We had booked 5 rooms and were told that we were getting special discounts but when I checked with some other parties in the hotel with similar number of people, they were given much more discounts than we were. In spite of informing them that we are the company auditors no special discounts were provided.

We checked in on Aug 13th around dinner time and were not even provided with a welcome drink at time of checking in.

Breakfast was the same for all the 4 days stay. some days have waffle, muffins, change fruit selection, change some cereals rather than just cornflakes and weetabix.

Morning hot water service timing were not preferable.

Were not able to make any local calls from the hotel.

Overall reception staff were very friendly and helpful.
Shows were excellent in the evening.

My wife and I were very happy with the two day, two night stay at KBBH. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and the location was perfect. This Hotel was extremely nice by Kenyan standards. As long as you understand this is no North American 4-star hotel. It would definitely be a reasonable 3 star here, in my opinion. The food was the tastiest we had found during our stay in Nairobi and Mombasa. The price was very very good compared to their competition.
The people on the beach will swarm you to buy something from them. You have to have a firm "NO" so you can enjoy time alone on the beach. The water is very warm. We did buy a sale catamaran ride on the ocean for about $20 USD.
We will stay here again when we come back!

Room Tip: Of course, ask for a room close to the water and then you can watch the evening performers from your...

From the amicable staff, good food, and the amazing location/view. Kenya Bay Beach Hotel was the best choice that I could of made. Price was not only reasonable, but fairly cheap compared to the other hotels/resorts in the area. The staff was the best part of the stay. They answered all my questions, and even took an interest in getting to know me. They even arranged several of my dinner plans and exercursions. The view is AMAZBALLS! You right on the beach, and even from the hotel's pool you have an excellent view of the Indian Ocean. The food was good! Local cuisines with international options. The rooms.......................a bit outdated. But overall the stay was pleasant.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean front room

it was a good choice for holidays.

Price was good, after good discount.
Room, facility are excellent.
Nice view of the beach.
stuff & manager are supportive & cooperative, helped me a lot for many issues.

small problem, the internet is quite un-stable there.
they give me a room which is far from the lobby, so not easy to get the wifi in room, need to work at lobby, and there is quite a lot of mosquito.... it made me crazy when I was workinging.
their dinner supply stops early... so many times when I would like to order some food around 8pm, they will not be able to do anything.

and 2 small problems, the room which I stayed having water leakage problem from the top.
And no one help me to solve the telephone problem in my room.

Room Tip: try to select room nearby the lobby, which will give you stronger internet signal. enjoy your break...

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
