We had a wonderful time at this hotel last year so I booked it again. The hotel is quiet and a little out of the way. There are activities, but not so many that you are overwhelmed. The food is great and they will go out of their way to make something for you. I am a veggie and there was a new chef this year. Every night the veggie option was some sort of curry, so I availed myself of the pasta station (very nice). I did mention to the restaurant manager that it would be nice to have pizza or canneloni or lasagna or something not curry and the very next night there was lasagna. We also got pizza and canneloni.
We have an Ocean front room and I thoroughly recommend it. It is a bit maldivian, but not such a long flight and you aren't stuck on an island. If you are not a party animal and can overlook a few small niggles (we didnt have any this time) then this is the hotel for you. If you like to be close to the action with plenty of organised things for kids and adults then I would suggest the Southern Palms (massive pool) or the Diani Sea Resort.(value for money and right next to the supermarkets) South Mombasa has much nicer beaches than the north although the transfer is a little longer.
