We’ve stayed in Dorado Cottage in December 2011. The territory of the hotel is green and clean, staff is nice, rooms are big, but!!! The beach was terrible and full of algae (almost 50 sm high). The staff tried to clean it, everyday they were cleaning and the day after the sea was bringing other tons and tons of algae… you also could not swim in the sea, cause algae was covering you all… DUSGUSTING!!! They say in august the beach should be better, because course of the sea is different… maybe, but, in December, it is definitely not the “paradise” beach, you see on advertizing booklets!!!

Food: good, but not a big choice. They also at the beginning of the vacations fix you on the table. If you are a couple, they put you together with other couple… so no romantic dinners… you will always be in the company.

Light and electricity: 2-3 time during our week stay there were electricity blackouts in the evening.

Air conditioning: old and laud.

Towels: OLD!!! DIRTY!!! Guys, please change them for the new once!!! The same with beach towels. The are terribly old!!!

Excursions: If you’ve decided anyway to go to that hotel, please do not take excursions from them!!! We referred to the excursions organized by the hotel, because we thought they should be more secure of the good quality. The girl, responsible for the excursions promised us a good jeep, Italian speaking guide, which will bring us to see all wonders of Kenian nature. All that were just promises, nothing more. Other people, which referred to the Kenian local agencies for safari tours and beach boys, paid much less and saw more animals. Our guide didn’t speak Italian, and jeep we had was so old, that it stopped in the middle of the savanna at 17:00… they tried to repaired it, then called other drivers and made it work… but it was very bad experience!!! When we came back to the hotel, we claimed about the terrible excursion, but we received no excuses, no explanations and no money back for sure… the director of the hotel tried to resolve the issue, but without the result (though, we are thankful for that try anyway).
