The hotel was quite clean. The size of the area and also the furnishings matches the catalog description. The guest structure ago, during the time of the stay. Initially the hotel was only relatively low capacity with a high proportion of british. In the following week the hotel was relatively good mood and the guest structure was a international mix with a surplus to eastern european guests. …  read hotel review

The hotel complex is right by the sea located. The hotel over many years from a German married couple. The number of rooms is approximately 175 rooms, the in a very shabby condition. A complete overhaul is urgently advisable. The award of 4 stars is only conditionally justified. Remarkable is the common fäkaliengestang in the entrance area and at the northern and southern property border. …  read hotel review

March december and was there, and i can say it was very good. The room, dining area, beach were very clean. I have never used pool, since i'm due to the warm sea water after Kenya drive and need no pool. Enough pool chairs were available under the palm trees or in 1st series is there. The food, especially the fish, soups, salads and the ample fruit (pastries i cannot judge, as never eaten) tasted excellent. One gets the beverages also served quickly The staff is very accomodating and friendly. In the evening one can in the hall from 18. ...30 free surfing.

The hotel has very diminished. I have stayed many times, but it is always an unreasonable. Apart from the high season (christmas and new year's eve) the food is almost inedible. A saving grace is the staff, always friendly, polite and nice without being intrusive. A curious thing is the german owner of the meals also in the restaurant is. Without a single word with his guests to change, not even to greet, more than strange. read hotel review

    The breakfast was a bit lean, lunch, coffee & cake and dinner was sufficient and tasted very good. At the pool bar one could order snacks (pizza, pasta, sandwich) Everywhere very clean and well maintained. You can give tips, - must it however not. Every day the pool boy to something to give i think over the top... At the reception a box stands for all staff (which are available, but never looked).

    In front of the hotel there are 'on-site' souvenir shops and about 300m further a mini-shopping center with supermarket, souvenir shops, bank (think only to exchange), the new rooms of d. m. tours and a pharmacy. A short distance with the taxi and one could reach the barclays bank and a somewhat larger supermarket. Furthermore, there are 2 good restaurant, also with taxi.

  • Sport & Leisure

    Entertainment superb and not pushy. Different deals from water polo, beach volleyball, darts and many other more evening entertainment was also ok. Performances, games with guests, etc. Excursions could be at Steffen in the hotel, for example, deep sea fishing, dhaufahrt, glass-bottom boat... By trees and palms there were at the pool and beach sufficient shade, umbrellas are not necessary, but are a few available. Beach chairs and cushions in good condition. The pool area and the pool is very large and the beach is also enough. So not sardines risk. In the evening starting from about 17 o'clock monkeys into the hotel, feed, they are not, but some doofis make. Then comes the security and shoots a zwille from. I thought it was very unfortunate :-(

    The rooms are large. Claustrophobia definitely not. All rooms are equipped with a mosquito net over the bed, tv and safe (for a fee and security deposit at the end again) equipped, as well as a balcony. All rooms face the hotel inside. It is clear, that not all of the rooms, close to the sea,. Also not, if the hotel u-shape set up. The back rooms are close to the sea, because the balcony from the sea, the middle room to the pool and the front room to the terrace/restaurant.

    Very large room, without any mote or other schnmutz. Two super nice, large four-poster beds (no joke), every day be changed. Safe only for a fee - it is not anymore (1 week about 15 Euro ). Balcony was ocean ausgewießen, which meant: the hotel is at the sea! This is fraud, as it actually (except two suites) is no sea view.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    Very reundliche surroundings in the dining area. Alternating you get an à la carte menu with buffet. Selection: very good, taste: a bit underspiced. You should be on time, as empty plates not more refilled. Every day there was live cooking. As all-inclusive should not be paid. You must also no all-inclusive bracelet, but instead for every drinks, the room number and sign up. The was very annoying!

    Super large, quiet pool. There are no umbrellas needed, because of the many trees. It is beautiful. The entertainers are present, but in no white pushy. From and on, jumped a few monkeys through the area - is funny. The pool and the whole area was very clean. A fitness room is available, but very small. But also by nobody used, probably due to the temperatures.

    Hotel is directly on the beach, very clean, the palm trees offered much shade and the beachboys are absolutely unproblematic. The way from the airport to the hotel is very exhausting, as you sometimes up to 2.5 hours (!) At the ferry in Mombasa have to wait. A few bars are in the proximity, a supermarket about 500 meter

We appreciate, that the hotel is around 100 rooms. It is well maintained with a beautiful, large garden in the centre, in which four different affenarten crowding. The beach upstream is a palm grove in which one its couch really can relax. The area was certainly already at the 20 years old, but very well maintained and you didn't have the feeling, that possibly somewhat neglected or not been set. The verpflegungsart is all-inclusive. Wlan gives it every evening from 18:00 until 10:00 p. m. in the lobby, which however due to the evening only reason, rather the ... port with a k-modem came right.

    The entertainment was friendly and unobtrusive. Daytime activities such as beach volleyball and waterpolo, were also small trips in the sister hotel, located in a nearby home, and the local school organized. The orphanage we could unfortunately not, since we for this day our safari booked. But the trip to the school which we did and you definitely need to candy without end carry forward (you can in the supermarket next door buy) and if you want to have space in his bags can pens etc. - everything is thankfully and needed! Every evening there was a evening program, that at 9 hours started, since we were however mostly in the springs and, therefore not much to say. Additional services in the hotel were diving courses, lanzerote and glass boat rides and massages - but we didn't use it. The sun loungers at the pool and beach were in good condition. The pool was certainly already a bit older, but very well maintained and really larger than we thought.

    The service in the hotel was really excellent. All the staff, were very without exception friendly from the gardeners, the housekeeper, waiters and entertainers. The restaurant service was always prompt and friendly service -, whether you tip or not. The room would be cleaned daily and on demand we have - as already mentioned - a softer mattress get. The entertainment in the hotel was, wasn't pushy, but always there when you needed her and especially my better half the daily waterpolo very much. Most of the staff spoke german, but really everyone speaks english. Kenyans are really very friendly people and not fake.

    Breakfast and dinner in the large restaurant in the main building and lunch and coffee and cake at the pool. We were really positively surprised by the food, that really was very good. The only thing we didn't like were the desserts, as does the german taste evident from the african. Also we would have liked a bit more typical local specialties. All in all the restaurants were at the pool and in the main very nice, neat and tidy. The restaurant in the main building has a beautiful view into the garden. Particularly to emphasize is here the quality of the cocktails, they were for an all inclusive hotel very good.

    4.0

    We were in a standdart -double room, which however was recently renovated and were positively surprised. The room and bathroom were clean and neat. We would have for 15,00 Euro also during the day, upgraded, but the higher category had only a slightly different design and a minibar, which for us not crucial was a higher category to take advantage of it. Mosquito net and air conditioning were available and functional. The mattresses were for our taste much too hard, but after we have mentioned the mattresses impeccably against softer changed. The balcony surveyed the beautiful garden and came a monkey visit, so had to the balcony door always be kept closed. Generally, i have to point out, however, that one a 4,5 star hotel in Afrika not a 4.5 star hotel in Afrika comparable and should.

    After two hour drive from the airport the hotel you reach. It is right on the Diani Beach, what can only be described as gorgeous as described. Surrounded by palmenheinen and sand as fine as sugar, you can really take a break from everyday life. The beach upstream is also a reef which definitely with a typical dugout boat should visit - at the beach we Mohammed (nickname rama) and his colleague suleyman - and it was a fantastic experience. Also as a starting point for safaris the location is suitable, since we only 10 days were there we only a eintagessafari to tsavo-east booked (at Francis on the beach it is a bit cheaper than at the tour operator) and loved it - a great tour, the you can only recommend!
