    A great resort!
    A great venue with amazing staff.

    Very Good 8.0
    Super hotel but needs some improvements
    Amazingly beautiful hotel. The best staff I've ever come across... Especially the lovely waitress Lily and also Bonfice, Eric, Francesco, Elfas the Porter and Chacha the security guard that loaned us his motorbike. Some tips for the hotel to improve: 1. Provide a washing machine for guests to do their own washing at a reasonable cost. (not all guests are super rich and are able to pay the expensive "per item cost". 2. Should provide an iron and ironing board. 3. Beach is very stoney to enter the sea... It wouldn't cost much to build a nice boardwalk or jetty out to a safer swimming location.

    A Canadian Gal in Diani.
    This hotel was a fantastic stay. The time we arrived we were treated very well. It was a very relaxing and enchanting days away in the sun and fun. I will offer a minor room for improvement. 1. The staff must orientate their guests to the AC functions, TV and meal times. It was a bit frustrating trying to work the AC and most times it cut off prematurely during the night or we had to call someone to help turn it on during the evening hours.
