Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia5 contributions1 helpful vote
5* rating! Honestly don't know where to begin! From an extremely welcoming check in to check out. Everything has just been super. The food here was my highlight! Everything is fresh! Breakfast, lunch and dinner was perfectly made. It's probably the best food I have ever had in a hotel in mombasa/diani. Service was excellent! Well done to abdallah, Albert and hamisi for taking care of us. They know what Customer Service means. Extremely nice and welcoming. Thank you waterlovers for the best honeymoon! We will see you soon. CIAO

This was not my first time at waterlovers and it’s certainly not my last. From the moment I arrived I felt so welcomed here. All the staff here are so polite and friendly, you really feel at home. The food is also amazing, a great vegetarian menu and also delicious breakfast. My highlight was probably the lobster.
