We eventually managed to check-in with a room of our choice with a higher rate than expected. Staff are generally friendly, but was...

Hotels have closed forever and much has changed as a...

Awesome food. Friendly staff. Awesome pools. Lush gardens. The bathrooms were spacious and impeccably clean. White sand! Close to the reef. Could more with the entertainment ~ but hey...you can't get everything. Quite affordable! I would definitely go back.

I was initially nervous about vacationing in Kenya for a friends wedding (a 4 day affair) as I had never known anyone who has gone there.

Very good place, open sea view, nice swimming pools, nice food, nice lawns, nice range of cultural activities with water play, etc but be careful from monkeys :) Easily accessible to coral island which is one of the best things to discover to see the marine fishes :)
