We stayed at Travellers Beach Club (All inclusive) and found the staff to be, in the main, friendly and attentive. The rooms are large and the sea front rooms that we were allocated were equipped with a fridge and effective air conditioning. The rooms are cleaned daily and the bed sheets are changed frequently. Each evening a turn down service is provided which includes the pull round of mosquito nets and a good spray of insect repellent.
The Animation Team appeared to be rather disorganised at first with the animation centre being a real mess and the some staff lacking the usual enthusiasm that we have experienced previously in Kenya. Thankfully things did improve, particularly the Kids Programme, with a good variety of trips and activities, although there is still room for improvement. Agnes, Catherine, Lillian and Marco really stood out as doing their very best to ensure everyone, young and old, were entertained and well looked after. A little more variety would go down well as the programmed did become rather repetitive.
The Glass Bottom Boat trip is very good through the hotel. Unlike trips with the beach boys, the hotel orgainsed trip includes a guided snorkelling trip around the coral reef so you really get to see the reef and inhabitants at it's best.
The Christmas Eve Gala meal, which took place at the front of the Hotel, was very good. The staff worked hard to transform the area into something really quite magical. There was a wide selection of food and the evening entertainment was of a good standard. (Probably the best Christmas Eve Gala that we have attended).
Wi Fi is available and the Fitness Centre is well equipped and air conditioned. There are squash and tennis courts.
The food, as mentioned by others, is below par. The breakfast is about the best, but still limited. The snack bar is the worst I've encountered. Despite the very limited menu, often it would take upto an hour for the order to be recieved.
The hotel layout makes you feel somewhat hemmed in. It is divided into two parts with a private, self catering apartment complex dividing the Travellers Club and Hotel. The result is two long, narrow channels with the accomodation running the length of each.
The bathrooms really need an update. They appear to have been installed in the 1970's without any upgrading in the meantime.
Some people on All Inclusive did make the most of the available alcohol and wound up "taking over" the small evening entertainment area. The behaviour and language, by a small minority of older Brits was embarrassing and shocking. Although, after some hotel management intervention, the individuals did tone down their behaviour, they did still behave as if they owned the place.
We have travelled to Kenya on many occassions, staying at different hotels and resorts. Travellers Beach is good for a short break, but on a Half Board basis. I would not stay here on All Inclusive again.
