    Fabulous and friendly staff, amazing food and breakfast was included and enough food for the whole day! Beautiful infinity pool, and bed swings to relax in the beach. Very good value for money for all including food, cocktails. Staff can organise trips, taxis and whatever else you may need.

    The location is far away from any amenities but this may be beneficial if you’re looking for a quiet escape!

    The location is great, 30min from Stone Town and an equal distance to the north and south. The Lodge is beautiful and well maintained. The couple who own the lodge are lovely and their staff are all very friendly. Breakfast was delicious, all the fresh fruit and traditional breads. We really enjoyed our stay and are very greatful to our hosts for making it such a memorable holiday.

    Location excellent; enjoyed the ocean and the pool; staff very friendly and helpful; the owner's personal attention was very nice and helpful also; food was good. the focus on the environment is a nice addition to all the other good things about Mangrove Lodge. All in all a wonderful visit, and we all highly recommend The Mangrove Lodge!!

    The water pressure was a little low, but this is understandable, and not really a hindrance.
