I still love this place. Its location overlooking the creek gives me such peace. The space to do anything and everything is hard to find in coast hotels these days. You can jog within the hotel complex and have a good sweat, swim all day long the infinity pool, do water sports or take a boat ride to wherever -...

We had an amazing stay at the hotel. The location is just perfect: in the little apartments near to the pool and the beach we felt like in paradise. What I appreciated even more was the friendliness of the staff. They were all so friendly, courteous and caring throughout our whole stay. Their positive minds really reflected the mentality I...

Location: Perfect Food: Good Rooms: OK Service: Horrendous, to the point of ruining the trip. I cannot articulate how bad the service is here. Been in Kenya a number of months and fully aware that Kenyan timings are a little bit more laid back than western timings. But this place takes it to a new level. Waited over 80mins for...
