I stayed at Sandies Tropical Village in August 2021 and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Due to an early morning flight to Malindi, they allowed us to check in before check in hours which was very gracious of them. The food was good with a wide variety and rooms were clean. The one thing I really loved was the entertainment. I particularly want to acknowledge SHABAN in the animation team who was very attentive to guests and ensured we had a good time. The day activities included water aerobics, walks to Vasco Dagama, gold beach among others. Other activities include table tennis, darts, pool and even disco which was actually lots of fun in the evening. So I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone considering it.

Sandies has opened after a long shut down due to covid. Getting back recently to welcoming guests. The check in was smooth, they do ask what time you will arrive so that they can prepare the room for your arrival but normally check in is at 2pm. STAFF I would like to give a great applaud to the staff, especially Grace at reservations, she was very patient and took all my enquiries into consideration. The front desk office, wendy, collins, samuele actually all of them were very considerate and helpful. Animation team Shaban made a great effort with my kids. All the kids and adults loved him. F and B manager Timothy very kind and considerate. All the staff made great effort to serve you at there best. My Second time at plan hotel and will definitely return. I think it's a great deal as they dont charge kids under 12years which is very difficult to get in most hotels. They take care of kids very well. ROOMS They have 2 other sister hotels...Dream Garden and Dream of Africa within the vicinity, that caters for all your tastes as in comfort in rooms and privileges. Do enquire more when making your booking. The room is a very simple, basic concept. Was kept clean. Sandies does not have TV in the rooms but has a big space for upto 4 beds. They do have a lounge in the main area with a TV or the animation team shows movies or cartoons for kids after 8pm at there theatre. FOOD They provide a vegetarian section and food was always great. I would just request for them to make there buffet for non vegetarians abit more interesting. Though salad, soup and desserts were great. BEACH Has a great beach view with sunbeds. ACTIVITIES Canoeing, beach volleyball, water polo, water aerobics. Speak to Shaban he can organise any games even for kids in the pool.

The place Is beautiful but unfortunately quite outdated. We had to wait nearly two hours to get a connecting room that was disconnected by a staircase. The food variety is good, but the quality is below average and the all-inclusive drinks are the cheapest of the cheapest. We had the feeling they cared more for an upcoming wedding than for their guests. At least the staff was very kind, helpful and very friendly. They made the stay enjoyable. Thanks a lot to all of them.

This hotel has a few different names so don't be fooled you are booking a nicer place as it seems to have changed names quite a bit. There is Sandies Dream Garden and Diamonds Dream of Africa that are one and the same hotel. The service will remain mediocre at best. Regrettably I chose half board for my stay and the food was similar to canteen dinners at school. There was absolutely no variety and just the same old each evening. After day 4, I was so happy to get back home to make my own food. I have stayed in other half board hotels (notably Tanzania) where the food was varied and tasty. Overall I would say there was very little effort put into the creation and preparation of the meals, probably due to laziness or budget. The rooms we stayed in had problems as we were swapped out of one room but the bathrooms are quite telling. The place is in dire need of a refurb - the cracks on the tiles and floors are very telling - possibly subsidence but the doors and handles are filthy and worn on both rooms we stayed in. The icing on the cake was the $8 pina colada that tasted like something resembling kerosene. I sent it back the first time but the second version was not much better and neither of us would drink it. If you get a good deal here then my recommendation would be to avoid the food as much as possible and go buy your own alcohol in the town. The location is fantastic, but the

As I was walking in guess the are some receptionist are unprofessional. They can’t even escort you to your room . They show you where the room is and That’s all. The don’t know even how to talk with guest. When I got there I always request to be served with Mr Dicson he is the only professional reseptionist worker thank you so much. At the restaurant Sidi served me very well after waiting for 2 hr to be served.
