We come and stayed here before and after our safari trip. The rooms were nice as we were in a separate lodge, but we had a rat that lived outside the door in a drainage ditch. On your walk around there are monkeys all over being cheeky. But if your on the beach keep your stuff out of the site... More

They took my mobile phone. It was found in my room and they said they were sending it back. I sent a courier and they didn't give it to the courier person. My phone was never seen again. Disappointed.

On arrival at the Diani Sea Lodge we were very disappointed.

The room that we... More

I booked a one week all-inclusive holiday through Firstchoice to stay at Diani Sea lodge (not to be confused with Diani Sea resort). It is a cheap/basic/budget option and if your needs/standards are more than average, you'd be better off paying a few hundred pounds more to stay elsewhere. That said, in hindsight I'd personally still have gone with this... More

We flew into Unkunda, and had a 10 minute taxi ride to the hotel. The accommodation is lovely, the staff are friendly. Food is delicious. Cost is ALL inclusive including drinks. The only drawback are the many steps. It is built on a hill, so while one can look out over scores of beautiful bougainvillea, one also has to watch... More
