spent a week at xmas with family including 3 teenagers.
great location, sea was great, facilities of hotel good and recommend the diving as the padi school on site led by Bahati was excellent and cost reasonable - my two teenage daughters learnt to dive. Fishing also good and use the hotel guys for booking everything - you do get good deals. hasstle on the beach was not so bad as 5 years ago and they are aware if you say no they are not allowed to pester you.we had a great holiday - not much entertainment for the older kids so keeping them busy in the day is key to that. Younger kids have minigolf, pingpong and plenty to do.
i do recommend the place as is reasonable cost but
The one big disappointment which is such a pity as all else was great was
a/ The food was awful - would be so simple to sort this out - half the hotel guests i spoke to had had a bad stomach- diani sea lodge needs to sort this out.
b/ ask for the Bahari rooms as they are up to date and much nicer than the standard rooms which are really basic
c/ the all inclusive drinks were ok but if only could have been served cold ( as its hot) and the beer was generally a bit flat.
please ask me for any more inf0 - if you go with Thompson i think they could be doing more for their customers as in the airport transfer was awful and not well managed and their information is pretty thin.
