The hotel is one of the best on the Kenyan Coast.Staff...

Having just returned from Diani Reef last week I can only say how impressed I was with the standard of staff and service provided.

We saw no signs of any of...

Stayed with my boyfriend for 2 weeks in late September 2007. The hotel is lovely. Food is fantastic fresh loads of selection and some cooked right in front of you. Rooms were lovely too. Entertainment is very low key but there were plenty of Brits around to socialise with. Most days were spent around the pool at the pool bar...
