“This is just the place place!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Kaskazi Beach hotel's hospitality starts right from the reception. Beautiful ladies with very bright smiles which makes you feel at home and indeed in safe hands. The staff are just so friendly. They have this smile on their faces all the way through. Very nice.

Th rooms are just amazing. well kept beds, nice view of the ocean, beautiful environment spoting some Columbus monkeys. The food is very delicious. My favorite soup was the lamb soup!

Both day & Night entertainment is fabulous. I enjoyed the water activities like water polo.

I would surely like to visit Kaskazi Beach Hotel again and again. I would also recommend it.

Asante kaskazi for a beautiful time that I will never forget.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms are the coolest

Booked at last minute, the stay was a nightmare, no telephones were available in the room to call the reception, when requested to have the issue looked at the response was that it was an old problem. Second day of my trip, the tv went off and again I reported it and after 5 hours had someone tell me from the reception that it was an problem with the whole floor of the hotel and they could only fix it next day sometime. The food was average, the service at the restaurants and bar very slow, waiters were rude, and I felt actually that I was on a boat without s captain. On the positive note, the reservations staff were good and polite, fast in answering all messages and emails. The beach is rocky, and not private. I wont be booking here again anytime soon.

The worst possible experience workers are useless management is not any good .it is a shame to the Kenya tourist industry. Entertainment is bogus. Breakfast is skimpy at best.
We moved out after the first night
The bathroom had salty water
Hot and cold wired the wrong way around

It was our third stay in Kaskazibeach and last year I wrote an enthusiastic advise in french on tripadvisor. This time I write in english in order to be understood by more poeple.
We still love the lovely gardens and the particular charme of this hotel, even if the rooms are dated and the beach not the best in front of the hotel. You have to walk a little bit and then you will find a nice sandy beach to swim.
What changed a lot since our last stay in 2012 and even more in 2011 was the choice of food which was great before and now sometimes really poor. Perhaps the reason was the few guests staying in the hotel or the new management. The food is still good, but little choice.
The evening undertainement is also changed. Before, there were good shows, acrobats, now during our two weeks stay twice massai dansers and the other evenings just discomusic.
But what did not change is the exceptionnel kindness of the staff we miss already and who made us feeling like at home. Thanks to all of them.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to Kaskazi Beach Hotel. Kaskazi Beach Hotel is a Four Star beach resort conveniently located in Kenya’s world famous South Coast on the Diani Beach line, and only a short walking distance from the beach area shopping centre, restaurants, and banks. The resort has been turning moments into memories for our guests for over 18 years. The resort's magnificent architecture (modeled after 5th century Sunni Arab palaces), coupled with the ingenious use of the landscape to create cascading ocean view terraces surrounded by hanging gardens makes it a one of a kind resort in all of the East African coast line. THE RESORT EXPERIENCE: Kaskazi Beach Hotel provides unparalleled options and unique experiences to our guests, from on foot beach tours exploring surrounding beaches and venues, to onsite resort experiences including three restaurants, three bars and lounges, all day long sports and activities provided by our entertainment team, nightly entertainment, a kid's club, and so much more. Other Activities: For sightseers and adventurers alike, guests will have ample "must do" activities such as swimming with wild dolphins at our neighbouring Wasini Island, visiting the ancient port city of Mombasa (Old Town) where one is taken back to a time long lost as the charming city retells its history through its ancient buildings, tiny streets laden with colourful shop fronts and restaurants, and of course, the famous remains of Fort Jesus. For those who want to explore the Diani Beach night life, take one of our resort’s taxi cabs to the famous Ali Barbour and The Forty Thieves beach bar and dance club located only a five minute drive from the resort. There you can dance under the stars and directly on the white sands of Diani Beach. Why choose this resort: The fact that over 50% of our guests are repeat guests who have come to Kaskazi Beach Hotel two to three times a year for over 18 years says a great deal about us. Otherwise, our great and all too caring staff who are always eager to assist you, our excellent cuisine (rated the best in the South Coast by Europe’s largest Travel Agency, TUI), our flexibility in Meal Plans (All-Inclusive or Half-Board), our extremely reasonable rates, and our convenient location, will ensure that you get everything and more than you expect. ... more   less
