Bathroom is small but all what you need is there, only the water coming for the showers is very low and mostly almost cold. But as Mombasa is hot, we didn't mind... More

I sincerely thank the management and staff of Kenya Bay Beach Hotel for a most hospitable and memorable stay. In the past, my family and I had patronized several other hotels in Mombasa but Kenya Bay was exceptional. Although we had a 7-month old baby with us, our every bit of need was attended to. It just felt like home... More
