Despite good, polite staff, clean rooms, the food in this hotel was just terrible. I stayed Dec 23-28, and it was basically a Rip off. No, I won't come back here anytime, even if somebody held a gun to my head!
We stayed at the hotel between 17th and 23rd of December 2011. Hotel is very well maintained. The rooms are nice and comfortable . The food in the main restaurant was ok while the Italian restaurant (which also is all inclusive) was fantastic. The staff working at the hotel is extremely helpful and very nice. Even though we had to check out at 10 am , we got another room (slightly smaller) only for our use until the time of our departure (5p.m.)German lady, who makes sure that her guests get everything that they need.. The main hotel's menager is very a very nice The hotel is a rather quiet place and most of the guests are german pensioners but it is close to the biggest disco in the Eastern Africa called the Tembo Disco and very close to the Haller Park, where you can feed the giraffes by yourself.
We definately recommend that hotel for a nice and relaxing stay in the sun.
I have stayed in various Mombasa hotels and Bahari Beach was average. The service was good; great pool (thankfully did not have to bribe the pool boy for a sun bed); awesome entertainment, although I think they should have that every night during the holiday season at least; the breakfast was good as well; and the room was clean and well-organized.
On the down side, the food (which was buffet) was hit or miss depending on the day; since we were locals the staff wasn't as attentive to us as they were to the tourists; and the beach in that area is awful - I prefer Bamburi or even better, the south coast.
Overall our stay was not too bad considering how much we paid for the place.
Cosy hotel, friendly staff, enjoyed the breeze in the hammocks on the cliff, what a view! even our little one had the time of his life, with Mr Amos, John and the rest of the restaurant staff, being so welcoming to children as well. A lovely hotel to relax in Mombasa... we had a delightful holiday and came back well rested and happy.
Nice people, nice and clean rooms, no luxury, but good value for the money. I definitely recommend. What I liked the most is the lovely italian restaurant there :-)
