In the huge bar there is live music Fridays and Sundays. Its a nice vibe. Fridays is best. A lot of cool (adult) locals, probably down from Mombasa. Food is ok not fantastic. Drink prices are a little above average but the entertainment is worth it. The hotel is very good and reliable.

Spent one night in late October 2014 with my spouse. It has very good rooms, great ambience and is fairly priced for the amenities available in the room. It also has excellent customer service! The pool is lovely and location ideal with proximity to shopping malls and entertainment spots!

The room are good and clean, the pool-site is pleasant.the restaurant food is... More

I have stayed at Kahama on three occasions and each time I have been satisfied with the experience. The swimming pool is great. The rooms are good, clean and comfy. The staff are okay but not very friendly if the guest is not a mzungu.
