“beautiful resort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013

I visited African Dream Cottages in January 2013. It is absolutely beautiful, your own piece of paradise. Just a short walk from Diani beach and the forty theives pub, its a fantastic place for a little get away.
The only complaint I can make is the food, the only thing I recommend eating from there is the breakfast, otherwise head down the road to a small food court which has a large selection of absolutely delicious food for a really good price.

this is a home away from home. The food was awesome with a variety of afro-asian delicasies. The locals were great and welcoming the staff had an excellent spirit and did everyt bit of service with a down to earth and humble spirit.
i loved the environment too it was relaxing and warm. the kind of service was one of its kind will definitely be back to this place if not for the fair weather then for the glass of home made Amarula

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!

4 of 5 bubbles 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!!!

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
