The location is lovely and the view is great but that's about it. The food was really average and some of it was burnt. The place itself has a bit of a dirty feel to it. Service was alright and our waitress was fine but overall we were really not impressed with the quality of the food considering the price tag. If the food could be improved then the price would be acceptable but as it is now, its really over-priced for the quality of food that you get.

I absolutely love this place...its such an authentic coastal style club at night, but thankfully there are no traces of the things the dance floor has seen during the day...i love the openness, the little cushions in the mini bandas, the centrally placed bar, the music (to die for), the access to the beach at night...the friendly neighbours dog :) only thing that i was a bit cautious of was the lizards on the straw roof of the dance floor...
such a great place that screams the character of diani, good vibes only :)

Right on the beach, with a finely stocked bar. It is hard to go wrong here if you bring a couple friends. However, the DJ has a tendency to play some horrible tunes from time to time.

Right on the beach, expensive but you're well protected and feel safe but it's all getting a little tatty around the edges...

Needs a bit of a spruce up!!

Especially around New Year, this place is more for the kids (and some of them really are) than the older crowd. That said it's still good for an early evening beer or watching football, as the younger crowd get there later.
