We were to stay at this hotel for only two nights and move to another hotel. When our time was up and we changed hotels, our next hotel was not up to the standards we were used to at Swahili Beach. We were spoiled rotten while at Swahili Beach. We cancelled our reservations and called Swahili Beach to kindly pick us up and hopefully book us back in (AGAIN) for another 2 nights. Yes! If that doesn't speak volumes, I do not know what does. Expect good quality... rooms, food, service... Best hotel in Diani.
We traveled to Swahili Beach in February, the weather was just right and excellent for a beach destination. One thing that stood out for us was the swimming pool. Huge! And stretches all the way to the bottom. You are basically spoiled for choice when it comes to swimming. You definitely do not have to worry about bumping into each other when you are swimming. The time of the year we went was quiet, and if you want to enjoy some peace and quiet, consider February.
The service was great, as well as the reservations and checking in which was quick. The room we stayed in was amazing and spacious enough in size. If you are looking for a spacious, consider the luxury rooms, they are slightly more costly, but worth it. I did not get to view any other rooms, therefore I cannot comment on them.
There is a variety of restaurants, although we only ate from the one closest to the beach (can't remember the name) and the main restaurant. The breakfast was the best, especially their pancakes. Please try them.
If you are considering Diani, try Swahili Beach.
