We were walking along the Kilifi beach and decided to have a drink at the hotel beach bar for a bit. It had a really nice view. The bar wasn't well stocked for some reason. Ordered food which took quite a while and came when it was cold and the portion was really small. They had a nice pool however.

We called here for lunch without a reservation. The staff were vague about the available facilities. We eventually found the restaurant which was serving a buffet lunch. The food was a reasonable but unappealing mix of roast lamb, fish and overlooked vegetables. I would not recommend this hotel for a meal.

We went for lunch, it was a buffet. Very average. Maybe because not much Buisness but poor! The staff were very slow, the Drinks waiter was extremely slow, and the CockTail (Dawa), so was not good! VERY Over priced!

We travelled to kilifi for a relaxing day trip and run into this great facility. Although we didn't get to spend a night, the place was excellent. I have to mention the resort was deserted because of the negative security issues affecting all the kenyan coastal areas. We all enjoyed the food, pool, exquisite beach and friendly staff. Will definitely... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Kilifi Bay. We enjoyed a great view of the beach and the sunrise over the ocean each morning. The staff was wonderful. The pool was very clean and big. Nice, clean beachfront. Excellent food. Kilifi is also a very nice town to explore.

Do not go to this Hotel Off Season!!!! The staff might be on-site but the services aren't. One pool was dirty, only 1 bar open at any time and the beach bar completely closed and becoming derelict. The rooms are small and cluttered and furniture showing its age. The Wi-fi was not hotel wide and the TV channels limited to... More

Kilifi bay regrets the inconveniences experienced by Mr Trevor Kilifi bay has two swimming pools, the smaller pool was indeed under treatment during your stay and it has been restored and it’s in order. The deck at the beach was under repair and hence the bar was closed during that time. The two other bars (pool bar and lobby bar)... More

Sea view cottage. Very calm environment. Excellent beach. No locals on the beach!!! White and clean sand!! Nice bar on the beach. But all inclusive food was not good at all. Lots of Eastern European. No wifi in the rooms.

We stayed for 5 nights in March. the rooms we had were amazing, beach front, just looknig over the Indian Ocean. Paradise. It was low season and I think there were only another couple of people staying. It was annoying because during the day the pool was busy, I am not sure if they let people in paying a daily... More
