This hotel is really a gem. It is not often I find a hotel where I want to go back. But the quality, level of personal attention with the staff and general cleanliness is really special. Highly recommended. PS. great wifi to boot :-)

Back at Lantana for yet another stay. As always everything was wonderful. The staff are excellent. Accommodating, helpful and friendly. The apartments are spotlessly clean and serviced daily. The food in the restaurant is fresh and tasty. Jack and his team do a good job. Patience and her team look after you well and are up for a chat and...

We had a great time here, really nice set up. The self catering villas are spacious and very clean, the pools are great, lovely restaurant, and brilliant beachfront. Also really friendly staff. If had one tiny recommendation it would be adding room service - I don't think guests would mind a paying a tray charge. Also a tip - for...

Stayed for 8 days on family vacation and we truly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were wonderful and very helpful throughout our stay. We had a lovely ocean view apartment, just ideal for us to play indoor games and quiet reading. We however found the beds to springy for comfort. The furnishing in the apartments is good but the floor rugs...

My husband's friend invited us for his wedding in Diana, Mombasa and we had a complimentary accommodation. So off we went, not knowing what to expect. I have only seen such views on TV, but when we entered our room that was on the 2nd floor, we were mesmerized at how picture perfect it was. The ocean view was unreal...

Having lived and worked in Kenya for 20 years, I find Galu Beach to be the best beach in Kenya, especially for small children as the beach is flat, clean and sandy. No rough surf and very little coral near the shore. It's close enough to small Diani Town for shopping and restaurants, but maintains a very rustic "Robinson Crusoe"...
