Stayed here on business, each room is unique and has different layouts, furnishings, very spacious, clean and friendly staff. Armed guards patrol inside and out, the pools are superb and a welcome break in the humidity, Beautiful location. Deep sea fishing trips are also available weekends and most days, a must do if you stay. Caught some pretty large fish,... More

This hotel has a great location and really nice clean and comfortable rooms. I loved the seafood in the restaurant next door. The pool is really great and the service polite. I would certainly recommend to other people visiting the coast in kenya.

Ok, it's not 5 star, but it is lovely. Beautiful architecture and the apartments are massive. The view from the apartments us beautiful (I understand they all have a view of the harbour). Very reasonably priced mini (maxi) bar. Yes, twice the price of the supermarket but not ten times the price. Expensive but lovely gift shop with some truly... More

We had an early check in (8am) and check out (5am) and the receptionist was very warm and welcoming. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment that was tastefully furnished. The staff at the bar and the restaurant went out of their way to meet our requests. The Manager made a personal visit to ensure that our stay was satisfactory

We have stayed, dined and been entertained on the Dhow many times and, up until recently, received impeccable service. This year however, the quality of that service seems to have deteriorated. There is an impression of many staff changes resulting in a significant loss of experience and uneven quality. The rooms in the Village are looking tired and the standard... More

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
