I have never been more disappointed by a hotel's selection and quality of food than at Amani Tiwi. During my 4 day stay here, the breakfast menu has been limited, repetitive and not well done. The lunch menu is even more depressing. Dinner on the 3 days has also not been worth it. I have loved everything else about this...

I did enjoy my time there the room was spacious however it took time before they were cleaned. The pool was ok but not clean some parts were slimy a few of my friends fell sick (bacterial infection). Overall rating was 2.5/2.9 rating

Checked in just to sample the place for a night. The reception was awesome as the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The pool is cool and the views are amazing. Looking forward for a longer stay during the year.

Located along the white sandy beaches of the South Coast Kenya is Amani TIWI an amazing property that is home to bat eating crows, blue balled monkeys and cute nocturnal shell crabs.

Perhaps one of the things i enjoyed most was the exclusive location of this hotel with no other major establishment in the vicinity making it tranquil and intimate. However, one could walk for about 30 minutes to Diani beach with it's long chain of hotels. The meals were great, large swimming pool (more like swimming area seeing as it covered...

We were very disappointed with this resort, the staff are very unfriendly. The food is alright, however the servers are hard to find. There was never enough cups for water, there was no spoons for the coffee. The all inclusive drinks were some brand I've never heard of, local Tusker beer is not even included in the all inclusive deal....

The hotel rooms and facilities are very good and pleasing, but the service from the waiters and staff was below par for such a lovely place.
