Lovely beach retreat, but beach boys so-so

This is a lovely relatively small hotel on northern part of Diani beach. Staff very kind, a lovely pool, right on the beach which would also be quite nice: if only you could step outside of the hotel area and go for a walk without being approached by ‘beach boys’ (that hotel stuff just warned you about) that want to do business with you, be that a key ring, a coconut or just a donation because life is tough if you’ve no job. It’s hard not to sympathise, and i am sure most of those guys are genuine good people in a bad situation. However the net effect is that you feel a little bit in a siege, which is not great, with 10 km of which beach right there for you to enjoy.

Going to visit Mombasa is a plan we considered and abandoned as the ferry is very temperamental and it can end up taking much longer than we were willing to, just to get there and get back. See excursions: we went on a short snorkelling trip which was ok, but not earth shattering. There was another full-day trip which looked nicer, but was quite pricey for a family of 5 and we ended up not going.

So the hotel was very nice with lovely food and great staff. Things to do outside the hotel - in relative freedom - a bit less so.
