We visited the hotel as part of a wedding celebration. The hotel rooms are tired and in desperate need of refurbishment, and not very clean as there were several inexplicable stains on the floor that never seemed to go away. The bathrooms are quite tiny and also not very clean. We didn't have a safe in our room, and our... More

Staying here for four nights as I type this on Day 2. Rooms are clean and simple. Not massively luxurious but clean with very effective air Condtioning and clean linens, despite bathrooms a little tired. On arrival the General manager came and introduced himself. My brother flew in late the night before from Singapore and the chef and restaurant staff... More

We chose to visit this beautiful beach resort on the Southern Coast of Kenya during April - an off season period. Typically, the off season experience affords more privacy and excellent personal attention, as the guests are fewer. On the flip side, the spread of the buffets are limited. But we have found that most Kenyan hotels are lacking in... More

The rooms were smelling damp, like no one had stayed in it for months. The food was nice. The service was good too; and since we arrived late, they were kind enough to wait for us and we had dinner at around 10pm. They didn't have any activity or entertainment- maybe because of the time of the month that we... More

Lovely beach though beach people can be annoying and ferry from airport always slow but has got better but only just. This hotel good as you get in Kenya but lack of guest makes it... More

The room, very clean and tidy, the food was excellent with a range that suited every pallet, never heard one complaint, the pools were cleaned daily and those lovely clean thick towels that were given to you first thing in the morning meant you started the day on a high. The main reason you should visit this hotel and many... More

This holiday was spoiled by the persistent haranguing and harassment of the huge numbers of highly organised Beach Men who stand in a continual line all along the sands in front of the hotels The minute they see a hapless tourist , moving from the safety of the hotel grounds, towards the beach, they pounce like a pack of hyenas...

Hi, I stayed at your hotel from 9th Feb through to 13th Feb 2016. The hotel is generally nice but I had a problem with water in my bathroom throughout my stay. The staff however were very friendly, attentive, and took care of my every need whenever I called upon them. Apart from the issues of water in the bathroom,... More
