    Fantastic views, excellent architecture, excellent food, wonderful and caring service from the restaurant (Timothy, Dolla, Constance, Mariam, Jussy, Raphael, Josephat, Hussein), to the rooms (Michael), to reception (Collins) and, of course, the chefs. We had an infant, and the hotel made him feel like a little King. We will be forever grateful. THANK YOU.

    Bra hotell med ok service

    Ett bra hotell med bra läge precis vid stranden. Maten var bra. Servicen kunde varit bättre. Pga covid kunde poolen endast användas en timme om dagen och bokas i förväg.

    Kenia... di sicuro non ti viene il mal d' africa

    Ciao a tutti, il mio soggiorno al Diamond Dream of Africa è stato positivo al 100%. Ottima la cucina ed il servizio molto disponibile in sala, Fantastica la posizione sul mare. Voto al Dream of Africa senz' altro 10 e lode. I problemi nascono al di fuori della struttura. I beach boys, ragazzi, uomini e bambini, appena vedono un bianco ci si attaccano come delle mosche e ti continuano a seguire finche' non ottengono qualche cosa. Il turismo in kenia è crollato a picco, questo è uno dei maggiori prolemi ma credo sia irrisolvibile. Di sicuro questa sara' la mia ultima vacanza in Kenia

    Very nice hotel, super friendly staff. We shall never forget the paronamic view of the Indian Ocean while eating breakfast at the restaurant. The only thing that could use an update is the gym area.
