It took me long to decide whether to try this hotel because I read many bad critics about service. In the end I was really happy I booked it. The architecture is one of the best I have ever seen in Kenia.The cascade pool is lovely. Also the gardens are very well done and the trees have name tags, which was quite interesting to see. The rooms were amazing - very big, new and beautifully furnished. When we arrived we were welcomed very warmly and the staff brought us a whole cake and bottle of campaign for our honeymoon.Service was really good there so I can only assume that because this hotel is quite new, it took them a while to get things organized but now they seem pretty much on track. The food is also really nice - from all five hotels we have booked for this holiday they had by far the best deserts. We booked full board and for lunch they have a big menu to chose, which also includes fillet steak and great fish. It is served at the beach with really nice atmosphere. At the beach bar you can listen so chill out music in the evenings and can have a shisha/waterpipe. If you get bored they offer some water volleyball, beach walks and there is also table tennis. Beachboys are there but not too many, so you really never feel disturbed. The sunbeds are super cosy and there are enough of them for everyone. The only thing we did not like too much was the fact that the pool was still being cleaned at 9.00 am even though it was supposed to be open as of 7.00 am. Also, they did not have all the drinks on the menu at the swim-up pool bar, but the staff was willing to get them from the restaurant for us. If you want really cold beer, ask for a wine cooler with ice :-)
