5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Really nice hotel. It is not new and you can see that in your room or near the beach, but this hotel is clean, has friendly staff, good food and nice beach. We really enjoyed our stay here. The only thing we didn't like - uncomfortable beds. It took time to get used to bed.

Room with sea view was excellent. Staff very friendly, courteous but slow service in the restaurant. Different local entertainment every night was good. Hotel offers various activities for all to participate. The hotel is mainly for Germans who were very friendly. The beach activities look good as wells the sky diving which the beach wind are ideal for. However……………It is... More

The hotel was lovely and unbelievably friendly. The room me and friends had was a nice room with four poster bed and a very large bathroom with all the necessary mod cons. The food was varied and delicious and catered for all tastes. The evening entertainment was super, ranging from African dancers, to acrobats to Masai Warriors chanting and dancing.Indeed,... More

Service is very bad... staff denied me water at 12.40 am sayin bar is closed. On top of that he suggested that I should use the water which they have kept in the bathroom. Everytime I asked for bear it took them 10-15mins to serve. I think it's better to go in cash hotel rather than all inclusive which this... More

Dear Harshvardhan, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We apologize that our bar closes at midnight. We therefore provide mineral water in the rooms. We will look into the issue of the service taking long at the bar. We do hope you will give us another chance. Kind regards, The DSL Team More

The hotel was very clean and the staff couldn't be more helpful. There was no tele or phone in the room so any queries meant a trip to reception. There is no iron available so make sure you iron everything before you arrive, although you can pay for an ironing service. The food was good. I was in Kenya for... More

We spent Christmas and enjoyed the spacious room facing the sea, high quality of food and friendly staff. The sunbeds facing the sea are great but remember to get up early and put your towel on your favorite before the other tourists!?!
