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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

I was led to reserve this hotel for an old friend of mine by Booking.Com. It is far from being a 'small intimate hotel' it has at least 250 rooms and my guest WAS THE ONLY PERSON STAYING THERE. The Plaza should not take in excess of $500 for a three night stay in this morgue.

I stayed here a few months back, and really enjoyed myself. It's a small quiet hotel with all the rooms facing the sea, and if you get the front rooms, you can actually see everything that is happening on the beach. The food was simple but good. The linens were new and rooms simply furnished but very clean. The showers... More
