4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

So we went back two months after our first visit and were not disappointed, the staff friendly and helpful as always, facilities exceptional, activities for the kids and adults as well were fun. A couple of things though, the quality of food can still do with some improvement, it is not bad but we do not pay for "not bad".... More

We stayed 5 nights in this resort as part of a wedding party. This hotel is in an amazing location, but I am afraid that is all. The food and service are very poor. Our poor experience include lack of response when contacting reception (it takes ages), bad ironing (paid) and not refunded, no room service, very poor bar in... More

the place is undoubtedly beautiful and the staff at the restaurant and animators are very kind (not very welcoming at the reception [average, not a 5 stars approach], and watch out for your airport transfers, make sure they are ready in time!). the beach is nice (very nice!) but you have to make sure to keep the sellers away otherwise...

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of staying at Kole Kole Beach Resort to celebrate my sister, Tulsi Patel’s wedding. The whole experience was perfect. The hotel management (led by Mr Sakayo & Mr Charles) provided excellent support through the planning and overseeing of the wedding party from 24th to 26th July. The front desk staff (Patrick, Mzungu,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and were very well looked after. The rooms were large and well decorated with views over looking the gardens, pool and glimpses of the sea. The quality and variety of food was also good; although by day 3 it got a bit repetitive. Staff were excellent and happy to assist as were the animation... More

Its a great place to stay for people of all ages. The food options are plenty and it is available almost round the clock. Their swimming pools are beautiful and relaxing, they have swimming pools for kids, couples, friends and families. The beach from the hotel is also perfect. There is white sand, warm waters, not much coral and very... More

Good points, helpful staff (mostly) especially the waiters in the restaurants and the animation team , good food, great pool for young and old alike and stunning beach. Nice rooms. Bad points, unhelpful staff (generally the barmen who seem so put out that you would dare ask them for a drink), monkeys and baboons everywhere, you can't eat or drink... More

We went to the resort on our 10th anniversary. We had pre-booked dinner on the beach. When we arrived we were welcomed warmly by staff and found a lovely note on the bed congratulating us on our anniversary. The chef and the food manager spoke on us on our preferences for our anniversary meal. On the evening, they set it... More
