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

. After a rigorous safari we wound up at the Diani Sea Lodge and spent five heavenly days winding down and relaxing. The atmosphere here is friendly and welcoming. Accomodations are spacious and comfortable. Food and drink are continuously flowing and abundant. All meals are buffet so you are constantly faced with decisions as to what to eat. Such a... 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.

A great site, however the hotel is tired to say the least. Water drains, electric rooms etc. paid extra for room upgrade. Got a very old fashioned tv (only two channels) plus a small old fridge. The staff however were fantastic, I have never known a group of people so keen to please. Very little to do on the site... More
