Schoeman Family stayed at Diamonds Mapenzi Beach on Zanzibar in Jul 2019

Diamonds Mapenzi Beach Schoeman Family

Having visited Zanzibar and Diamonds Mapenzi Beach resort in Oct 2011, Tessa longed to return… in January she booked her trip back, this time with her children Luka & Mia and was welcomed back at Diamonds Mapenzi Beach in July 2019, and had this to say;

” Thank you for all your arrangements for our Zanzibar trip. We had an absolutely wonderful time – Mapenzi is exactly as I remember it and highly recommended. Chef Victor was lovely and very accommodating – we would go to him at the start of every meal and he would walk through the buffet with us, pointing out which dishes contained nuts (of which there were very few). I was impressed by the quality of the food and maintenance; I saw maintenance teams every day doing small jobs to make sure everything was in tip-top shape and the moment a leaf drops there is a gardener to rake it up.

My kids & I went on a Blue Safari trip that we arranged with the beach boys and it was a great day out.

It will be a happy day indeed when the new airport is operational ?? – that was really the only unpleasant part of the entire trip.

Thank you again for all your work on this. I do hope I will make it to Zanzibar again.”

We had so much fun and it was the best choice we ever made.

Again thank you so much “

Diamonds Mapenzi Beach review received from the Rampersadh family that returned from a short getaway to Zanzibar in March 2018.

“Hi Dawie,
Thank you to you and Rose for making all the arrangements for our trip. Your efficiency and professionalism is unmatched!
The holiday was awesome from beginning to end. The hotel has a beautiful setting and the staff are warm and attentive. The hotel is equipped with all facilities required to provide you with that little piece of island paradise. The food and selection of drinks on the all-inclusive option were varied and always well prepared. The food at the a la carte restaurant was also great. The beach at Mapenzi is fabulous in that it allows for some adventure and relaxation. We were also very fortunate with perfect sunny days for the whole duration of our stay. Overall, the holiday was enjoyed by all in the group and, if the opportunity arises, we will certainly return! Attached are a few photos for your amusement.
Many thanks and kind regards,
Kim”

Diamonds Mapenzi Beach Zanzibar Melanie and Julize

Diamonds Mapenzi Beach review received from Melanie and Julize that stayed at Diamonds Mapenzi Beach on Zanzibar in June 2015.

“Hi Dawie,
We really want to thank you sincerely for your excellent service. It is not something we experience often these days! You went out of your way to assist us and made planning this holiday completely worry free!!
You responded to my queries that I e-mailed you immediately with a phone call and a comprehensive e-mail with feedback (and there were many smile emoticon and certain things I probably asked more than twice!!).
The phone call on the day before we left for Zanzibar just put the cherry on top to prove the excellent service you provide!! We will recommend you without doubt to anyone who wants to visit Zanzibar!
Our stay at Mapenzi was awesome!! Even though we didn’t take a seafront room our room was perfectly located for us and we wouldn’t have traded it for a seafront room!

The staff is really simply the best! They are always friendly, very helpful and the service is really in a class of its own! It’s a stunning hotel!!
The dinner at the pool the one night with entertainment and the one on the beach surpassed our expectations. They went through so much effort with decorations and extra special food on these evenings – truly fantastic!
We took over 3000 photos on our trip, that’s how beautiful Zanzibar is!
We only made use of the beach boys (locals) for our tours and we are so glad we did! They actually have in intricate business structure which nobody realizes. They are educated people and I saw most people brushing them off and giving them the cold shoulder when they were approached by them on the beach which is sad. Zanzibar is a very poor country and these people really go the extra mile with regards to your tours. We got to know a lot of the local people and became friends with them (especially Iddy (Eddie), with whom we arranged all our tours and Abdi).
Our tours were all fantastic and for each tour Eddie (he works with Verimark) had a guide which specializes in that area, for instance someone to show you the best snorkelling! We saw the entire island and did all tours with exception of the spice tour as that doesn’t fascinate us). But we went to Kizimkazi, The Rock, Jozani, Mangrove Forest, Kendwa, Nungwi, Slave Caves, Mnemba (twice for snorkelling), Stonetown, Prison Island, The Blue Safari etc. Unfortunately we had to skip Timbathu due to the weather on that day. Due to our tailor made tours we wanted we had a driver and guide all to ourselves each time (with exception of 2 tours) and we could dictate where we wanted to go and how long we wanted to stay at each location. If we wanted to change our tour whilst in the midst of it, it was also no problem. We learned so much about the culture and awesome people that we just had to buy their CD with the song “Jambo” on it – they sing it to you on every tour and is just a nice and upbeat song that will always remind you of Zanzibar!!
The 2 highlights would have to be that we got to swim with dolphins and sea turtles!!! Both our dreams came true!!! Thanks to all who made this a memorable holiday!!!
Attached are some photos smile emoticon (I’ll have to send 2 more mails with photos!)
