There is loads for all the family to do with kids clubs, football, water polo, golf, volleyball and many other activities for the family to enjoy. The food is good with a big range of choice which changes... More

My experience started with booking. My online reservation was not registered and I had to make several calls; first to book; then to reconfirm the booking after depositing the funds in their account. The front office/ reception desk were however quite helpful. When we arrived, our initial rooms ( deluxe option) were a disaster. We were changed to an even... More

Had it not be for the Resident Manager Mr. Daudi I would have given the hotel 1Star. He salvaged the situation after my online reservation wasn't registered. Facilities are food were great and having an events programme was/is a big deal to me. Apart from the reservation issue, the other major problem was tv. I love my rugby and wish... More

Just like the phoenix, Sun n' Sand is rising again. I stayed there in early December 2013, not at full capacity, but staff did their best to make our stay comfortable. The current management has so many ideas, including the upcoming residential project, which will of course invigorate the whole area again. All the best, and hope to return to... More

Unfortunately when the Owner Amir Visram (my uncle) passed in 2008, the hotel has been on a downward slope. It is very sad to see what was once a fantastic vibrant place with so much potential. However, it was not meant to be... We normally get great service as i am a relative, so i have to be biased with... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks in August. Welcome drinks on arrival then luggage was sent to our room. Our room was situated quite far from the reception but the resort is so big we had lots of things to do next to our room. We had a large pool with slide outside which was great. There is also a further... More

After a fantastic week on safari staying at the Shimba Hills, Voi and Ngulia Lodges, the Sun N Sands was a welcome 5-Star week of relaxation, to conclude our holiday. Both the food and the service was provided to an impeccable standard. The buildings of this boutique hotel were in excellent condition and the facilities met the expected standard. Ultimately,...

Apparently this was once a five star hotel. They still cling to the plaque even though this is no longer the reality. The hotel is large and set on spacious grounds. The service is great with smiles from the reception to the waiters. That's the only good news! The rooms are run down and as opposed to refurbrishing, the owners... More
