It was my second time and this time I chose it by purpose. It's a not too big hotel with a familiar athmosphere. Situated right on that beautiful white sandy beach. I chose a Bahari room right on the sea front overlooking the nice garden and Wifi on the room. With other room categoreis you get free Wifi at the...

We visited at the beginning of November for 15 nights. The Diani Sea Resort has certainly improved since our last visit in 2012!! We arrived at 10.30am after a very long and complicated journey from the UK, and were handed a very welcome drink, before a very swift check in. We arranged an airport transfer with the hotel and were...

I enjoyed my stay at the sea resort ,I'm not a fan of all inclusive but food was good . I asked for sea view did not get one none available whilst I was there . Shows were entertaining in the evening but I went out most nights to local bar and restaurant's. Massage great, Snorkeling tour very good ....

Our first time in an all-in resort... and we were pleasantly surprised. Even though it was fully booked over the new year, the layout doesn't make it feel too crowded. Food was surprisingly good for a buffet style and overall atmosphere was pleasant. The exception being the coffee bar where they were understaffed and hence struggling to provide an efficient...

Despite requesting a ground floor room closest to the beach in advance before arriving, our request was not met. Later in the afternoon, I spoke to another member of staff on the reception who offered to show us another room. All the rooms in this area were empty and I was very disappointed that we were not offered one of...

We visited Diani sea resort in Dec and were pleasantly surprised. They were able to accommodate the family in a room that had a smaller room inside where the kids slept. The rooms were very spacious and hence ver comfortable. They have a great pool and activities for kids which are fun. The service there is good. Everyone greets you...
