The hotel is run poorly, the staff are lovely but are treated appallingly, they obviously don't have any opportunities for training. Leaving the hotel out to the beach means being approached immediately by local men looking for an opportunity or trying to sell you something. We got harassed and followed then threatened when we didn't hand over money when we... More

Damp rooms, cheap soap, Dark blue towels - very off putting, TV never works, just a standard cheap room it was - almost like a lodge. Food was great, entertainment good, the hotel attracted a lot of mixed tourists and hence one would rather be out by the pools and restaurants than in the bogus rooms!

Visited bamburi beach resort a while back and it offered the best price value ratio. Think of it as a comfortable and beautiful place to stay near the beach with near attractions and great connections. If you expect a complete hotel package with food, watersports etc then you will be better of looking for something a bit more expensive. My... More

Room not well maintened; AC very noisy, impossible to sleep; no water in the morning in the bathroom, you have to go to the reception, as there is no phone in the room, and request an immediate maintenance, as you need to shower you and brush you teeth..... This hotel had an award in 2012 by Tripadvisor. We have understood... More

This resort was every bit as beautiful as the photos available on the internet, but the amenities listed were misleading. The "all-inclusive" rate turned out to be only semi-inclusive. Only two alcoholic beverages were available in this package, and inclusive meals were served cafeteria style three time slots a day, like summer camp. It was difficult to find any sort... More

We had a wonderful holiday, the food was excellent (i have a very fussy husband, who was really happy with the food). The rooms were spacious and very... More

A perfect place to stay.The place where you feel just like home.The swimming pool is very well maintained and you get music of your choice while swimming. The food quality is excellent and is served by the staff who are always smiling.
