Funzi Keys has 1km of white sandy beach front with each cottage perfectly situated to provide privacy but easy access to the restaurant and pool. The cottages are large and spacious with each featuring either a jacuzzi or hot tub, but will soon need to be updated. The food is good especially the Italian dishes with the gnocchi being outstanding.... More

I always use Tripadvisor to read reviews when I book a holiday/hotel but had actually never written one myself. Our stay at Funzi Keys was that disappointing though that I felt the need to put our experiences here to avoid others having a similar experience. We spent a week here during our honeymoon in January and were very disappointed by... More

It was really a great experience, I really felt at home, every one cares personally. starting from the Janitor to the manager. Room was very clean and housekeeping pass twice a day. Food was excellent with nice variety. Coffee was fresh and tasty.

Nice relaxing place but services and facilities are rather 'relaxing' in negative way too. The biggest issue was food, insufficient in quality and quantity. There never was enough foods on buffet, possibly good for dieting. You need to wait forever between each course too. It is quite amazing a family build it up from scratch but is obvious they are...

I would like to sincerely apologize to Mr. torriani and Family for the previous review done, using my account. I and my daughter had fun at Funzi. It is a peaceful and quiet place to relax after months of work. The rooms are peaceful and well decorated and the staff welcoming. The food was awesome, done by a re known... More

We very much enjoyed our time on the Funzi Keys and were truly able to relax after a wonderfull time in the Mara. Staff was friendly but not very caple. This was more than compensated for by the very friendly family that runs the resort! The cottages are very spacious and nicely decorated. Perfect location for relaxing, either at the... More

We loved our experience at the Funzi Keys. We were truly able to relax after our wedding. We spent most of our time lounging at the sand bar, by the pool or next to our beach-side hut. If you are looking for lots of activities, this may not be the place for you - unless you are willing to pay... More

We stayed here after an absolutely fabulous safari in mount Kenya, Samburu, Sweetwater and then Masai Mara. We had been spoilt in all these places and were expecting to continue this string of luxury in Funzi Keys. We were extremely disappointed. This I must add, is no fault of Funzi Keys. To be quite honest, I could have enjoyed this... More
