Having stayed 5 days at the Driftwood this October, I felt I had to write a review. This is a wonderful place to relax and recharge.
There are so many things going for the Driftwood that I can't list them all here but some of the main ones I felt were:
- Very unobtrusive - being a club it lacks any of the normal package hotel type obtrusiveness you find so often around the world and especially on the Kenyan coast these days. You can really unwind.
- A wonderful atmosphere - very friendly and relaxed - it certainly lives up to its "Informality at its Best" slogan
- Great menu - we ate very well. A wide choice of dishes, especially seafood. If you like prawns, lobster and seafish, you will love the food here.
- A great place for family - our young son had a fantastic time.
All in all, I would most certainly recommend the Driftwood to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing holiday at the Kenyan coast.
