As others have noted this hotel has a great view of the ocean and surrounding area. Our corner room on the third floor (36) had a spectacular view - staff said the best in the hotel. The pool area is very nice - the views from the outdoors restaurant unbelievable. Staff is extremely helpful and speaks excellent English and Swahili (just kidding). Negative comments would be the price and quality of the restaurant and the overall value of the restaurant experience. ($175 for a dinner for 2). Our value white wine was served warm - on a hot day. Our $18 caesar salad appetizer portion was served without dressing and consisted mostly of croutons. The lettuce was limp and warm, and the Anchovie portion of the salad appeared to be like bacon-bits. Anyway - a very poor execution of a Caesar salad - especially at that price. I had the beef tenderloin in mushroom sauce with mashed potatoes and vegies - which was a very modest portion - but tasty. Isabella had the lobster linguine which was fine - but nothing to write home about. Service was OK. The view spectacular. Breakfast buffet and eggs and pancakes to order were delicious. The only other negative comment is about the noise coming from the pool area late at night. There were a bunch of folks yelling at each other in the hot tub at midnight - our room directly above. We were able to hear it even with ear plugs and pillows over our heads. Not good - I'm surprised they allow this to happen as there are probably 30 rooms within earshot of the pool area. Our room was plain but functional. As others have noted there is no art - minimal furniture etc. But really - we were only sleeping in there so it didn't matter that much.
