“Will surely come back!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

It a very beautiful hotel.., the services were excellent...the food was very good, and the waiters were always helpful. But i find the beds too hard to sleep on and put some tv on the rooms! I would highly recommend this hotel to couples who need some time out of the city life.

Your villa, the pool, the reception, the beach and the fantastic restaurant are all 2-3 minutes away making the whole resort accessible and enabling you to enjoy every aspect of it...
We were in a VERY large group of up to 40 people, not easy for any hotel to handle, however, the staff at Kola Beach attended to our every request - even to the extent of providing a personal chef for our party to cater for the vegetarian cuisine requirements.

The food on the a la carte menu was outstanding - ranging from fresh fish, to lobster, squid and fresh tiger prawns, being an Italian resort, the pasta was of course superb.
The pool area is very nice and uniquely laid out with white four posted beds and lounge chairs, it looks very chic. The beach, is completely isolated and feels like a private beach. It is very clean with no seaweed and very beautiful.

The majority of our party had not even heard of Mambrui, let alone Kola Beach, but we all left knowing that it is one of the best resorts on the Kenyan coast.
