        Rooms in poor condition, plaster flaking due to damp, mould in bathroom, no warm water ever. Grounds also looked very tired & in need of improvements. I considered the hotel overpriced & overated. Should be at best 2 star. Food was OK but not special in any way.

      • Group of friends

        The rooms were filthy with old blood stains on one of our pillows, mould on the walls, air conditioning unit broken, plug sockets falling off the walls. The whole Hotel is very dated and tired. The staff were rude on arrival and the hotel is further from Mombasa Airport than stated on the website its 25KM's from the airport. In general I would recommend staying somewhere else as it is far too expensive and stayed in better kept hostels than here.

        The opportunity to go for long walks on the beach, and to be able to purchase my curios before going home

        All the flies on the food in the dining room and the cockroach in our room. An air conditioner in the dining room would helf for the flies and also relieve the heat in there

        We booked on line. However when we got there we were told that our names were not on the list. We were a group of seven individuals. The rooms were lousy, filled with mosquitoes and we were not given the rooms that we reserved. The receptionist was very rude. Instead of us spending a week there, we packed our bags and left the following day.

        Lousy Receptionist..Poor services. Bathooms not working. Too many mosquitoes,

        The atmosphere was relaxing, the staff attentive but not overly so the food very good: in general I had a good relaxing mini-break.

      • Family with children

        Nice location and easy to reach. Good entertainment in evening. Relaxed atmosphere and nothing too expensive. Not too big so even though the pool is standard size it is not crowded.

        Fairly mediocre hotel looking like it could do with a facelift: damaged pool table with dangerously damaged fan overhead. Faded chairs, uniforms and curtains, for example. The dining room has no fan so too many flies at breakfast time. Service a bit slow. Nothing too bad but nothing too good either.

        There were very accommodating and very hospitable. We stayed at the cheapest place that looked decent to us and we were pleasantly surprised with Kenya Bay. For the price, we were thrilled with the service, cleanliness, location, and food! I couldn't have been happier.

        Very Friendly staff. Good location. Easy access to the indian Ocean.

        The hotel needs to be renovated. It tends to look like an abandoned property. Dust inside the rooms. Old and bad smelling fridges. The food is not good had to eat outside. Very old serve wares. To my understanding the hotel needs a new management.

        Location and seaside location was great. Hotel staff were helpful and friendly and management fair.

        Other hotel guests were rude and unfriendly. I had problems with air conditioning unit in first room and it could not be repaired and I had to move. They then moved me into a second room with a malfunctioning air conditioning unit again and I had to move for a second time. Finally the third room was a good one, but I was most unpleased with having to move twice during my stay.

        The location is excellent and staff is very friendly, good seafood, nice pool.

        The housekeeping has to improve, a/c not working, no remote control for tv but they upgraded my room after I advised of the defficiencies.

        comfortable rooms with large beds and air conditioning. the balcolny was nice as well.

        i did not think the hotel reception handled the fact we got mugged very well. they should have called the police. the security guards, however, were excellent in terms of handling the situation.

        the superior rooms are nice and the environment too

        the standard rooms are not spacious

      • Single

        My room was very comfortable and the poolside and beach access was very accommodating. Booking through the internet was very easy, and when I made schedule changes the flexibility of the booking and hotel were very helpful.

        My shower in the evening after I arrived was only slightly warm, I was desiring a hot shower at that time. Check out at 10:00 am was earlier than I wanted to leave, and the desk clerk said there was no flexibility for a later check out. These are the only negative comments that I would make, and I view them as very minimal concerns.

        Its a rip off finacially. Is dirty and poorly maintained. Staff badly trained. Food disgusting (one of has food poisoning and needed medical treatment). The noise from next door club is unacceptable and goes on until 4.30 am daily. They would be arrested in Europe.

      • Couple
        7.0

        It's actually a very nice hotel, with nice facilities and staff. Until you dare to utter a complaint.

        It is located next to a very noisy club, Il Covo. The first two nights the noise levels were bearable, but the third night was out of control, as they had put large speakers on the beach. When I went to the reception to see if anything could be done, the receptionist got annoyed and said the manager's asleep (unlike me and my wife) and we'd have to deal with it in the morning. Next morning the manager blamed me for not having brought this to her attention earlier and lied that no-one had complained about the noise before (I had actually talked to some other guests who had too). Nice hotel, unhelpful staff. It's a pity.
