The bathroom was a bit old style but everything worked fine. The swimming pools at Reef are very nice, one has a "swim up" bar. The hotel... More

Nice hotel, nice food and right on the beach, the rooms are a bit tired though and you don't get value for money. We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed ourselves. The safe in the room is not available for free! The hotel requires you to rent it if you want to use. We did a mistake and chose... More

Slept at this Hotel for 2 nights 4th and 5th June 2014. Liked the breeze near the swimming pool side. The food was fine with so many people converging here for super and having a nice evening talk. I even sighted my good Professor from Strathmore in the Group. I would comfortably recommend someone to stay there given that the... More

The Reef hotel is an excellent place to stay. We arrived after 5 days of Safari (sleeping in tents) to stay for tree days and it was a really good choice. The hotel is quite far from the city center, but is silent and great place for relax. The suff is really helpful, funny and it is a pleasure to... More
