Spent 4 days with The Missus at Tamarind Village. Stayed at a well - presented 1 - bedroom apartment. Great place. A few areas of improvement as follows: Reception staff should offer to show all areas of the village. It wasn't until our last day that we discovered there was a bar with awesome sea views & a casino! Effort... More

The apartments are great, tastefully furnished spacious and with great views of the oceanfront. The balconies are huge you can even have a house party. The kitchen has a mini bar with all drinks. The harbour restaurant has a great relaxing setting with very cool background music. I was a bit disappointed over lunch, it took us 30 min to... More

The Tamarind is a very lovely place to stay, quiet and very private. The rooms are big and beautifully decorated with a Swahili theme. I stayed there twice and enjoyed my stay both times. Each room is individually decorated so each time you stay there, the experience will be different. The breakfast area is very beautiful overlooking the ocean. The... More

I used this hotel on business. The rooms are very large. The master bathroom was bigger then some of the apartments I lived in when I was a student. It felt very safe. The view from the terrace was very beautiful. The outside breakfast place had a good view, a mild breeze and good food. it is one of those... More

The Tamarind was very nice, with large private apartments overlooking the river across to the island of Mombasa. A great balcony with chairs and table is a nice place to relax after coming back from work. Room service from the Harbour restaurant is available to eat in your room. The restaurant itself is very good, overlooking the water. Staff are... More

This is a great place to stay when on business in Mombasa. It is situated just off the island on the creek overlooking Old Town. It never took me more than 30 minutes even during peak times to get to and from the office. The apartments are very spacious with a great view and nice and quiet. I could sit... More

Great setting with a remarkable view of the island of Mombasa across to Fort Jesus. Large apartments, some of which are a bit tired. Stayed there several times so have tried many different rooms. Food in Tamarind Restaurant very good. Food by the pool also good, but can take a while. Breakfast by the pool overlooking the creek is a... More

Overall good. Reception is ok. Probably both. Apartment is nice, big, nice patio but needs some renovation. Dinner in the seafood restaurant is a must. Very nice food and service. Be prepared for a real humid weather.

The apartments are quite large and the views from the extremely large balcony are stunning. When I stayed there the place was very quiet so certainly no complaints there. The only negative point is the air conditioners in the rooms: they really need some maintenance (the one in the living room was either on or off - no temperature setting)... More

One of the most convenient places to stay while on business in Mombasa. The location is excellent with easy access to the city centre as well as to the north side of the town where most conventions are held. The food is a little pricey but the location means you can cook or dine out, with a shopping centre and... More
