I just want to go back to this paradise! This hotel is amazing and I have nothing bad to say about it. The food was fresh and delicious, they make the sea food as you watch and you can have to your fill. Our room was huuuuggggeeeee and the bathroom was beautiful! The welcome decorations were so tastefully done, flower... More

Visited Ocean Sports mid May 2015. The staff are very warm and welcoming and made our stay very comfortable. I also liked that they have freshly prepared meals at an affordable cost. The check in and check out times are conviniently flexible. The only downside of visiting at this time of the year is the unpredictable weather and the beach... More

Spent 4 nights at this resort in one of the garden rooms. Rooms were comfortable, clean and neat. Coffee was delivered every morning and the breakfast was good. The staff were always helpful and on hand to help out with any queries. The bar is fantastic - I would say one of the best along that beach - with great... More

Amazing accommodating staff. Lovely family suite room. Stunning views and beach. Great diving sites in the marine park. I saw huge manta rays and my friends saw reef sharks whilst SUPing. Untouched safe and affordable.

As a former Kenya resident I have visited Ocean Sports many times. What strikes me now as much as ever is the outstanding hospitality of the managers Emilie, Florian and their staff. We felt really welcome, with the staff, particularly in the restaurant and bar area, engaging and chatty but never intrusive. This welcoming atmosphere and the excellent sea food... More

We have been coming to Ocean Sports for 4 years and each year becomes more memorable. The GM and family are so personable and the staff can't help you enough. It seems everyone loves to hang out at Ocean Sports and why wouldn't they.

Thank you for an excellent service during my recent stay. I stayed for 3 nights to be able to attend a friend's wedding nearby. Ocean sports were incredibly helpful, accommodating several last minute changes to my booking dates and number of rooms needed without any fuss and ensuring I got the best rate each time. They arranged airport pick up... More

We loved our stay at Ocean Sports. If you're looking for somewhere really relaxed, friendly with great food, without paying the prices of some of the more lavish hotels, this is the place for you. The room we had was clean, quiet and had a spectacular view of the beach. It is not the place if you're looking for perfect... More
