We have just returned from two weeks at the Diani sea resort and can thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking of visiting this area. Communal areas, both indoors and outdoors are attractive and tastefully furnished. The landscaped gardens leading down to the pool are amazing. Rooms are spacious, basic but functional and kept spotlessly clean. Food choices...

We transferred to the Diani Sea Resort from the Diani Sea Lodge, what a difference. On arrival at the lodge we where shown to a "superior room" we are not that fussy but this was definitely not superior. We met our Cosmos rep Annie who quickly arranged for us to transfer to the Resort, we were allowed to view the...

We had a lovely 8 days at the diani sea resort-the waiters and staff are very friendly,although service is slow it is always done with a smile and they are only too happy to help. The only downside to this holiday was that you could NOT go on the beach without being harassed by the beach boys trying to sell...

We booked our holiday to Diani Sea Resort four weeks before we left as there were a few options to go in the world and I can truly say we werent disappointed. From start to finish there was nothing that we can say was bad with the holiday. The flight was on time and there was plenty of leg room...

We have just returned from a glorious week at the Diani Sea Resort. The hotel was by no means luxurious, but very attractive in an almost old colonial way. This is not a hotel for people who have mobility issues, as there are terraces and steps from the back of the hotel down through the very pretty gardens to the...

The Diani Sea Resort is set in a lovely location, right on the Indian Ocean, beautiful white sandy beach, nice sea breeze and set in lovely grounds. The swimming pool was a good size and never crowded - always chance to have a good swim, if you wanted to. During our second week sun beds became more difficult to get...

CHECK IN Typical tourist hotel check in. Quite quick with no fuss and with a welcoming drink. Front desk staff are very good. There is a money exchange at the hotel but you will get a better rate at the bank just over the road. You need to go to Barclays bank 2 kms away if you need to use...

I have to admit we were mildly disappointed given that we thought we had paid a decent price. We expected a little more for the price. The place is a little run down but perfectly sufficient if you don't have too many airs and graces We had to change our holiday from Egypt last minute given the civil unrest that...
