Everything about this hotel is a little touch of paradise. Airconditioned rooms. A private beach next to the beach proper. Great buffet style food and help organising excursions. A must visit place in the sun.

Gorgeous beach, good food, fantastic pool, great service. What more could we ask for after having missed the Indian Ocean for so many years. There were quite a few visitors but it didn't seem crowded. The trip out to the sandbar was great fun and our daughter loved her first time snorkeling. Highly recommended.

I've been to this lodge with family and freinds and it was really a great experience. Very well located facing the wonderful Diani beach. The room was spacious and very clean as in general all the lodge. Breakfast and dinner buffet with quality and varied food. The lodge has a large number of activities that make the stay yet more...

The hotel is righ on the beach and has very nice lounge chairs overlooking the sea. Beach has fine and white sand and warm and incredible green water. Beware of sea urchins when the tide is leaking! Sometimes "beach boys" can be a bit annoying and inconvenient also. Rooms are nice and confortable. Staff is very very very friendly and...

We decided to book on this hotel after searching online through different accommodation options in Diani, and we were extremely satisfied. Great value for the money for the quite specious room, recently renovated with quality furniture and finishing, and the beach --- just one step out of the hotel to white sand, while many beach resorts in Diani are often...

So let me tell you the story of this hotel. So I booked a room and flight and all was set. I also arranged pick up from the airport. Then I arrived and there was no one to pick me up from the airport. I was really pissed at the beginning...they organised pickup about 30mins later. When I arrived the...

The hotel was a pretty sight. The Greek architecture added a flavor to the hotel - white structures, rounded edges, cottage rooms - a perfect place to relax! It's right on the beach, couldn't have asked for a better location. The lounge chairs placed at the edge of the hotel property, overlooking the sea shore make for a peaceful setting....

Not a 5* star resort by any means but for the price it is really nice. Clean and big bedrooms. The buffets for dinner and breakfast were ok, not amazing at all but not bad. The pool is very nice. The beach has just the most incredibly soft sand.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The hotel was lovely, and all the staff friendly and helpful. From the chilled facecloths and coffee on arrival, the welcome cocktails in the evening and the entertainment from Masai dancers to a range of board games to play. We felt welcome and cared for from the beginning to end.
