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

From the time we arrived to the time we left we were treated like royalty. All the staff were brilliant, the Guards ensured you were safe, the Chefs catered for your needs whether you were a vegetarian or a non veg, pool/bar staff always served with a smile and the cleaning staff ensured the room was spotless everyday. The beach... More

We visited end of May this year. After a long drive from Nairobi, we got at the hotel just around 4 pm. Unfortunately the service at the reception was very poor. There was no welcome drink or cold towel which is the norm at other hotels. We had to wait a while for our room to be allocated. The room... More

Two couples went there together, and paid the same rates. One got a deluxe room, the other got a small room. The reception staff were very rude and refused to change the 2nd room - though they had other rooms available. Another friend also had to fight for rooms together, or they put the group in different corners of the... More

Went with family for a short holiday. Knew we were in for something special from the way we were treated at the reception. We arrived at kole kole after being let down at another establishment just down the road. The hotel itself is setup in lush gardens with possibly the best infinity pool I've seen in a while. Though the... More

words cannot describe the fun i had with my family. The best part is having facilities of 3 hotels at your disposal. With a true all inclusive deal where you can eat and drink all day all you want, then partake in as many games and activities as you wish for free. Loved the evening shows and friendly people. The...

We have stayed here several times now and have recomended to others who have also enjoyed their stay. We have stayed in all 3 within this site- and the great thing is whichever one your staying at you still have the choice of eating and swimming at any of the sites. As we have children we found kole kole side... More
