Brussels, Belgium26 contributions2 helpful votes
The resort is very big and very well designed. I liked a lot the space and all the facilities it offers. Staff is nice and friendly in general but I loved the way in which the receptionist called Mwende was treating me and my colleague. She was super gentle and nice trying to accommodate all our needs! She was fantastic! Very responsive and helpful as well as joyful. Sometimes the food at the “à la carte” restaurant was not great. I had food poisoning at day 2 after eating cocked fish. Also I tried the SPA massage and the woman that attended me was not very nice. I had requested a massage of 60 min but in the end she did Only 30 min and she wanted me to pay for one hour. But after a bit of explanation she gave me a discount.

Hotel's Favorite
I loved the time that I had spend in the Hotel. It was the best 10 days experience I have had in the south coast. The staff was my absolute favorite part because they were all extremely kind, open hearted, patient and resourceful and they provided the best hospitality. The food was beyond amazing as well as the safety measures taken. One other favorite part of my trip there was the Entertainment which was provided by the Zuri team. this team was very special and remarkable in terms of performance, friendliness and having fun. The team really showed my Family and I a really good time and I appreciate their hard work and resentment. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in the South coast, Diani and I would visit there again.

My wife and I came to Diani not for holiday but for her to have surgery done on her shoulder. So having a place with great staff, food and service was very important as she was staying at the Reef for a couple of days of R&R. Mwende and intern (has done far and above most seasoned veterans). She not only moved us to a first floor room so my wife wouldn't have to go up stairs, she also put in the room snacks with the message get well soon. Just a special touch for my wife who is in a lot of pain. If the Reef doesn't hire Mwende I know of a lot of places that would love to have a person like her. To be honest all the staff have been excellent and many know that my wife had just come from surgery and they were wishing her well. I can't say enough about this place. Come to Diani and stay at the Reef, you won't be disappointed.
