Stayed in this Makwetu because I wanted to cook for myself. The studio offered basic amenities for this - no blender or coffee maker though. Place is clean and quiet. Access to the hotel can be problematic as it is off the route used by public vehicles. once has to call a tuktuk or taxi.

Makwetu villas sounds ideal for a good family get away especially based on the location and accessibility to most amenities , however that's the only good thing that they have to offer. Check-in : The staff and manager were not prepared at all when we arrived. They did not seem to have the details yet we had booked and paid... More

Absolutely wonderful and small place for a quiet and refreshing getaway at a fair price. Excellent for families, friends and couples looking to self cater and bond with each other in their own unique way (I recommend you carry your own fun and games ideas or activities), or any individual who wants some alone time to rejuvenate, meditate or simply...

A great place to relax with family. The kids had an amazing time at the pool and running around on the grounds. Susan was very welcoming even with our last minute booking, and we cannot thank Chef Martin enough for the meals including the special breakfast we had requested. It was our 3rd time in one year to visit Makwetu... More

I put up at Makwetu for a week recently and all I have is good news, a perfect location for business and relaxation at the same time. The place is perfectly clean and the staff very courteous , beautiful grounds and clean swimming pool. We felt very much at home and cant wait to get there again. Mureithi.

I and my family have stayed at Makwetu Resorts in Mombasa twice in the recent past. This is definately "a home away from home". The place in neat with very friendly staff. I liked the available self catering facilities and the fact that one can hire cooks. I beautiful cosy place to say.

A homely and friendly place for those with young families and those who prefer the informality of self catering holidays. The lawn around the swimming pool is a great place to spend a lazy relaxing day and for the avid golfer, there is a golf course a 2 minute drive away that shares a fence with Makwetu!!

My general experience with Mombasa town is that it can get really hot and mosquito infested, but at Makwetu with the beach a short walking distance away, you constantly feel the refreshing sea breeze. It's very unlike a hotel where it feels like there are thousands of people walking in and out. Makwetu was nice, clean, quiet and with a... More

I visited Makwetu and its one of the most unspoilt hotels in Mombasa. Not too crowded, the gardens are wonderful, the pool and the staff very nice. The newly constructed studio apartments are just great. Nice finishing and would recommend anyone going to Mombasa - Kenya to use them. They are self catering but all through when i stayed there,...
