This was one of the worst experiences I have had out of all the different Hotels I have stayed at in Kenya…..and there have been several. It should not call itself a Hotel as it is still primarily self-catering cottages with construction still going on. I was in a, so called, 'executive' room, which was actually hot (there was no...

We had wonderful days att Hillpark in two of the "villas". Altogether we were 8 persons -wife, daughter, son- in- law and four grandchildren. The place is indeed lovely with ocean and the coral-reef nearby. The service at the reception and in the restaurant was very good. My wife and I are old now but our grandchildren and their friends...

I'll start with the positive: the beach is gorgeous - although it doesn't have the wide white sand of Diani, I think it is better than Diani because the water is beautifully clear and there are gorgeous little rockpools to explore. The big negative of Hillpark: woeful food. The breakfast is basically inedible (despite it being included in our rate,... More

Been working in Kenya 10 years and visited this place often - it's gone through several changes of ownership in that time and Hillpark seem to be making a decent job of it. However they are expanding and building so it may get very busy in the next year or two and lose some of its charm. The self-catering cottages... More

This is a beautiful resort with a central restaurant, a ocean view bar a nice pool area and a wide range of accomodation types. We stayed in the large hotel-type building with executive rooms. The rooms are not great, but quite nice, but they had no view. What I find strange is that the place was very quiet: why not... More

This small resort offers accommodation in beach cottages or hotel rooms set in a vast, well-maintained park leading down to a private beach. Like all hotels on Tiwi beach, it is accessible via a 1km dirt road off the main road to Diani. In the Lonely Planet it is registered under its old name, Maweni Cottages. We stayed here for... More

I booked via Expedia for 2 weeks after staying in a private house in Diani. I paid for an "Executive Standard" room - went to visit to check it out and the "Executive rooms" face backwards away from the sea and have a wall of the building alongside as the view. I complained and said I requested an ocean view... More

I takes a lot of time and a ferry to get there, but once you get down there, it is a perfect place to be. It is far away from Mombasa, what means basicaly that no one will annoy you on the beach, and you can easily walk or swim there witout local companions. Food is OK, personnel is nice,... More

I have been in Maweni at least three times between 2008 and 2011 (twice over New Years) and I love the place. It has been developed and upgraded a lot over the past couple of years. It's great as a get-away if you are looking for a quiet and relaxed beach holiday and it's ideal for self-catering. I did not... More
