Stayed at the Mombasa Continental result for a seminar in January 2016. What used to be a prime location in Shanzu is now suffering from neglect and in a dire need of serious change. The hotel is bland in every sense. No attention given at all to the grounds which look like a semi desert, the food was just well...food...

Stayed here while attending training for five days. The only highlight of my stay there was the beach. Everything else was not very pleasant. The food was o.k the first 2 days, but by the third day, it was boring as it was the same thing. The room was spacious and the beds ok. But everything else in the room...

An otherwise great facility, let down by lack of investment and struggling to regain its former glory. Service is not up to par for a hotel of this caliber. Although the staff are courteous, save for one that ruined my day - but lets not use her to judge the other good staff. The good facilities that existed before are...

Stayed for 3 nights during a business conference. The place is stuck in the 70s era. Torn worn out carpets , old lumpy mattresses 5 very old tvs with only basic local channels, broken beach beds , poor menu offering. Only plus is the staff. Very pleasant bunch.

Location very good, security very good, nothing to worry about. Occupancy perhaps 10% due to tourist down turn, I felt safe in Mombasa. Service friendly and trying to do the best in challenging circumstances. Reasonable offering for breakfast, ate outside the hotel. Give Mombasa a chance. Word of caution, when leaving the Moi international Airport, road are bad, nothing constructive...

I had reserved a room at this hotel for a 2 night stay but when I arrived, I left for a better accommodation. I asked to see the room before paying and that turned out to be the best decision. The rooms we dull looking, small, old. The bathroom looked a bit unsanitary, the television was outdated. Even though they...

Great location on Serena Beach (one of the quietest and best on the North Coast). The hotel itself could do with updating but for money (we paid $90 per night half board) it's excellent value, food is above average as is the service. Would certainly recommend.

We had a whole 3 week vacation here and we loved every moment of it. Nice mix of food, romantic candle light dinner just outside the main entrance and best seaview from the room. Specious, clean rooms and really great and helpful people!
