Nairobi, Kenya
Reviewed 28 January 2017 via mobile

We recently stayed here, at an extortionate price for the level of facilities and service at this hotel. Check-in was inadequately performed, so that the half-board vs full-board inclusions/ exclusions were not explained at all. Our waitress on the first night explained that certain cocktails were included in the price we had already paid. Upon checkout we were presented with...

The bathroom has a Well functioning Jacuzzi. However the pool is not as big as one would expect though it is well maintained. Also the pool games like water...

This is an excellent 4* boutique hotel. The ratings give it a 5* but I don't think it is quite a 5*. However, that said I can say we had a great time at this hotel. It's a small boutique resort about 15minutes away from the airport. Let me start with the good points - of which there are a...

I recently spent 7 nights with my family at this boutique hotel spanning over the Christmas period. My family and l were impeccably hosted by Dixon and his team. We had the most wonderful experience indulging in the culinary experience that was laid for us daily. Its the sort of experience that requires one to dress up for dinner &...

An island of charming hospitality & relaxation. The staff are friendly, efficient & very professional. The spacious rooms, a gem, with air conditioning (properly functioning) & cable TV. Private balcony & garden is the cherry on top. Having booked on a half-board basis was a positive (coincidental) fluke, which I would recommend - meal options are varied & delicious. Dinner...

I went with my family in June. The weather was superb. The hotel wasnt too packed. The food is scrumptious, however maybe a few more interesting dishes for vegetarians (especially deserts) would be nice. The rooms are spacious. however, the rooms overlooking the main road dont have much privacy as staff and cars pass right outside the room. the gardens...
