I'm curious, whether this negativbeitrag from the criticism disappears, as many other. That would then be a further deficiency for this hotel and would demonstrate that the management with criticism could be avoided. In january we were in kaskazi. Full vorfreude the this time we would 4 weeks. Of course all-inclusive. But already on arrival the journey has been troubled. We booked a certain room. There were 3 mails from travel agency from skillfully arou …  read hotel review

Since i didn't want to have novels to write i try to make it short. Guests of the hotel are too 90-99% retirees. The no problem, we will all older, only, if one were not yet so old, then it becomes very boring in the hotel. The entertainment is also rather bad, but it all were very nice, young people, with whom i great understood have therefore i am sorry the to say, objectively, it is unfortunately sunday The food was good and freshly prepared, however no all too large selection. The staff is generally very nice and helpful, the ... ladies at the massage salon also, however much too expensive. The condition of the area limits, the age of the area is obvious. In the bathrooms worked also gladly times somewhat not, this also applies to the occasional air conditioning and other things. Tv and safe only for 2 Euro charge on the day. But the worst is now: the beach in front of the hotel is very bad, not suitable for swimming. At low tide you have about a kilometer was super calm, over the reef, always accompanied by inconceivable annoying people, called 'beach boys'. Probably include these characters to the nervigsten things, the a Kenya betided, (apart from robbery incidents and murder). The beach to the north and south of the hotel is very nice but also, where the eye looks: beachboys! I am not in the detail explain which of these types is so bad but rate them from, this experience for themselves. Conclusion: enter your money elsewhere, in fact, no matter where, but not there. Recommendation Karibik, south america, south-east asia, Seychelles, reunion, Maritius, Australia, Philippines, south seas, Maldives, Bali etc. pp. it is everywhere better than there. In this sense, i have warned. read hotel review

I look forward to next year in another hotel book, because in kaskazi i feel not as a welcome guest, but from the management tolerated.

A nice resort, but with a few drawbacks. Very good location, near a shopping center, restaurants, etc. The staff is extremely nice, friendly and welcoming without end. Nice pool area, nice entrance reception area. Internet quite good. Unfortunately, the cleanliness of the room to be, at least it was so during our stay. And also the food was unfortunately not the action. But you could find enough to eat. Balcony in the room always close, because otherwise visit of monkeys possible. The entertainment during the day and in the evening, i can't make statements, since not in use. Definitely this ... hotel is highly recommended. read hotel review

The hotel is quite old and run down. Also with the cleanliness is it not the best. Wi-fi is free of charge, but only in the immediate proximity of the reception and more bad than good.

    The rooms are big enough. The furniture was badly worn. We had a low cost room. They wanted to give us a room with a wall view assignment. On the other hand were we successfully. Then we got a room without ocean view, but at least with view of playground palm trees. Only worked here the shower not (only cold water). In both rooms was not tv, minibar or hair dryer available. Thanks to the tour guide Renate we got an upgrade to a superior room. Here there was even a water digester, foehn, mini bar and television. And the bathroom was a bit nicer.

  • Service
    4.0

    The service staff was mostly friendly and tried hard, but not particularly quickly use (up from drinks). Since the drinks partly only, if the plate was almost empty was eaten. The cleaning of the rooms was fine. Almost all of them spoke english, some even german relatively well.

  • Gastronomy
    3.0

    There is a 'dining room' with an outdoor terrace and a 'à-la-carte-restaurant'. The cleanliness in the dining room, left a lot to be desired. The upholstered chairs are really disgusting with numerous stains and a bit rickety. The meals are not very lovingly decorated nicely. The offer was not very varied. In the morning, white bread, mostly already somewhat too dry. Alternatively there is also cereals or beans. At noon and evening rice, potatoes, noodles with a sort of meat and always the same vegetables (time spinach, even carrots/zucchini-plate or beans). A local stew gave it also. The salad buffet was limited to tomato salad, coleslaw, carrot salad. Sometimes there were also red cabbage - paprikasalat. There was fresh fruit: watermelon, papaya, mandarins... And sometimes even bananas (more rarely). Dessert is always with ample sugar prepared. Jelly is so firm, wobbled nothing! Cream always tasted a bit salty. One becomes full, but make no demands.

    The location of the hotel is actually optimally. From the airport Mombasa from you can travel approximately 1.5 hours. Supermarket, cafe, shops etc. Are situated in the more immediate vicinity (within walking distance). The beach begins right in front of the hotel. Is however very stony. The beautiful beach is about 100 meters away with a stony 'plateau' walk. Water shoes so don't forget.

  • Sport & Leisure
    2.0

    If you needed activites, is in the right place. From morning 9:15 a. m. until 23 hours some is offered (stretching, water aerobics, beach hike water polo, shuffleboard, darts). The entertainers were friendly and tried hard. But why call the jonny walker, Bloody Mary and so on? The partially drunken guests these names better remember? And why is every day the same cd runtergedudelt, until the ears bleed? Us it was annoying. table tennis and billiards can only against fee be played.

Nice, although somewhat older hotel! (renovations will be carried out continuously)! Grounds are very well maintained and beautiful the flowers and other plants! Everything was clean and the staff was super friendly! This time we were 8 persons of which 6 already repeatedly in kaskazi vacation, 2 of which were absolutely Kenya-beginners and we had booked all inclusive! Wireless internet is free but only close to the reception available (which all in all no mistake, because it is holiday and one should possibly also times somewhat to relax and not the whole day the smartphone or laptop to sit)! For ... the most part the hotel was represented! German, as well as austrians! read hotel review

    Kenyans are in my opinion some of the friendliest people in Afrika! Therefore, my conclusion also with the staff! All very friendly, tried hard and was courteous! When we were at the hotel there were a few trainees as well as holidaymakers (trainees) they were super sweet and friendly! With english you always got along and some speak also quite well german! The rooms were always to our satisfaction cleaned! (so nothing negative) in one of our 4 rooms (as i said, we were 8) we had problems with the lights, it was as soon as possible (we are in Afrika this is because it is not so fast) repaired!

    The entertainers are very friendly and courteous but not pushy! Offered: stretching, water aerobics, Volleyball, darts, shuffleboard, Bocce, water polo, swahili-lessons and much more! You can also in the hotel by the pool glass bottom boat trips, or deep-sea fishing book! The pool is ok! There were many couches and also tons of capacity to curl up!

    Who here nothing to the meal finds is debt! There was a main restaurant with buffet (one interior and terrace) and then there was an à la carte restaurant! We were in two and it everything went very well! At the buffet there are also people who you pasta freshly prepare! There was fresh fish and also meat (beef du chicken) freshly grilled, as well as in the warmhaltedingern vegetables and other side dishes! Now and then there were also a few african food! A salad buffet is there and as if refeed cakes, and fresh fruit! For breakfast there was the english breakfast also jam and honey, cereal, pancakes, waffles and fresh eggs (something there to suit everybody)

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is from the airport in 1-1 a half hours! And the highlight is the Likoni ferry! The beach section at the hotel is not the nicest and you need in any case bath shoes, but in about 100 meters to the right, you can get the beautiful white sandy beach and soak up! Just outside of the hotel right in about 5 minutes walk is a large shopping center the 'Nakumatt' with café and a little further is the barclays center (with shops and bank)! Along the street you will find small huts where the locals things to the market! One goes at the hotlausgang to the left is you in about 15-20 minutes to the Diani Beach center where it also shopping possibilities! Shortly before a petrol station around the corner there is a snake park was and also a small supermarket and a currency exchange ( forex )! You need not walk rumgondeln one can also in the hotel to take a taxi, or outside on the road Tuk-tuk or a Matatu!

    The rooms are spacious and clean! In the bathroom there was enough storage space (great for women important)! The showers with salt süßwassergemisch is something to get used to, but you get a daily Krug with fresh fresh water! By the saline water are of course the taps somewhat corroded, but otherwise it was very clean! It is in the normal rooms 2 beds; a double and a single bed! Safe and fridge are included in the rooms (but we didn't use it)! Air conditioning and fan available and also functioned! En rooms there are balconies! There is no tv in the room, which was not bad as we anyway only there for sleeping were!
