My wife and I visited this hotel - travelling from Nairobi - in September 2016 - for a honeymoon break. Ok let's start with some positive elements of our seven night stay. The location is fabulous - you are literally seconds from Bamburi beach - which is a breath-takingly beautiful beach - despite being reported "dirty". Upon arrival we found...

I stayed at Kenya Bay Hotel from 29th December to 3rd January. I went there with my husband and 3 teenage children. I was not very impressed with the reception area...the management had not made much effort to spruce up/decorate the hotel...it was the festive season for heaven's sake! The receptionist was however very friendly and we were shown to...

We have visited this hotel a few times and it still is our favourite. Our stay was very good starting with Jimmy in the reception and his efficient service in getting our rooms. The rooms were very good and comfortable. The breakfast and dinner was good. Their afternoon tea and especially cake was tasty. We encountered no problems whatsoever and...

I recommend Kenya Bay Beach Hotel as a honeymoon destination to anyone looking for a nice, quite place to just laze and enjoy your selves and go for the all inclusive. My wife and I went for our honeymoon for six nights and wished we could have spent more days because I must have gained at least 2 kilos in...

Food was excellent, not to mention the pool, evening shows, front desk staff (jimmy), massage (Kibibi). The only down size was lack of a gym and the cleanliness of the rooms. Definitely there is a dire need to train the housekeeping staff as to what needs to be done.

Living on past glory, this well located hotel needs major renovations. Good views of the ocean, beach front property on a very busy beach area. Average food, lifeless bars. Good breakfast options. Has mosquitoes in the rooms and no nets. Prices are good

My friend from Scandinavia comes to Kenya every November to visit me. We usually stay at Kenya Bay Beach Hotel, but this time he wanted two nights at Kenya Bay and two nights at the more expensive Whitesands, out of curiosity. I told him Whitesands is a waste of money. It's the same beach! Why pay twice as much? Well,...

We flew to Mombasa on Tuesday 29/11/16, and we were met by the representative of the hotel, at Moi international Airport. Every thing was arranged for us as soon as we got to the hotel.
