The staff was very cold poor service. Towels in the room not refreshed. No food variety. Staff don’t set the tables on time for meals. Even with early booking guest details are not in the system. Let down from my past experience

No need to go to Zanzibar, go to Diani beach! Pristine waters on a long stretch of white sandy beach, with some nice bars/resorts all along. Not too touristy but with the usual hassle of some sellers. They can be a bit bothersome but the...More

With its extensive serene white sand, cleanliness free from human pollution and little sea weed, even though this may be seasonal, coupled with excellent weather throughout the year, I enjoyed taking 6km walks daily from Baobab Beach resort to Forty Thieves bar and back. The...More

Diani Beach is the best in Kenya, with endless stretches of soft white sand, with no rocks or seaweed mounds on sight. There are a few beach boys but very sparcely scattered. Diani is the place to come for peace and quiet.
