Used to love this hotel back around 2011 but not so much now. Most amenities out of order. Understandable in financial dark times for Coastal tourism but could do better. When at It's best is an absolute world beater.

The hotel is set at a beautiful location right next to the ocean in the outskirts of Mombasa. The hotel has a variety of big swimming pools overlooking the ocean with many trees in the swimming area, but that's just about it. Everything else in the hotel is run down. From the rooms and the entire compound the cleanliness and... More

This hotel is beautiful and located in a nice beach. However, over the years it seems the hotel has been run down and needs a major facelift in terms of infrastructure and management. The reservation process is a tedious and you will be lucky to find allocated the room you had reserved despite numerous phone calls. The food menu is... More

I have been to this hotel more than 6 times and I just cannot get enough of it. Good setting. Love that they have a variety of pools to choose from. Although renovations/ Construction of the apartments is ongoing the hotel is clean and not noisy. Love the food though they can improve on the variety of foods

We stayed at the Sun and Sand a few years ago now and had a really nice time. Upon arrival we were " upgraded" to a superior room with ocean views which was very nice ( had dual sinks too which helped) . The hotel pool areas were very nice however the only downfall was the beach. The reef seemed... More

My experience started with booking. My online reservation was not registered and I had to make several calls; first to book; then to reconfirm the booking after depositing the funds in their account. The front office/ reception desk were however quite helpful. When we arrived, our initial rooms ( deluxe option) were a disaster. We were changed to an even... More
