They have a good number of pools which are clean and well kept. Their members of staff are great👍 everything in our rooms worked perfectly. The beach is a big plus. I would... More

I have stayed there a week in April'15. Hotel have variety of pools where you can enjoy. Since I was looking for a calm place, I used the one on far left which is usually very calm to relax. Food is good. Good sea food restaurant they have. Plus you can catch your own fish if your are lucky enough.... More

We travelled three of us some time in April this year and had an fabulous time. While checking in we got upgraded to ocean facing rooms which was on a higher floor and that kickstarted our amazing holiday. We never had a dull moment throughout the trip. Spent almost an entire day in one of the many pools they have... More

As a frequent traveller for business to Mombasa's north beach coast - my favorite hotel which I have been frequenting for more than 20 years is Sarova's WhiteSands Beach Resort and Spa. Set on Bamburi beach, around 25 minutes drive from Moi International Airport, this hotel has maintained its five star status through meticulous upkeep which means that the traveller... More

Lovely hotel, good sized rooms, had a view of the beach. Very helpful staff cannot do enough for you especially the staff around the small pool. Rooms kept really clean; unfortunately we fell ill whilst there from the malaria medication but the guy that cleaned our room was so lovely in bringing us some bottled water and fruit to help...

The entertainment is to die for. The bands, especially the blind people's band (I forget their name but they were all blind) are awesome. The food was kept interesting with themes changing everyday. Sea view rooms are the best, partial view of the pool with a full sea view, great way to wake up. The staff were friendly and the... More

Nice place which is not very far from the town and also close to Mamba Village where one can visit the crocodiles. The resort has some beach sports and for those who want to stay awake late at night they can go to the beach Bar that also serves soft drinks. The set up is inviting but if one stays... More
