Pros: Lots of space to lounge about, nice pools and water areas, excellent masseuse, great beach access, lots of taxis and tuk-tuks outside the front door, friendly waiters / cleaning staff and serves up some fabulous pizza. Cons: Very poor client service at the front desk, staff not trained in the art of greeting and smiling at patrons, inadequate and... More

The food was fresh, and the housekeeping staff were friendly, exception on the head receptionist who is ill mannered, For once i did not feel segregated in a predominantly Italian set up. more consideration for the other visitors would be highly appreciated and clear cut communication on activities would be highly appreciated otherwise it was okay

Located on Silversand beach. The sand is white but sea is not beautiful due to the proximity with the Sabaki river mouth and the presence of algae. I stayed in the Yachting club area which is calm and nice.Tides and beac boys are annoying. Good buffet all inclusive.

Visited several times and would go back again. Time share side is more European-like, multi-floor condo units, while the village side is more tropical, beach huts. Both are very nice. Food is plentiful buffet style, all-inclusive. Entertainment is enjoyable local flavor. Amenities include beachfront showers, cabanas, waterside food/drink, safari travel service and a number of beautiful freshwater pools. A plus... More

This has to be the worst resort I have ever been to. To start with, they have no internal parking so you have to park your car outside on the road. We had to pay a 35 euro charge per person (we were not informed of this charge so was a total surprise). This charge was for using the hotel... More

Had our honeymoon here and the team didn't even try to make it any special for us. We only got shower gel on our first night after which we had to beg for shower gel. We actually made numerous calls to reception who ignored our request. We got shower gel in containers smuggled to us by a worker. No label... More

The Coral Key was the perfect base of operations for our recent one-week stay in Kenya. The property is right on the beach with wonderful views of the Indian Ocean; the grounds of the resort are beautiful and meticulously maintained; and the multiple swimming pools on the property were fantastic. The meal and all-inclusive drink plans were good values although... More

As stated by Zdenek K, the most important thing for you to know is that every night there is a disco, some nights it goes very late, and of the 7 nights we stayed, two were so loud that, despite earplugs, I slept poorly. If you like to stay of late and dance, you'll likely love it. If you are... More
