The daily cleaning service was excellent. If you wish you can order a breakfast in the morning. It was more than adequate and really tasty. The location of Giriama residence is... More

The Giriama Residence is a truly beautiful place to stay and very moderatly priced. The rooms and the whole site has been built and decorated with care. It is an easy 5 Minute walk to the beach and ten minutes to most of the shops and restaurants. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. Great value for the money!... More

We stayed there for almost ten days. Rooms are spacious and cleaned every day. The best rooms are the corner ones on the second floor with a cozy couch on the common balcony. Dinners are served at request and are really good. Price and location vise the place is perfect.

I did a late booking, few days before the new year and therefore had few options as many places I contacted were fully booked. When I found Giriama had availability (someone had cancelled... More
