The Paradise is one of four hotels belonging to the Sentido Neptune brand, and is a comfortable choice for holidaymakers looking for a decent hotel with a dash of Kenyan sun and sea. Its added advantage is that guests may use the pools and restaurants at the neighbouring Sentido Neptune Village hotel. It shares a large beachfront with its sister hotels Village and Palm, making it an ideal place for families with young children.

    Location 7.0 /10

    Sentido Neptune Paradise is located right next door to the Village and Palm resorts on Mombasa's famed south coast, and is less than a 10 minute drive into the tourist hub of Diani. The Likoni Ferry crossing is about a 30 minute drive away, while Mombasa's Moi International Airport is over an hour's drive from the resort.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    There are 90 superior rooms at Sentido Neptune Paradise, found throughout a collection of square whitewashed cottages with traditional makuti thatched roofs. Each room is clean and spacious and features a large double bed dressed in crisp white linen, simple throw and scattered in pretty, oriental cushions. Other basic inclusions include a wooden desk, television, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. Tasteful art adorns the walls and there is also a small terrace. The medium sized bathrooms may not be the most modern but are clean and adequate.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The lovely lobby provides a promising introduction to the hotel; thoughtfully decorated in a local, traditional style, with sculpted wood details, Swahili lanterns, lashings of natural materials and animal prints. While there are some old canoes converted into bookcases and lounge chairs; the centrepiece is surely the beautiful fountain crafted from the trunk of an old baobab tree. Down through the gardens (the star attraction being the enormous Travelling Palm), guests will surely admire the well maintained grounds, awash in tall, shady trees and pretty bougainvillea. Towards the beachfront and at the heart of the hotel is a large free form pool with sunken swim-up bar. A smattering of bamboo sun loungers and straw parasols surround the pool, while there is also a nearby area used for animation activities. On the other side of the bar and restaurant features are the spacious lawns which overlook the beach, providing guests with lots of room to move about.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    There are two restaurants on site, even if guests may also eat next door at the Village hotel's restaurant. The Olive Kitchen à la carte restaurant overlooks the pool and serves a selection of meat and seafood dishes, with starters priced around 300ksh (£2.40) and mains upwards of 1000ksh (£7.95). The open-air setting, combined with the bright turquoise wicker cane dining settings and fresh blue and white table linen creates a very summery feel. Across a little bridge brings you to the buffet restaurant (local/international cuisine) known as Peponi (it means "uplifted place" in Swahili), a huge space with high ceilings and large glass arched windows that overlook the ocean. The wooden buffet stations are decorated with flowers and objets d'art, while on the exposed brick walls behind them are displayed wall hangings, tapestries and carvings. The colour scheme of maroon and salmon gives the restaurant a cosy feel, despite its size. Next door is a pleasant tea and coffee lounge in a separate gazebo structure known as 'The Deck,' also boasting ocean views. Meanwhile, the main bar is named Mashua - "sailing boat" in Swahili - so called for its, you guessed it, sailing boat setting; complete with carved dolphin bar stools, and sails, buoys, ropes and nets for decoration.

    Beach 9.20 /10

    The jewel in the crown at all three south coast Sentido Neptune hotels (Paradise, Village and Palm) is undoubtedly its magnificent beach. Galu Beach boasts a wide stretch of soft, white sand leading to the blue-green waters of the Indian Ocean. It is definitely one of the best beaches on Mombasa coast. There is lots of room to roam about, play a spot of beach volleyball, or to join in the animation activities such as the 'tug of war.' Sun loungers and beach chairs are found within the hotel grounds but not on the beach itself.

      The Ocean Village Club is a hotel belonging to the Paladien chain, located on the Indian Ocean. It is one of the few hotels on the coast to have retained a human scale. Tranquillity is the keyword for this place. Those in search of rest and little entertainment will be satisfied, both couples and families.

      One of the oldest hotels on the Mombasa south coast, the Baobab is something of an institution, still going strong after 36 years. Traditionally a hit with German holidaymakers who had always thought it "their hotel," the Baobab is now a place where tourists flock to from all over Europe. Large and unpretentious, this all inclusive beach resort is all about the wide range of activities it offers its guests, while the animation team is excellent, making the Baobab a great choice for families.

      You may have heard the Sentido Neptune name before; after all, the brand has four properties on the Mombasa coast alone, with the Palm being their luxury offering. Streets ahead of its north coast Beach Resort and the neighbouring Village and Paradise hotels, Palm boasts gorgeous rooms and excellent facilities, all a stone's throw away from the exciting tourist centre of Diani. This is a fine choice for couples who are looking for luxury and comfort in a relaxed setting.

      The name says it all: "Afrochic," a small boutique hotel featuring 10 rooms that combine different African styles with a hefty dose of chic. In a quiet corner of Kenya's famed Diani Beach, Afrochic Diani is a suitable choice for holidaymakers looking for a romantic escapade. However, little to no entertainment facilities means this might not be the best choice for those with young children.

      Just try and keep yourself from ooh-ing and aah-ing at the Almanara, for not only are the villas stunning, but the attention to detail that has gone into their decoration is quite impressive. This is one of the premier luxe choices in the Mombasa region and it's not hard to see why. But even if the utter fabulousness is there, we couldn't help but feel that there was something quite 'Western' about it. That said, if you're after dashing good looks and all the bells and whistles that go along with it, you'll certainly find it at the Almanara.

      The Serena Beach Hotel and Spa is often voted as one of the best hotels in Mombasa or even Africa and it's not hard to see why. Scoring points from the get go with its beautiful lobby and entrance, professional welcome and efficient check in, the Serena should not disappoint. A luxury property that remains faithful to the local Swahili architectural style, without going over the top, this medium sized property also does a good job of avoiding the impersonal feel that is often felt at other 'clubs' and resorts of similar size. The Serena Beach Hotel and Spa is a mostly tranquil resort, highly suited to couples on romantic getaways.

      Private and secluded, this south coast gem is worth the journey to its somewhat off the beaten track location. Small yet stunning, the Msambweni Beach House and Private Villas make a great getaway for couples not bothered about being further away from the action. We appreciated Msambweni's casual luxury in a serene and unpretentious setting. You'll have to be content to do nothing though, for there are few on-site leisure facilities and its distance from the bright lights of Diani means you'll most likely stay put.

      An attractive retreat, Kinondo Kwetu is a peaceful accommodation choice popular with fans of simple luxury. A far cry from the large, brash resorts of the Mombasa coast, it certainly offers something a bit different for the holidaymaker. For romantics or families, Kinondo Kwetu caters to both, although some might wonder how honeymooners and families with rowdy children could coexist peacefully in the one place...

      An attractive hotel with an array of facilities, the Kolé Kolé is the superior property in the Baobab Beach Resort portfolio. While its popularity could be due to its lovely infinity pool, we fell in love with the rooms; thoughtfully decorated in a chic, contemporary Swahili style. However, while the accommodation is oh-so suitable for a romantic getaway, be aware that many families who stay at the Baobab next door come and take advantage of the Kolé Kolé kid's facilities, quickly turning it into a hive of activity. Excellent, well-maintained amenities but a tranquil romantic hideaway it is not...

      Minutes from Mombasa Island yet somehow secluded and off the beaten track, Tijara Beach is a hidden gem, lovingly looked after by owner/managers Ian and Larissa Manson Hart. Less a hotel and more a collection of chic beach bungalows, Tijara Beach is a haven of peace and calm. Many beach resorts may make this claim but in Tijara Beach's case it really is appropriate. Proof that good things come in small packages!
