The complex is completely secure and once you're inside, it is also an oasis. A beautiful swimming pool, one bedroom apartments, an open air restaurant-bar, and most importantly- fantastic and welcoming staff. No complaints at all.

We spent a weekend at Morning Star in October and we did not regret our decision. It was rated highly on trip advisor and decided to give it a try. Decent apartments, wonderful service and pocket friendly rates. I give this resort 2 thumbs up!

The pool is big and doesn't get crowded. Their breakfast was also good, though it could be better. To cap it all, the price is...

Getting to Morning star from the airport is quite a journey (about 2 hours). However, the interesting bit is the ride on the vehicular ferry across the river (we drove to the vehicular ferry and it took us across). Morning Star Diani is close to a supermart (Nakumat) where we got most of our household needs, we didn't have to...

This is not the perfect resort, but it is clean and not too expensive. Set on the wrong side of the road ( you have to cross the road to reach the beach). About a ten minute walk from the city centre. Safe behind a wall and double gates. Pool with fresh water. A typical business hotel which is also...
