The hotel has average buffet layout and rooms however, the establishment need to consider upgrade of their rooms which are old poorly designed and unappealing particularly those on the Kole Kole side. The bathroom are old and toilets flushing system is weak. The entertainment team are lethargic especially in the morning and seem to more interested in entertaining themselves. The worst experience we had was on the beach volleyball. no attempt was made to engage the guests to learn and enjoy the games, the jambo team were placing their hearts out for themselves!!!. The staff too were mechanical , no charm , no smiles and unmotivated. The biggest tragedy was that we never saw the Hotel MANAGER throughout our five day stay!!! nbody cehcked what was going on! Nobody asked us for any feedback! They are very low on outdoor entrainment-- no water polo, no water volley yet they had water gymnastics only! so corona is no excuse. food was mediocre and repetitive , no creativity in cuisine...soggy bajihias and puris . We didn't even get avocados and sweet melon for dessert which are cheap fruits and available everywhere!!!!!!!!!!! the sofas in the common had foul smells and the covers needed washing . The owners need to go back to the board and address the issues because this place has potential .

Hotel's Favourite
We had booked to stay at this hotel in April this year but then had to cancel due to Covid-19 lockdowns in Kenya. When lockdowns were lifted we rebooked our holiday after getting detailed information on what the hotel was doing to make the hotel safe for the guests during the pandemic. It was well worth it. Being one of their first guests after reopening, we were lucky to have very few other guests so it was very easy to social distance from other guests. I believe this was intentional so that the hotel could learn from a few guests how to deal with their business during the pandemic. This also meant we had the beautiful Diani beach almost all to ourselves! The staff took wearing of masks, taking of temperature before entering the restaurant and hand washing or sanitizing very seriously which we appreciated. There was no slacking on these measures for the week we were there. Also for room cleaning we had the flexibility of choosing if and when we wanted it. There were no buffets as these had been replaced by table service. This worked well in the beginning but after a few days when a few more guests had checked in, we noticed the meals took a bit longer to arrive. This may be something they have to work on. But having said that, the food quality was very good! We did not utilize the kids club by choice though the animation team were ready for it if we had wanted to for our kids. We have been at this hotel before and it was well worth going back to it again. We really appreciated the friendliness and quality of service and the measures the hotel had taken to make our stay safe during the pandemic.

four nights for the price for three, so excellant value for money, stayed in the superior rooms so two double beds which was fine for 2 adults and 2 young children, air con was great and rooms were nice and cool, very clean. Fridge was a nice addition so cold water the entire time. Pool and faciliites were very clean and no rubbish was ever seen. Good choice of food but lacked chidlren friendly food for the evenings. Overall an enjoyable stay and would return.

One of the best resorts i have been to! Had the best of times here, amazing deals great food and awesome service! We had thh sea facing room and it did not disappoint. The view was fantastic. We spent 4 days at this place all 4 days we had something different to do, either its water earobics or guided walks on the beach (with security guards I felt like a celebrity!) or games in the resort premises, the sports team was spot on! Drinks were served anywhere in the resort be it at the pool, beach or the bar the service was prompt and efficient. We did not have to complain even once. On our last day we had the ebach dinner and what a treat that was! Special thanks goes to Baraka who was the staff on duty for our beach dinner, Defense and Gladys at the main restaurant who made us feel at home and all the staff in a whole were just amazing! We sure will be visiting again!
