We spent ten days at this very warm, friendly and welcoming hotel. We were thoroughly spoilt with delicious food and fabulous service. There is a very relaxed atmosphere and nothing was too much trouble. All the staff that we met at The Dream of Africa were brilliant, Constance, Ernest, Raphael, Jacquiline, Moses, Newton, Peter, Richard, Elvis, Kambi and especially Edward....

I'm one of demanding clients, but this time I have something very nice to tell you :) It was the first time in Kenya and what is more important – it was the first holidays with NO disappointments.

The hotel is about 2.5hrs drive from Mombasa Airport. The rooms are very spacious. The double bed is quite big and a mosquito net is provided. The minibar (with soft drinks) is refilled twice a day. Food is excellent. For lunch you choose from the menu (soup, pasta, main course) plus salad and dessert buffet. For dinner it is either...

We had one night here in transit, booked by internet. The room was beautiful, delicately arranged bouganvillea flowers everywehere including the loo! Our "junior suite" was a suite indeed, balcony/lounger; big room, sitting area,. bathroom, jacuzzi. The only disappointment was the volume of water in the shower - perhaps due to the end of the dry season. All main drinks...

We booked Dream of Africa as it was just about the smallest hotel we could find offered by our tour operator on the Kenyan coast and seemed to fit our requirements - beach, good food and service, high standard of accommodation and peace and tranquility.
