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.
