I stayed there for 3 days, i must say that this is a hell of a place. The entrace looks like a semi-desert. Grass, flowers and BUSHES scream out for attention. Grass is yellow on the inner court, the place where they have the swimming pool. This place looks like it was top in the 80's, because there's still SHARP...

Thank you very for taking your valuable time to comment on your stay at Mombasa Continental Resort. True the entrance gardens are dry to due to the fact that the sprinkler we use to water the grounds had gone technical. The coast on the other hand has undergone long periods of time without rain and this has affected most of...

Definitely a once beautiful place. Unfortunately so run down now. Many things almost falling apart in the rooms. Restaurant arrangements nothing to write home about. Food leaves a lot to be desired. It might be very useful to close and do some significant renovations and rebranding

Thank you very much for commenting about your stay at Mombasa Continental Resort. It was a wonderful place as you mentioned and we are working round the clock to bring the glory back. We have engaged a company to refurbish the rooms floor by floor, room by room and wing by wing instead of closing down completely. The hotel was...

Thank you Japhet for your comments. We regret that the gym did not open on time. As for the fish on the buffet, we always write and display the name of the fish . If it is red snapper, tilapia or mutton, chicken etc, we display a small board in front of the chafer dish. Additionally, the same is shown...

The photos we were shown when booking our holiday were very old and outdated, probably from when the hotel was first built. We had to reject the first "THREE" rooms, due to poor electrical, state & conditions of the rooms, and the fourth was to some levels, acceptable. Please see the comments from the attached photos;

Thank you Milly, for comments about your room. Ever since we had problems from the neighbouring country and travel bans placed on some parts of Kenya, the tourist numbers went down. We are glad that peace has been restored and travel bans withdrawn and soon we will see return of tourists All the other comments made are matters to do...

Love the AC rooms, bar and well hidden underground night club. The Wi-Fi speed is acceptable. Location is ideal and quiet. Watch the menu...very basic except breakfast.....good heavy breakfast. Good service within measure time. Be patient. Staff can direct you to other venues for an all rounded experience. Keep an eye out for the Chairman!!

Stayed in dec 2016. House keeping poor. Great hotel with state of art conference facilities.but not maintained. Had visited this place when it was run by intercontinental some years back, service was superb then. Lacks basic neatness, a cardinal requirement for a hotel. Wifi poor in the rooms, basically all sports facilities are run down. They replaced all the old...

We enjoyed the New Year's Eve Party in this hotel. Great Atmosphere, helpful staff, good company, beautiful location, delicious food. There was a cabaret of acrobats - they seemed good but unfortunately, it was difficult to see them as there was a spot light blinding the audience. The evening finale of fireworks over the Indian Ocean was spectacular

Sure, it has an amazing beach view both during the day and night time, but the stupid security system they use on the doors is basically trash because 98% of the time the key card doesn't work. You'll have to make countless visits to the reception to ask to be relocated or the problem to fixed, but you'll have to...
