Stayed here for 2 nights over the Madaraka holidays and men I was thoroughly impressed. It's a nice and quiet place to relax and have a good time, whether alone or in a group. The food was very fresh and fantastically cooked! Loved the bitings provided throughout the day. I swear I grew fatter in those two days :-) Rooms... More

We didn't originally book this hotel. Three times after the Foreign Office warnings about Mombassa (where we were supposed to go) we reject this place as a viable option as an alternative. When we finally had to accept it, and based on what we really wanted and had booked, we did so with some trepiadtion. One of the conditions that... More

This place is very nice. From the arrival, the staff was very friendly and we felt really welcomed. We decided to upgrade to a suite S3 which was really worth the additional money. The room and the separate lounge are extensive and the direct access to the restaurant, swimming pool and beach is really good when you have a little... More

The hotel was a pleasant surprise. Access to the beach for a walk was a plus for us. The wireless wifi in some areas was also welcome. The rooms were very spacious and clean - with numerous towel changes.The staff were hospitable, accomodating and professional. The only thing was a request for increase or more variety in the breakfast menu... More

The rooms were clean and there was a lot of space. We meet some lovely people whilst we were at the hotel which added to the holiday being enjoyable. The spa was... More

Excellent hotel. Very minimal in terms of facilities however that suited us fine. Rooms were awesome and extremely spacious. No fault with the rooms at all. The staff were very very good with one exception (see below). We are vegetarian and the waiters all took great care in ensuring that we were always well fed. The Reservations Manager, Dixon, in...
