This really is a beautiful resort. It has grounds keep wonderfully clean by friendly staff who always say 'jambo' when you pass. We chose half board (breakfast and dinner) and were very impressed with the choices at both. The food was great quality, the service was excellent and the dress code wasn't a problem. We had booked a 'Mombasa city'... More
