We recently stayed here on the strength of previous trip advisor reviews. What we got was far below our expectations. I stayed with my girlfriend for 4 nights and we had a double room. It seems the Swiss manager has been bought our by some people from Nairobi and service has dropped to "good" by African standards. The price has... More

We stayed here for two nights during a longer trip around Kenya. The hotel is set back from the beach and is a short matatu ride away from the centre of Diani. However it has all the essential tourist amenities for a very reasonable price. The ensuite rooms are very clean and comfortable with A/C fridges and tvs. They are... More

I spent new years here with my family including children. Together with the extra holiday supplement the hotel was not worth the price. The room price (since they charge per person) came up to almost what you would pay at Sarova and Whitesands which are so much nicer hotels. What was most annoying was how penny-penching the hotel was. Our... More
