Very friendly staff, Diani Banda cottages is tucked amongst several other places and not easily found, making it a good oasis. About the best deal you can get for less than 100m from the beach in Diani. The rooms are equipped with basic kitchens, and it is a short walk, 5 minutes, to get to any restaurants. There is a...

We stayed in Diani Banda for 10 days and we were blessed by having the spacious banda on the topfloor. The inside was almost the same size as the veranda. Because of this we had a real good time to relax and chill. The beautifull white beach was only a few minutes walk.. maybe 2min. Because it was a self...

Stayed there 3 nights at december 2014. Really good staff, near the beach. Very poor room, just for sleeping. Feel like in the local village without any facilities, no wifi. Only for travellers who stays short time. We enjoed South coast of Mombasa;)

Paid KES3,000 per night for two adults in a room with a double bed, single bed, private bathroom, towels, mosquito net, fridge, gas cooker, plates, glasses and kitchen utensils. Close enough to the beach to have a sea breeze coming into the room at...

quiet place with friendly staff, would recommend for a family on a budget especiallly if you want to be away from the hustles and bustles of the city. walking distance from the white beaches of Diani, actually you can change from the room and walk to the beach. try it out.

Based on the reviews and the pictures on the website I am afraid we expected a bit more from Diani Banda, especially after excellent stays in Voi and Tiwi Beach the days before, at places which were just marginally more expensive than Diani Banda. Let's start with the positives though: The location near the beach is pretty good, it's just...

We stayed 2 nights at this place and it was very comfortable. Staff is nice and friendly, room was clean and quiet with small kitchen so it was possible to prepare breakfast or lunch on our own. Good location - near the beach ( not crowded ), near the supermarket.

I stayed at Diani Banda after arriving at Stilts and not liking the look of it. My sister and I went to a few places before settling on Diani Banda. Diani Banda is a guesthouse with a few (6?) outward facing little suites. Each unit has it's own outside door and a small food preparation area with a little fridge...

“The 2 rooms upstairs have a lot more (shared) space to sit outside than the 3 rooms downstairs, and since you are a bit higher up, you won't notice the messy garden so much. Prices appear to be the same, we were just unlucky they were already taken when we arrived.”
