My husband and I have recently returned from a superb holiday in Kenya staying at The Diani Reef Beach Resort & Spa. It was all we had hoped for and more..The location was superb and the staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful. It was the perfect holiday. We also had a wonderful safari to the Maasai Mara.

We had a standard room on the top floor which was very clean and comfortable with a great view of the hotel grounds and ocean. The hotel is unique...

We stayed at the Diani Reef and Spa in late November/early December. The location is fantastic, beach (golden sand) on your door stop with free recliners with shade with unspoilt views of warm Indian Ocean. We had half-board which is plenty. The food is excellent, the staff very friendly, they just want you to eat everything. The Naan bread is...
