On arrival I had a splendid warm chocolate chip cookie handed to me. The reception was ok, staff helpful but painfully slow. Internet also slow. The restaurant was good and the food rather tasty for African hotel food. The views are amazing and there is an Amani spa on the grounds as well for those in need of a bit... More

Check in Staff were very good and made me feel at home. Room was bright spacious and airy with a beautiful sea view. A bit disappointed that there was no direct beach access. Spa was also good and treatments were good. Menu in Restaurant was OK and ala carte dining was OK.

Experience was far below expectation considering the charge is same as that of 5-star hotels! The room smelt stuffy with mouldy smell, decor was poor, mosquitoes were in plenty in the room, breakfast was appaling! The staff were very eager to assist but I had to move out after 1 night's stay as I felt very cheated and dissapointed.

A beautiful hotel, perfectly located. Unfortunately there is no access to the sea. the staff are so friendly and helpful. The shower needs to be upgraded and the bathroom needs to be slip-free. Otherwise lovely.
