Jacaranda is looking and feeling good after their renovation. I stayed in the ocean front rooms - i don't think you can sleep closer to the ocean at any hotel in Diani. The gardens are beautiful, the rooms are comfortable. We had some beautiful outside dining experiences. The General manager runs a good ship.

The place has so much potential, it's really almost impossible not to turn it into a gold mine.  However, somebody must have but a lot of time and energy in showing the world how it still can be done. The ingredients of this recipe are... More

Everything was great overall, the service exceeded our expectations. The resort can easily fulfil even the most luxurious and sophisticated needs of the most demanding visitors.
