Reviewed April 6, 2011

We travelled to Kenya for a specific reason with a group of people (48 people in total).
My family and I stayed there for 6 nights and we were very satisfied with what the hotel offers.

Very friendly and well trained staff.

Excellent Atmosphere, gardens, guest services, spa and hairdresser, lots of choices in the breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets (for every nationality), very tasty coffee! The swimming pools were cleaned 3 times a day, around the rooms there were small ponds that have some black fish that eat the mosquitos's eggs so there are hardly no mosquitos in the hotel...no mosquito bites at all, which is very surprising for that area of Kenya. I found this solution very interesting and environmentally friendly.

The hotel also has a shopping arcade, which has got very reasonable prices. We shopped a lot of souvenirs and some clothes from there and we also got a discount. There is a business center with 4 pc's offering high speed internet to the guests for free.

The rooms were very spacious as well as the bathrooms. We stayed at the Bustani Club and right outside our room, there was a huge swimming pool. Also the beach is very clean and there are Security people guarding the guests' area so that the venders do not bother the guests while relaxing.

In general everything was very nice and i really do not understand how can these bad reviews have been posted in this hotel's profile - they have been very misleading for me.

I believe that whatever reason you travel for, the Leisure Lodge can provide with the best service.

Room Tip: Book a Bustani Club room - It is worth is!

This was our 4th visit to Diani Beach and this was the poorest of Hotels we have ever stayed in. The maintenance of the Hotel is lacking, the rooms are old and poorly equipped. ( We had to change the TV and fridge since both were not working ) The choice at buffet is very limited. The Hotel specifically caters for the German tourist, and the way they like it and if you are not german, you can not even read the info regarding excursions. To have our table designated to us, reminds me of boarding school, even your beach chairs have a number, never experienced anything like this. The staff is the only thing that made our stay pleasant, as usual the Kenyan staff was friendly and helpful. If you decide to go to Diani, which is an absolutely beautiful beach, stay at Diani Reef or Leopard beach, which both offer a lot better value for money.

Be careful when booking at the Leisure Lodge Resort, the hotel management tends to downgrade Bustani bookings into “Superior Room”, so experienced very recently. The rooms allocated were in the old part of the hotel complex, one room experienced problems with the air conditioner, the other was not prepared to receive any quests.

We wanted to have a dinner for our wedding anniversary at Leisure lodge during a theme dinner which was set in the garden. It was a regretful bad idea which did spoiled our evening.
Arrrived at the restaurant we were refused a table as we did not match with their standard. My wife was wearing very elegant clothes and jewellery , myself a casual shirt with smart bermudas over the knees. We were then told to wait as the manager should be called.....and we wait there for 15 minutes in front of everyone at the restaurant entrance everybody watching at us like catched thieves.
This is how Leisure lodge treat their guests.
Being refused a table and be left there without care made the worst restaurant experience of my life.
We were then send back out of the hotel and went somewhere else more welcoming for dinner.

We stayed at the Leisure Hotel in the club section. The rooms there are larger than the ones at the hotel, and the rooms/bunglows are located around two big pools - whereas the hotel section offers sea-side view. Leisure Lodge is characterized by very friendly staff and a great setting at the Indian Ocean in a big park with old big trees - among them huge Boabab trees - and palms.
The food is nice, even though not the very best at the South Coast, the service in the restaurants and in the rooms was very good and attentive - especially noticeable when one of us didn't feel well for a couple of days.
Both food and drings were rather inexpensive for a 4-5 star place. Great value for money!

This is a very large large establishment with one hotel part and one club part. When we stayed here the club part was practically empty. The hotel part (where we stayed and spent the vast majority of our time, eventhough we were allowed to enter the club part) consists of a main building with lobby, restaurant, shops, bars, casino, "disco" etc and 6 2-storeys wings for hotel rooms facing either the upper pool area or the beach (i think almost all rooms have some sea glimpse). The rooms are fairly spatious and have AC and good beds, the bath rooms however are not recently renovated and their standard differed between our rooms and our friends rooms. The garden is beautiful and calm, there are sun beds both in the garden and on the beach. The staff was very friendly and let us e.g. check out late and stored some of our luggage during our safari, everything at no extra cost. We had booked half board which consisted of breakfast, afternoon tea (including cakes and sandwiches) and dinner. You do not need moch more food than that, I normally had only soup for lunch at the beach bar. The dinner was very good with either a 6-7 course set menu or a buffet with a specific theme (such as barbeque or chinese). There are a lot of activities such as beach volleyboll, try golf, village tour, swahili, try scuba evening show etc, most of them at no cost (however some tipping is sometimes expected). The concept is that you shall spend all your time (and money) within the hotel, but you can walk out on the road (after a guard has opened the gate) and go to a mini market 200 m to the right or to a bank, shopping center and supermarket 1 km to the left. Notable is that the price we paid was roughly 50 % lower than the hotel list price (we booked through a local travel agent, Kuoni) and i think this hotel is very price worthy e.g in comparison with the more expensive neighbour Leopard Beach (which we visited for a lunch one day). To conclude our review: We are very satisfied with our stay at Leisure Lodge and may return if we go to Kenya again.
