The resort has a wonderful atmosphere. Big beautiful and clean swimming pool in a palm garden. Very friendly bar with live music on a rock. Decent rooms and all with terrace that evening may appear monkeys. Beware - they like Fanta :-). Sea corresponds Africa. Definitely not a beach on a blue flag, but quite OK. Beautiful large garden. What...

Terrible terrible place! Food was atrocious. Rooms were tired and old looking. Only saving grace was that they were cleaned to a good standard. The bathroom was dark and dingy and stuck in the seventies. They had salt water coming from the taps, so mineral water is a must. The only positive thing about this place is the stunning beach...

I don't know about the other beach hotels around the place but my word, Flamingo is just great. Have stayed two days there and the experience was wonderful. They have a great pool and a great view of the ocean. Great food, sad I can't say the same about the staff. Well they are just average but as for the...

The hotel is not very glamorous but serves its purpose. The room was neat though generally a little dated. Though wifi was available, it was not easily accessible in the rooms. The television was also not working despite being fixed the first night. Breakfast at the hotel was ok. Nothing spectacular. The food was however fresh and I particularly liked...

Of all the places, I loved the pool. The place spells serenity. The prices are somewhat pocket friendly compared to neighboring hotels. Service is average,great see view, the meals are good or shall I say just as good as their prices.

Have stayed in this facility twice. One was a total disappointment, the other one was average. In first, I arrived late and checked in without fuss. The security guard who escorted me to the room started demanding for tips aggressively. Water was very very salty and the hotel indicated that their desalination machine was broken down. Food was just flat...

It's a nice and a cosy hotel with warm and friendly staff. Service is good. The seminar hall and all amenities are equally good. The food is ok though there can be more room for improvement. Overall, a good place.

I stayed here during Christmas and New Year (accommodation and breakfast) while volunteer working during the days at the nearby Lioness Cubs Orphanage. This was my 5th visit to Kenya. I thought that the staff was very friendly and helpful, good food and very nice pool area with a lovely palm-fringed beach just in front of the property. The room...
