We Honeymooned at the Diani Reef in August and feel we couldnt of picked a better hotel, it was beautiful. The staff are a credit to the hotel and didnt want you to lift a finger, we felt really pampered. The reps are employed by the hotel rather than a travel agent which worked really well. The beach was one... More

We spent a lovely week at this hotel back in October and it was wonderful. We were greeted at the airport by 2 lovely taxi drivers driving little old fashioned taxis...they gave us a welcome bottle of water to drink and cool flannels to freshen up with. The journey through Mombasa is definitely an eye opener and very bumpy as... More

The hotel is clean and generally well maintained although there are some minor things which need attention but taking into account the location it was much as expected. One... More

This was the first real holiday my husband and I have had since our honeymoon 8 years ago. I really wanted something relaxing and romantic. I have very high standards when it comes to resorts and hotels, but this place met all my expectations. The lobby was beautiful. When we checked into our room, which was a basic ocean facing...

We stayed at Diani Reef for 10 nights in September 2007 and it was fantastic. Very clean hotel, the staff are all friendly and happy to help you, the setting was beautiful - right on the beach and as long as you have your hotel beach towel with you the beach hawkers (of which there are a lot!) do not...
