Staff is awesome! Operations and building is not great.

Review by jessicakR7388MP Ottawa, Canada

We had the most welcoming and caretaking staff. They tended to us and our needs but there was definitely some deception from the advertisement.

Rooms are definitely in need of upgrading. Bathrooms look like hostel style with cold trickling shower heads, rust everywhere and it’s salt water so be prepared for that...

Also the best time to take showers are midday since it’s solar power that makes the water warm.

Beds are awkwardly uncomfortable. Not all rooms automatically come with nets but you need them. Close your bathroom door at night so you don’t get mosquitos. You’re in malaria central.

Know this accommodates massive groups so lineups are massive and meat is tough.

Again, this was the best staff in terms of kindness and care. Just a bummer that this place was beautiful on the outside and disastrous on the inside.

Friendly staff

My husband and i really did enjoy ourselves throughout our stay. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.Special thanks to Titus, Justin at the bar and Godfrey not to forget Lucy at the restaurant who went above and beyond to meet our needs,She was just exemplary.Thank you Lucy for the special tea and the Tamarind Juice that was not available for the 2days but when you heard we were checking out and I wanted to try it while I was still in mombasa you made it happen 😊. Downside was that the toilet water pressure was not good and took so long for the tunk to refill.

Amazing Experience At Bamburi Beach Resort

Bamburi beach resort is amazingly wonderful, from the kind reception, staff and great food offered. It's an ideal family resort cum business trip. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone to visit...

I'll definitely find time and get back.

Worst Beach Hotel I have ever known!

Our travel agent made a booking for us at this hotel. Everything went wrong from time of checking in till checking out making a 5 night stay look like a 5 year prison sentence. To start with, we arrived rather early at 9am due to our early morning flight...

We were made to sit at a mosquito infested reception as we waited (we would expect to be put in a courtesy room, since it's clear we were clients). After a lot of proding, we were moved to an empty hot conference room, as we needed to work in the meantime, instead of being feasted on by mosquitoes.

Then I was checked in at 11am into a room with Zero wi fi connectivity (because it's too far from reception to relieve Wi Fi - what an excuse!) I was forced to buy Wi Fi. By noon, I was very hungry due to the early morning but there was no restaurant to serve, I had to endure hunger pangs.

The room looks like a luxurious cell in Prison Break, with uncomfortable seats, dusty beddings, a high bed with a slice of a mattress, toilets that flush badly, beat up showers, salty water as courtesy room water, TV that is poorly tuned to free to air... The hotel blocks look like the dilapidated abandoned Mobutu Palace which use a manual key and lock, AC that blows more hot than cold... Barely somewhere u could do anything for work.

I later found out it has some rules like a maximum prison.... you cannot have someone from outside go past lobby, and should you incur a bill, you are nagged to pay as soon as you incur instead of at checkout.... As if you plan to escape (I hope the prison analogy now makes sense).

At the restaurant, they serve fermented cold milk, and if you complain to the waiters, instead of correcting, they justify that it is freshly delivered (it's me tasting it all wrong). The waiters themselves have the stance of death row prisoners with nothing to loose!

At check out, it's like u have to clear with the lead guard (cashier) instead of a polite receptionist ensuring your bills are in order.

In the end, it was a pleasure checking out and not checking in, and I regret ever having the hotel booked for me by the dammed travel agent (who probably got a higher commission on this hotel than genuine 4 & 5 star.
