We were a large party staying for two nights. The owners (the whole family) were wonderful, however, if they could have been a little more accommodating it would have made so much difference. The food was nothing brilliant and always took so long to come even the desserts were just ice cream it was not well thought about at all... More

We decided to choose Funzi Keys for its idyllic location. It was not worth what we paid for. The staff are not trained or off the mark. Like several times wrong drinks were served.... food was served cold and it took them ages in between serving the courses during lunch and dinner so we'd have to wait. Food portions were... More

After a few days at Masai Mara, we went for a couple of days to Funzi Keys. When we arrived, we felt very well immediately. The owners were very kind and eager to make you at home. And the staff, specially Abdullah, was very attentive. If you are looking for air conditioning and tv, this is not for you. Funzi... More

My wife and I spent a weekend at Funzi a couple of weeks ago and are still coming back down to earth afterwards - simply an amazing place for a relaxing getaway. It's a family run place, and they and the staff are extremely welcoming, generous and attentive. Rooms are fantastic and perfectly suited to the desert island feel of... More

This place is heaven on earth! We arrived late in the afternoon, after a calm and peaceful boat ride. I cannot describe the feeling of calmness and peace that comes over you when you arrive at the beach in front of the reception. There is no stress here, no cell phones, no music, just ... peace and quiet. It's ideal... More

Wow from 35 minutes drive and 15 minute boat trip we experienced heavenly treatment. Rooms ver luxurious with own spa, bottle bubbly on arrival and lovely hosts. On the expensive side but well worth the treat. Only disappointment was the red wine included but such a small thing to moan about. Although fully inclusive we organised a seafood platter at...

The food was horrible,my kenyan maid will make better spaghetti bolognese,my babys portion was same as for adults,too small and... More
