels are often judged on the quality of their food and drink, and we thoroughly enjoyed every meal. Thank you to the chefs, kitchen and waiting staff who did such a good job! The hotelâ€™s beach area extends some way from the main hotel building down to the actual beach, with the volleyball court area and a beach bar in the centre, with all the beach villas scattered around it under tall palm trees. The actual public beach below the hotel grounds was probably the best stretch of beach all along the shoreline compared to the other hotels, with soft sand some way out. Because it was so shallow, when the tide is out you can walk around 800m out to the fringing reef â€“ but take beach shoes, as there are a large number of sea urchins further out that are covered in sharp spines. When the tide is in, itâ€™s like being in a warm bath. The sandy bottom results in the aqua-blue colour of the water, and with the golden sand and small trees for shade, it was picture perfect! However when the tide is out there are a large number of â€œbeach boysâ€ (â€fake masaiâ€) who gather all along the beach, especially around this hotel. There are hotel security guards whose job it is to stop these locals coming into the hotel grounds. However it doesnâ€™t stop them from constantly looking over the retaining wall at guests on their sun loungers, trying to engage in dialogue with them, and offering them anything from cheap excursions to cigarettes or painted wicker bags. The hotelâ€™s security team was not a strict as those at some other resorts along the beach who prevented the beach boys from coming anywhere near the resortâ€™s boundary. The problem came as soon as we walked down onto the beach beyond the wall. We were surrounded by these beach boys, all hassling us. If you walk along the beach, you will be pursued by them trying to shake your hand and engage in dialogue, all aimed at getting you do give them money as the endgame. If you walk out to sea to try and get away from them, you then get them coming up to you to act as â€œguidesâ€ so as to avoid the coral â€“ there is no coral, itâ€™s just another scam to try and engage with you. The situation wasnâ€™t helped by members of the small Italian â€œanimationâ€ team who worked closely with the beach boys to organize things like walks along the beach to visit a local village, and it probably made the security teamâ€™s job that much harder. It also took money away from the hotel, as lost revenue from excursions. Most of the animation team generally avoided us, apart from a recent arrival Roberto who made a real effort to engage with every guest irrespective of nationality Weâ€™d read in advance about some of these beach boys, especially â€œAli Babaâ€ and â€œJames Bondâ€. I met Ali Baba on our first day when he came up and introduced himself, and over time realized that he really did have 40 thieves in tow. He was a skilled salesperson, and I watched him identifying new prospects (guests) and assigning them to individual beach boys who would then try and engage them in conversation. A highly organized and orchestrated activity all geared towards getting guests to part with their cash. I admired him for his entrepreneurial spirit and understand how he saw us tourists as a legitimate target, however the constant mobbing by the beach boys was a real turn-off, and we wouldnâ€™t travel to the same area again as a result of this. The hotel watersports centre was good, and run by someone whose name I canâ€™t remember other than it started with M. Heâ€™s been at the hotel for 8 years, the first two by the pool and the last 6 down on the beach. He and his team brought out mattresses for guests every day for the sun loungers, and took them away in the evening. He was an excellent sailor, and took people out for a 30 min free induction/assessment sail on the catamaran or laser dinghy. The hotel has a good range of cocktails â€“ however these are all international ones, like Daiquiris and Pina Coladas. There were no fruit or syrup based cocktails that you would get in places like the Caribbean, despite the plentiful supply of fruit, and I think the hotel has missed a trick here. They could create some â€œZanzibarâ€ or even â€œMapenzi Beachâ€ signature cocktails. Plus there were no paper coasters, so drinks served cold in a glass would produce water droplets through condensation that ran down onto the table â€“ or onto your shorts or skirt. A simple thing to address. We noticed that the main/pool bar staff werenâ€™t that attentive. If you ordered at the bar, you got served quickly. If however you sat down at a table, it sometimes took a long time for someone to come and take your drinks order and then to deliver the drinks. Service at the beach bar was much better. We attended a couple of the eveningâ€™s entertainment sessions, however when we did go to bed reasonably early we were kept awake by the booming bass beat of the â€œentertainmentâ€ until 11pm most nights. Given the nature of the resort and the average age of the guests, the entertainment could have been more appropriate, however it seemed at times that the Italian Animation team thought they were still in Ibiza. We arrived at the hotel after 21 hours of travel, door to door. So were tired, and found it hard to take in all the details we were briefed on at check-in. Iâ€™m not sure if reception staff appreciate that some guests will be completely exhausted on arrival. Weâ€™d arrived before normal check-in time, however the hotel gave us a room almost immediately which was good of them. Our travel provider hadnâ€™t made it clear to us that Zanzibar has a high-risk of malaria, and so we didnâ€™t take any anti-malaria drugs in advance. However we did see mosquitos there and were probably bitten by some. The sun was fierce, and like many guests from much colder European countries we didnâ€™t take sufficient care to protect again sunburn initially. So suffered a little on the first day or two. Weâ€™ve stayed in hotels where they provide specific warnings to guests, and perhaps the hotel should do this with a placard in each room (that could also cover the malaria point above and encourage guests to always use the mosquito nets over the bed). While applying sunscreen is of course an individual responsibility, the hotel could warn people that as Zanzibar is close to the equator the sun is much stronger than most guests will be used to. It was hard to tip every member of staff individually â€“ and as it was an all-inclusive resort few people tipped for every service. However at the end of the week we asked the reception staff if we could leave a tip that would be shared across all the staff. We were told we could, and so left a substantial tip with one of the reception staff â€“ and would like to think that it was shared with all staff. The hotel could make this practice more transparent, perhaps having a secure metal tip box by reception that is emptied every day. In summary, we had a great holiday in a good hotel in a lovely location. If hotel management can find a way to keep the beach boys well away from the hotel grounds, it would be a lot more relaxing and enjoyable for future guests. Ending noisy and seemingly inappropriate â€œentertainmentâ€ by 10pm would create a more relaxing environment. And create a signature cocktail!
This was a fantastic family vacation in mid October. We stayed for a week in two Beach villas with outstanding view. The accommodation was as expected very clean with everything needed to make you feel comfortable. The food was just excellent with variety of choices African, Asian and European cuisine, many fruits and sweets. The staff was very friendly and we had not problems during our stay, apart from the slow housekeeping that was not always on time. The shows after dinner were also quite interesting also for the kids. In the end we definitely feel the Hakuna Matata and we will come back for more. Thank Mapenzi, Thank you Zanzibar.
"A Gem in Zanzibar!"
My family (2 adults, one 10, and one 7 year old) spent 10 amazing days at Diamonds Mapenzi in late August. It is simply the best place for a really relaxing, slow paced holiday. We had a superior garden room with a view through the palm trees of the beach. The rooms are very comfortable and cleaned every day, with UK power sockets and a free safe for valuables. There are no TVâ€™s in the rooms which is absolutely fine and adds to the tranquillity of the holiday. All the staff are extremely friendly without exception, and are happy to chat and deal with any requests with a smile. There is one main restaurant overlooking the pool and beach area which added to a very pleasant meal experience. The food in general was excellent, lots of variety and efficient service. Twice a week dinner is hosted on the beach and at the pool, at huge effort from the staff. You can also book a pizza dinner at the beach bar. The bar service is excellent, serving drinks and snacks all day. The pool is great with a plentiful supply of sunbeds. Towels are provided daily using a card system with a $25 refundable deposit. There are also loads of sunbeds dotted around the beach. A few steps take you down onto the beach. There are high and low tides every day, which is great if you want to swim in the sea or, at low tide, walk nearly a kilometre out to the reef, which is an amazing experience. You will find locals on the beach, as well as maasai with stalls selling mementos and gifts. They are polite and friendly and will talk to you, but this just adds to the richness of the experience. We used Ali-Baba and James Bond on the beach for day trips, which were excellent and significantly cheaper than the in-house excursion desk. There are a few evening shows organised by the hotel and also an Italian animation team that provides entertainment and activities. The maasai and acrobatic shows in particular were excellent. We also used the water sports centre where the children had great fun using canoes in the sea. Overall the resort was great for our girls. We have had many holidays across Europe, but would say that this was our best holiday to date! We would whole-heartedly recommend Diamonds Mapenzi and certainly plan to go back again in the future.
"Great for three days of relaxation after a few days on the safari circuit"
After a few days of intense adventure on the safari circuit Diamond Mapenzi Beach Club was perfect to relax before the long trip back home. My room was in an individual bungalow in the third row from the beach, I could hear the waves crash on the reef quite a distance away. It was about 50 metres from the actual beach area, surrounded by tropical plants and flowers. There was a porch with a couch and two chairs in front. Inside there were nice furniture, a big bed with a comfortable mattress, a big bathroom with a giant shower stall including two rain shower heads and a handheld shower. There was no TV, but I did not miss it. WiFi was spotty inside the room, but I had good reception on my front porch. I should mention that the hotel does not claim to have WiFi in the rooms, so what I got was a bonus. The lobby and restaurant are is under a giant roof made with palm fronds, the pool right adjacent. It's not very big, but for only 87 rooms in the hotel it is quite sufficient. Food was excellent, the staff was extremely friendly and obviously proud to work at this place. One night the pool area was used for a special meal consisting mainly of different barbecue stations, not only meat but also fish. The animation team was not too pushy, but there was enough to do if you felt like it. Most of the guests were young couples from Italy, a very nice class of people. It was easy to make contact with them, even though I don't speak Italian, as many wanted to practice their English and French with me.
