6/10 Good

I have been many times to this hotel over the past 8 years but on this occasion it was not up to its previous good standard. The safe in the room could not lock and I reported it everyday and each time the answer was the technician is off today it will be fixed tomorrow. As you know tomorrow never comes, equally the safe was not fixed for the duration of my stay. The light in the bathroom above the wash basin took 5 days to be fixed (needed a new bulb). The wash basin was not emptying and overflowed if you did not watch it and turn off the taps. Just cleaning your teeth was enough to cause overflow. That was still not fixed when I left. Overall a disappointing experience after all my good times at this hotel

Great Place to Stay for the Authentic Experience
Great experience! The room was so spacious, well kept, and decorative of the local area! Lots of cool artwork in the hotel, that had a resort feel. Also, the sports bar next door serves great food, with a fun staff, and great music.

Solid midrange hotel.
Very quiet this time due to election unrest. Popular bar with live music. Staff friendly. Beds average and beach a 2 min walk.

Awesome place
The hotel has a relaxed vibe, no rules or regulations so you're made to feel at home as soon as you arrive. Staff are very friendly and always happy to help. Rooms are clean and modern and the mbusi choma (goat) is fresh and delicious. Easily the best place that I've stayed at on the coast and I'll definitely be heading there again when I'm back in Kenya. And to top it all off the rates are reasonable. Kamaha rocks 🤘🇰🇪🇰🇪
