We spent 10 nights in this hotel in February/March 2014 and had a great time. The animation team always had something going on, from beach and pool activities to cooking demos, swahili lessons and village trips. However, if like us you just wanted a quiet relaxing holiday you were left alone to do your own thing. We were told by our tour operator that there would be no rep service in the resort (which proved to be incorrect) so we organised our safari before we travelled with J T Safaris in Diani Beach. We did 4 days in Tsavo East, West and Amboseli and had the most wonderful time. If you use JT ask for Baker to be your driver.
We asked the hotel for a ground floor room as my husband has walking difficulties and they put us in a room in an ideal location half way between the reception and amenities. The rooms are in little rondelles with 3 or 4 rooms in each. We had a nice little patio with two chairs and tables and plenty of visiting monkeys. We stayed in a standard room with a large bed and plenty of storage space but the decor is a bit rustic which we found added to the charm.
The grounds are beautiful and well kept with butterflies, birds and monkeys all easy to spot. The beach is lovely white sand and there were only a few beach boys trying to get you on boats, paragliders etc. We found the hotel staff very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They worked very hard especially on Thursdays when they have to move the entire restaurant on to the lawn for the barbecue. The food in the snack restaurant was lovely but only had about 7 dishes included in the all-inclusive package. The main restaurant had a large variety of all kinds of food to suit any taste with plenty of fresh fruit and veg and the desserts are to die for.
Can't wait to go back
