Having said that the grounds were very well kept and we would have been happy to stay in any of the cottages available. The staff were brilliant and very attentive on the...

We went to Kenya last month staying at the Indian Ocean Beach Club. We adored the hotel which is very sympathetically designed and had the major bonus of offering individual luxury huts rather than rooms in a big block. Other guests were great, food was lovely, and the staff were a delight. Dont forget to visit Ali and the boys...

We loved the hotel, location and the people!! We were there for 2 weeks but had a 3 day safari to the Masai Mara in the middle, which was just wonderful, this was booked via a local company, Doc at Kenyan Adventures.

Stayed at this hotel for 11 nights following safari. Cannot fault the staff or the food. Accommodation very good with brilliant views of the ocean. Bathrooms need an upgrade but were we told this was happening soon. Tremendous beach and security fantastic. Don;t leave your room door open or you could be visited by monkeys.
