An amazing stay! Highly Recommended

We went to this resort for a wedding - it was absolutely amazing! The resort is lovely, the staff are brilliant and can not do enough for you! The service throughout this place is just brilliant, the staff are very welcoming and try their best in every way! My children had a great time and all the staff members made a point of knowing their names and greeting them. I Recommend Diamonds Mapenzi beach for family holidays, group holidays and Weddings!

Paradise

Randburg, South Africa

From the moment you arrive until you leave, you are treated like royalty. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly staff at this lovely hotel. We chose a garden unit as we wanted a quiet part of the hotel and it’s what we got, and very happy with the room. No WiFi but a quick walk to reception was not a problem. The food is absolutely amazing, the head chef always visible and chats to guests at virtually all meals. The sea only comes in at about lunch time but just lying in the palm trees (with a cocktail) is so good for the soul. The locals on the beach do become a pain. I advise you greet them and move on, be firm. Don’t say tomorrow because trust me they never forget. If you are looking at making a trip use Ali Baba - very good! Every night there is an activity which you can or don’t need to take part in. Hakuna Matata. November hot and humidity very high, only Aircon available in the rooms, found the dining area hot and it could do with more fans. Would definitely suggest this place for a little piece of paradise!! Now back to the diet🙈
