Lovely hotel very relaxed atmosphere


Have recently returned after 12 night stay, the complex is well laid out with large good quality rooms and a good size pool with 2 adjoining beaches. Food choice was generally good, we didn't eat in euther of the speciality restaurants but from people we spoke with the saud they were excellent. There were a few issues with water and electricity supplies but they were quickly resolved. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming especially at the time we were there due to Covid-19 the hotel was gradually closing down as no new bookings were arriving. When we arrived there was between 150 and 200 guests by the time we left there were about 30. Would definitely return

Very nice hotel

Murkle, United Kingdom

Stayed here for 2 nights pre safari, then 4 nights post safari. First thing we need to mention are the pancakes, delicious! Every afternoon 3.30 till 5.00pm there is free afternoon tea, tea, coffee cake, sandwiches.....and pancakes, freshly made, with no limit as to how many you take. Pool is nice enough, could do with a good clean around the edge, green 'scum' all the way around the water line. Would take an hour or two in the evening to scrub off. Looks awful. As others have mentioned, pool towels can be hit and miss....often none available due to laundry being late. Very limited shady areas around the pool. Rooms are pleasant enough with good air con, just what you need. Strong sulphur smell in bathroom when you run the taps. Had this in both rooms we stayed in pre and post safari. Nice shower gel, shampoo etc., replaced as needed. Shower is desalinated water that never gets very warm, just tepid. But that's enough in the African heat, not a complaint. We had ground floor rooms which get two sun loungers and a patio. This suited us rather than a 1st floor room that gets a small balcony with 2 chairs. If you want towels for the sun loungers, you need to ask at reception. Food, buffet style, good choice most nights. Only 'complaint' is men are expected (vigorously enforced) to wear long trousers! This is a holiday resort with buffet dining, not fine dining. Smart shorts would be more suited to this climate. The amount of men wearing jeans that they travelled in was huge. Some men were wearing scruffy tracksuit bottoms, apparently these are acceptable rather than smart shorts??? UK travel agents really need to make this policy clear before travel. Or the hotel should relax the policy, this is not a Michelin starred restaurant! Service is very hit and miss in the restaurant. Just accept you may have an interesting choice of cutlery! If you need anything, just ask (rather than complain) and someone will eventually get what you need. Small point regarding dress code. Women can wear what they like, including skimpy shorts and tops! Breakfast is very good, more pancakes! Only thing that could be improved is the speed at which things are replenished, often no fruit juices available. Drink prices. Way over the top! Water is 350ksh (about £2.50 per litre) Coke is 250ksh. Out on safari, in the middle of the bush, hotel prices were far less, 150ksh! Our advice would be to walk 10 mins up the road (turn left out of hotel) and buy water in the supermarket, 70ksh for 1.5 litres. The walk is safe and easy. Beach is ok, there are loungers available with shade. Beach sellers will approach you, but will give up eventually once they get that No means No. They are chatty and not rude, but is does get weary keep saying no thanks. Sea water is very warm, don't expect to cool down! Staff are really friendly and helpful in all areas of the hotel. Check out is 10am, we asked to extend this to 11.00am, and hotel obliged. Thank you, made a big difference. Lots of monkeys on the grounds. Adorable to look at. Keep your patio door shut as they love to explore! Overall, very pleasant stay and would recommend. One final comment, we were unaware that you cannot bring plastic bags into Kenya. You can be fined at the airport. We handed ours over on arrival. So take something else for bringing back laundry. 4 day Safari with Pollman's reviewed separately.
