    Competent Staff Cleaning Position: calm corner of bamburi beach and easy for reaching nice places

    The reception proposes an expensive incompetent and unprofessional tour guide, "Chikoh Madzayo", absolutely to avoid.

    the friendly staff, very good security - especially at the gate to the beach; the fish meals (we ordered in the afternoon for the evening meal and it was ready at the pre-agreed time!) The beach in front of the hotel is cleaned every morning at 8am.

    The balconies are very low. Especially on the 5th floor, where the gym is located, it looks scary. Surely this would not comply with Western construction safety standards. The swimming pool is set between two high buildings, with view on the sea. However, the sun cannot really hit the pool which makes it not very welcoming.

    Friendly and polite staff. Feeling welcome at arrival Free van to shopping mall (high quality mall) twice a day Large rooms Gym

    Annoing people at the beach trying to sell things. Not safe to be on the beach or stolling nearby roads after dark.

    The apartment was nicely decorated, very quiet and excellently provisioned in the kitchen. The staff were all fantastic. We were so impressed we stayed on for an extra three days. The free shuttle to the shops was excellent too.

    I like the fact that I can monitor my kids from the balcony of the apartments as the pool is centrally located, also the fact you can move around with a stroller right up to the beach ' and the lift in the lobby make life easy for moms and dads'

    I don't like that they don't have their in house restruant 'and don't have a half board or full board packages, the restraint which is a third party is costly.

    Location is great. Kitchenet had all the necessary utensils. Service was prompt.

    No sign boards on main roads indicating hotel. My two booked studio apartments actually didn't have the same furniture, one had carpet the other did not. Same with door mats.

    I liked the idea of the in-room kitchen, large fridge and the range of TV channels. The pool was nice, the gym was OK, just a little under-equipped. Close proximity to the beach was a bonus. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I will be staying here again when I come to Mombasa next time.

    The WiFi is a little unstable but this can be improved.

    Very well equipped. Very well located.

    Reaction of the staff for solving some technical matters (like AC). (Paid) Transport from/to the airport is not provided.

    Right on the beach, the Suli-Suli restaurant (separate entity) serves great food. Clean hotel and friendly staff. Daily free shuttle to the supermarket is great. Be aware of the beach boys - they may be helpful, but I also heard bad stories about them.

    The hotel website stated that the airport transportation was free - it is not. Also, the extra bed price is different from the website information (wrong both at the hotel's website) and the's website. The management refused to honor the website price. Money was stolen from my room, the management said that they would investigate, but they didn't give me any feedback. The water was full of sea weeds, only the last day of our stay it was possible to swim.

    Everything was great.

    I wish the restaurant/bar felt more apart of the hotel. The couches could be more comfortable.
