“Unbeatable for Location and Price”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

A very enjoyable stay at the Diani Beachalets. We couldn't believe our luck when we got a Cottage only a few metres away from the Indian Ocean! Very happy to have stayed here and super friendly staff, thank you. The price is without doubt a bargain, the cottages have everything you need for your stay. We loved the beautiful gardens with colobus monkeys overlooking the white sandy beach. We can't wait to visit you again

Stayed August 2013, travelled with family

Fantastic location, right on the beach! Could not ask for a better place to stay considering the price. Arrived to friendly staff at checkin and assisted whenever we needed anything. Best place to sleep was cottage 7 or in the little house at the rear of the property, it has been recently refurbished. Favourite employee had to be the Aussie Electrician, always helping everyone and could speak swahili.
Will be going back again and again!! Its a spot the whole family will love!!

We still talk about it! Great value for a private chalet/apartment with two double bedrooms, private kitchen, living room and toilet...only for 5000 per person (for three people a day)!
Great location, Great Security and really clean rooms
Private chalets with access to the beach.
Local fisherman selling the fresh catch of the day...what else you need?
Close to main amenities

Wasn't expecting much upon arrival and couldn't see much due to how dark it was. We got checked in and went to sleep, woke up the next morning to see a beautiful sun rise over the ocean, beautiful gardens and happy people. It was so peaceful and I honestly couldn't have asked for a better holiday and I wish I stayed for longer. The staff were lovely and very helpful, I'll be back in years to come, thank you so much Beachalets for such an amazing experience.

Room Tip: By swimming pool I meant the ocean, biggest swimming pool you can get. I have to say all the cottage...

A fantastic spot for the budget traveller and a place you get exposure to the real Kenya. Something that's hard to do in a 5 star all inclusive resort. It's in the best part of the beach, just beautiful. I'll be back again and again!

We stayed for 8 days in January and after be a bit apprehensive because of the low price this was soon forgotten as we where amazed at the location. The cottage we stayed in was simple but clean and had everything you need.
We used one of the cooks recommended by the owner and he was a very good cook, the local fish is really good.
Can't wait to return soon.

We have been spending every Christmas and New Year at Diani Beachalets, with our children and friends, for over 20 years. We are also trying to return, just my wife and myself or again with friends, at least once or twice a year. By far the nicest option after having tried other places for some 10 earlier years. Right on the beach, walking distance to several eating-out options, supermarket and fresh fruit and vegetable kiosks, but still quiet and private. Very friendly service, good advice for tours, attractions and practical matters from the staff

Room Tip: All beach-side chalets are very fine !
