We've just come back from our fourth stay in Kinondo and as always loved every minute. If, like us, you don't like regular hotels where you have to queue for your meals and put your towel on the sunbed before breakfast, this is the place for you. It is totally relaxing, the staff can't do enough for you in fact...

Kinondo Retreat could be perfect. It could be all you want from a holiday, it could be close to heaven, but it's sadly not there. The good points: truly wonderful staff, you'll be pushed to meet a better team of people who will do all they can to make your holiday memorable for all the right reasons. The bad points:...

Kinondo is a beautiful and quiet oasis, set just back from the beach, and a perfect place to get away from it all and relax, eat great food, drink cocktails and do as little or as much as you want - we spent 6 very happy days here. The all-inclusive option is good value for money and you will be...

If you want a real get away from it all, no TV, no radio, laid back place Kinondo is for you. What really makes this place is the staff - every one of them could not do enough, Charles, the senior waiter is the kindest man you are ever going to meet, Joshua the chef will cook everything to your...

My partner and I have just spent an extremely laid back couple of weeks here and have to say that the team that are in place to look after you are nothing short of brilliant. The suites are basic but not lacking, and are kept clean and tidy. Food was fresh and well presented. Service at all times was first...

What an experience the Kinondo Retreat is!! This is really a place to chill out & relax with great service but before the review a couple of points I have noticed on Trip Advisor about and around this place; the first thing is insects - Kenya is a hot & humid place and the Kinondo Retreat is not a hotel...

I lovely & tranquil resort. Very peaceful & quiet. Staff very attentive & accomodating. Beach bit further than expected, but at the quiet end so untouched & quiet (like scene out of Lost).

Was on one of the last planes out of London to Kenya because of all the trouble and the only couple left in this resort for the last 4 days which for us was bliss., but alas a nightmare for the staff, who were laid off one by one over the four days. The staff transport was cut so the...
