Just returned from a Kenyatta Day break at Whitesands. Was expecting a long wait for the room not only as we arrived at 9 a.m. but also because we had the same experience during a family holiday in August 2014. Due to a problem with the door lock spent the whole afternoon answering the door and the telephone to hordes... More

The complimentary pick up from the airport was a perfect start to our 1st vacation with baby. Maganga the driver was so polite and made the trip to the hotel so nice. Check in was swift and the welcome drinks are always refreshing. Our sea view room was exactly how we had pictured it. Being my husbands birthday, he received... More

We stayed here a few years back, because of FCO warnings etc we can't go back at the moment. We found it to be a tropical paradise, the rooms were excellent & the staff were so welcoming & friendly. The food was brilliant & we can't wait to go back again.

Whitesands is strategically placed and quite nice. The room was good, with a lovely view of the sea which is especially beautiful at sunrise. We enjoyed jet skiing and swimming in the 'silent' pool. It would ideally be a nice beach to walk on but the hassling from the beach boys. The buffet offers a nice selection of food with... More

We spent fantastic few days in the Whitesands Beach Resort. The staff has been extremely friendly and with great sense of humour, but courteous at the same time. We have been eating at the Pavilions restaurant - great variety and food was excellent. The spa is to die for! one of the nicest spas I've ever seen. All in all... More
