We had a lot of fun and even found friends 😊. Thanks Jacaranda for this nice time and special Thanks to Baya, Ana,...

Beaufitul place, amazing white beach. Staff was very friendly, they were smilling at us, greeting us and asking if everything's allright, and the entertainment crew was just perfect :)) we spent a lot of time with them from the morning stretching till evening showtime. One of them-Anna took us to the market not far from the hotel and showed us...

We were very disappointed with our visit this time. We were a party of 5 and all wanted a snack with drinks. We ordered burgers as advertised on the board on the beach. When our plates arrived, we found we had been given chips instead of crisps which none of us ate as we weren't that hungry and hadn't ordered...

The rooms were really above average and very neat, though it took us long for the receptionist to check us in, but it was a worthy experience all in all, the only thing id request is for the hotel to expand on the food variety, because food was pretty basic, the hotel should also find means to provide guests with...

The last time I stayed here was some 20 years ago, as newlyweds, so it was great to come back for the New Year with our kids. The beach is still fantastic, and there are also nice small pools dotted about as well as the big one. The food is simple but tasty and varied. The staff are invariably helpful...

Dear LGuarino, How gratifying to hear you visited with us after twenty years! We appreciate you. We know the rains that poured on New Year's eve might have dampened the spirit a little but we are glad you were still able to enjoy your holiday. Please come again.

Hotel is beautiful right from the hotel lobby. Rooms are good, either garden view or ocean view. No complaints there. Food is the major issue, from what I experienced at the main restaurant. Variety was limited and food was not what I expected from culinary trained staff. This is a hotel that I can go back too in a heartbeat,...

I would have given this hotel a fifth star: it has good management, good service, great setting, but it is let down by its lunch menu. Don't get me wrong. The breakfasts are good and the dinner buffets are fine. However, the lunch menu (a la carte) needs a big upgrade, especially for the expensive prices. The good news is...

Had the pleasure of spending a few days here for work. Nice place, friendly staff, ok food. No wifi in the room; not a problem if on holiday but cumbersome since I had to work. Overall very relaxing and peaceful!

We arrived very early morning, after crossing on the ferry from Mombasa. Monkeys and birds watched us from the trees. The reception area is beautiful with local wood and stone and locally made furniture.
