Very few hotels in Kenya and East Africa offer the excellent service I have come to expect from Swahili.

good place for couples or those looking for a quite luxurious and well organized holiday. not the best entrance point to the beach, but the pool is magnificent (it really deserves a visit). very courteous and professional staff, good food. the rooms are fantastic, decoration and style are remarkable. not very child-friendly.
