The hotel was lovely and unbelievably friendly. The room me and friends had was a nice room with four poster bed and a very large bathroom with all the necessary mod cons. The food was varied and delicious and catered for all tastes. The evening entertainment was super, ranging from African dancers, to acrobats to Masai Warriors chanting and dancing.Indeed,...

Everytime I asked for bear it took them 10-15mins to serve. I think it's better to go in cash hotel rather than all inclusive which this...

Dear Harshvardhan, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We apologize that our bar closes at midnight. We therefore provide mineral water in the rooms. We will look into the issue of the service taking long at the bar. We do hope you will give us another chance. Kind regards, The DSL Team

The hotel was very clean and the staff couldn't be more helpful. There was no tele or phone in the room so any queries meant a trip to reception. There is no iron available so make sure you iron everything before you arrive, although you can pay for an ironing service. The food was good. I was in Kenya for...

We spent Christmas and enjoyed the spacious room facing the sea, high quality of food and friendly staff. The sunbeds facing the sea are great but remember to get up early and put your towel on your favorite before the other tourists!?!
