    "My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time staying at Manfridays! Its simply an amazing, unique place. The rooms and grounds are lovely, the service is excellent, the food is delicious, and Papu and Sonya are great hosts. I cant say enough good things about this place! There are lots of options for things to do around from swimming to walks on a serene beach to visiting nearby Gede to lounging in one of the many wonderful spots at Manfridays! We cant wait to go back!."

    "I stayed for four nights at Manfridays towards the end of August 2013, and just loved it. The staff were all helpful and courteous, and the rooms are beautiful, each one with its own unique and lovely natural driftwood, shells and flotsam dcor . The hotel has a sense of abundance of space with spread out houses and plenty of inviting casual chill spots so that you can choose to socialise or withdraw as you please or join others at the outside bar in the evening and enjoy Manfridays deliciously limy sundowner dawas. We liked swimming and paddle ski-ing in the bay (once wed waded through the seaweed), lazing in the hammocks and swing beds, and walking up and down the beach at low tide extensive wave erosion of the coral and rocks has created a surreal landscape.Its not a budget destination - I don't usually spend as much on accommodation, but it was definitely worth it for the perfectly secluded relaxation. Oh, and the food was absolutely delicious! Thank you Sonja and Papu."

    " ManFriday's is an amazing place to get away from it all. Located away from the crowds, it has beachfront access to lovely white sand that is rarely visited by tourists. The suite-style accomodations are really lovely, open to the tradewinds and wonderfully appointed - ours had a direct view of the ocean and private seating areas where we enjoyed our full breakfast delivered each day. Sonja and Papu provide fun hospitality, starting off with a ceremonial just picked coconut drink, arranging activities for us including snorkeling out to the Coral Gardens reef, a boat trip around Mida Creek, a drum and dancing show by the local tribe (fantastic!) and even a yoga class. No TV (yay), long walks exploring the tidal rock pools, total relaxation. We ate the majority of our meals at ManFriday's and each one was a culinary delight, many cooked over a hibachi and featuring local delicacies. One has to realize that the beach in this part of Kenya is remote, power is solar and can be intermittent but who cares, the geckos and millipedes are friendly, and showers are refreshingly at room temperature. Also, for those security-minded like us, we felt very well cared for and protected. Thank you Sonja and Papu for creating this really special place in paradise."

    "A super special place. It is in a gorgeous spot - a fair drive away from the main road and near no other hotels - so secluded and completely untouristy. You have the lovely beaches to yourself (except for a few local kids and fishermen), and the sky at night is stunning. What Sonja and Papu have built is even more special though, I thought. They have used local materials (lots of driftwood, coral and shells, and beautiful sun-bleached (or so it looks!) stone) to make gorgeous places to stay. They are unique (all unexpected nooks and crannies) but very recognisable as inspired by Swahili architecture. And luxurious! And we found the hospitality incredible. Everyone is absolutely determined that you will get the most out of your stay. We went at the start of rainy season and so were the only people there, so Sonja and Papu upgraded us to their best property (with our own small pool), and gave us heaps of free drinks. They also got a local group of drummers in to entertain us, just because they thought it was the sort of thing we might enjoy (which we did). The staff are absolutely lovely and take great care in their work - we were completely pampered. And Sonja clearly loves chatting with you about what you want to eat - she throws out lots of options, having already asked you for likes and dislikes before you arrive, and everything we ate was yummy. And so much! I put on 5 pounds in 4 days! (though clearly you don't have to eat as much as I did!). All in all, fabulous - naturally and handcraftedly beautiful place, run and staffed by people thoroughly dedicated to ensuring you enjoy yourself."

    "I am fairly new to TripAdvisor and so pleased to find this entry for ManFridays at Mida Cove. My daughter and I stayed there for Christmas, when the family had overflowed at the beach house and Grandma needed a real bed! We each had a room overlooking the cove, very private. Four poster bed with mosquito gauze, large open window spaces for the breezes to flow through and each our own bathroom. Lulled to sleep by the lapping tide just 15 ft away. Exquisite view along the beach (for the most part, deserted) and out to sea. The weather was hot but we had our own sitting area under a thatch canopy, where an early morning tray of tea arrived and a gazebo on the coral point for sumptuous breakfast with a lot of fresh local fruits, anything we wanted cooked and wonderful coffee. It was sheer heaven.I didn't meet Papu but Sonja was an attentive hostess and even arranged to have special wooden steps built so that Grandma could get down onto the beach easily. She provided us with a magnificent Christmas Eve dinner for our whole family of eight, under the stars by the pool, along with British Christmas crackers. The unspoilt solitude of the place was so rare yet there is plenty to do. Children will love it. ManFridays is unique and wonderful. Busy or lazy, its your choice."

    "My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at Manfridays for the December/January period this year.It was a wonderful experience and Sonja made us feel welcome long before we even arrived. Our plane had been delayed but she kept the communication going by email and phone until we arrived the following day after the long bumpy drive from Mombasa. Then, once we arrived, the welcome drink, the view and the accomodation was absolutely fabulous. I couldn't believe that she and her partner Papu had created such a paradise. The open plan rooms with fantastic views of the sea and natural furnishings- using materials readily available made it all both beautiful and unique.The staff were friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble. Sonja even lent me her laptop so I could correspond with my son overseas. There was always something laid on to keep us entertained such as local dancing. The evenings spent relaxing at the bar chatting to our hosts and other visitors was a wonderful way to relax after a day spent looking for rare and fascinating animals and birds in the nearby Arabuko Sokoke forest.The hosts were friendly and attentive and they made us feel at home ( if home was only half as beautiful!!) I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Manfridays and we are hoping to be able to visit again soon."
