This hotel is literally on the beach! What great value! The pool is lovely and the staff friendly. The rooms are clean with local TV, daily water bottles, a hot shower and a balcony over looking the pool or sea. A manager organised daily fun activities - croquet, water polo etc. However, the food is very local........chicken, rice, fish most...

I was very skeptical when booking Plaza mainly because there are so many negative reviews out there it can be a bit daunting to even consider staying here. I was pleasantly surprised though by the rooms, staff and facilities Plaza is, quite simply, beautiful. Well maintained buildings, pool and grounds. However, if you're after a luxury holiday, don't go here...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and though the staff were excellent and the hotel in a good location, it still left a lot to be desired. This hotel requires urgent refurbishment and upgrade to bring it up to standard. It clearly has a lot of potential and being on the beach, it has the makings of a...

Very friendly manager (Dennis) and staff. Nice views over beach and sea. Room was fine except for old, sometimes stained towels, often having to ask staff for sufficient number of towels. No hot water for showers or washing in the mornings. Lack of choice at dinner buffet, and if served outside tended to be cold. Breakfast sometimes chaotic, running out...

Plaza Beach is an average place at the beach side. Here hotels are next to each other at the beach - but not that crowdy as in Diani Beach. Plaza Beach has a pool and direct acces to the beach. It is not one of the huge, crowdy hotels - more local minded. Breakfast was very fine. We didnt have...

Dennis and his team were very professional. The sea view room was what we asked for and was granted. The dinner setting by the pool for my husbands birthday was perfect. The check in and check out was efficient. The dinner setting by the pool was spectacular. And the cake! Wow! The hotel may consider diversifying the menu and replace...
