My husband and I spent 5 days at Diani Reef Beach Resort and Spa. We had a very relaxing time. The airport pickup and drop-off were so smooth. Our driver gave us a lot of insight into the region. Our check-in was easy and Samual, at the front desk, was always around to help. Susan is so pleasant! She booked us a beautiful sunset river excursion and also connected us to in-room covid testing prior to our departure. It was so simple! My husband did a couple of one-on-one workout sessions with Cedrick in the gym and he was happy with the instruction. Although half the hotel was under construction you don't even notice. There were some points when we felt like we had the entire resort to ourselves. We are both looking forward to returning with our children soon.
