A wonderful, relaxing experience.
Tony Roberts,Cambridge 12th February 2009
I am amazed and perplexed at reading some of the spiteful comments contained in recent reviews.
We have just returned from our 2nd stay in Peponi and expect to visit on many more occasions.
The setting is lovely and it is hard to better the sunrise over the water and Manda Island and then followed by an early walk along a truly magnificent beach before breakfast. The hotel is not 5 star, but star ratings do not apply in Lamu. Peponi is extremely comfortable and clean, very well maintained with superb service from all levels of staff, many of whom have spent most of their working lives at Peponi. Management and in particular the owners, are extremely competent,attentive and friendly.
The bar is a truly multicultural, multilingual watering hole and is obviously 'the place' on Lamu to meet and socialise.
The restaurant which offers dining inside or 'al fresco ' on the verandah overlooking the sea is of a very high standard and serves excellent fish and sea food in particular.
For accommodation the choice is between 'standard' or 'superior'.
For most guests, the standard rooms are more than acceptable offering large beds, plenty of space and comfortable external verandahs and sitting areas.
Overall Peponi is a wonderful place to escape from the rest of the world whilst enjoying the old charm of Lamu Island.
