Rustic Zanzibar hotel with friendly Italian touch
Loved my 6 night all inc stay at Diamonds Mapenzi in July.Staff are all very friendly and the Italian reps are good fun very welcoming, especially Sofia and Alessandro. The food was excellent with the chef from Bangladesh (didn't get his name) particularly good with his pasta station. If I had to quibble I would say the drinks service in the restaurant was occasionally patchy,but nothing too off-putting.

Lovely staff but overpriced
While the staff were lovely and the beach location great, I was expecting a higher level of quality in the rooms given the cost of staying here. They are pretty basic for the cost and there is a very small amount of hot water for showers. Mosquito nets had holes in them. The food was very good and gave a decent variety for those of us who do not eat meat. Drinks were available throughout the day and evening, and the staff went to considerable effort to provide interesting dining experiences, i.e. one night a week all the tables are moved so you can sit around the pool. I must emphasise though, that the staff were absolutely lovely and did everything to help. Unfortunately, the whole experience is overpriced compared to similar options in places like Mexico and Turkey.
