My family and I have frequented this place very many times over the past few years. This time it was a big disappointment. Basic amenities like hot water and electricity were not there. The back up generator would be switched on for just few hours and would not support the ACs. As a result we spent the better part of... More

My family loved this place. It's a bit remote but that was not a problem for us. The staff members were great, they have great daily activities for the family that kept us busy throughout our stay. The rooms are huge, well-equipped and are kept clean. It's also ideal for self-catering guests.

We had a great family holiday here in 2011 and wanted to come back. The rooms were a little tired at the time and we used the ' Beach Boys' to arrange our trips for scuba diving and to the Masai Mara as they were cheaper. HOWEVER, we will not return until these issues are sorted out.

We have been several times before so knew what to expect. The resort had never been excellent but was acceptable. However this time it was so bad that we checked out after a few days and had to spend money on alternative accommodation. When we arrived the main pool was unclean with algae in it. We were told the filter... More

Stayed at Royal Reserve with a friend from December 19-23rd and was treated with contempt upon check in by Agnetta Maganga who refused to serve us. She was racist and extremely unhelpful. We went for breakfast a couple of times which for $10 was poor and took 90mins from order to prepare a couple of eggs, toast and coffee. The... More

We have stayed here twice under RCI and my family always looks forward to going back to the place. The swimming pool is so children friendly. Excellent facilities for expecially for a family with children. Great service from polite and friendly staff.

We stayed here for 7 days and really enjoyed this beachfront property. It is an older property but the service was great and it was safe. I like the fact that Simon arranged a perfect safari to Tsavo National Park for my family. The rooms were very spacious 2 bedroom with full kitchen.

The place had an islolated feel to it but I was told it's because it was slow season. There was no wifi (although site listed wifi avaiable) you have to go to the internet cafe to use the computer. Granted I didn't come all the way across the world to watch Television I expected more than three air channels. If... More

We stayed a week with several of us in the 2+ bedrooms. It's fully self-contained and we felt it was very affordable, being able to cook several of our own meals. With kayak rental available, 2 swimming pools, activities for the children, and beautiful surroundings we were very happy indeed. The beaches in the north coast aren't as pristine as... More

“You can ask for a beach view room, but you won't get it even with only 20% occupancy. They don't understand the concept of "good will" and building a clientele.”
