"Lovely beach retreat, but beach boys so-so"
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." See all these reviews: 17n in Kenya
