I put up at Makwetu for a week recently and all I have is good news, a perfect location for business and relaxation at the same time. The place is perfectly clean and the staff very courteous , beautiful grounds and clean swimming pool. We felt very much at home and cant wait to get there again. Mureithi.

I and my family have stayed at Makwetu Resorts in Mombasa twice in the recent past. This is definately "a home away from home". The place in neat with very friendly staff. I liked the available self catering facilities and the fact that one can hire cooks. I beautiful cosy place to say.

A homely and friendly place for those with young families and those who prefer the informality of self catering holidays. The lawn around the swimming pool is a great place to spend a lazy relaxing day and for the avid golfer, there is a golf course a 2 minute drive away that shares a fence with Makwetu!!

It's very unlike a hotel where it feels like there are thousands of people walking in and out. Makwetu was nice, clean, quiet and with a... More

I visited Makwetu and its one of the most unspoilt hotels in Mombasa. Not too crowded, the gardens are wonderful, the pool and the staff very nice. The newly constructed studio apartments are just great. Nice finishing and would recommend anyone going to Mombasa - Kenya to use them. They are self catering but all through when i stayed there,...

The appartments are very clean and the food is nice. You also have your own kitchen if you like to cook for yourself. The staff is very friendly and does... More
