Like most ''old'' hotels, something's always ''amiss''... Walk into the lobby and it feels as though you have walked right into a Vegas hotel in 1935... Poorly lit, out dated furniture, huge solid hardwood walk in counter as a front office, the in-house phone was added into the technology archives in 1985, but it is still in use here... So... More

We visited the place in June 2012. It was the very beginning of the season. A bit chilly as for what I had been expecting. Service very polite. No hanging around us for ages just to get a tip. Clean beach, but public so some pestering there and then for products from the locals. Bought Safari from them though. Paid... More

After an arduous flight from Kuwait via Dubai and Nairobi the Bamburi was a veritable oasis of calm. Despite certain reservations about warnings re travel to Kenya my stubbornness prevailed and the trip was booked. Previous experience has taught me that bad things tend to occur in the "safest" of places. Upon arrival I was greeted by the beautifully lyrical... More

I was recommended by a friend in Kenia and I with my husband gave a trial and all our expectations were fulfilled. The service was best so far! It was a time everyone fear to go to Africa but we think again and just risked and for sure nothing bad happen. The security at the hotel and the environment there... More

My boyfriend and i went there for 3 nights. They had a great deal for all inclusive. The hotel is a tad bit old, but what they lack in fancy frills and modern-ness, they make up for in hospitality and down right coastarian charm. Everyone was great to us from the front desk lady that allowed us to check out... More
