Top notch 10/10 service, efficient, and friendly staff. I would not change a thing. thoroughly enjoyed my stay there, albeit an overnight stay. I would definitely visit again and for longer this time.

We booked a suite within the hotel at Zimbali Coastal Resort, check-in was totally shambolic. Although (we later learned) the suite was let by a private owner, the hotel is fully aware of this but did nothing to help us. We arrived after a 6 hour journey, went to the Capital Zimbali and were told that no one knew where our suite was. The reception staff were incredibly unhelpful. A security guard was very kind and escorted us to the Welcome Suite further up the estate. By this time, we had spent 1.5 hours trying to find our room. Fearing the worst (that we had been scammed) I was extremely upset. The guy in the Welcome Suite was patient, helpful and telephoned the reception staff.....he told them exactly what we had told them but somehow he got them to understand.....and back we went again. It transpired, the agent for the apartment had visited the resort earlier that day but the hotel refused to take the key from her. As a result, the agent had to come back to the hotel out of hours to provide us with the key. By now, it was 2 hours after arriving at the hotel. We were tired, hungry and upset. We eventually settled into the room at 7pm. This could have all been avoided if the reception staff had been willing to help. Beware, if you book a suite or private apartment within the resort you will get very little help.

Although it was a short stay, but it was a sweet stay. Food is great. The team members are so nice and helpful. The hotel is huge with lots and lots to do. With a very modern structure, the is always kept clean. Lovely views. Enjoyed my stay. I will be back for sure.

It is the best place to be if you need a deluxe experience. This place has all you need in one place - both for entertainment and just unwinding. If you need a place to be where you don't need to plan activities outside the establishment, then this is your place. You will never get bored especially with the kids.

Wonderful place for a family vacation away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Close to Balito Junction Mall in case you want to have your lunch/dinner away from the resort; free shuttle service provided to the mall. A walk away from the Indian ocean Friendly staff, excellent and wide choice of food from all the restaurants.

Since Capital has taken over the property the service and experience has been nothing but disappointing. 1. The rooms were unclean when checking in: bathroom bin was not clean and left a smell. 2. Cups in room were dirty and had lipstick marks from previous guests. 3. Several instances we were left unattended too especially when booking shuttles. I understand it’s a busy period but cleanliness should be a priority!

My family of 5 visited The Capital Zimbali in November for my son’s 10th birthday from Georgia, USA. The resort exceeded our expectations by far! The facilities were immaculate, the rooms and interior absolutely beautiful, and the service from all of the staff was simply incredible! The pictures that you see online, is what you get in person, if not better. I have recommended so many people from home to visit because we had a spectacular time. Every meal was prepared so well and the flavors were delicious. Our safety was never in question staying and moving throughout the resort. It was great!

Beautiful place with great amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We even got the best of both in weather where there were sunny days (allowing us to embrace the facilities and pool) as well as rainy days (where we enjoyed the room facilities & service). We had the best time in this beautiful establishment. Loved everything about it.
