Ate there last night. Although the place looked nice and was clean, the meat was as tough as an old horse. The fish was burnt and completely over cooked. Disappointing. We weren't staying there so can't comment on the accommodation.

Place low budget. With basic level of service. Rather old. Equipment in rooms over 20 years old. Everything is sticky. In bathrooms there is no taps. They use valves instead. This place needs Total refreshment. Food is good especialy fish and octopus.

Great location as very close to 3 shopping centres, safe and next to the public beach. Unfortunately if you count on a quiet relaxing on the beach I think you should choose a place with a private beach, otherwise be prepared that beach boys won't leave you alone even for 2 seconds. But there is a good size swimming pool... More

We had a very good stay and we enjoyed having the opportunity to cook our own meals, as we had a kitchen. Our apartment were very cosy, in good condition and fully equipped. The apartment was placed directly to the beach with a perfect view :-) Our stay was arranged by KM Safaris Kenya Ltd.

We were very well welcomed at Diani Campsite. We had a great time in this quiet place. The cottage was simple but comfortable enough and we were alone to enjoy the swimming pool and the good and not expensive restaurant . Very well located, you can go by foot from the airstrip (about 15-20 min), 2 minutes to the beach... More

Great location - next to a beautiful beach with plenty of water sports available (windsurfing, kite). The staff was very friendly. Restaurant offers some meals at reasonable prices. The grounds are very nice, there is a small swimming pool too. Many places in Diani are super expensive, this place turned out to be great less expensive alternative. Loved sitting on... More

It's my 2. time at Campsite. I really relax here of many reasons, the management, location, nice workers and the nice cats and dogs. It's only 70 meters from the ocean and 50 meters to the main road. A peaceful place I really want to visit more.

The cottages are a good choice to spend some relaxed days at Diani (as far as this is possible since the 'boys' are really stalking you constantly once you step out on the street). Simple but comfortable, good value for the money. The only downside is that the kitchens are not very well equipted. Real cooking is not possible, so... More

I called the morning before arriving in Diani and sent an e-mail asking if any rooms were available. Originally I wanted to stay at the campsite, but when I learned there was no hot water, my friend and I decided to stay in a cottage for 1,000pp. The next morning we arrived in Diani from Nairobi. Andrew had told me... More

i stayed here for a week with three friends last year. we had the two bedroom with a kitchen, and loved it! it was nice to get some groceries and cook in a few nights, rather than having to eat out all the time. there were basic amenities to cook and store food, which was great. the location was awesome-...

“get a room with the kitchen if you're staying for longer than just a day or two! it definitely opens up the place, and gives the room a more homey and open feel”
