We have just returned from a week's half board holiday at IOBC, this was the first time we have stayed at this resort having been to many of the others on Diani Beach. We found IOBC to be excellent and definatly the best we have stayed at. Our room was just back from the sea view rooms but was still...

Before going to the IOBC I read all the reviews on trip adviser and really felt we were going to a first class hotel, sadly there are some fundamental issues that need to be resolved as these overshadow all of the good points. The activities team are superb and really interact with the guests, they do not pressure you into...

We booked the IOBC last year and have just stayed for 10 nights having been ona six day Safari. We were recommended this hotel by several friends who all spoke very highly about the hotel and reading reviews on trip advisor it appears that prior to Jacaranda becoming involved the hotel was perfect. We have just returned and I fear...

This was our second visit to the Indian Ocean Beach. We first stayed there in 1995 after taking a last minute deal off Teletext. On our first visit we were delighted with the accommodation, food, service in fact everything. This was a hotel that stood out from the rest - in fact, friends of ours who live there stated that...

Many other reviews on this site describe this hotel as very good. They are wrong. It is excellent…… However a few things may not be what some people expect or even want. They are hugely outweighed (in my view) by the friendly service, beautiful setting, and all round warmth of both the climate and the staff. First – the good...

I stayed at the IOB from November 27 to December 14 2006 The hotel's reputation preceded it and in my experience, lived up to expectations in all respects. The hotel I would class as a 4* by western standards. The whole complex has a lovely relaxed and rustic charm about it whilst at the same time providing good facilities and...
