My wife and...

The place has nice rooms and children friendly swimming pool but the service is very poor, the food is pathetic to describe and the beach front is full of sea weeds.Hope the management can also replace the analogue TVs in the rooms.

The hotel was pleasant with good food. Bathrooms are outdated with little water. There was a good host at palm restaurant Mr. Adi and Ms. Cecilia but the guy making breakfast omelettes was always in a foul mood. The beach has seaweed it would be better if cleaned. Overall good place to stay.

Dear Wanjugush, Thank you for review. We appreciate your comments & we have addressed the issues you have raised. On the issue of sea weeds this is natural - it comes & it goes (April - August). When you start clearing, this affects the marine life - microorganisms etc. To quote you, "The hotel was pleasant with good food...... "...

I was greatly disappointed by the food, very repetitive and not much variety. By the second day of my 5 day stay I could not stand the food a day longer. The poor quality rice was always undercooked and clumpy, the veggies were overcooked and had no flavour to mention a few. The chef lacks creativity and professional skills. They...

Friendly staff. Big and clean rooms, though shower and toilet started to show signs of ageing. Safe and secluded location. Superb beach next to the hotel. Location could be perfect if the hotel is moved 50 meters south. This can not be helped, though. :-) Pls indicate that shuttle service to Dieni offered by the hotel is a paid service....
