We stayed at Stilts for 2 weeks, and had a really great time. The rooms are all very nice, there's cottages with bathrooms attached (hot water and monkey provided), fans and nets. There's 'treehouses' which also have nets and a small veranda, they're a bit cheaper to stay in. And there's a campsite, which you can use with your own or their tents. Recommended only when you're on a tight budget; it's hot at night!!! But, the cheapest you can get. When you stay in a treehouse or tent you can use the shared bathrooms, which are big, clean and have hot water. They're nicely decorated too ;-)
The restaurant has simple but good food, and the staff is very nice. There's security guards for safety walking around, and a private safe for your valuables. Across the street is an internet cafe and restaurants, the supermarket is a short walk or mataturide away. And, you can álmost see the ocean from a treehouse :-)
We had a great time, and would recommend the place to any backpacker visiting Mombasa/Diani.
