A very nice and natural place to eat or spend a night at Bamburi beach. The place is mainly made of wood trunks, compared to the neighbour hotels a real jewel.

The place was clean, plenty of hot water in the shower, beautiful location, but a bit on rustic side. Couldn't have had a better view of the ocean from the patio. Some of the staff had no idea about PR or the manner in which to approach customers. If God permits and the rates remain reasonable my wife and I...

Ziwa is located off the Mombasa-Malindi highway and is clearly marked (thankfully) so we didn't get lost. The staff were hospitable; helping us with our luggage and very hospitable. The rooms are cottage like with either the seaview or garden....

I had booked three rooms/apartments for our group. When we arrived nobody bothered with us and it took almost 3 hours to organize our accommodation despite having booked in advance with a 25% deposit having been paid. We had to carry all the luggage to our rooms ourselves with no help from any of the resort staff. We spent a...
