Poor 2.0
Not resorts, most bad service in my life
I don't know where to start. First at all, it is not resort. It is like apartment village. When we checked in, they tried to give us a tiny room with single bed without fan (we booked studio with kitchen). We did not accept it, they gave us another one. Room was dirty. Fan or wifi did not work. Kitchen had 2 plates and cups, no stove or even water heater. Sink did not come water. Shower comes salty water directly from ocean. Laundry service by hands, dirty towels and sheets. It is not beach front, you need to walk 7min to beach middle of bush. Breakfast. Cold beans, cold pasta, chapata, sausage, cabbage, eggs. Bread sometimes, nothing to put on. One time had raw meatballs. If you are vegetarian, there is nothing for you to eat. First day we arrived we were tired and wanted to eat in “resort restaurant". They had many pages menu, but only they could serve was chicken, rice and fries. Total 8usd plate 1 chickenleg and rice, you have to wait 1,5 hours to come. Waiters brings the bill for you at the same time with a food, and rushing you to pay before you even touch your plate. Second and third night same thing, only chicken. We spoke directly with manager, that go supermarket and buy vegetables,meat, fish.. 4 nights, had only chicken. Waiter begging, please take chicken.. We took tuktuk to ukunda and ate delicious food with 2usd/plate. We asked stove and cooked our meals rest of the days. Bar they served mojito, no ice or alcohol, most bad my life. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!

Very good 8.0
I had a great time. Very welcoming and comforting stuff. Available 24 hours attending our needs. Property is clean and the rooms are also ok. The tap water is soo salty, couldn't even wash my mouth with it. My only disappointment is the breakfast menu. Only one or two meals are available due to lack of ingredients. But the shefs tried to make the best from what they had. But all in all, we had a great time.

A budget hotel that is clean. Basically, you get what you pay for; it isn't a luxury hotel and that is reflected in the price.

Very good 8.0
Am Anfang gab es Schwierigkeiten wegen der Buchung, weil erst wurde ich vom Taxifahrer ins Bright Star gefahren. Nach langer Diskussion wurde ich dann in das Diplomat hotel gefahren. Da war natürlich alles super und sauber
Catherine, de14 night trip
Fair 4.0
Bad choice.
Located a bit away “from everything”. One guy at reception was very service minded, the rest terribly slow. Things not to like: Breakfast is from 7:30 to 10, but if you come after 9 half the dishes are gone including juice. On request for more I was given the same answer two days in a row; get up earlier! Seriously...? WiFi is terrible, on/off every 5 seconds. The drinkingwater they provide in rooms taste like 1942. Water in shower/tap is salty. In total quite a boring place that will never reach any form for heydays. Will not stay again.

Virkelig dårlig service
Hotellet var overbooket, så de kunne ikke tilbyde os det vi havde booket, ej heller en seng hver. Vi har også sendt en klage til vedrørende dette, men mangler fortsat svar.
