I have just returned from a week at African dream cottages Diani Mombasa and will be returning on my next visit! The compound itself is in a great location for diani shopping, the beach and nightlife (opposite forty thieves!). The beach is about 7 minutes walk pole pole, the shops (supermarket for water etc...) are 5!
The cottages are not the most attractive but the whole place looks great with the pool and bar/restaurant area being beautiful! It is quiet without being dull and you feel comfortable with the staff and security, both of whom are great!
I ate at the restaurant a few times for dinner and the food was good and reasonably priced, breakfast is included and was nice....a few more choices would be better!
The rooms are functional but the bed makes it seem more luxurious which is good, bathrooms, towels etc...All clean and nice! The fan is necessary for Mombasa and was not intrusive or loud!
Overall a really nice place to stay....good value especially if it wasn't peak season!! The owner knows alot of useful people for taxis, places to eat etc...which was really good, only downside for me was no wifi!!!
