Wish I had read the reviews here on trip advisor before checking into this place, over 5 poor reviews is enough to pass over a place- I should have checked! I was checked in at the beach bar- ridiculous that at that time the reception wasn't open yet, worse still they tried to overcharge me but luckily I had called... More

The hotel ambiance is serene and amazing, the rooms are very nice, the pool is lovely, the location is amazing, a few steps to a mall, the ocean and a park. It was truly pure relaxation at great value

this was the 8 or 9th time I've stayed at the resort, as ever the staff are extremely friendly and nothing seems to be too much trouble. They even remembered my name from previous visits. The rooms are rustically furnished but very comfortable, the resort is right on the beach allowing easy access to walk the sands. Although purely vegetarian... More

Nothing special in bamburi beach. There is nothing except the hotel. The sea is not clean and the beach is not comfortable because of the local guys, every moment they tried to sell something. In general, there is nothing in bamburi or nyali beach, if u want to go mombasa u should choose really really good hotel.

Rooms are ok.. not very lavish but the one issue is of water in the bathrooms . They were salty to the... More

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
