Hotel's Favourite
I loved the time that I had spend in the Hotel. It was the best 10 days experience I have had in the south coast. The staff was my absolute favorite part because they were all extremely kind, open hearted, patient and resourceful and they provided the best hospitality. The food was beyond amazing as well as the safety measures taken. One other favorite part of my trip there was the Entertainment which was provided by the Zuri team. this team was very special and remarkable in terms of performance, friendliness and having fun. The team really showed my Family and I a really good time and I appreciate their hard work and resentment. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in the South coast, Diani and I would visit there again.

My friends and I stayed at Diani Reef Beach Resort early September for 3 magical nights. The room was quite spacious with lovely garden and ocean views. The food was very very delicious compared to all the places we visited for lunch! All the staff were very courteous and accommodated our request to change rooms with ease. Thanks to Susan, Joseph in guest relations and Sarah and all the waiters. Really spot on services. We also enjoyed the gym with Cedric engaging us in serious workouts. The only thing we would have liked to have was more water in the rooms as they only provide two small bottles instead of at least 2litres per room. Other than that, I would most definitely recommend Diani Reef Beach Resort. They also charge per room basis which was quite affordable. Planning on my return soon

coming to diani reef beach resort and spa was one of my biggest desire. I never expected what I experienced when I was there..the service was perfect,the food was amazing. My team and I did enjoy the stay and we really recommend the place. Our lunch was at beach and the waiter was guiding us accordingly to what we could eat. Chengo Stephen was our waiter and we were with him during our stay. He was flexible and ready to help whenever we needed him...he is the guy. Our conference (Victory impact global) was so cool but you must repair the vip hall. Thank you diani reef.

I made a call on the morning of August 24 to inquire for a stay over night and was attended by Mohammed. A top customer service guy. He got everything explained as i expected. I and my girlfriend later checked in around 3pm. It took only 5 minutes for all procedures at the reception. The reception ladies were both amazing. Beautiful smiles in their faces that tells it all. The room was nice but could be improved as there lacked some touches. Fragrance was missing, the walls need a touch of paint, TV to be updated as we couldn't watch any other channel a part from the existing Deutch one. The evening entertainment was great as the guys were energetically doing their best. The fact that the hotel was quite. Breakfast was amazing. A wide selection at the mini-buffet. I loved the fruits as my girlfriend went for some omellettes. I requested for masala tea and one waiter i think his name's Steven, he just went out of his way to make sure we were happy. He does his job with a lot of enthusiasm and we couldn't thank him enough. The rest of the servers were too nice and we just love the way the Covid-19 procedures were followed, everyone with a mask in tact and gloves. I was reminded several times to put on my mask by the servers.....😀😀. Well some of us aren't into any worry of covid-19. Generally the hotel deserves thumbs up just because the staffs make it a better place to stay. We will soon come back. Note: Pass our humble regards to Steven.(Waiter)
