I could not have asked to have stayed at a better place than Alfajiri! You could not ask for a better location - the villas are right on the beach where you can go snorkel and the white sandy beaches surrounding Alfajiri are the best I have ever seen. The services offered are amazing - anything you can think of whether it is a daily massage, trips around the area or safari. The villas are gorgeous, each one with their own design and impeccably done. We spent most of our time around the cliff villa, which has a cliff view of the beach which was gorgeous. My favorite however was the beach villa and the garden villa was also very nice. Everything is well maintained, the villa was very clean and they constantly sprayed for bugs and I always had a good nights sleep in my wonderfully decorated and comfy bedroom. There were always staff around when we needed something and everything was done in a timely manner. The staff were amazing and the food was out of this world. The cooks can make you anything you desire and all of it is freshly made on site. The fish and the pasta were delicious. The safari trip was the highlight, we saw every kind of animal and the Galdessa camp where we stayed is based right on the water and so every day you see other animals coming to drink water and you get to observe all the nature at its best. The staff there were also brilliant and the same standards at Alfajiri were maintained also at Galdessa. Each tent had its own toilet and shower and the beds were very comfy and overall the best safari experience I have ever been on. The guides were so knowledgeable and I learnt so much from them and I always felt safe. Overall I could not recommend a place more, If I ever go back to Kenya I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else other than Alfajiri!
