We just returned from a great week in Kenya. Mombasa was a little overwhelming when we rode through after an all night flight. When we arrive at the hotel it felt very welcoming. Staff was across the board wonderful and the setting was beautiful.
After a stressful journey, getting to the Papillon was luxury. The welcome was very friendly. My sea facing room was wonderful and very clean. The staff could not do enough to make sure I was comfortable. I enjoyed the food very much. Would recommend this...More

Yes. We read reviews stating the air was not available 24 hours but we had it whenever we needed it for no extra fees in the oceanfront room. There was also a powerful ceiling fan we enjoyed especially when we pulled the mosquito net back. We never saw a mosquito.

Hello, as we went to this hotel through the travel agency I am not sure if there is availability of the emal plan upgrade directly at the hotel. But i think that it cant supposed a problem if they offer AI plan at the hotel, best would be to ask directly the hotel. So would I do regarding the entertainment. There were a few animators taking care of people, but most what I saw were adults. I am sure they would prepare something special for your children if neccessary but it is truth I did not see many children there and if yes, they were spending time with their parents on the beach or sea. Sorry I couldnt have helped you better.
