I've stayed here once a year for the last few years atleast! As far as hotels in Diani go, it is one of the better ones. The different choices of restuarants, pools and the great beach definitely make it worthwhile. Rooms are cleaner than some of the other hotels around it, AC works well, they have a decent choice of... More

My stay at Kole Kole was not as I expected. Perhaps it may be due to the fact that I had been given such high expectations by others who had stayed here. It did not meet my expectations. The resort in all is in a great location with great beaches but I was given a room right in the last... More

We chose this hotel to "come down to earth" after our 2 week safari and it was the perfect place to do this. Food was very good with pasta, omelettes etc cooked freshly for individual needs, staff were very welcoming and cheery. The infinity pool was a delight and usually we look for peace and quiet and would avoid "activities"... More

A vacation and weekend destination that once you visit you will want to go back again. Wonderful scenery, white sandy beach, very friendly staff, excellent service, great guest interactions with a water polo match and a volley ball match, aerobics and stretches sessions, kids corner and entertainment. worth every penny paid.

Everything is perfect there but I must emphasise how amazing the staff are, even the security guards! Being Kenyan you would've thought I'm used to wildlife but... More
