Review of Mnemba Island

Kayoko Omatsu

The actual decor of the room, lack of AC and quality of toiletries were just okay but this place made up for it with their amazing hospitality. We sat and talked to several guests and staff every night which we really enjoyed. The diving was unbelievable and the beach was the most beautiful beach I think we have ever been to. We also enjoyed the star gazing at night.
