This is a spectacular place of relaxation and tranquility! Beautiful ocean views and a friendly atmosphere that welcomes you like an old friend. The cottages are perfect and we enjoyed fresh seafood everyday prepared by our wonderful cook. We also did two of the trips: starfish colony and the Africa pools and both were fantastic! Our guide (Amos) was friendly, attentive and very knowledgable. It was truly an eye opening experience. I would highly recommend both of these little excursions (they are about two hours each in length). As well, if you are planning a trip into Mombasa, we would highly recommend our taxi driver Chideri who is professional and fair. He arranged a walking tour of Old Town with a local guide named Shariff. Chideri made sure we got a fair price for the tour and Shariff was awesome! He knew all sorts of interesting facts and knew pretty much every local we passed. Highly recommended!!
