10/10 Exceptional

This place is amazing, enchanting and magical. I saw everything except a leopard, hippo and rhino. I felt like I was in a movie! The experience surpasses your expectations, lots of value for your money. I met a great tour guide in Mombasa that drove me there and was attentative, informative and professional. His name is Peter Tolle +254 725 220013 and he is ready to do the same for others. You can mention my name (Leslie) for extra perks :).

It was a fantastic holiday..I had a chance to see all the wild animals around the hotel..the staff was friendly, rooms were clean, the hotel has a spectacular view to observe the wild animals.But the most annoying thing we were asked to pay the parking fee. Parking fee isn’t mentioned anywhere while booking.

This is an amazing destination, especially since it was designed in 1964 and yet has a timeless feel of both unique and functional appeal. All that said the friendly staff was the BEST! We love you Kenyans

Come once and expect a return visit.
Facility, staff, and overall location was divine. Staff always with a smile and customer service beyond this world. Maintenance of the facilities seemed to be a priority as well. The food was always delicious. The views were better than lion king movie. Amazing

Animals at your doorstep!!
This place is AMAZING! You don’t even need to go on a safari all the animals come to you and drink from the watering hole at the hotel!!! You can spend your whole day watching them or go on a safari and see all the others all right in the park! Very cool place! Only thing would be better if it was all- inclusive as only got a bottle of water in room and no where else to get it.
