I hadn’t paid a lot of money to book this hotel so I wasn’t sure what I was going to find when I arrived. I was handled efficiently at the reception on arrival and was given a spacious room at the far end of the building which overlooked the pool area and had wonderful sea views. In fact, most rooms...

This trip was a family one as my kids were participating in a chess tournament at Mombasa. Hence, we needed all the peace & tranquility that we could get to enable my kids to wake up fresh and ready for the challenge ahead.

We had a wonderful time with a team of colleagues who used the hotel and conference facilities. Staff was very friendly and welcoming, the rooms were good quality. Any problem was solved within no time and the view of the ocean was magnificant. Hotel manager also happened to be good professional singer. In short, a place to return to! Godelieve

I stayed at Kenya Bay twice, and was impressed both times. The staff were so friendly and wore permanent smiles. The location was ideal - with coconut trees and a white sandy beach. Snorkeling within Mombasa Marine Park is very close to the hotel - only 5 - 10 minutes by boat. It's also just a few meters from the... More

Recommended by a friend it did not disappoint. Very reasonably priced. Staff mostly made this place memorable, they all smiled and called my daughter and I by name. We got free upgrades to the superior room and late checkouts which helped with the little one and we squeezed in more time for recommended boat ride where we went sailing. Nice... More
