Hotel's Favourite
I loved the time that I had spend in the Hotel. It was the best 10 days experience I have had in the south coast. The staff was my absolute favorite part because they were all extremely kind, open hearted, patient and resourceful and they provided the best hospitality. The food was beyond amazing as well as the safety measures taken. One other favorite part of my trip there was the Entertainment which was provided by the Zuri team. this team was very special and remarkable in terms of performance, friendliness and having fun. The team really showed my Family and I a really good time and I appreciate their hard work and resentment. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in the South coast, Diani and I would visit there again.

One of the best times to visit Diani is August and best place to stay is Diani Reef. We stayed for 5 nights and had an excellent stay with clean beaches ( thanks to the guys who cleans everyday for its guests ). Not to forget the staff members were very friendly and always ready to help: the reception staff, the security guards ( Harriet, McMilan and others), the chefs at the both the restaurants ( Kuldeep and the chef at the beach restaurant) , staff members at the Coco Club ( Yvonne and her dance group). We really enjoyed meeting all, who also made our stay so memorable. In short great breakfast, relaxing afternoons at the seaside, fun activities in the evening ( volley ball, aerobics in pool) and very impressive dance show at night. We highly recommend this place.

First time at Diani Reef- the place has a calm and easy-going atmosphere and for a tech inclined person like me, absolutely great Internet. Grateful for Mariam, Hamadi, Sarah and Nicholas at the pool bar, who went out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable and a great thank you to the reservations colleagues who answered my many questions when I was booking with the hotel. Absolutely recommend the facility!

First of all,Diani Reef is beautiful. A little refurbishing here and there would be great but that doesn't change the fact that the place is amazing and full of lovely staff all round. I remember the small Ethiopian looking lady at the reception Lilian who was so there and assistive,she truly made our stay memorable. We will plan another trip soon. Hopefully very soon.

We had planned to stay at Diani Reef for 3 nights, however because of the lovely atmosphere and warm and friendly staff, we extended it by 2 more nights. The facility is so huge that you would surely find something to do, apart from enjoying the lovely Diani beach. I highly recommend staying here to enjoy the beach as the facilities are amazing especially the staff takes utmost care of you and your belongings, so that you can enjoy a carefree time in the ocean. The maasai guards took good care of our well being and are so warm to speak to. I give full praise to the entertainment team in Diani Reef, which puts up amazing shows every night with so much energy and passion. Yvonne and Elizabeth from this team were very helpful, friendly, fun to be around and took additional efforts to keep guests more involved and entertained! Had fun playing beach volleyball with this team and they also took time to provide company in playing otjher sports like snooker or Table tennis incase you did not have a partner to play with. The Chefs were also amazing, regularly cooking tasty Indian dishes, while Kuldeep made sure that all our requests were well delivered. Overall, it was the staff, from the reception to the cleaners, the maasai guards, the waiters, entertainment team, chefs, all of them who were super friendly and warm to talk to that made our stay one of the most memorable ones ever.
