Diani Reef was the destination for our honeymoon and it was perfect in everyway. From arrival (with cold flannels and champagne) to our departure, the service was second to none. Everyone was happy, friendly and eager to help us in whatever way possible. Our ocean facing room was lovely, and was serviced daily. The pools were both fantastic, we loved...

We have just returned last night from Diani reef beach resort and spa and have to truly say what an excellent hotel it is!

It is unfortunate that we did not see this resort at its best, it is true to say that it is looking a little tired in places and in need of an overhaul which is not surprising really as we were told it is the oldest hotel here. During our stay in March the Hotel was only about a third...

My husband and I have recently returned from a superb holiday in Kenya staying at The Diani Reef Beach Resort & Spa. It was all we had hoped for and more..The location was superb and the staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful. It was the perfect holiday. We also had a wonderful safari to the Maasai Mara.

Diani Reef excels itself in every way. The service was first class, the staff are extremely attentive. The location is superb. In my opinion the hotel deserves its 5 star status. We had a standard room on the top floor which was very clean and comfortable with a great view of the hotel grounds and ocean. The hotel is unique...

Arrived by taxi and greeted by staff with cold face towels, and cold drinks. You hand over your passport while for reception while you relax on a white leather sofa. Reception fill in your required forms and ask for your signature. It was a dream welcome. Hotel was spotless and clean with great food and super choices every day. The...

Horrible managed Hotel, no worth for my money. Hotel looks tired,needs lot of refurbishment. Dull, unfreindly staff, seems, not managed by professional team, needs change in top position. Lead by an Asian GM, who dont know ABC of Hotel. He needs to be send back to school to sound his fundaments. Staff seems to be unhappy, no smile on the...

Spent two weeks at the Reef &Spa in february the hotel was running around half full,we had a wonderful time so relaxing and peaceful.

“Rooms closer to the pool and ocean.”
  • Two minitue walk to the beach, and i could literally dive in the pool from my room.
  • Where all the magic happens.
  • I think i would call it the dinning area and chill zone area
