My wife and I visited Kenya Bay hotel over Christmas and New year's period in 2013. After a few trips to South Coast of Mombasa we decided on a change of scenery and planned a trip to the famous North coast. There were a few hotels along the popular stretch of beach known as Bamburi, and after extensive research we found ourselves booking 6 nights at Kenya Bay hotel, which I have to say did not disappoint us in the slightest. As soon as we arrived we knew we had made the right choice, a very warm reception with a lovely welcome drink. My wife and I were very weary after a long journey from the UK and the staff at reception were amazing. They made us feel so happy to be there, escorted us to our room after one of the quickest check-ins I have ever experienced. I would very much recommend the refurbished executive rooms which have amazing views.
Our stay was extremely comfortable and anything we wanted was a phone call to the reception away. The buffet spread was amazing on all days and exceptionally good on New Years eve. When feeling peckish, we found ourselves in the very cool sea-view restaurant Frangipani with great food. The location of the hotel is great, with Il-covo italian restaurant on the left and Yules Water sports and restaurant on the right. If you are a sports enthusiast like I am, be sure to make the daily 5pm Volleyball matches on the Beach. We made so many friends and cannot wait to go back.
The one negative was the amount traffic we found leaving the hotel to get to the airport. Leave well in advance as this popular strip of the coast can get quite busy on the roads.
