“KENYA BAY BEACH HOTEL”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

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.

My family and I happened to visit the coast and we boarded Kenya bay beach hotel, we got more than we expected as their rates are very affordable and the package comes in handy....great meals and accommodation was to the point...It was a 3 night stay that was spectacular and was it not for the fact I had to report back to work, I would have extended my stay....the employees are all so friendly and ready to help at any time...keep up guys, for sure we will come again.

Stayed at the Kenya Bay Beach hotel for 4 nights on the recommendation of my fellow travellers who had stayed there last year and I wasn't disappointed. The location is perfect, right on the beach, it's very clean and the grounds are well kept. Our sea-view room was a nice size complete with air conditioner, fridge, safe etc. The only bad thing was the towels - not exactly the white, fluffy kinds you come to expect from hotels.The restaurant has a nice selection and the food very tasty - especially the made to order crepes and omelettes in the morning. The Catering Manager was extremely friendly and made sure we were having a pleasant experience. Two of the nights we stayed up for the entertainment - the dancers were amazing but the DJ was just so-so, could still dance though. It was very quiet this time of year which was great.....we were not disturbed at the pool at all. The beach salesmen can get quite pushy but that's to be expected anywhere. And the internet went down quite frequently but there is wi-fi in all the common areas (and even on our balcony) so I wasn't too bothered. Il Covo restaurant next door is fabulous - the biggest prawns you've ever seen! Overall, a really good experience and I would go back.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money for a sea-view room

...and another beautiful vacation at the Kenya Bay Beach Hotel has ended. We first stayed in this hotel last year. We loved the service, the quality of the accommodations offered, the food, the ambience a year ago and everything is as beautiful now as it was then. We could go on and on extolling the hotel's wonderful features. This will definitely be our HOTEL OF CHOICE in Mombasa when we come again. We would strongly recommend this hotel to those who are travelling to Kenya and want to stay in a hotel that is right on the doorstep of the Indian Ocean beachfront with good service, THIS IS DEFINITELY THE PLACE!

Upon arrival, we were met with very tired looking receptionist. the porter looked like he was being forced to be there. It was only 7p.m. The greeting was half hearted.
The room (standard room) was very nice with a balcony. Spacious with big beds, comfy. T.V satellite channels rubbish as we could hardly watch anything. The bathroom looked nice but the tub was super dirty. We could almost see a sandy footprint. Big disappoitment as we had to disinfect it with Dettol and let the water run. Carry slippers to use in th tub!!! You cant be sure they wash it.
The toiletries were ok. Soap and some awful fragranced shower gels in re-used bottles with faded trademarks. If hygiene is a factor, they do not change your towels every day so be careful how you use yours. If you leave it on the floor or seat, you will find it nicely folded out and placed in the bathroom or on the seat! Shocking.
Besides that,the food is great and the waiters are very friendly and nice. You will feel the value for money after the visit to the simple dining. You will be happy during your stay. Food is great with plenty of variety. The soups are delicious. The main course has good variety of local and international dishes and the desserts are just ok, nothing extraordinary. The manager is also very good who keeps an eye on things.Fruits also in plenty. However, not much entertainment at night, just soft music in the background that may skip once in a while. (it adds to laughter anyway! haha)
The pool is nice,standard and you can see the magnificent view of the ocean; also from the rooms, to the grounds and also at the restaurant. There are plenty of activities around like boat rides, surfing, etc. The beach boys may disturb a little by hovering but once they see you are not interested, you have peace.
Few minutes from Malls, hotels, restaurants, Il Covo a minute away,butterfly center, go-karts and other nice places to visit nearby.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice. It depends with what you want to pay. Standard rooms are next to the recepti...
