Driftwood Club

Pros

  • Right on the beach
  • Rooms have good a/c

Cons

  • Rooms are a bit basic for a hotel in this price range
  • Use of the in-room safe is extra
  • Some bandas look out onto the walkway so are not very private

Fodor's Review

In an attractive garden, these Swahili-style individual bandas, each with a thatch roof and small veranda, are seconds away from the pool and beach. The rooms, which have cool white tiled floors, colorful cushions and bedspreads, and sturdy wooden furniture, are in need of an update, but the bar and restaurant area is comfortable and attractive. The staff, always eager to see to your needs, can arrange for any type of water sports. The restaurant serves reasonably priced

seafood, and the pub is a gathering place for many expats living in the area. If you've always wanted to dive, the club will set up lessons for you; it also caters to experienced divers. The hotel is a favourite with sports fishermen. There are some private villas ideal for larger groups and families. Ask for a banda directly facing the sea.
