I have stayed at the Kole Kole 4 times in the last year and would go back again. The hotel is set upon a huge area on the the pristine beaches of Ukunda. What I love about this hotel is that it offers loads of activities for kids and adults alike. The resort is an amalgamation of three hotels (Kole... More

Wonderful ambience, friendly staff...many staff went out of their way to help. Just beware the beach boys and try to ignore. Food was amazing and plentiful. The bar staff never smile, but are helpful. Asante sana (thank you, very much) and karibu (welcome) are used in abundance. :-)

Having been to numerous resorts in Mombasa, this is one of the best. Variety and quality of food, room size and comfort was excellent. Staff went that extra mile to make you feel special The entertainment team were amazing - thank you for kick starting our exercise routine. See you next year Kole Kole.

I think it may be best to start as the holiday started as there is alot to cram in. After a long 9 hour flight in Premium, which was not worth the money on a standard aircraft but definately worth it on the Dreamliner which we had on the way back, we arrived at around 9am in stifling heat, it...

Very clean and comfortable hotel. I was blown away with the wonderful service and I had one of the best holidays of my life here. The beach is stunning but you do get very pestered so we gave up and stayed by the pool.

This is a good hotel, very child friendly apart from the scary monkies! We had a good time and I can recommend this place for all. The service, the pool, the food, the accommodation, the beach was all good, the animation team was excellent! Overall a fabulous holiday.
