The stay at the hotel was fantastic once again. The staff is absolutely perfect! But we had issues with the restaurant: we had a problem with the lobster, we were advised to go and discussed with the chef but he insulted us and was so arrogant! The waitresses (apart from 2) were also not professional at all, confusing orders, not...

We used the place for lunch and a day by the beach. They had free sun beds both in the shade and sun with a fantastic view over Diani Beach. The menu card was good with good value when you consider the location. We had wraps, seafood, club sandwich all good quality. We can not comment on the rooms just...

This was my second time staying at Kenyaways and I honestly didn't consider going any place else given my wonderful experience last time. While Diani beach is littered with big resorts that lack charm, Kenyaways is a beautiful breezy open little hotel by one of the best parts of Diani beach. I stayed in Rebel (with two single beds) this...

We had an excellent week long stay. All the staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The food was great and very well priced. Would recommend Kenaways to anyone whether your kiting, surfing or just chilling on the beach.

We stayed in the hotel for four nights and had a wonderful time. The staff is always nice and helpful. The Lymington's Restaurant offers nice selection of food and everything we had was really tasty. We are going back for sure.

We stayed for 4 nights in January 2017 and had a perfect end to our trip to Kenya. We stayed in "Bolt" which has access to a plunge pool which nobody else used the whole time we were there - nice to have a private area to relax and we were kept company by monkeys (including colobus) and all sorts...

We have stayed in Kenyaways as a couple for a week. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is a nice spot for kitesurfing. We had good wind for 5 days out of 7. It would have been nicer if they could provide tropical fruit other than breakfast. We had to buy from sellers on the beach which you should...

Quite simply the best - I keep going back again again and again... The staff, the room, the location, the food and excellent weather - you cannot wish for more. Flights from JKIA to Ukunda make the trip stress free.
