The rooms were beautiful, and comfortable. Each evening a small chocolate and cookie was brought to the room. The meals were great with a wide array of options, staff were very courteous and friendly. I loved the fact that their uniforms were the same from their shoes to the jeans and the T-shirts carried the departments each staff worked with. There was airport shuttle availability which was helpful especially for first-time visitors to Nairobi. The proximity to the museum, Carnivore and other places of interest was helpful.

Nairobi Region, Kenya1 contribution
Our stay was fantastic. With the kids enjoying unlimited swimming sessions on all four days that we stayed there. Staff were so welcoming and friendly. We were hugely impressed by the services of Everlyn, Florence and Lucy at the restaurant. Not forgetting James in keeping our room spectacularly clean. Mr. Benson kept an eye on us as if were a family, making sure we were attended to all the time. My son's birthday was meticulously planned and prepared. Thanks to Florence. Everlyn organized the birthday dance that really excited my boy. Needles to say, food was everything. From potions to varieties, above all delicious. My son recommended that we bring him back for his eleventh birthday. We agreed. I would recommend the place for visiting families. You won't regret.

This was our second visit here. It’s such a useful location due to its proximity to Wilson airport and also to Nairobi NP. The staff were friendly and helpful and check in was quick. We were upgraded and the room was huge with everything we needed. Breakfast was lovely both mornings. Plenty of choice including western and some local delicacies, especially enjoyed the king coconuts to drink. I’ve no doubt we’ll be back to use as our base in Nairobi again.

This was our groups first stay at the Tamarind Tree Hotel and it won’t be our last, the staff is absolutely amazing and the hotel is top notch as well. We at 2 nights at the restaurant in the hotel and our waitress Evelyn was very kind, professional and attentive. She made great food recommendations and made us feel at home. I highly recommend this restaurant and ask for Evelyn. I don’t recall the bartenders name but the bar service was also great!

My spouse and I reserved a three-day visit and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Tamarind Tree. The hotel is in excellent condition, with staff members who are both welcoming and attentive. The individuals working in the restaurant were fantastic, and our room attendant Polycarp did an outstanding job keeping our room in pristine condition throughout our visit. I will definitely suggest this place to others and intend to return for another stay with my Family Next year, Perfect Hotel!
