Having just returned from Diani sea Lodge after a 2 week holiday with my girlfriend I can only say good things about this hotel. We were unsure about it at first after reading previous reviews but we loved it. Firstly the staff to this hotel are a credit every single member of staff are so polite and have all the time in the world for you. Everyone greets you with Jambo or have a nice day. The animation team are Fantastic Victor, Safari, Daniel, Irene and Mishi they are forver organising activities and have a great sense of humour, our holiday would not have been the same without them. Actvities such as Beach Volleyball, Beach football, coconut throwing and bowls along with other activities are all on offer.
The food in the hotel is the only thing that could be a bit better. Breakfast was good with choice of sausages, bacon, eggs and other traditional breakfast foods. We opted for lunch in the snack bar with choices such as pizza, chips, burgers and toasties and dinner varied each night sometimes it was good other times not so good. Again the staff in the restaurant are so friendly and helpful.
The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. We did not spend much time in here except for sleeping but were cleaned on a daily basis and met our needs.
As for other comments the monkeys are not to much of a bother infact sometimes it is kind of funny the only hassle i had in the whole 2 weeks was a monkey stealing my fanta but the security are forever scaring them off if they are bothering anyone.
The Beachboys are annoying the first couple of days but then become friends with you they are only trying to make a living. We didn't buy off them and it was no problem at all. Although I would say don't go to the shop of the guy who trys to give you a keyring with your name on it he trys to rip you off.
Overall we had a great stay in the Diani Sea Lodge and would go back in a minute
