I have been there recently for one night only (even though we intended to stay longer). I was lucky not to have my money stolen - I found out later other people have, as posts here say. But I did not even leave my belongings to the staff or in their safe, carried it with me all the time. I have never ever seen such place, the staff is horrible and the atmosphere is literally creepy. The fact we did jokes that they maybe want to kill us all says it all.. I'm sure those that have been there know what I'm talking about. I don't understand positive reviews on this page, maybe something changed in more recent time, but seriously, don't go there: it's unsafe and unpleasant.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This place is for everyone who wants to break out of the normal wheel, to come back to the simplicity of life and its natural beauty. Overseeing the Indian Ocean, at the entrance of a Mangrove creek, surrounded by a local Fishermans village & historical sites, away from the rest of the world, the Beach is hidden and wants to be discovered. Stranded here, those moments of life one spends at the Beach become timeless. The Beach Bandas are built in a unique African style, the meals are freshly prepared on a local charcoal grill, and if someone wants to break out for a nightlife session, Mtwapa itself is a young and hip town, that offers many interesting places... It should be noted that the hostel and its amenities are no longer associated with the "BAR" these are shortly to become 2 separate co-located business's. However, guests at the hostels will be most welcome in the revised bar. The proposed name of the bar will be Sunset Havana, partially due to superb views and ambience. Clearly major changes will take time, but be assured of revised (downward) prices and standards of cleanliness and friendliness ... more less
