They are let down by the fact that they do not offer any fresh juices when the country is over brimming with passion, lime, pineapple, mango etc. they also need to rearrange their dining room. There are hundreds of extremely nice willing and helpful staff dying to serve one, BUt they have self service. I do not go on holiday... More

I stayed here for 5 days while attending a wedding nearby. The staff was amazing, always saying hello and remembering what drink I liked etc. The food was also yummy , lots of tasty curry type dishes and other local specialities. The view is incredible, across Kalifi Creek to the Indian Ocean with cliffs, sparkling blue water and a there... More

This was our sixth trip back to the Mnarani Hotel and was different to our previous experiences. Due to the problems caused by the withdrawal of direct flights to Mombasa the hotel was very quiet, with far fewer residents than previous years. However, the fantastic and amazing staff, who really make the place, were still the same, the food was... More

ex Nilsons resort with great kit and fantastic team of people. Hotel and pool are outstanding too. Highly recommended. The restaurant serves a great buffet and all inclusive seems the way to go. Service is outstanding, although the bar closes around midnight.

Where to start, stayed here for 2 weeks in March 14 and had the most chilled out, amazing holiday ever! First impressions we weren't too sure as it's a very intimate resort and not very modern but to be fair we knew that when booking. It soon became clear that there was something about Mnarani that made this one of... More

This is a family orientated hotel but is a good mix for couples as well. There is plenty to do at the hotel- the pool area is gorgeous and there are free activities everyday at the hotel including visits by local dancers and the reptile man who brought a selection of snakes and lizards- very entertaining. The food was plentiful... More

The staff at this hotel are wonderful, very friendly and always helpful. Activities are planned throughout the day if you're interested in taking part, though most guests during our stay preferred to lounge by the beautiful swimming pool. And the view of the creek the hotel is located on from the pool is awesome! Rooms are fine, pretty standard for... More

We arrived at the Mnarani Club on a Sunday afternoon to a warm welcome. We were shown to a room near the reception for the check-in formalities; and boy are they different. Not your regular check in, this one includes signing indemnity forms with interesting rules and regulations which I believe other reviewers have gone into length about..........yup, they're not...
