Great family stay. Clean rooms, great pool, wonderful restaurants and speedy customer service. They had a separate dinner for the kids with kids menu which is a great idea.Variety of foods during meals was wanting though

Dear Guest, From the onset, please accept our apology for this rather very unusual experience at Amani.

We stayed with the family on an all-inclusive basis. The food was good and the coffee was great. They also have a great swimming pool (probably the best in Tiwi-Diani), which is big enough so that one does not feel "crowded." The gym is also a great plus, after all the resting and eating that takes place. They have really...

We stayed at Amani as part of a wedding group on an all inclusive basis. The food and service was average but good value for the cost. The hotel was not very busy and hence even the staffing levels were at best only just adequate. We stayed in the suite, which was quite spacious, kids enjoyed the cascading pool which...

Family friendly hotel with baby sitters who love kids. if you're looking a quiet and secluded location then this hotel fits the bill. Most of the staff need to be trained on customer service, overhead one of the senior waiters verbally abusing i assume a younger waiter which was so unprofessional. Ironically the best customer service came from a chef...

One of the best hotels in Kenya or anywhere on sea-side. Highly recommend for anyone coming to Kenya for a relaxing holiday or business trip. Amani Tiwi has access to greatest private beach area I have come across plus is one of the most stylish hotel in Mombasa.
