Very good hotel - but needs to do it's bit!
A very good hotel - although the price (as everything in Djibouti) is ridiculous. The hotel didn't arrange a pick-up from the airport, even though I had requested - and despite their being Kempinski cars, they refused to take me - but other than that, the stay was great. Very comfortable bed, in a well furnished and clean room. Food quality was very good - and staff were very friendly. (Although the expectation that you tip high for everything is annoying) The only thing I'd say - is that in a country with plastic waste everywhere, Kempinski really should be doing more. Plastic straws, plastic stirrers, plastic in the bathroom - it's nearly 2020 and you're using 2000 ideas. A few healthier menu options, without meat would be nice too.

Poor 2,0
Crow-infested Kempinski
Absolutely filthy property considering this is not a cheap hotel. Crows and bird poop everywhere. The lawn by the pool was brown and covered with trash (as was the private beach). Unacceptable given the price to stay there. On the bright side, the service and hotel staff--especially the managers--were super nice. The food onsite was pricey but very good.

Best meal in Africa!
Wow, They treated us so well! We loved the day trip to Lac Assal; just the right combination of a little adventure with a chance to see the lowest spot in Africa which is stunningly beautiful. We stayed two nights should have stayed three. Definitely enjoy the Yemeni bread and fish at the Bankoule restaurant right on the beach in the hotel. Absolutely fabulous.

Lovely oasis.
Amazing beds, literally like lying on a cloud! The food was okay, not great especially the Italian restaurant. Great breakfast though and the pool overlooks the ocean. Everything is expensive in Djibouti, but this is worth the best money for value in Djibouti.

Best place to stay in Djibouti
Nice hotel, great location by beach, good restaurants and fantastic service. Really enjoyed my time there - relaxing by the pool. Concierge Thiam can arrange anything - really helpful. Not cheap, either rooms or food, but worth it.

A surreal place in an even more surreal country
Yes the hotel and everything in it are overpriced and out of place. But whatever your reason is for being in this country, the odds are so are you.
