Came here after a terrible experience in another resort. This is my go to place when around the Kenya coast. The staff are friendly, from arrival you feel relaxed, offered a seat and a drink while they check you in. Food and cocktails were great, all in all they rescued my R&R weekend. Sad due to time constraints I never got my massage but definitely next time.

This time it was an old touch, established in 1972 is this hotel, butiful with an old feeling, old culture with its own design and spacious rooms, very accomodative ones. I loved everything, and food, and bar, and swimming, and the sea breeze and the beach and walks around this spectacular hotel friendly reception. My stay was wonderful and one to remember. Thanks to Magrate and his team, Richard or call him Peter at the bar. I will come again

They score ALL major points in anything and everything hospitality. We stayed there for a night and wanted to extend just because of the service. It was kind of the hotel to serve buffet options despite not being full capacity. There is a very good customer service culture in the establishment; from the gate to the rooms to the kitchen to other amenities. We had a sea food platter which was HEAVENLY! Straight from the sea 💯 Something worth mentioning there are security officers spread out in the hotel; safety and security is a priority. 6/5 is more like it.
