this was the 8 or 9th time I've stayed at the resort, as ever the staff are extremely friendly and nothing seems to be too much trouble. They even remembered my name from previous visits. The rooms are rustically furnished but very comfortable, the resort is right on the beach allowing easy access to walk the sands. Although purely vegetarian... More

Nothing special in bamburi beach. There is nothing except the hotel. The sea is not clean and the beach is not comfortable because of the local guys, every moment they tried to sell something. In general, there is nothing in bamburi or nyali beach, if u want to go mombasa u should choose really really good hotel.
