Our second week in Kenya (after week 1 on safari) and it was absolutely amazing. In April the hotel was really empty so we basically had a private pool - which was very large and always had some part in the shade which was great for me as usually I don't like to swim during the heat of the day due to my fair skin. Staff were very attentive and friendly and room was always well made up. There was always a large choice to food available as it was buffet service and meal times were very convenient.
One thing to note is the journey time from mombassa airport. You have to travel across a ferry which means the journey can take between 2 and 4 hours in a very hot humid climate! Once we arrived though we stayed in the hotel complex throughout our entire stay
Word of advice for general when travelling in Kenya - take some small change with you as everyone expects a tip. Although while at the hotel we just left a tip at the end of our stay for the staff who we had been served by. (April is off peak so there was limited staff on but still often more staff than guests).
Trip booked through http://www.explorerkenya.com/ who were fab and we would definitely recommend.
