Wonderful ambience, friendly staff...many staff went out of their way to help. Just beware the beach boys and try to ignore. Food was amazing and plentiful. The bar staff never smile, but are helpful. Asante sana (thank you, very much) and karibu (welcome) are used in abundance. :-)

Having been to numerous resorts in Mombasa, this is one of the best. Variety and quality of food, room size and comfort was excellent. Staff went that extra mile to make you feel special The entertainment team were amazing - thank you for kick starting our exercise routine. See you next year Kole Kole.

After a long 9 hour flight in Premium, which was not worth the money on a standard aircraft but definately worth it on the Dreamliner which we had on the way back, we arrived at around 9am in stifling heat, it...
