Client Rating for Kenya 5/5 from 58 reviews

AfroChic is possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Richard Johnson and his team have a real ethos of personal but unobtrusive service which just doesn't exist anymore in Europe. As well as Richard, I'd particularly like to mention Donald and Fiah who really brightened my stay by talking at length about ordinary life in the Diani area. The food, setting and service are amazing and I have never enjoyed a hotel stay so much.
