“2nd time here....even better than before!”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

I returned to African Dream Cottages in April 2012 after a lovely stay there at Christmas 2011. The food was even better than last time, staff very friendly and helpful and security excellent! The cottage was small but perfectly formed and the pool well maintained and a good size. I will return here whenever I visit Diani again, cant recommend it enough!

Reviewed 31 December 2011

I have just returned from a week at African dream cottages and will be returning on my next visit! the compound itself is in a great location for diani shopping, the beach and nightlife (opposite forty thieves!). The beach is about 7 minutes walk pole pole, the shops (supermarket for water etc...) is 5!

The cottages are not the most attractive but the whole place looks great with the pool and bar/restaurant area being beautiful! It is quiet without being dull and you feel comfortable with the staff and security, both of whom are great!

I ate at the restaurant afew times for dinner and the food was good and reasonably priced, breakfast is included and was nice....a few more choices would be better!

The rooms are functional but the bed makes it seem more luxurious which is good, bathrooms, towels etc...all clean and nice! The fan is necessary for Mombasa and was not intrusive or loud!

Overall a really nice place to stay....good value especially if it wasn't peak season!! The owner knows alot of useful people for taxis, places to eat etc...which was really good, only downside for me was no wifi!!!

Reviewed 13 December 2011

There is 14 cottages
12 single floor, 2 double floors ( i recomend them)
Big swimingpool in the center
The beach is at 150 meters
It is new (2010)
Good security with guard 24/7 and walls all around the place

Very good service, but the restaurant seem not working yet , due to not enough customers at this time
