Tripadvisor has Diani Beach as one of the best places to visit in Africa and as beaches go it is pretty stunning. When the tide is out the beach is several hundreds of metres wide and you can walk into the ocean a long way. The water is lovely and the walk up the beach in the daytime is well...

The only complaint is their food menu wasn't as diverse so the food was more of a repetition daily . But for all an inclusive hotel, we had a good time for the 7 days we were there. The drinks are free, happy hour is all day lol. The staff was amazing always eager to help.

Lovely layout of the lodge. Great view of the Indian ocean as we ate. Excellent customer service. Very clean rooms (just that towels need to be conditioned to smell better). Great entertainment and ambience created to usher in the new year. We really enjoyed our 4 nights stay.
