Which hotel? Not much good at distances but it must be 4 or 5 miles from end to end. If you stay down at Neptune end its a fair old distance up the lane to bars/restaurants.

as written, it depends on which point of the Diani Beach you are. Also the Galu Beach (Neptune, Pinewood) is a little bit far away from restaurants and bars for walking.

During the day from most of the hotels it is possible to walk or to use a matatu (if you like this - there are many pros and cons regarding them - we are using them) or to go by taxi. When it is dark, it is recommanded not to walk.

Many restaurants are also offering free transports from your hotel and back, e.g. the Galaxy or the Ali Barbours.
