Spent an amazing two weeks at MaMaLu last summer! The rooms are simple and clean with a great view. I would recommend anybody looking for a quiet and comfortable place to stay to check out this gem.

Breakfast was basic and...

During our two-week stay on the island, when eating out, we usually chose fish and everything we got there was delicious but MaMaLu was outstanding. Fresh fish from the charcoal just makes the difference. Also highly recommended: the homemade salted anchovis, a reason to go back there! Excellent "old school" service and the only place where we got fish knives...
