I loved the setting, the wonderful staff who did everything to make you happy. The water sports and the beach, the clear blue sea and the wonderful pool area. The authentic tic tic rides into Kilifi to see shop at the markets. Splendid holiday

David, the Fitness Instructor, runs the best fitness sessions I have ever been to. Aerobics, Steps, Taebo, something different every day, even Zumba on the beach by moonlight. Magical. The setting is unbeatable. Mnarani Club surpasses all expectations in personal service, facilities and ambiance. I wholeheartedly it recommend it to anyone.

What an awesome experience, from the time we got picked up at the Airport by Omar to the waiter, Charles, who waited until 10:30pm to serve us Dinner due to the delayed arrival. Wonderful atmosphere:-

Visited here for lunch over the Christmas period. Food was ok but not exceptional. The location is good and the outside facilities seemed good.

Situated on the cliffs of the creek, with its own sandy beaches. The staff are friendly, but the service can be slow. The Managerial staff are less welcoming. The food is good, but not very adventurous.

The villiage is very welcoming, and the people friendly. The curious were the cheapest that I found in Kenya, although you are expected to bargain if you buy multiple items. The ruins are an interesting part of Islamic history. The guide was amazing, and provided much of the back story. However had he not been there, the ruins themselves look... More

A fantastic pool makes up for the rather tired rooms and facilities in this hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful.
