For the first time after the management change I was back in Jacaranda. I had two wonderful weeks. The service of the entirely staff was great. There is no better place in Diani to enjoy a quiet and good quality holiday.

I recently visited Jacaranda on holiday, and it was a quiet, peaceful, relaxing experience. This hotel is on the north side of Diani Beach, but there are plenty of cheap tuk tuks to shuttle you back and forth to local restaurants and attractions. There was a small issue with my being charged an extra day, but the front desk coordinator...

We revisited this hotel after 5 years during which time it has been refurbished. The rooms are lovely, especially those overlooking the Ocean. There were very few guests during our visit. This made it nice and quiet but, unfortunately, meant that there were no longer huge buffets under the Baobab trees with music and fairy lights. Hopefully, those days will...

We weren't allowed to swim in the sea as it was considered too dangerous and when we asked if we could take beach towels to swim elsewhere on the diani beach they refused. There was no wifi in the rooms. The food didn't have enough/any vegetarian options... Lovely staff and location but ultimately a let down.

As a matter of precaution we alert our guests whenever the ocean tides are too high for safe swimming. This we do by way of hoisting colour coded flags to indicate the level of risk. Green for Safe; Orange for Exercise Caution; and Red for Dangerous. During the time in question the tides were high most of the time and...

Beautiful rooms with balconies facing the ocean, Restaurant/dining area with a view of the ocean......fantastic! Nice selection over breakfast. Polite and friendly staff. Would go back.
