My partner and I opted to stay at Bahari Dhow as it advertised as a beach front hotel. We had so far had 2 hectic weeks in Kenya and wanted somewhere to relax. When we arrived the staff were nice, the villa manager introduced himself and welcomed us, check in was easy and they took us directly to our room.....

I love this place. Spacious rooms, big swimming pool, ample parking, nice food, close to the beach, relaxing area and don't forget the beach experience. I luck words to describe this place coz it's ideal for the family people. You don't just need to read reviews but make a date

I booked a 'deluxe hotel room' with a balcony but arrived on Easter Weekend to find out that there are no hotel rooms. We were told that we had to share a villa with other people and were shown a dark room with two small single beds and no balcony. This was not the 'deluxe' hotel room I was expecting....

It is relaxed place with a big pool and good access to the beach. Great place for a getaway. The wifi is weak though as is the air conditioning but the villas are spacious. The house keeping is also good though te place looks a bit dated

We went as a couple and were attracted by the pictures and the fact that it was a beach front property. Given that we were on a budget for an Easter weekend break the price also was attractive. Firstly, this is not a hotel. It is more a place for families from Nairobi to come relax at the seaside. It...

We stayed here as a family of 5 for just over a week and it was perfect for us. With a local supermarket nearby, you can stock up on food which you can cook as there is a kitchen with all facilities. The restaurant has great food if preferred, and there are lots of good local restaurants too. The hotel...

Nice location right on the beach, but the beachboys are between you and the sea... And they come after you as soon as you leave your sunbed to go into the water... Bad experience, but the problem is in most beaches in Kenya...

I loved my stay it was a week of bliss and pampering. The food is very good particularly their curries, I was pleasantly surprised each time I tasted dinner. The beachfront is amazing for relaxing I can't count the number of times I fell asleep outside. Breakfast selection is limited, and fruits are not in plenty as I would have...

We had a wonderful, relaxing 10 days at Bahari Dhow. The beach seating area was very nice with a great breeze coming off the ocean when it got too warm at the poolside. Staff was friendly, the place was a bit past its prime, but still comfortable and extremely affordable. The kitchen was stocked with bare bones equipment and the...
