The beach was perfect, the water pristine. It did rain, but I was there in April (tis the season!) The food at the attached restaurant was good. The...

Are you looking for delicious meals, affordable accomodation right at the beach and world class surfing in Diani, don't look any further. The kite village have it all.

Next to the sea, this is a good place to rest yourself for holiday! This is pretty quiet. Pay attention with the monkeys in the threes. Just one thing missing: fresh fish on the menu. This is a place just next to the sea.. Otherwise room are quiet normal.

Thank you very much for your review we really appreciate your time. Here it is impossible to not have fresh fish on the menu as the fisherman come to the door every day with their fresh catch, and it is on the menu everyday. Therefore you must have been mistaken for thinking it was not fresh. In Diani there is...

I hadn't stayed on Diani Beach for over thirty years and had forgotten what a truly wonderful beach it is. Kenyaways is probably the best spot on the beach too. Great room with a great view, good food, very friendly and very helpful staff, easy going atmosphere - everything we could have wished for.

If you are looking for a small family run, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere this is the place for you. It has bags of character, fantastic staff, great location and value for money. What more could you ask for on Galu beach! We will be back for more..

We had a wonderful time in this hotel. The team is adorable as the reception, the restaurant team or club team Kite surfing on site. The rooms are comfortable and the hotel is well maintained. Linzy is very attentive to the demands of its customers so that we spend a great stay.
