Although we were not staying at this hotel located in Kilifi on the Kenyan coast, we visited their beach side restaurant on Christmas day. The staff were amazing and very welcoming. Due to the many visitors on this day food orders took longer than expected. However, it was worth waiting. The chicken pizzas and chicken and chips/fries were awesome. The... More

Went to have a look and a 'change of scene' whilst staying elsewhere in kilifi... We decided to have a drink and a quick swim the pool before leaving. Unfortunately they did my tell us, and nowhere was it indicated, that they charge top dollar for a swim. Then sing appeared on the bill. Consequently we didn't have enough money... More

Lovely place. Poor service and unhelpful untrained staff. Food takes too long and limited choice. Not good PR. Was going to stay with kids over weekend but 1 staff attitude put us off. Very rude.Unfortunate. Could have been better with some tact.

Fantastic location and layout. Real resort atmosphere. Healthy for a break. The house keeping department changes towels and linen without the guests asking. They have a funny or strange habit of keeping hibiscus flowers on your pillows.The waiter named Warake really stands out. Those all make the good of it. Limited menu, inordinate delay in serving orders, absence of telephones/intercom... More

We were walking along the Kilifi beach and decided to have a drink at the hotel beach bar for a bit. It had a really nice view. The bar wasn't well stocked for some reason. Ordered food which took quite a while and came when it was cold and the portion was really small. They had a nice pool however.

We called here for lunch without a reservation. The staff were vague about the available facilities. We eventually found the restaurant which was serving a buffet lunch. The food was a reasonable but unappealing mix of roast lamb, fish and overlooked vegetables. I would not recommend this hotel for a meal.

We went for lunch, it was a buffet. Very average. Maybe because not much Buisness but poor! The staff were very slow, the Drinks waiter was extremely slow, and the CockTail (Dawa), so was not good! VERY Over priced!
