We visited Kobe Suites on the advice of friends and we're really glad we took their suggestion. From airport pickup to the last minute, everything was tops. Every section of the hotel (food and beverage, reception, maintenance, pool, housekeeping) is clearly hitting their marks. The food menu was well-varied, as were the daily specials. Great view of the ocean, and one can walk out a good ways at low tide to explore. It's a short ride to Watumu if you're inclined to visit other restaurants, if you need an ATM, or just want to try to look for souvenirs. Best for couples, although the families also seemed to enjoy themselves. A small and intimate property where you feel well-taken care of. I hope we can visit again.
Hotel has nice rooms, two pools, a good restaurant, and an amazing beach! It was so clear and when the tide was out you could walk so far out in shallow water, this would be great for kids. We walked down the beach also to the coral reefs, and were not bothered by anyone. There is a small market set up, so we bought some things inexpensively just to support them since they left us alone. The sunsets were amazing and it was such a nice place to stay, relax, and short tuk tuk ride to other restaurants if you wanted. We were two families with kids, but it would be ideal for couples and friends also.
A three night stay in Mid August, enjoyed it immensely. The manager was very accommodating allowing our photo shoot and a late checkout on leaving day. Food excellent, rooms, superb, beach fabulous, pools lovely for me too cold for wife. Clean, professional, friendly. I can understand the complaints but it’s important to recognise that some hotels have standards that guests aren’t able to rise too. Beach bar was beautiful, the big lounge beds lush. All in all it was a pleasure and we will definitely return.
In principle, I should not write a recommendation for this wonderful place, because then it will be known to all, but I can not keep it to myself, I want to share our experience in this little paradise. The place is wonderful, the rooms are clean, spacious and very nice. The whole environment is beautiful, well maintained and clean (although there are very nice animals everywhere). The sea, the garden, the pool, the lounge, the restaurant, the reception, every place is welcoming.... The staff is incredibly friendly, accommodating and fun, but also very discreet when you want them to be. Breakfast is excellent, and the food for lunch and dinner is delicious and very varied. I can recommend the pasta prepared Italian style, but also the traditional Swahili dish and not to forget the fresh fish from the sea. Thank you to the whole Kobe team for the great time we had in your house.…
Beautiful place ruined by an extremely rude and arrogant manager. Such a shame as otherwise great location and nice staff who are unfortunately turned to be unpleasant by the manager who seems to be terrorising everyone around including guests and is extremely disrespectful to even his usual customers. To be avoided as long as that person is working there and to quote him “making his rules and doing what he wants in his house” 😀🤦♂️
