My boyfriend and I stayed here during the low rainy summer season and actually had a pretty fun time! We did a half board, dinner was awesome and the staff gave us such a nice room as it was quiet (room 118). There was loads to do: 2 pools, bar with Wimbledon/euros on, beach access, scuba diving and a super... More

I was at the hotel for a week during December and I have nothing but praises for the hotel. The rooms are lovely, staff very friendly and the food was absolutely worth it. The fact that it doesn't get too crowded means it's even better.

On checkin, coming tired after an early morning flight to Mombasa, I was nicely greeted by being asked to pay for the full stay in the amount about double then i received confirmation from booking.com - strike one.

Venue - not luxurious (when compared to standard/price offered in Asia) but pretty and comfortable (standard Africa) Beach - is there in the morning but gone in the evening with the tide. Picturesque and relatively peaceful once you've been stern with the sellers and glass bottom boat men. Good for a morning run. The seaweed is raked up daily. Noon... More

The Resort was great for me as i was able to relax in the evening after a long day at work. The employees were friendly and polite. The view of the beach was amazing. The resort is old and requires some touchups, but the service makes up for that. The food and entertainment was great.
