  • Jens

    Very friendly and attentive staff. Great food in both quality and variety. Super clean and spacious rooms. Nice pool area. Very helpful and friendly front desk, did a great job in arranging boat trips, rental cars, shuttle service etc. Beverages not overpriced.

    WiFi is constantly slow at 0.3 Mbit. No streaming or video calls possible whatsoever, which was annoying when u try to work. The extra charges for coffees like Cappucchino, Americano etc at breakfast are not adequate for a 5* place. Entertainment equipment was either unavailable (Darts) or very worn out (Pool table). Limited amount of drinking water supply in the rooms. Big bottles would be nice.

    The management is on the spot and respond to any issues double fast; rooms very well appointed; food really excellent, the tepinyaki and baharini restaurants are exceptional and a must though the spice route, swimming pools, many and all very good.

    Indian food was wanting; Animation was non existent - maybe due to covid?

  • Sally Alex

    Wonderful experience. Amazing architecture and concept. Lovely interior decor. Very spacious and good aeration in the superior rooms. The numerous swimming pools are awesome. Lovely view of the beach from the Spa area. The Teppanyaki dinner experience is awesome. Friendly staff, good service. COVID-19 measures in place, regular fumigation of areas, starting at check-in.

    Must say that everything was as expected! Great property, great staff and Joan the reception who assisted me was extremely helpful and friendly. Very good food in particular seafood restaurant Zan-zi-bar, superb in my opinion. Spacious room and bathroom was wow. Definitely recommend.

    I choose the half board option and the only thing i did not actually understand, drinks were not included, water, cappuccino etc! Never happened to me before

    The property is located at the best, very central point of Diani. The architecture is absolutely stunning. You definitely have to try their cocktails served at the lower swimming pool with the view of the beach.

    The only thing we did not like with my family is that we had to leave to go home after our holiday was over. We will be back for sure.
