“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

At first we could not believe the offer/ rate for a double room but since we were on holiday we decided to try it out. Our expectations were exceeded! Those were the most friendly staff I have ever met, I felt like they were family. Kipkemboi and Ole Popote were just awesome and really ensured that we had what we wanted.The rooms were very spacoius and very neat. Being in a quiet and serene location it was so ideal for family. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a budget hotel in Bamburi beach area..Its so pocket friendly.. All was excellent.

Best customer service, fantastic facilities. If your looking for a place with most value for money then you've most definitely found it at Kahamas hotel. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay their. The assistants (Ole Mayien and all other Oles) were helpful. First I stayed at Kenya Bay Beach hotel which is right behind Kahamas and next to the beach but after I discovered how awesome kahamas was, I've not changed venue since. I'll definitely come back in August.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are more quieter, less monkey activity

Stayed for more than a week. First room the mosquito net fell down from the ceiling. Big iron frame fell down only fastened with one screw. Moved to an apartment spacious and nice, but only to find out that kitchen had nothing but hot water. Moved to the next apt. This one only had cold water in the kitchen. The place is kept very clean. Good place to stay. Very friendly staff, especially Eunice in the breakfast area/restaurant. The rest of the staff is also very nice. The food in the restaurant is not too great. The music from the restaurant disturbed a lot of sleep.

What a beautiful hotel.Clean, modern, open and airy yet exotic. Beautifully clean and well maintained swimming pool with an amazing Kenyan swimming instructor who can coax the most frightened to be swimmers into the water and teach the most resistant learn ears to swim!

Room Tip: They are all good !!
