I would return to Mafia Beach Bungalows in the blink of an eye. It has everything that one could wish for, for a relaxing stay: Clean, friendly, good location, peace and very good food. The bungalows are spacious with huge beds and good en-suite bathrooms. The food is excellent and prepared to order with a great variety for vegetarians and vegans, too. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly and happy to arrange trips and activities to suit all tastes. The beach is less than thirty seconds from the bungalows and the sea is warm and calm. Set in the Mafia Island National Marine Park, with a bar beside the mangroves, it is an idyllic spot for swimming, bird-watching or just sitting.
We enjoyed our stay a lot. Anthony and his staff did their best to keep us happy ;-) the room was simple, clean and cosy. We organized trips with them, which all were amazing!! Great snorkelling and the whalesharks are a must!!!
Breakfast was very tasty and fresh every day and so were the other meals we had there!
We would defenitely recommend staying at mafia beach bungalows!!
Thanks to anthony and his great staff!
Resort is small but very pleasant and calm with family atmosphere, also it's a simple facility but everything was working fine.
Bungalow made from natural material (wood, palm leafs) with ceiling open to the roof, allows fresh breeze to com ein and out so there was very pleasant temperature even at noon.
Be prepared that you share this shelter with other small inhabitants :) that live secretely with you. Hakuna matata!
Room was completely cleaned every day and we appreciated it a much.
We enjoyed our stay in our bungalow, staff members (two ladies and Ally) were very helpful.
Especially Ally was taking care about us very carefully and with his help we were able to arrange all our trips and excursions.
We booked several whale shark snorkelling trips and every trip we saw 2-4 whale sharks, so we were (are) satisfied.
The beach is few steps to the left of resort, but you have to catch a high tide for swimming otherwise the water is gone and you can walk on flat bottom only.
Another possibility is to walk about 20' to Utende beach where the shore is more steep.
You can rent a kayjak and if you are good at paddling a lot and visit the opposite Chole Island.
Our way and vacation on Mafia was excellent.
Best regards and kwa heri :)
Coastal Air did weigh our complete baggage and charged us extra $60 (but way back was not charged).

Mafia beach Bungalows is the perfect budget accommodation, it has everything you need and Ally and the rest of the staff go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and help you plan your activities.
The food was delicious, the room was clean and comfortable, the location was nice and quiet and the people at the bungalows were really friendly!
We also did the whale shark tour with them, which was beyond description!!!
Definitely, I would visit again and recommend them any time!
