Outstanding staff and grounds

Newport, United Kingdom

My wife and I have just returned from a 12 night stay at DSR following a 5 day safari and it was a perfect place to chill out after an excellent but tiring tour with Transtrek safaris who I would highly recommend. My son and sister also joined us for the safari and first week at the Hotel to celebrate my 60th birthday and I was overwhelmed with the cake and celebratory presentation dance the waiting staff put on for me at dinner. When talking about the staff here we couldn't have asked for a more friendly helpful team they are outstanding, the Resort should be proud of them and I hope this message of appreciation gets back to them. Everyone was a joy but I will just give a special mention to the one's we talked to most, firstly Valentine of reservations who I corrasponded with online for several months before our visit and she was always quick and accommodating with her replies. Nasib and Daniel of animation always found time to talk and joke with us even though we didn't take part in all the activities while Nzai Ali Swaleh Ruwa and Lydia gave fantastic waiting service from the bar and dining room. Restaurant supervisor Sheila also went out of her way to try and make sure there was more ice on hand for evening drinks after we complained of a lack of it and Koi who kept the pool area clean and tidy always gave us a morning "Jambo" when we settled down on our sunbeds around the amazing warm pool. The guys on the front desk were also very helpful. The only fault I could give of this resort apart from sometimes being short of ice in the evenings is the room towels could be a bit softer but this is a minor issue and there are far more positives including beautifully kept gardens an excellent beachfront location and some good evening entertainment. Thank you to the DSR team for a wonderful stay.
