Stayed here this month for four nights and I enjoyed every bit of it. Everyone from the staff members to the owners were great people. Very helpful. The aparments are good, spacious and very clean. The pool is big and doesn't get crowded. Their breakfast was also good, though it could be better. To cap it all, the price is...

Getting to Morning star from the airport is quite a journey (about 2 hours). However, the interesting bit is the ride on the vehicular ferry across the river (we drove to the vehicular ferry and it took us across). Morning Star Diani is close to a supermart (Nakumat) where we got most of our household needs, we didn't have to...

This is not the perfect resort, but it is clean and not too expensive. Set on the wrong side of the road ( you have to cross the road to reach the beach). About a ten minute walk from the city centre. Safe behind a wall and double gates. Pool with fresh water. A typical business hotel which is also...

Since my arrival I have noticed that they have no gym even though they advertise like they do. And although I understand this resort is in development, I would think the management would...
