When you arrive, many of the people say "Welcome to Paradise" and this is fairly accurate. The hotel staff as many of the reviews say are 1st class and make you feel very welcome in particular Ratibu and Khamis (Hamish) and Daniel the drinks waiters as well as the rest of the team including the G.M. Who makes a point of meeting everyone. The food is great with plenty of variety for all and the accommodation is also very good, we had one of the sea view room by the beach and the view is something special. Not quit sure why this is not a four star? Also the lads on the beach are a friendly bunch and we struck up a friendship with Tony and James and yes they want to sell their stuff but also enjoy a good conversation and are happy to tell you anything about the area, they will also leave you alone if asked politely. We went on a three day safari from here and this was also first class ( All with Thompson's) . The diving season starts in October for real but i did get a shallow dive in at 9m and there was a fair bit of sea weed on the beach that can't be cleared as it in the park but not a big issue. We played golf in Malindi which is about 25 mins away but there is a championship course about 80k's away by taxi although my wife found walking around the shops etc in Malindi an experience, need to keep your wits about you for pick pockets but not any worse than any western city or town these days. We will be back at some point in the future for sure. We were there for two weeks at the end of July / early August
