Spent 3 nights at Amani Tiwi and not sure I can visit again. The rooms are big and spacious with a balcony. However, the food is below average and on the last night meat ran out! It was strange with the waiter saying there were too many people. The coffee was exceptionally cold and weak. Largely the service was underwhelming....

It's really not what I expected. The rooms are extremely basic, nothing to write home about. The customer service is poor. We came in on full board and each and every time we ordered a drink, the waiter would remind us that we would have to pay for the drinks in a very condescending manner. This was highly irritating because...

We visited the place in February 2016. On the first day we went to the breakfast and just from the breakfast to meeting with resident. During that time (1.5h estimated) somebody clearly was in our room and managed to check it very well - 100 USD in cash were missing (and they were very well hidden). We immediately told this...

Amani Tiwi is a pleasant resort to spend a few days on the beach in Kenya. Even the standard rooms are spacious and air conditioned. The beach is beautiful and clean.

The hotel is quite lovely, friendly staff for sure but a bit too inquisitive at times. The food was disappointing, repetitive and at times just bland.
