We spent valentines day here as a couple, it was the most memorable experience one would wish for. I particularly loved the food and the room that we were given at the sea front. The housekeepers are very helpful and know their job. The decor and view of the ocean was just an out of this world experience. I would... More

The infrastructure and rooms are OK. Internet is back in the stone age and food is just terrible. Wine list included only two white... More

Most rooms had issues with air conditioning and fans... More

Although we were not staying at this hotel located in Kilifi on the Kenyan coast, we visited their beach side restaurant on Christmas day. The staff were amazing and very welcoming. Due to the many visitors on this day food orders took longer than expected. However, it was worth waiting. The chicken pizzas and chicken and chips/fries were awesome. The... More
