We have stayed here twice under RCI and my family always looks forward to going back to the place. The swimming pool is so children friendly. Excellent facilities for expecially for a family with children. Great service from polite and friendly staff.

We stayed here for 7 days and really enjoyed this beachfront property. It is an older property but the service was great and it was safe. I like the fact that Simon arranged a perfect safari to Tsavo National Park for my family. The rooms were very spacious 2 bedroom with full kitchen.

The place had an islolated feel to it but I was told it's because it was slow season. There was no wifi (although site listed wifi avaiable) you have to go to the internet cafe to use the computer. Granted I didn't come all the way across the world to watch Television I expected more than three air channels. If... More

We stayed a week with several of us in the 2+ bedrooms. It's fully self-contained and we felt it was very affordable, being able to cook several of our own meals. With kayak rental available, 2 swimming pools, activities for the children, and beautiful surroundings we were very happy indeed. The beaches in the north coast aren't as pristine as... More

Visited this RCI resort with young kids some time ago, and they have fond memories of the nice pools and shallow ocean with lots of seaweed. We self catered, so can't say much about restaurant food. Room was clean, but not up to par with most timeshares. About 30 mi. north of Mombasa, a little too remote. We prefer Diani... More

We stayed at Royal Reserve for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the area with super snorkelling and fishing trips. These were organised by the local beach boys led by Francis who can be contacted at www.krtoursandsafaris.co.uk the boys really made the trip for us as the hotel is suffering badly from the lack of tourists and is...

Very sad state this place is in with practically no one there. Beach is terrible with small area of sand and locals bother you. Food was terrible in restaurant and with us the only ones eating, it took a half hour to get coffee and never mind the rest of the mix ups. Front desk not very friendly. Massage girls... More

So....we had a week booked at Royal Reserve. But as things sometimes go, we needed to move our arrival date forward two days and our departure date forward four days. Absolutely no flexibility from the Royal Reserve. Even when they knew they would come out ahead with only 5 days of occupancy instead of the paid-for 7 days, they would... More

We visited Royal Reserve for 2013 Christmas. The place was packed with guests. The kids had fun swimming in the two pools as well as running at the beach. We did our own self catering so we did not each much at the hotel restaurant. We enjoyed our stay and will definately go back.
