I loved the location and this beautiful property, not too far from the city, yet secluded from the maddening traffic of Mombasa. The beach is right across your balcony, and its pretty much clean and secured. The spa is also nice and clean.
Its fun place for kids as well, as they have a dedicated kids pool with water slides. My two boys were just unstoppable, running all around, jumping in the pool, running on the beaches, building their own castles of sand.
Most of the A-la-carte items and drinks in the bar are fairly priced.
I didn't really like the taste of the food, too bland, non-appealing, and they can really do something about the presentation. Though the staff is courteous in the dinning hall and other restaurant/bar, but when you ask them for a simple bottle of water, they really take atleast 15-20 min to come back with it...that too with couple of gentle reminders. We were there for 4 days, and it happened every single time. I understand the kind of guests they have at any given point of time, but if these things are happening because of shortage of staff, then they really need to hire quite a lot of people. Another thing I was quite amazed at was when I asked for a "fresh lime soda". How difficult is it to understand what i really want? I even told them how to make, but I was disappointed when they didn't even try to make one for me.
But overall, a nice vacation at Whitesands for me and my family.
