Just back from 2 weeks over New Year 2004. This is a really good all-inclusive hotel for Kenya. The hotel wasn't very full when we were there - this ensured you could get a sun-bed anytime of the day and it was all very relaxing.
The food choices are very good. The main buffet restaurant was the usual all-inclusive fare. The speciality nights were very good - especially the chinese and the italian ones. There are other a la carte restaurants which you can book on all-inc basis. You can then either go all-inc with the set menu or pay and choose from the a la carte. We did both - indian and chinese restaurants. There is also a very nice italian on the beach - we had both lunch and dinner at this one - looking out to sea was fantastic. We 'found' the snack bar for lunch after a few days. This served burgers, chips, toasted sandwiches and we liked having lunch here as you get served and it's outside and by the pool. Service is good. You just need to book near the Reception for the a la cartes. They didnt open everyone every night - but you could always get in when we were there.
Rooms are clean but a bit dated. The air con didn't work as good as we have known in other hotels - but there was a ceiling fan as well if you could stand the noise. Had a tv and a safe - ours overlooked the top pool.
There were 2 pools connected by a 'river'. We found the top one the quiet one for relaxing during the day - complete with swim-up pool bar. The bottom one was where for children and a bit more lively.
We flew to the Masai Mara for a safari - which was well worth it but more expensive.
We also used the Baracuda diving centre on the beach. All very organised and totally safe.
I used the Internet cafe a bit - which was ok but a bit slow as you would expect.
We didn't venture from the hotel other than the diving and the safari. We both had coughs and colds off and on - so we took it easy. There are a number of excursions you can go on if you want to see a bit more of the local attractions.
As we were there for New Year - they really put on a good evening with a live band and all of the tables set out in a large garden area we didn't know was there until the evening. The chefs brought out a really large cake and it was very entertaining. They cancelled the fireworks in support of the Tsunami victims and we had a minute's silence - which I thought was well done.
A great holiday.
