We returned from this lovely hotel just over a week ago, and can think of nothing to say which hasn't already been said many times over. Having chosen this hotel based on all the positive Trip Adviser reviews, I was a little apprehensive after reading a couple of negative comments shortly before we were due to travel, however, I needn't have worried as everything was as good as we hoped for. Henk and Elma met us upon our arrival to give a brief introduction, and immediately made us feel welcome. After this, they always made a point of chatting to the guests at least once a day to ensure everything was OK, and to offer any tips and advice we may have needed. All of the staff were very friendly, particularly the animation team and pool guys, who ensured that our sunbeds were ready for us in our usual place each morning! The food was always of a high standard with a good choice of dishes available. On the one occasion where there wasn't a dish to the liking of all of our party (Indian night), the chef prepared an alternative choice. Unfortunately, due to advice received from the FCO, Thomson decided to curtail our holiday, so we were unable to carry out all we had planned, such as the village and beach walks. On the day of our departure, Henk and Elma re-arranged meal times to ensure we had our meal before we had to leave for the airport. They also boarded our coach to wish us a safe journey, and were greeted with a huge round of applause by all - a pretty good indication of everybody's appreciation. This is a friendly, well run, intimate hotel, but without at any time feeling intrusive. I would love to return in the future once things settle down again in the area, and in the meantime hope that everyone connected with the tourist trade in and around Mombasa weathers the storm
