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

Stayed at the Tamarind on a business trip to Mombasa and truly enjoyed the peace, first class service and very friendly helpful staff. The apartments are very well furnished, with fantastic views of the ocean. The food service from the restaurants is very good. I highly recommend!

We have been staying at the Tamarind for the last 4 years before flying back to the UK as it is close to the airport and not too far from the town, just across the river. The apartments are well appointed and good for families, large and small. The whole hotel harks back to colonial times and so a complete... More

It started off on the wrong footing which saw us being given a rather dark and musty apartment whose owner had actually closed the wardrobes of one of the rooms! But the staff was very helpful and promptly moved us to a better apartment the next morning. The second apartment was spacious, airy and very well furnished. The only issue... More

I stayed two nights in the apartments unfortunately on business :-( Good food, nice pool and Gym. The rooms are well furnished with nice solid stuff and big! Only a short walk to the supermarket and cinema I did not have time for site seeing but it is in a good location

there isn't that much to do in Mombasa but this hotel is truly five star. The rooms are luxurious, large and comfortable. The fish restaurant is superb. The swimming pools are great. Watch out for the cheeky monkeys that will want to get into your room if you have any food (keep the doors and windows locked!)

I stayed in one of the apartment/rooms with a friend and the room was beautiful. It was spacious with ocean view, had a very large sitting room with kitchenette and two bedrooms. Easy walk out to the terrace and pools. Check in process was easy. The hotel is very tastefully decorated and the restaurant has excellent food. A great place... More
