Reviewed November 1, 2007

We stayed at Sands at Nomad for 5 wonderful days in September and I just had to write this review because I cannot believe any of the negative write-ups on this site. We booked Pinewood Village for the first 3 nights of our stay at Diani (having read all the great reviews) but could only rate it as OK so certainly don't think it deserves #1 rating. It's way down the end of a dirt road away from every other hotel and not one guest dared venture on to the beach while we were there. The private chef concept is grand but there isn't much atmosphere at a meal in your hotel bedroom. The move to Sands was the best decision of our holiday. It's small and luxurious, spotlessly clean, a very romantic hotel. They even have little four poster beds by the pool if you want to stay out of the sun. The staff were lovely and food amazing. We stayed half board and could choose from 2 different a la carte menus or go for the buffet which was way ahead of others I've seen. Lobster and steak were included on the a la carte menu at no extra cost. I really could not find a fault with the Sands and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
