We have now been visiting Lantana 4 times and every time has been a great pleasure. The accommodation is very good and the garden is lovely with the palm trees, flowering creepers and beautiful swimming pool near the beach which is one of the best we have ever seen. We enjoyed our meals at the restaurant with excellent service. We would love to come back again.

We only stayed here 2 nights but loved it. Actually, we initially booked it for 1 night, but stayed an extra one. The weather was pretty rainy, but the place was so nice it didn’t matter.

We stayed in one of the penthouses and it was amazing. Easily the most up to date place I’ve stayed in Kenya. My parents stayed in the 2 bedroom suite and that was as nice, just not as good of a view.

The food was also really good, and a nice variety. Staff was very friendly, but that’s been my experience across the board in Kenya. At least the coast.

Didn’t get to spend much time on the beach because of the weather, but access is good and it’s a beautiful white sand beach.

The drive from Mombasa is a little long, but it’s worth it.

I have stayed at Lantana Galu 3 times now and I keep going back. It is the convenience of having a fully fitted kitchen, a generous sized living space, combined with stunning views which keep bringing me back. The beach restaurant is good, the pool is super family friendly. The beach is also always quiet.

I really enjoyed my stay at Lantana, it really is a great spot and if the opportunity arises again I would return. The villas are large and comfortable. I read a review citing poor cleanliness but did not experience this. Staying in one of the villas gives you all the advantages of a hotel and a great place to retreat in the evening, rather than returning to a 40 sq meter hotel room. Perfect if travelling with a group or with children. The beach is fantastic with powder soft sand and fewer hawkers loitering than at the hotel further down.

Im not entirely sure I would want to stay in the main hotel however. The feel at reception is that this is more a serviced apartment than a hotel and lacks 'life/vibrancy'. Also the hotel rooms are some distance from the main pool and cafe. It comes across as a bit detached. This might be different in busier months however.

The food in the restaurant was actually decent. Particularly surprised at the pizza which was far better than expected. I love surprises like that.

However, regarding service, dont expect anything amazing, it will only ruin your mood. Like almost everywhere in Kenya it was completely hit and miss. Some staff were great and the others just in the wrong job. In the cafe it seemed that if Patience was not around, service levels fell like a stone. Im always astounded when I see non attentive waiters everywhere I go, the lost revenue because of missed drinks orders (opportunity cost) would wind me up if I was the owner.

Room tip: Bring one decent kitchen knife if you are planning on any cooking.

My wife and I arrived on May 3rd-7th for my nephew's wedding and were received cordially by management well versed with Hotel guests reception, thanks to Edward and Diana. We felt at home with a tropical rain forest ambient environment. The staff was very welcoming,helpful and very accommodating. The food was in varieties and mostly delicious. The pool was kept clean all the time and private beach serene. The rooms were clean and spacious.For all the above mentioned, we decided to stay for one more night and were readily and extremely fairly accommodated. The wedding was beautifully decorated and well conducted. Nothing much needed to be done as the place is a natural beauty. We'll definitely visit again soon. Shout out to Rashid and the rest of the restaurant staff.
