We stayed at Jannat for 6 nights at the beginning of August. The hotel is a very nice swaili house well renovated and with a lot of terraces with sofas where you can relax. The gardens are also very nice, there is a cool atmosphere and the personnel is friendly and helpful. However the place is surely not a boutique hotel as it is advertised. We were given the best room, but even there there was no hot water. Our room was very large and very nicely decorated, but some of the other rooms we saw were very small and with very poor bathroom facilities. The pool looks nice in the pictures but it is tiny, there is no room to lay down around the pool and it is not cleaned very often (in fact the water looks always not clear). Breakfast was basic. The hotel is also quite far from the main street and to reach it you need to cross quite a lot of back streets full of donkey's escrement and open-air sewage. We discovered that the price was 30-40% higher than equivalent places in Lamu. If you want to stay in Lamu, book a place for the first night and then look around, there are equivalent or better places for much less money.
