Both the freshwater and salt water pools are ernomous and a great joy to swim in. Their beach site is stunning and very well serviced. I had booked a romantic beach dinner for my...

My three children travelled from U K to a family reunion and was worth spending our holidays and New year at this very pleasant resort which has the best food lay out throughout the day and the best beach on the Southern coast of Mombasa. Will always treasure the memories.

Inside the room is old very aged and could do with a much needed upgradation. Apart from this the general Hotel service, staff and ambience were average. The...

I spent two nights at the resort recently. I had the most pleasant time whilst there. The pools, beach, entertainment in the evening, poolside bar, restaurants with umpteen choice of different dishes that spoilt me. I will certainly come back again next year for a longer period!

We were on the all inclusive stay, the beach and pools were well maintained. Food was okay and needs to be improved. Having stayed here for two nights we did not see...

Lovely resort with great service and friendly staff. Great food with adequate variety. Nice and clean beach with lots of outdoors activities. Spacious pools with bars, sun, warm and even monkeys welcoming you on your way to room. Room was clean and big enough with quite old fashioned wooden furniture but it made it more special.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This dramatic hotel with its fantastic pools and beautiful beach is the perfect spot to relax after a safari… or simply visit to relax! The warm and very African feel of the hotel with comfortable rooms, well appointed bathrooms and selection of restaurants offers guests plenty of places to lounge in the sun and almost as many shady spots to enjoy a bit of a breeze and a good book. All rooms have quiet, split unit air conditioners, televisions, mini fridges and coffee and tea making facilities. There is a safe (chargeable) in each room and a business center located in the main building with internet or wifi access in public areas. The drama of the huge, traditional makuti (thatched) roof in the main restaurant offers the Chef a terrific showcase for a varied selection of local and international dishes on the buffet or you could indulge at one of the a la carte restaurants (chargeable) for a special occasion or just a quiet evening for two. ... more   less
