Stayed at Kinondo Poa over Easter. Wonderful place, super friendly staff, best seafood ever, very clean pool and service. Well maintained garden, only 2 min walk to the private beach, no beach boys only friendly fisherman and children. We will come back.

I had a wonderful weekend at Kinondo Poa. The service & rooms were wonderful. I also liked the beach...it was not clustered with people or dirt. The food was delicious. The pool was also available to us 24/7 and i had the most wonderful morning swims.

And same with the dinner. Hotel owner was very hospitable and chreerful. The rooms were really clean and cleaned regularly. Pool was avabable to us 24/7... More

What a find! Smiling faces greet you on arrival and immediately you can feel your stress levels melting away. A small, tranquil group of pretty rondelles surrounding the pool, set within well maintained colouful gardens. Loved the fact that meals can be taken either in the outdoor lounge area or on your own private verandah, always served with a smile.... More

My bf and i had a fantastic time at this lovely beach resort between 31st Dec and 3rd Jan 2015. With direct access to the beach, the views are amazing. The hotel has very few cottages and therefore, though all rooms were occupied during this period, it was still not crowded offering the much needed privacy for people who just... More

We were a group of seven, 3 couples and a brother. We stayed for 3 nights and the service was great, very friendly staff. The rooms were basic yet comfortable. The accommodation needs some tlc, particularly the bathroom but the pool, beach access and relaxed atmosphere made up for this. Small problems were quickly sorted out by Wilfred and his... More

Me and my girl have been in paradise for a week. The place as the rest of the south kenyan coast is wonderful,but stay here was an extra value. The "Holyday retreat" is intimate and cozy,surrounded by a luxuriant tropical nature,and only with 8 rooms gives you a personal exclusive feeling.... As customized is the service.....total free from haste....you can... More

We booked some clients on two different occasions last year and their response was very positive. One couple who were there for their honeymoon said the services were exemplary good and that it exceeded their expectations. We therefore cannot hesitate recommending more clients to this facility.

Kinondo Poa is an amazing value for money: a beautiful landscaped garden with nice cottages a few meters from the beach. With its price, it is a steal: Kinondo Kwetu is literally next door, and while it is markedly more upscale, it costs almost 4 times more and opens up on the same beach. The beach is lovely and deserted,... More

we stayed five nights in November. Ultimate peace and quiet, located 100ms from the beach a walk down the path you will see colobus and vervet mokeys in the trees above to a beach with only local fisherman and the occasional tourist or villa owner about 1 km of untouched beach( no beach boys). Loungers are brought to the beach... More
