We stayed at this hotel from 29 December to 2 January 2014. The hotel lobby is beautiful but that is just where the beauty ends, the rooms are musty, linen is old, not enough beach towels, staff kept promising to bring us towels but never did, the New Year's Eve dinner was grossly expensive, the least they could have done...

Excellent place for family. Good environment, food, hotel rooms and outdoor activities all exceptional. It also has its own beach where you can feel comfortable and security is also exceptional. They also have different themes and dinner setting which provide good entertainment for the family and friends. And they also have their own night club within the hotel if you... More

Let's face it - if you're going to Diani beach, you won't be spending much time in the hotel room. Which is just as well since the rooms here are small and musty. We also had to change rooms twice as the toilets didn't work. The resort grounds are well maintained and quite large. Avoid the buffet food altogether it's... More

I have visited your hotel twice now .. the second time because a friend insisted that we give you a second try but just like the first time i was highly disappointed. The rooms and facilities are sub standard, the buffet is rather too boring and repetitive, on the 3rd day we actually went elsewhere to eat after seeing what... More

Lovely experience, the hotel was of high standard and the beach was clean. The food was excellent and the service amazing. Bathrooms need a refurbishment but not too bad. The water sport section was abit overpriced for Kenya and was not manned so it took ages to find out the rates.

Stayed here early March 2014. First off, when we first arrived the treatment could be better. We were kept waiting with our bags, after a long drive, as the sole receptionist tended to other guests. When we finally got our room, the AC was in a horrible state and the room had a damp odour. Clearly it had not been... More
