This time my visit was for business. I was pleased to notice the improvements to the place. The new gym was well equipped, modern and importantly well ventilated. WIFI worked well and I got to send/receive all my emails on time. Did not get a chance to visit the beach but I will try come with my family for Xmas!

I was thoroughly impressed with the Galu inn in Diani Beach! The staff were friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. The breakfast was delicious, and the gorgeous beach was so close! Coming from Canada, I had a few concerns about taking a trip to Kenya. These concerns were instantly erased when I saw the friendly but vigilant security presence at this establishment....

I was impressed by this place, given its price. The rooms are spacious and modern for the $40/night I paid for. However, the manager was uncharacteristically unprofessional. I had booked 2 rooms and when my friends and I (3 people) went to check in, the guy asked us to pay for the total bill upfront. He happily agreed for us...
