Reviews & Testimonials of Whitesands Hotel

"Everything was just top class"

Our initial fears that the large 338-room hotel would be totally impersonal were quickly dispelled as soon as we took in the calming elegance of the impressive foyer and lobby. And it just got better. In fact the friendliness shown by every member of staff without exception created the impression of being in a much smaller and personal hotel.

After being welcomed with a glass of cooling fresh fruit juice we checked in were guided to our spacious sea view room, which met all our expectations. After that, a quick tour of our surroundings confirmed first impressions – that everything was just top class.

The travel brochures will tell you in detail of all the amenities Whitesands has to offer – the four pools, the kids’ club, the fitness centre, tennis, the evening entertainment, the open air beach bar and nightclub et al.

But let’s look at the things the brochures overlook... the space, the ambience, the lovingly-tended lawns, gardens and flower beds and a real gem – the adults-only quiet zone situated near the Tulia Spa, an oasis of peace and tranquillity with its own pool.

"Wished we could have stayed"

Arrived via Nairobi after one week safari to chill out. You can do as much or as little as you like. After breakfast in main restaurant, plenty of choice, did not see teenage daughters, apart from at pool, until after dinner in evening. Main restaurant for evening okay but tended to use Pasta Snack Bar. Putting flag up to top of short pole by pool lounger summoned a waiter who would bring snacks/drinks without too much difficulty. Coffee/Tea & cakes etc late afternoon very pleasant. 1st Floor room very acceptable with ocean view and balcony. Varied good entertainment around 9.30pm each night at Cocos Bar. Wished we could have stayed for a second week.
