I was last here in Sept 2014, and since then, things have gone down hill... Let's start with the good points: The staff are very helpful and eager to help. The location of the hotel is prime - a few minutes walk from Nakumatt Supermarket and a nice spot right on the beach. Value for money - but I guess... More

Be very careful booking this hotel. I stayed a week (seemed like a month) at the end of May 2015. The hotel itself is fine. The management and ownership are an entirely different matter. The power went out on day 3. Then the generator broke and stayed broken for the rest of my time there. No air conditioning, no running... More

threesixtyfive, Manager at Kaskazi Beach Hotel, responded to this review

We would like to thank Mr. Don from Dallas, Texas for the report about his stay with us. It is unfortunate that the main power supply in the entire region ceased and the backup generator cold not put up efficiently with the occupancy of the hotel during that time. It is not true that there were only ten clients inhouse... More

This is a good value for money hotel especially for families. Lots of activities going on. Different bistros, bars and lounges. Good variety of food for all tastes. Nice architecture which fits nicely into the surrounding area even though the complex has over 100 rooms. The hotel is not new so the rooms are not of type "sterile new chique"... More

We stayed here for work during the low season, and coupled with the (unnecessary) travel advisory warnings, bookings at this hotel, and many others, were incredibly low. There were few staff and about 18 people for dinner service. However, despite all of this, the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The decor could do with a face-lift, especially after such...

The hotel is huge, they have a clean pool, their nightly events are so-so, but that's about it. It needs a major renovation, especially considering that it is right next to an absolutely amazing hotel. Anyways, I still have high hopes for this place!

This hotel offers an amazing opportunity to have fun in a perfect exotic location. Everything was perfect: sea, landscape, food, beverages. Truly an all inclusive experience! Two weeks of pure bliss in a tropical paradise. I will come back as soon as possible.

The lobby looks impressive and promising, but once you reach your room one cannnot avoid this feeling of frustration. The hotel should have been renovated long time ago. Our room was on the ground floor with a "view" to the bushes and the restaurant. Has a small balkony, though, which is a plus. Breakfast is monotonous and dull and we... More
