Great location and the staff were absolutely great. Lovely building, really good food. included breakfast was really tasty. Did not want to leave.
STEP IN is totally peaceful place with a wonderful view of the sea, homely atmosphere and delicious food. Changing of low and high tide offers variation of activities - swimming or walking far away from the coast where are hidden beautiful reefs with fish. You can also watch and meet local people who live just in the neighbourhood. If you want some shops, lively bars and kiting you can walk to Paje - 6 km up the beach, but be careful with the changes of tides. Jambiani is not spoilt by tourism and local people are very friendly, we can highly recommend it :)

Family run house, very quiet. The owner is friendly and make you feel like at home. The terrasse on top is the best place to relax, drink a beer or read a book.
I would recommend Fairytale villa in 100%. Chagua is very good manager, for whom everything is Hakuna Matata (no problem!). He also cooks very well and can arrange great tours around the island. It is perfect place to relax, sail, swimm, eat ect...I want to come back...now!:-))

Absolutely fantastic place to stay in Zanzibar. Dude and Hel were extremely welcoming, the room was great and the beds comfy, our bathroom was clean and the shower was really good by Tanzanian standards! To top it off Dude took us out in his boat to go snorkelling for a price much cheaper than you would have paid anywhere else. Can't recommend this place enough and will definitely be going back there
Dudes is a great guy and a wonderfull host. Its a great place to stay . Jambiani is low key and very relaxing . We were very happy to stay here. Pj and bomi .

Atmosphere, part of the community, grounds to relax, interesting beach area with lots going on in terms of local fishermen and meeting with people from the area. Hotel staff were very friendly, helpful and interesting to talk to. Lovely breakfast. Daily menu was a little limited.
A little piece of heaven on earth... We stayed there for our final day before heading back to Dar. Coming from the much too touristic and crowded Kendwa up north, we were delighted to chill at Imani's. I loved having the local fishermen just outside of the property, and the tree top terrace offers the most beautiful view. Great food as well and great staff and management! Beautiful flowers and bougainvilliers! Asante sana!

Absolutely fantastic place to stay! A place with character, calm The hotel team helped me in everything, They ordered me taxi to Dar and rang after and asked if everything is still okay... The best hotel in Zansibar and perhaps the whole Africa! Enjoy!
Staff were very friendly. The rooms were large and comfortable. Good location close to the ferry port and sea front. Breakfast was average, they could have provided more choice, but overall a nice hotel in Stone Town.

Beautiful location right on the beach, wonderful food reasonably priced so there wasn't any need to go anywhere else on the island if you didn't want to, very responsive, friendly staff, free wifi, spacious bungalow with the tropical feel we were looking for, swings, hammocks, and chairs all facing the beach, clean and inviting pool, super value for the money
The sunrises were spectacular - seafood was fantastic crab, octopus, prawns etc in coconut or just dressed - huge portions- and definitely value for money! Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was friendly. Henna tattoos excellent And massages were pretty good. Trips are good value and affordable It was a fantastic 7 days - a nice cheap place with no fancy trimmings !!!

Jambiani guesthouse is ideally placed, right on the seafront in beautiful unspoilt Jambiani. Anna, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. This was the perfect place for us to relax and unwind after climbing Kilimanjaro.
This place is fabulous! It's such a good value for the money. The common area is really nice to sit in and relax, and the front porch area is perfect. There is a hammock between the palm trees, and sunbathing beds and chairs to recline in and soak up the sun. The beach is out the front door, and is so beautiful. I've never seen water that is such a bright blue. The breakfast of fresh fruits and crepes was delicious and filling. I highly recommend this place, and that you visit Jambiani. It's a little slice of paradise.

The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. I had to leave very early on my last morning to catch my flight home and they provided me with a packed breakfast.
Reasonably convenient. Staff tried to be helpful, but were not always able to answer question that we would have expected them to be able to answer. Room was spacious with fan and aircon and the bathroom was adequate with hot water always being available. A driver was available when required. TV, beer and water were available in the roof restaurant. WiFi worked well in that area though not in the bedroom.
