We have just spent two weeks at Mawimbi. What a delightful place! Run by the delightful Giovanni. Nothing was ever too much trouble for the plentiful and ever attentive staff who do everything with a will and a smile. The whole place is refreshingly clean and well appointed and well maintained. There is plenty of space for everything from outdoor loungers to the cleanest swimming pool I've used. Covers for the loungers are taken in every evening and replaced clean and dry each morning. Security is top rate - the Maasai watchmen are lovely and patrol all night!. Quiet and sensibly laid out to give plenty of privacy. There is ALWAYS someone at the reception desk until late in the evening. The well prepared food is good and fresh. Breakfasts are individually cooked to order! The tariff is most reasonable, and ALL needs are helpfully attended to. Everything is swept clean every day - even the sandy gardens. Near the beach and the fun-filled "street" there is every reason to stay in this gem by the Indian Ocean. See you again soon as we can, Giovanni, and thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. Steve and Libby
