From the time we arrived to the time we left we were treated like royalty. All the staff were brilliant, the Guards ensured you were safe, the Chefs catered for your needs whether you were a vegetarian or a non veg, pool/bar staff always served with a smile and the cleaning staff ensured the room was spotless everyday.

We visited end of May this year. After a long drive from Nairobi, we got at the hotel just around 4 pm. Unfortunately the service at the reception was very poor. There was no welcome drink or cold towel which is the norm at other hotels. We had to wait a while for our room to be allocated. The room... More

Two couples went there together, and paid the same rates. One got a deluxe room, the other got a small room. The reception staff were very rude and refused to change the 2nd room - though they had other rooms available. Another friend also had to fight for rooms together, or they put the group in different corners of the... More

Went with family for a short holiday. Knew we were in for something special from the way we were treated at the reception. We arrived at kole kole after being let down at another establishment just down the road. The hotel itself is setup in lush gardens with possibly the best infinity pool I've seen in a while. Though the... More

words cannot describe the fun i had with my family. The best part is having facilities of 3 hotels at your disposal. With a true all inclusive deal where you can eat and drink all day all you want, then partake in as many games and activities as you wish for free. Loved the evening shows and friendly people. The...

We have stayed here several times now and have recomended to others who have also enjoyed their stay. We have stayed in all 3 within this site- and the great thing is whichever one your staying at you still have the choice of eating and swimming at any of the sites. As we have children we found kole kole side... More

We spent 4 nights at Kole Kole. The resort is lovely, and the fact that you can choose to swim in any of the three pools and eat at any restaurant is great. The food choice was a little boring and repetitive, but the taste was great. There were lots of activities in the day and the performances at the... More

Love Mombasa and first time I'd been to Kole Kole. Had a lovely stay and the staff were so attentive. Great beach, pools and animation programmes and decent food. The rooms were absolutely huge! Perfect for Mombasa with good a/c and the lovely touch of fruit on arrival. They also quickly arranged for a mosquito net which was great. The... More
