Another great experience at the welcoming Nightingale. The Makuti is fully restored and Humphry is back to his very best serving ice cold beers. The Apartments now include AC as standard which was needed in February. Catherine the Owner continues to fuss over all of her guests, This visit she arranged a goat feast for my Fiances birthday. The food... More

Good reception on arrival, the food is just amazing. They organize your transport as its a bit far from the main road. Its self catering so u can cook for yourself if you want to. Their facilities are very updated from the showers to kitchen equipment. If u want to be close to the beach, this is NOT the place... More

The place has been chosed due to its value for money and location (not far away from Mtwapa, i.e. both close to the beach and a town). You can get it easily from Mombasa (take matatu from Digo Road, the price is 40 Shl, it's better to negotiate the price before you seat, especially when you are first time in... More

Keep on returning to the Nightingale. It is a well managed establishment close to Shanzu beach. Spacious and clean rooms backed up by great service and a very secure compound. Humphry serves a great cold beer with a smile. Breakfast are cooked to your personal preferences and the pool is so enticing. Representing great value I will return again and... More

though spacious rooms and clean, very slow hotel service, food is repetitive, no local food taste. bathrooms toiletries needs improvement.....generally we did not like the place at all. far from the main road. advertisement should correspond to the reality on ground. the kitchenette should be supplied with coffee maker. mattress needs upgrading.

The apartments are new, clean and spacious and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Also loved the big, spacious rooms with basic but clean and good quality furniture and amenities. The pool was also really nice. Excellent value for money. The food service was a bit slow when the restaurant was busy, however. On the downside, the location can... More

This is a lovely place. While it is not perfect, for the price I don't think you can do better. The apartments are spare but clean. Most of what you need is there. The restaurant was quite tasty and the variety is excellent. There is a very wonderful pool and sitting area. The staff is superb and went out of... More
