Reviewed July 29, 2012

Set a litle back from the main road, but transportation is not a problem to get here. Taxi's or the Matatus/tuk-tuk's are fine. Its an nice property, however the hot water schedule was confusing and not explained at check in. The place was almost empty as I imagine the high season was not in effect in mid-july

The reception area is beautiful and the staff were really efficient and friendly. Great location on the beach (which was amazing). Staff at the poolside were very good, always happy to provide mats and towels for the loungers. The rooms were very nice, well maintained by the housekeeping staff. Garden team also kept the grounds loking neat. It felt like a much more expensive hotel than the amount I paid. I would happily return.

It was such a great pleasure being in The Kenya Bay Beach Resort and I am going to bring my family soon. I liked this experience because of great beach, great property specially the pool area and the amenities in the room. I liked the following at the resort:-

1. Extremely courteous staff who offered me world class service

2. A great reception area and smiling staff, I think the person at the reception was extremely pleasing and genuine in courtesy. Thank God I didn’t get fake smiles anywhere on the campus.

3. A great pool area including, wonderful lighting, presence of security and the furniture in the open area. Coconut trees are so great.

4. Food quality was amazing, very hygienic, very nutritious, very tasty and a wide spread. Having 24 hours tea is a such a great idea. Such a large dining room having wonderful view was so refreshing.

5. Room was so amazing, thanks for giving me the one with a great view. Two side opening room is also good idea. Amenities in the room were world class too, great AC, Sony TV, Fridge, great intercom, sufficient hangers, safe locker, Sockets, linen, curtains, pillows, size, shape and position of the bed, a great bathroom having wonderful lighting and ceramics and clean and sufficient number of towels – all adds up to a memorable experience.

6. Check out was also smooth and handled very well by the same receptionist and Manoj and they made me feel absolutely at home. I was never at stress at any given time during my two days of stay. The same opinion was shared by the Government officer who was travelling with me.

Room Tip: All rooms offer equal opportunity because the best view has been kept for the open veranda and the d...

Awesome place...in a Kenyan way I can say its a great place to spend the weekend! Great value for money. It's also low season and therefore the beach front was just awesome. The manager there was great and somehow we got the premium rooms which are of best class.

Quick review : great service , great rooms, good value and a good breakfast to boost. Definitely coming back soon!! Will post some photos

i stayed here for a long weekend for both business and short holiday.
everything was perfect, the room was great and the balcony overlooking the ocean was grand. although my air conditioner was broken, there was a permanent breeze coming in from the balcony and if it got drafty all i had to do was shut the balcony door., i had read lots of reviews about this hotel and i must say that the bad ones are exxergerated. the hotel is fine.
i was alone and i enjoyed it. lovely beach, great room very good reception and the staff was so friendly. am definately coming back here next month!

Room Tip: any room here will do
