We spent Christmas and enjoyed the spacious room facing the sea, high quality of food and friendly staff. The sunbeds facing the sea are great but remember to get up early and put your towel on your favorite before the other tourists!?!

Hotel only offically rated 3*+ only the rooms needing a slight upgrade. All the staff 5* cannot name one without naming them all. Food 5* with lots of variations never had a bad meal here. Beautiful gardens only drawback is the slope from the restaurant to the beach. White soft sandy beach with a little seaweed. The people who gave... More

Ok, this isn't a full review since we arrived late (10 pm after driving 11 hours) and left as soon as we could in the morning. But... Yes, everything is in English and German, the rooms are frankly disgusting, I have never seen so many ants or mosquitoes. Even after spraying the room, in the morning there more mosquitoes so...

We spent 10 days here, wrapped round the Mombasa Rendezvous Safari and what a joy it was after being flung about in a jeep that tried to cope with the Kenyan potholes, some which look and feel bigger than the Grand Canyon. The hotel offers a good variety of meals with plenty of evening entertainment. The staff are very friendly... More

Nice beach hotel managed by German owners, so everything is "in Ordnung". :) No problem with anything at all, good offer of food to choose from (of course german or swiss food too), showtime every night. Almost no children, mainly 40+, no big groups = no big parties in the night. Wi-fi just in the lobby - should be better... More

We stayed for a weekend in DianiSea Lodge, the beach access from here with the white sandy beach is the best in this area. Food and drinks are served in plenty and a great garden. The restaurnat offers a lot of food and fruits for everyone.
