I traveled 10-12 December, 2016. Picking from mtravellerk below, the welcome and the whole experience was not good. I traveled with my friends and we were looking for somewhere to relax and unwind. The staff were rude (reception and dining). We had booked 2 months in advance, but our rooms were not ready, not forgetting, we were placed in different...

Very poor welcome on arrival. During meals and drinks waiters prioritize whites over local tourists. We filled in 2 forms indicating our anniversary and we were promised an "anniversary surprise" which never happened. Our queries on this were ignored. The staff offer very slow service,you have to wait ages for your room to get cleaned and to get your order....

We booked Amani as a last-minute deal for our Vacation since we wanted a place to unwind after a hectic month planning our church ceremony. The first impression was that of an underutilized property but we were pleasantly surprised to find a full restaurant! They have managed to accommodate so many people in the place without letting it feel crowded....

We arrived after a day full of DELAYS at the airport and we were just glad to have finally made it to the hotel! We had an at best mediocre reception, no cold cocktails (until requested) or smiling faces at hand which I was somewhat unaccustomed to. This was a general theme of our stay where their hands off approach...

The resort has good grounds but it's beach front is unusable because of coral, hence a big minors. With proper investment and attention, the management can easily turn this property into a paradise. They must start by getting real water, currently they use salt water everywhere, rooms, swimming pools which is terrible. Their menu is quite wanting, too basic. I...

The house keeping was wanting, towels were not replaced daily unless requested, same for toiletries...the food variety was limited and repetitive even tea time snacks. However the worst bit was on my first night at the bar, the waiter passed me over severally to serve foreigners before serving me.....thats a downer for local tourism...kindly improve.
