Good family hotel

Review by FH2 London

We spent 6 nights here with our 2 daughters age 10 and 13. Things did not start well - we were given rooms with a constant humming noise. After an hour, we were told this was due to a problem with the chiller equipment in the block and so we were moved to different rooms...

Unfortunately these smelled strongly of damp and after spending our first night there, we asked to move again. The next day we were given different rooms which were much better. The staff were very pleasant but the experience was very inconvenient and really the first two rooms that we were given should never have been given to guests in the first place as they were not fit for purpose. To the hotel's credit, the gave us a complimentary meal at the a la carte Lido restaurant by way of apology, which we appreciated. Housekeeping was hit and miss - one day our room did not get cleaned until 5.30pm this is only because I called them and asked them to come - they had apparently forgotten. Another time the housekeeper forgot to replace our towels and drinking water. The hotel was very busy and I got the impression that the staff were struggling to cope. For example, breakfast was fairly chaotic and it took a long time to be served tea and coffee. On the plus side, the food at the buffet was excellent (breakfast and dinner) with plenty of variety each night. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pools were lovely and we always found sunbeds without any trouble. The beach is also very nice. It is worth noting that the pool-facing rooms are very noisy - loud music all day from the poolside and then again in the evening until about midnight from the bar. Overall we did enjoy our stay and this is a good resort for families, but for the reasons above, it did not feel like a truly five star experience.

Beautiful views, great staff

Review by Ed S London, United Kingdom

I stayed here on business for nearly two weeks and thought the hotel was very good. Great service and variety of bars and food. This is very much a resort hotel catering for families and i'm sure that it's perfect for a family break...

The noise from the bars could be too loud though depending on how close your sea facing room is to either the Coco or the Lido Bars. Keep your balcony door shut when you go out of the monkeys will be in :-) The gym equipment needs updating. I would definitely return to Whitesands.

A fantastic beach hotel for a relaxing stay before or after a Kenyan Safari

Review by TonyL5178 Kemnay, United Kingdom

We have stayed in lots of hotels around the world and Sarova Whitesands is certainly up there with the best of them. We stayed for 7 days with a 4 day safari in between.

The rooms and facilities are excellent, the restaurants and bars are great and the staff are superb, Even a Covid 19 mask cannot hide their smiles and friendly welcome.

We enjoyed a daily visit to the Lido bar and the service we received from Sylvia and Julia made our stay especially memorable.

Nice but noisy

If you want a tranquil beach holiday and to sleep at night, this is NOT the place for you. It has many positives, no doubt. But every night of my stay included loud music blasting from the resort’s event space...

It was so loud as to vibrate the windows of my room and lasted until 2am. Management was apologetic but changed nothing. Apart from the loud music at night, it’s a lovely place.
